The only fundamental estoppel to this, is community support.
If you are able to couch your position in a way which shall appeal to
the mums and dads - the middle class (those who might actually be able
to afford and RPG, and who might be interested in a system that benefits
them more than the 0.001%, -and- you go the distance in careful,
conscientious and strategic recruitment,
then and only then might you seriously change the political landscape.
Perhaps consider not bashing the bible bashers, not emotionally berating
the emotionally beratable, and holding to some foundations which are
agreeable to the majority.
If you don't have majority agreement, at least after an hour or six of
discussion, then your platform will not be supported by the middle class
and the middle class will gladly support their sons and daughters in
handling you at the expense of their tax paid dollars and the govt.

Gandhi walked a thousand miles on foot and talked with thousands of

May be so. But we ought focus on possible pathways to end goals.
I assume an end goal being intended when words of possibility are
Which also makes it not so difficult to identify those who are
defensively attached to the system as it is today, of course.

Generally, I'd also say this is true.
