"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

Dean Nation Rally update

posted by Aziz P. at Sunday, July 06, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
In two days, we've inched forward to 35% of our goal of $10,000 for Dean! Not bad, but we have a long way to go! Remember, our goal is to have $10,000 by the end of Tuesday - and we know the campaign is watching and deeply appreciative of all we have done so far!

There are over 2000 of us visiting this blog daily. If we all just kicked in $5 each, we'd blow right through our goal in one day! I know we have all given as much as we could to help Dean make history on the Q2 deadline - after all, it was $7 Million Monday - but there's surely got to be some spare change lying around that we can use, to raise our collective voices as Dean Nation, that we are Dean's and Dean is ours!

We are Dean Nation - and we are as much part of the fabric of the Dean Phenomenon as the candidate himself! It's our country and we aren't going to take it anymore - we want our country back, and we want to show the GOP-minion lobbyists on K-street just who the Declaration of Independence was for!

We are Dean Nation, and we can raise $10,000 for Dean. And we will!

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.
