My take on Presidential Politics

I tend to agree with my sister WILPFers that far too much energy is sucked away by presidential elections. Core issues of peace and justice are never tackled, and none of the candidates every completely represent my views on war, peace, and the way towards democracy. Heck, the whole way we elect presidents is undemocratic.

Nevertheless, I'm still interested in engaging people in the political process. And I think elections are a unique way to preach beyond the choir. That's part of the reason I'm involved with the Courage Campaign, a California progressive organization that is pushing to make CA more than just an ATM on the road to the White House via our ATM Watch.

Some people are skeptical, and I responded to one such critic on the Courage Campaign blog. Feel free to read why I think its important for presidential candidates to address California issues in "ATM Watch in the News: Are Californians Californian?"
