Thanks for your hard labor and sharing your experiences with us. Assessing the local lay of the land sound more do-able than trying to change what fat cats in DC do. Also the exact strategy may differ depending where you are. One thing is to show that our ideas will make people's lives better. I've said it elsewhere but I appreciate the libertarians warning about the housing bubble when every one else was saying "home prices never go down".
Maybe we all can give ourselves a homework assignment of figuring out who our local reps are.
