Time to start focusing on local government 50 state like Howard Dean wanted

We have seen the results of what has happen with the Republicans gerrymandering now we must focus on a 50 state plan like Howard Dean wanted. We are fighting a uphill battle because More people voted for House Dems then Rep during the last election. Unless we focus on all 50 states and local government the Republicans will keep control of the House. We must crush them at the local level. We need a way to focus and we need to start planning the next elections now for local government elections. Get every seat in every nation filled out by a Dem.

Do not forget a lot of places had NO dems running in it to challenge the Rep locally we need to change that.

1. The key is getting turnout in off years.

Our base was depressed in 2010, and theirs was fired up.

2. we were told that our base we depressed this time and look what happen

 

We need to set up ways to overcome. We need a grassroots movement as strong as the Presidents national movement for President. Take that model and set it up on a local government scale. We need a People Activated way of reporting areas that do not have Dems running in them and get them in. We need to support local government from the start now. We have seen what Obama's model can do national lets turn that into a local event and start while peoples minds are still fresh.

3. My district in WA. State was gerrymandered. How ironic it's Dave Reichert's

district. the Rep used as the go between between Cantor and the FBI agent now being
investigated in the Petraeus Scandal. If you saw the map and understood the area it's
a joke. My village is a bright blue, diverse, progressive community with a substantial population.
They had to cross the Cascade Mt.s and include communities far, far away that have completely
different issues, industries, and politics in order to guarantee Reichert a seat for life. He's
now nearly untouchable barring a scandal of some sort.

Reichert is a Norquest signee, a rubber stamper that has never produced a single piece of
meaningful legislation. He just coasts. Yet Bush and all the top Repukes come here every year
and hold huge fundraisers supporting him.

I am praying (and I'm an atheist) that he is somehow muddied in this Petraeus Scandal. I don't
believe for a moment this FBI guy under investigation just happened to pick him to go to
with his concerns. Reichert is a puppet and owes much to his Repuke handlers .
