Taking Over the Democratic Party from Within

i believe the best path to give voice and choice to the people is to form a web based coalitiion (eparty.org) similar to moveon.org that is focused on selecting and electing officials who are committed to representing the people. in order to gain eparty nomination status and full support these candidates will agree to eparty tenets.

eparty tenets should include:

* responding by email and community bbs to all constituents within seven days.
* complete disclosure/transparency on all fundraising activities, especially those involving lobbyists and large donors.
* adherence to an overall issue platform as voted on by the eparty membership
* participation in a quarterly online and offline discussion about specific upcoming legislation and issues.
* [do you have any more ideas? post them to http://eparty.tribe.net]
