What I'm Trying to Say is:
Direct enough. Simple enough.
I received some excellent ideas from everyone. Although, Daniel, if everyone moved to Canada, where would that leave us, we'd just be importing all our problems. There were some passionate opinions given as well--about education, abortion rights, sexual predator laws, a whole gamut of ideas.
For example, Polanco Consulting wrote
I think we need to organize people like us in our communities. Instead of protesting all of our various problems, we join together on one issue:
I didn't include the issue on purpose. Because her issue is education. Which is a good issue, and one that needs some serious attention. But, while every one can agree that education reform is necessary, if you get three people in a room to talk about it, you're guaranteed to hear at least two diametrically opposed views on what constitutes education reform.
So I took a step backards. And what I came up with--no, what YOU came up with, was Accountability and Transparency.
I think this should be our starting point. This is as nonpartisan as an issue can be.
And you are all welcome to copy my little graphic and use as you wish.
