What resolutions would you like to see the NCDP approve this year?
March 6, 2012 is the day for Democrats to meet and organize their local precincts. As you may know, the resolution process begins at the precinct level. Some ways do exist for getting resolutions to the floor of the state convention without beginning at a precinct meeting, but the proper way is to start a resolution at the precinct level, move through the county and district conventions and then to the state convention.
So, whether or not you attend your precinct meeting, what resolution(s) would you like to see the NCDP concern itself with this year?
For me, I would like to see a strong resolution highlighting the need for electoral reform to include limiting campaign contributions, slamming Citizens United and seeking limits on the length of the electoral season. IMO many of the ills of our nation stem from the fact that money rules elections to the exclusion of the idea based debate that should be the featured aspect of our democracy.
I would like to see a resolution supporting education in general and teachers in particular. (hopefully obvious)
I would like to see a resolution opposing Amendment 1. (hopefully obvious)
I would like to see a resolution supporting our environment, opposing fracking and offshore drilling and promoting green tech and green jobs.
Ok, I'll shut up and let you folks chime in.
