Remember the time when we political Progressives couldn't talk about W in public without whispering and looking over our shoulders? Those times might be gone, but we still might be cautious about who we're with when we talk about our political leanings at all.
This is a group for political Liberals over 50 who will meet in small groups, share a meal and conversation, and know that everyone around us are liberals with progressive tendencies -- and we may not even talk politics all night! We don't believe in long banquet tables and loud rooms. We'll have separate checks, and you'll have a chance to really speak to people that you might even want to meet with after the event.
Leave your weapons at home. Yes, we know it's a free country, but do it anyway. If that's an issue to you, don't join the group.
If you are interested in joining our fun group, you'll need to read and agree to our group's guidelines -- which we call "Our Party Platform." You can only access these guidelines from the desktop site of our group on Meetup, and not from the mobile site. Apps like "Meetup" and "Socializer" don't provide access to these files.
Item last! During a member's first 30 days, they may join us for an event, and after 30 days, in order to RSVP to our events, dues must be paid for the RSVP button to function. If no Meetup is available or all events are full, an exemption will be granted until the next available Meetup. NOTE: this applies to our our "secret" Facebook presence as well. Dues paid directly by check or cash ARE NOT subject to WE PAY's $1.03 fee they take out of the $7.00. In other words, please make arrangements to pay the dues directly if you can!
