In summary, the conversation revolves around the individual's desire to contribute to the community, particularly in terms of promoting liberal ideas and improving public transportation in Georgia. However, they feel isolated and have few connections in these areas. The suggestion is made to reach out to like-minded people through groups or advertisements. A specific group, Citizens for Progressive Transit, is also mentioned as a potential starting point.

I want to start contributing to the community, butt I have very few friends and my relatives are completely isolated from this community. The few friends that I have are all into video games and not at all into anything resembling politics and/ or community service.

So how do I start from scratch and make a network of pplease to get the liberals around Atlanta organized or help do that, to get a decent railway/subway system for Georgia? There is a skeleton system of railtracks all over Georgia which would be very easy to turn into a modern and efficient public transport system. But no one has done anything about it since 1980 and many believe that the representatives here take too much lobbying money from car companies to actually do it.

The closest thing to a hope i have, is that one of my close friends has a liberal roomate with a few liberal friends. But other than that I feel like a man on an island in this bastion of Red States, Georgia. And btw, I am a sophomore in college.

The college I go to has no groups or anything for Green party pplease, socialists, or anything that interests me. So, I have no life, almost no friends, and very retarded social skills and I want to do something other than stare at a computer or t.v screen.Any ideas on how to do this?

If this is in the wrong section, feel free to move it, if this is way off topic to even be on this board feel free to delete it.

The problem is the counties in Georgia will not cooperate, that is why even much needed roads crossing county lines can't happen. It is totally ridiculous and something that has been addressed for ages.

I don't see how that would affect your social life, however.

Put out an ad in the newspaper looking to start a group of like-minded people. Get out and interact.
