I would like to meet like-minded people in a casual social environment, and make new friends. I would hope to be able to further participate in the political field but I also like hanging out and having fun with people to whom I can relate. I'd like to be able to discuss politics (and some other topics) in a positive and supportive environment, but I do occasionally like to rant. I would hope to also be able to express my beliefs and opinions with folks who share such things because having to clash with people who are of the Right Wing persuasion can be very frustrating.
I would hope that this group will be a good platform for getting out the message of the DFL/Progressive to the public. I would also hope to find a group of people with whom I can work on finding new ways of participating in the political process. Expanding my social life is also a very good thing and I think that this group would be a fine place to start that.
I'm a progressive who worked for Keith Ellison's campaign last year. I draw comic books for fun and political statement. I believe in the DFL/Progressive agenda and hope to work more in politics in the future.
