9. I think that we all should be looking past the Nov. elections.
After the elections, it won't really matter a huge amount who wins - we all lose. It will be better if the president is a Democrat, but with the one likely to be elected, it won't be all that much better. Everything else will still be in Puke hands, so we have our work cut out for us.
I say we take this movement that Dennis has started and we build it up form the ground floor and along with maybe some antiwar/Dean supporters start taking states and congressional districts, mayors' offices and school boards. Maybe talk Dennis into switching from the Dems and getting Greens and others to join and turning this into a new party with the peoples' interests at heart. Sorry, I got lost for a minute in the realm of what could be.
