Do you feel alone? Are you ready to give up on politics? We’re not.
After the last 6 years, we have seen lot of changes in government. Some of you have just reached your limit, some have been fed up for awhile, a few of you noticed something very wrong right away in 2008, and still others saw the problems even before that. No matter when you noticed, you are not alone.
Our mission is to educate all voters about candidates and issues in the elections in which we responsibly vote. It is our civic duty to be informed.
We have been meeting openly and regularly since March 2010. We welcome members who are Democrat, Republican, Independent, and Libertarian. If you have never voted and want to learn more about elections, political parties, and important issues – COME SEE US!
