18. I would start building a new party by engaging the non-voters.
It's a HUGE pool! A good number of them don't vote because they don't see much difference between the two parties. I am quickly losing hope with the democratic party. Yes, they are not as evil as the repubs, but we are on the same course, no less. Headed toward the same damned cliff, just more slowly.

I agree completely with your comment about revolution. People speak of it glibly without any consideration of what's entailed, & more importantly, what do we put in place after wards. If we don't plan that part, the first part won't matter.

I look at money in politics, a severely compromised media & electronic voting & wonder how the hell we're going to get out of this mess.
