Went to a Cascadia Now! meeting tonight. It's less about secession than it is about building parallel alternatives to systems that have become too large, inefficient, and dangerous. A lot of good ideas in the room, I only hope there's time for them to come to fruition.

We talked about branding and that got me thinking it might be a good idea to borrow a play from the other side. Somehow the right got a lock on mom and apple pie when it's the lefties who adhere more closely to the Constitutional values that make America America.

It really shouldn't be a question of left/right, but those are the terms of the present argument, with the alt-right clearly on the side of shredding the document that defines us as a nation, so I wanted to reappropriate all-American iconography as a reminder that true patriots fight for the Bill of Rights. What do you think?

[update: Forget left/right! Can't we find common ground in mutual defense of the Bill of Rights?]
