#175 / Grassroots California

Quite a long time ago, now, a group of political friends and I started a group called "Grassroots California." The idea was pretty simple: establish real communications between and then mobilize progressive constituencies throughout the state to assume political power, and to turn California in a new direction.

This was going to be a politics based
not on "party," but on a common commitment to a progressive agenda, with roots in local actions, and in local communities, and with local elected officials playing a key role.

As you might have noticed, that didn't happen.

Could have happened, though. Should have happened! The name is still available. It's still a good idea.
