I started it to try and find another way into discussion about "both sides" being the same. It's a complex subject needing innovative thinking in order to get beyond the unscalable wall that such an on/off viewpoint places on how to get any change done.

You mentioned coalitions and that got my attention. What sort of coalitions are you active in? What do they do and how do they make change? Are the people who participate Dems, Reeps, or other political animals?

You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.
