10. actually what you just said is pretty good on framing the issue
Basically the way that I mean framing the issue is creating the talking points. One of the things I learned from this election and watching it closely is with Karl Rove republicans were able to frame every issue of the election.

I don't like how they did it, but some parts of that might have worked. I liked what you said:

"If we can't depend on our foundation, how long will it take to fall? Today it's one party vs. another. Tomorrow it it's even bigger."

I think we can work off of that. Basically what you just said opens up to Checks and Balances. Because of their control they have majority of everything. This means that we have no checks and balances. Our democracy was built on these principles. Without them we are even closer to not having a democracy. We just need to build on it. I may be wrong on this, but I think it could be very good on creating talking points.
