Why not reach to other socially consceince groups who are activist and not too far out but could be a benefit to this movemnt? Like for instance environmentalist and animal rights people? I mean if you want to grow and get more people supporting you why not broaden the appeal and reach out to other people? I see too many who want to limit this into nothing but a sterotypical liberal, Democrat Party support group and voter base. That's just wrong....the two main parties are too similar and two wings of the same bird of prey.
If you want to really impact society in a postive healthy way we all need to start to think out outside the box instead of falling for this "we must all be Democrats only and the Republicans are all the enemy" narrow minded party doctrine. This isn't about Left versus Right...this is about benefiting the American citizens and standing up for our rights. It goes way beyond the two main party distraction and false Left/right paradigm. I can't beleive some of you still don't get that.
We must broaden our base and appeal to more of the average American people. I say we should also make overtures to people out there that are already socially conscience and have some polical experence such as enviromentalist and animal rights people after all isn't unrestrained greed in big business harmfully to the environment and ecology with all the destruction of forrest and concreting over the entire countryside?
