    the people governing. Republicans like telling the people what to do and Democrats like doing for the poor. That's how they divided the playing field. There is no room for the people being the referee.
    And that's not just true in Washington. Political organizations on the state level are the same. That's why Dean started up DFA and Obama is continuing with OFA. Neither, unfortunately, have managed to exploit the kind of personal involvement we see here at KOS. I think it's partly a distrust of the electronic infra-structure and an inability to just let people do their thing. The electronic communications component seems to be not just a lack of technical expertise. If it were, then the White House effort wouldn't be so clunky. Ditto for the DNC effort and now OAF. Unless it's an echo, two-way communication is not appreciated.
    The Wells Fargo fellow didn't want to hear Ms. Badro's story. OFA doesn't want to hear stories it hasn't invited, either.

    We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
