As Bill Nye taught us: Local, local, local.
Have a BBQ.
Go to a BBQ.
Meet your ideological kin.
Forget about 100% alignment.
Look for things in common.
It’s not all about you – so drop the anatomy-swinging and look for ways to help in your AO – even a little bit.
Don’t be paralyzed into inaction and uselessness by the reality of .gov infiltrators.
Sort the talkers from the doers.
Start building trust – if only just a little bit at first.
