Open Thread-011405: Populist Progressive Principles

We at P! have begun to define our Vision Statement. As part of that process, we want to identify essential key principles for a movement based in populist, progressive principles.

You, our readers, are encouraged to be a vital part of this effort. We want you to take ownership, because P! is ultimately yours. We DO have the power. Now, how do we use it? What do we want to build? If we believe that the governmental and political system is failing us, we can build one that works.

Use the comments section of this post freely. There will be a link to this post on the sidebar to make it easy to find as we move along.

Thanks - have at it!
