If you donate $100 this year to Dean's campaign, that's only a single quarter a day. If every single person reading this blog today committed to a quarter a day, that would be $300,000 dollars (with federal matching funds). We could make that difference today, by just clicking this link. right now. And making history.
A hundred bucks sounds like a lot. But it's an investment in democracy. And unlike with the GOP, it's an investment that ordinary citizens can afford.
UPDATE: I'm moving this post to today for higher visibility. In light of the DLC attack on Dean, donations are going to be even more critical in helping the campaign stay on message, respond quickly, and get organized with the media to get Dean's message out and fight the conventional wisdom. Please donate whatever you can - and do it today.

Obama 2008 - I want my country back
Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
