    STOP, DON’T DO IT!
    At this point, I think the best strategy is to keep any specific demands to a minimum (confined to discussion groups) with he first goal to create an overall mission statement. Demands like 1.5 trillion for a works program, while admirable is too specific leaving details of funding and implementation open for disagreement and confusion. Why 1.5 trillion? Why not 1.75 trillion or 2 trillion or 1.25 trillion or 3 trillion? Where’s the money come from, etc etc.
    The mission statement should include words like democracy, economic justice, and fairness, things everyone can agree on and from which will naturally flow goals and eventually processes, laws and programs, like a modern CCC corps being discussed.
