Uncle Chuck Says:
The election didn’t go completely our way and in my opinion, we need to focus on building a movement via issues. What this means is we needed to locate the issues that concern our fellow citizens and then develop Issue Organizing Teams to deal with finding a solution to the issue. Thus, you will be able to develop a reputation by working with others to solve our issues. Also, you will get known in the community and this will enhance your chances to win a local election. Another factor will be the make up of our Issue Organizing Teams because we can have people on these teams from all of our political parties because of the need to solve the issue.
I would like to see the Eleanor Roosevelt Democratic Club be the nucleus for this movement and we can use the positions taken by Bernie Sanders as a guide for our movement. Below is a list from the Bernie Sanders campaign we can focus on.
