I have been trying for a while with no success to get involved with Californians interested in starting a new secular political party. My concept of politics is to use cold, hard reason and common sense in lieu of political and religious ideology to the extent that is reasonably possible. I figure that since more people register as independents than either Democrats or Republicans, there must be at least some discontent out there. If California's (and America's) awful state of affairs is any indication, it looks like the current two-party system has failed us. No wonder there is more than a bit of sourness about politics these days. If there is any interest here, my version of politics is explained at California Moderates (contact info is there too).
