How do I start

  1. Feb 2, 2008 #1
    I wanna 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 pplz 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, im a sophomore in college.

    The college I go to has no groups or anything for Green party pplz, 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.

    Have you found out yet about Citizens for Progressive Transit?

    No, but that seems like a great place to start. Thx.
