I've set up an alliance with be_bold
, a community for grassroots activism. By joining forces, we can be more effective in covering both the activist and the politicist aspects of our efforts. If you're interested, check them out!
If you know of other potential allies, let me know and I'll add them to our info page. edit

P.S. I've been taking a bit of a hiatus to degauss from politics, but I'll be back next week.
P.P.S. Okay, so I'm still doing stuff in RL trying to keep Dino "the Dinosaur" Rossi from taking WA state. *shudder*
It's been said that before (likely also by me) that the Republicans know how to define liberals, and set the debate on their terms. One way they do this is language.
Pro-life. It suggests that this person is merciful, and anyone not for life is a baby killer. Sanctity of Marriage. It conjurs up images of what is pure, Godly, just, holy, and right. Anyone trying to change that is disrupting the consecration of Marriage.
We need to choose loaded language, and use it against them. Let's take gay marriage as an example.
Rather than Gay marriage, which makes people feel icky, call it Equal Rights, what's Fair and Equal. Marriage for loving monogomous people. Or, better yet, use the Republican's ideas against them; the boogeyman of big government telling them how to live. Pro-independence, pro-small government, etc.
Maybe I'm not making as much sense as I can. Hrm. Ideas?
