    I can’t wait for this. I have been frustrated lately not knowing where is the best place my energies. I hate wasting time and energy. And I don’t want to be duped into supporting the wrong cause. I also don’t want group energy wasted by going into the stratosphere. Marches are important but, focused political action in Ralph Nader’s mind is where we make hay. So give me a task and point me in the right direction and you have yourself a pitbull on your team!
