    your issue- has 90% approval, proven to attract non- voters as Ventura in Minnesota, proven to split the GOP as Perot did. This is not rocket science- its Dem Party history, legislative revolutions, New Deal, Civil rights. Read Ackerman, "We the People, The civil rights revolution." This is an easy sell. Women got women's suffrage without even having the vote. Afro-Americans got the vote by exposing the Bull Connors. This is a lot easier, more like the anti-saloon league where you need 20% of swing voters to flip the parties on the issue.

      a long haul and there's a very ugly judiciary in the way. Still worth doing though.

      Sure once I was young and impulsive, I wore every conceivable pin. Even went to socialist meetings, learned all the old union hymns. Ah, but I've grown older and wiser. And that's why I'm turning you in.

        it's the Dems who are against the exceptions clause, afraid of taking Congress and doing something with it. The lessons of FDR, LBJ, are forgotten. The Dems are lost and the GOP knows it.
