A progressive coffee party! Let’s do it!

The drupal software used to create their website is opensource.  

We just need some webspace, and some people willing to do promotion on the other blogs like metamars does only in a less condescending way.  We also need someone to start a youtube and facebook group for us. http://drupal.org/

I thought the green tea party would be a good name. No you don’t have to be a green, or a democrat.  You just have to be a progressive.   Our goal will be results on things like government supported universal healthcare, ending the wars, and civil rights.   We don’t  advocate violence, but our main concern is not civility, either.  Our slogan would be something  like “real change!” or “results not hope!”  I don’t think the ofaers  or the kossacks could coopt something like that.

Let’s work together on this.  Many people here have different talents.   I have already created one drupal website  for my linux disto u-lite.  http://u-lite.org .  I don’t have the time to write though, and I know nothing about making youtube videos.

Lord knows I’m not village party shill, so it would be real grassroots, unlike the tea or coffee parties!

Oh, I guess in order to get attention on this blog one needs a music video!

enjoy!

  1. that would be more spunky!  

  2. let’s have a discussion people!

  3. You get yourself a video camera, or a camera that can take video.

    Then you get yourself a youtube account.  Then you upload your video to YouTube.

  4. I think that’s brilliant. I am drinking some Green Tea as I type this.  

  5. Ning is what theFrankFactor.org uses. It’s too graphical, IMO, but it’s highly functional. Frank will probably be happy to give you pointers.

    I’ve heard that Drupal is very powerful, but you need some programming chops to get it going.

    I’ve been a long term member and supporter of the PDA, even though I’ve never been a Democrat. But they are not very aggressive about growing their membership, or going after sitting Dems (Baucus is an exception). I think part of the explanation for what I view as a timid approach is because of the “inside” part of their “inside-outside” strategy. I presume they spend considerable time and energy cultivating relationships, so they’re not about to throw away large numbers of those relationships by announcing that they’re going to aggressively go after anybody who doesn’t meet their standards. Which would probably be most Dems in Congress.

    And this is exactly why you also need groups like the Full Court Press, who don’t have to worry about burning relationships which don’t exist, and further, don’t exist by design.

    A vibrant democratic (small “d”) ecosystem will have many role players, just like any biological ecosystem on Earth have many role players.

    Personally, I’m hoping to help the Green Party start using “green tea party” soon…

    I’m half joking.  If we all joined the coffee party, I think we could just slant it progressive.

    Ugh.  This is just like Republicans and Democrats, but less significant.
