You would not even be here. Remember that. Right now we are in election mode. Primary election mode. I watched a movement build so big in the 90's there was almost a revolution. Then 9-11 happened and millions went right back to sleep. Thousands of the leaders of the movement were also arrested and killed. You're lucky to be part of something way bigger than yourself but if it's not expressed in this one last chance for a change from within by an electoral win, we will wind up in a worse position than we've seen yet.
I've been fighting this fight since 1987 and will be the first to say don't get discouraged from waking people up if we lose. But I'll also be the first to say we will definitely lose if we don't focus on likely primary voters. Otherwise all we're doing is helping phonies write their phony speeches.
