Nation-Building >> We Must Show Our Force: Sign up NOW for June 23rd | return to front page

"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

We Must Show Our Force: Sign up NOW for June 23rd

posted by Zephyr Teachout at Thursday, June 19, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
It is critical that you sign up NOW if you plan to celebrate Dean's declaration on June 23rd. Show our strength—through our numbers. If you cannot make an event, and are going to participate in the Declaration Celebration by watching Governor Dean’s speech at home, sign up here:

June 23rd Virtual Declaration Celebration

We know this movement to Take Back America is hundreds of thousands strong—but the country WILL NOT KNOW IT unless we stand up with Dean together.

This is our moment. Every person makes a difference. If over 20,000 people sign up for events nationwide, we will literally blow the country away.

Stand up and be counted. So far over 8,000 people are signed up--if each person who reads this emails ten of your friends to join you (you can cut and paste this post), we may be able to reach 20,000 by Sunday.

Every person you talk to about this, also ask to sign up for the MoveOn primary. If we can show the country tens of thousands of grassroots and netroots supporters standing up with Dean on June 23rd and THEN win the endorsement of 1.4 million activists on June 24th--we will become completely unstoppable.

Come July, we can all rest--but this is our moment, and we need all the help we can get to bring this extraordinary movement to the next level. Thank you so much.

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.
