What decisions do we have to make about politics?

Which politicians to support is what comes first to mind. In fact, that’s *all* that comes to most people’s minds. This itself is our largest problem; our responsibilities *begin* with picking good people to represent us. They don’t end there. We address this problem further here: Citizenry Building:

When choosing politicians, ideally we want someone who thinks as we do, does their homework about what issues need to be addressed and how to address them, and writes, supports, and votes for appropriate legislation to accomplish that. Unless and until we can properly fund our own government, they can’t do this, and it falls to us as their constituents to do it for them. So we need to keep *ourselves* informed about all potential issues, and all proposed solutions, and then inform our representatives of what we want them to do. Issues are tracked Here, proposed solutions are tracked partially there and partially in the ‘Legislation’ links below.

The ‘Politicians’ sections below list the offices to be held, who’s holding them, who’s running for them if anyone has so declared, and what we think of the people in question, if our researchers have had enough time to gather sufficient information to have informed opinions.

This project is to support politicians and potential politicians in forming and pursing progressive agendas, and to replace politicians that are either uninterested in or incapable of pursing such agendas with politicians who will actively pursue them.

Identify Issues and Support Issues:

This function tracks what the representative or candidate is declaring as their intention, and what actions they then take to support it, and also informs that representative or candidate of our opinions of what they are doing and what we would further like to see.

Electoral Support:

This function is the traditional political activism of helping candidates who are pursuing our agenda to get elected or re-elected.

Practices Reform:

The rules, customs, and people of our Federal Congress have conclusively proven that the institution as a whole has been for some time incapable of doing its job, and institutionally uninterested in so doing. The Electoral Support function is working on addressing the people aspect of this; the rules and customs still need to be either revamped or replaced.
