Remain focused on idependence

Please be sure to remain focused on one issue, and only one - independence for Cascadia. Ideological purity tests - "if you support us, you must also believe X" - are the places social movements go to die. The site so far is very good about this, so this more a compliment than a real suggestion.

    Yes! If Cascadia goes the route of Occupy (becoming so inclusive that their message lost meaning to all but the most zealous. Stay focused or join a LARP group (or do both… if that’s your thing). That being said, it may be worth looking just much common ground we have. If we can escape the gravity of polarized thinking that plagues the rest of the country, we may be surprised how high we can go!

    TAKEWAY: Agree to focus on independence for Cascadia, then look for places where we share common beliefs to build coalitions.

    Agreed. None of us are going to agree on a detailed political agenda. We need to focus on independence, and that alone. We don’t even need to decide the details later – we already know this region is liberal, we will decide as voters and representatives after secession.
