Grassroots Resolutions for the Precinct Caucuses

[Front paged: NM. These resolutions can be presented at the upcoming presidential caucuses -- or adapted for your local legislative district or other community organizations.]

Hi everyone,

Judith has done a great job collecting proposed resolutions from the progressive grassroots for the precinct caucuses, and I have posted them on the PDCW.org website for your consideration.  To save time, I posted them all as PDF files, although the text of any of them is available if you want to make edits.

I also want to encourage you to visit a website that was mentioned on Air America Radio out of Colorado that gives us some really good platform planks to consider.

I will review these out and bring some or all to my precinct caucus.  

This year, resolutions will not be debated and voted on at the precinct level.  They are simply submitted along with all the other paperwork that is completed and handed in at the caucuses.  That simplifies the matter!

As I read the resolution "Resolution Concerning the Apportioning Super Delegates", I think its flat wrong.

It describes a scenario in which the superdelegates elect a candidate who got 80% of the caucus/primary vote, then calls that an usurption.

Someone needs to double-check my reading of that resolution... but I think it intended to describe a case where the superdelegates make a winner out of a candidate with only 20% support.

Is it beneficial to submit the same resolution at multiple caucuses? Suppose we have a resolution we want to submit (say, a resolution to require local content for media outlets). Is there any benefit if multiple people submit it at different caucuses? Or is one caucus enough?

Perhaps the more submissions, the more likely it'll get accepted. Does anyone know how it works?

is that, every time people in a precinct or an LD caucus talk about the resolution (and I realize that we aren't debating/voting on these on the precinct level), they are helping to advance the general state of public awareness/action.

I do agree with M3407 -- not every one of the hundreds of resolutions that are introduced is adopted.  Ones that come in from multiple caucuses are, I believe, likely to gain more attention and to receive more consideration for adoption.
