III Congress: First Convention
If we are modeling ourselves along the lines of the original American Congresses, it's time to set a time and place to get face-to-face. I know TL is working on an initial draft of a Mission Statement and I suspect we'll work through that process online and have it ratified before we meet, but we'll just have to see how it all plays out.
All of you - whether you have stepped forward to be a Delegate or just a member - don't wait for others to make suggestions or take point. There are NO stupid suggestions, so speak up! And remember, on this blog you WILL NOT endure ad hominem attacks. None of us will tolerate it. We'll talk issues and plans of action, not personalities. If we all work together we can prevent Alinsky tactics from taking over.
So for this post let's decide where and when we will first meet one another and convene the III Congress properly. When the world goes to hell, we will have a political structure in place to fill the vacuum. By the way, I need to update the map above and add a few more states.
Don't be disappointed by our numbers, or lack thereof. I know many people are watching to see if this is just another circle-jerk before they sign on. Let's prove we mean business.
So folks, where & when? Anyone (members included) may weigh in, but only Delegates may vote.
I'd say let's do it properly, inside a building and not out in a field. If we are to be a Congress with legitimacy, then let us conduct ourselves with dignity.
