Nation-Building >> Michigan for Dean: a call to action! | 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

Michigan for Dean: a call to action!

posted by annatopia at Friday, August 15, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
You folks are lucky; I read Free Republic so you don't have to. Michigan for Dean, beware. The Freepers are coming after our candidate:
Michigan Rally Targets Howard Dean This Saturday! Democrat presidential hopeful Howard Dean will appear at a fundraiser in Ypsilanti this Saturday, August 16, from 11:30-12 noon. Unfortunately, Mr. Dean wants to raise taxes by repealing President Bush's tax cut. Michigan Citizens for a Sound Economy is organizing a protest to "welcome" Mr. Dean, who is a leading candidate for the Democrat Presidential nomination. Our Michigan team is going to show up shortly after 11:00 AM, as we want to be in place by 11:15. Location: 1305 Grant, Ypsilanti, (a few doors down from West Middle School.) CSE will provide t-shirts and posters with slogans demanding that Dean cut taxes, not increase them. Please visit for some additional background material.

This is also being sponsored by CSE, an organisation run by yet another Texas-based nutbag, Dick Armey. Michigan for Dean, are you reading?

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.
