I invite you to take a look at the groups I've created, (some now owned by others) and send a request to join any, or all, if you're interested. These groups are primarily for progressives, however a few are for people of any political persuasion.

The links to the groups are:
This group is for politics in America (USA). All political parties welcome. Left, Right, Center, Up, Down, whatever. It's all good.
America's CHILDREN (daMamma)
The importance of our children is too often ignored. We let children in our country go hungry, lack proper education, we don't place enough emphasis on keeping our children healthy, and we ignore many things happening to our children in our society in general. This group is for people who realize that children are our future, and that we need to raise awareness about everything that affects the well being of our children, their lives, and their futures.
This group is for those who believe people should not be discriminated against because of Age, Ancestry, Creed, Disability, Genetic Testing, Marital Status, National Origin, Race, Religion, Sex, Sexual Orientation, etc.
Climate Change - Human Caused
This group is for people who know global climate change is human caused, and wish to share seeds and article on the topic. Deniers will not be accepted into the group.
Computers & Internet (mstanley2265)
I have started this group is for sharing personal computer and Internet stories. It is also for helping one another, when possible, with computer and Internet questions.
This group is for sharing stories about the right wing (Republicans, Teapublicans, Tea Party) taking a dump on America.
FIRED UP DEMOCRATS!
This group is for Democrats who are fired up and want others in our Party to be fired up too. It is our responsibility to keep the Democratic interest strong, and the Democratic voter turnout high, or risk losing control of our government to right-wing extremists.
Government & Industry (bore-head007)
This group is to discuss relationships between the government and industry. Sometimes the government and industry work hand in hand. Sometimes the government and industry are going head to head.
Hunger in America (Arkansas Gloria)
With the United States being second only to the European Union in exporting food, there should be no reason for Americans to go hungry. Nonetheless, 49 million Americans suffer from food insecurity, of which 17 million are children. This group is to discuss the problem of hunger in America, and what can be done about it.
This group is for sharing information about the Koch brothers, Charles and David, as well as Koch Industries, and anything else having to do with the Koch brothers attempted takeover of American politics.
Long Term Unemployed (The Desert Rattler)
This group is for information about, and information for, the long term unemployed. We believe the vast majority of long term unemployed are NOT unemployed by choice.

U.S. Immigration Reform

We believe that undocumented workers already in the United States should be made legal citizens, and the southern border made more secure.
