‘The liberal activists have dubbed this effort the Democracy Initiative’.
‘It was the kind of meeting that conspiratorial conservative bloggers dream about’.
‘A month after President Barack Obama won reelection, top brass from three dozen of the most powerful groups in liberal politics met at the headquarters of the National Education Association (NEA), a few blocks north of the White House’.
‘Brought together by the Sierra Club, Greenpeace, Communication Workers of America (CWA), and the NAACP, the meeting was invite-only and off-the-record’.
‘Despite all the Democratic wins in November, a sense of outrage filled the room as labor officials, environmentalists, civil rights activists, immigration reformers, and a panoply of other progressive leaders discussed the challenges facing the left and what to do to beat back the deep-pocketed conservative movement’.
‘At the end of the day, many of the attendees closed with a pledge of money and staff resources to build a national, coordinated campaign around three goals’:
‘Getting big money out of politics’.
‘Expanding the voting rolls while fighting voter ID laws’.
‘Rewriting Senate rules to curb the use of the filibuster to block legislation’.

That’s right (pun intended).
That is the massive conspiracy.
Get money out of politics.
Expand the voter rolls.
Write Senate rules to curb the filibuster of legislation.
