Nobody here but us hippies!

Well, I just returned from an exciting planning meeting of the Rhode Island chapter of the Progressive Democrats of America. The turnout was phenomenal, a standing room only crowd. It was interesting to see how many older folks turned out. The discontent with today's political establishment was intense. At the same time, many admitted that we're fairly lucky here in lil' Rhody to have pretty decent representation in D.C. A lot of attendees expressed a desire to push back against the plutocratic power grab, and to fight against the misinformation put out by the right. If we do even a fraction of what we talked about we should help move things in a better direction. One of our members was especially keen on promoting progressive voices on radio. He made a great point, that conservative talk radio is so dominant partly because no one has worked hard enough to provide an alternative. All in all the meeting filled me with hope, and determination to keep our positive energy going forward.
