"America has two great dominant strands of political thought - conservatism, which, at its very best, draws lines that should not be crossed; and progressivism, which, at its very best, breaks down barriers that should never have been erected." -- Bill Clinton, Dedication of the Clinton Presidential Library, November 2004

It's $7 Million Monday!

posted by Aziz P. at Monday, June 30, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
Kos of The Daily Kos succinctly summarizes the New Reality:

Ooh. It's time for all the anti-Deanies to rise up in anger. Really, you guys should be angry at your chosen candidates for running thus-far inept campaigns, poking fun at Dean for "wasting his time" talking to "obscure bloggers" and dismissing meetups as something out of the Star Wars cantina. Oops, turns out that all those things were important after all.

Who would've thunk it?

It's a new world, and Dean was the only one to catch on.

(and Mighty Joe, too, of course). TODAY is $7 Million Monday. Let's get that bat to pop its cork and break 7 Million Dollars by midnight tonight.

We are the netroots. We are not "obscure bloggers" and our Meetups are not the pretensions of an elite caste. We are the American People. And we want our country back. We want it back TODAY - on $7 Million Monday.

Join us and show the world that it's the power of the common man that makes America an inspiration to the rest of the world. Join us TODAY and make a statement that political power resides with We the People, not K-Street.

This is the campaign to Take Back America - TODAY.

About Nation-Building

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.
