Imagine what we can still achieve. We have had over 430,000 visits to this weblog, currently averaging 15,000 visitors a week. Imagine if everyone reading this post chipped in with only $10, right this instant. Imagine if everyone reading this post decided to send in just $20 a month, every month until November 2004.
We at Dean Nation could collectively raise $3.9 million dollars for Dean alone.
The campaign is seeking to raise $5 million in the next 10 days - and I know that we at Dean Nation can do our part as we have done. This isn't a luxury donation, it's an investment in our future, and the future of our children. It's our way to assert ourselves as We the People, who have been forgotten in the Corporatist takeover of both parties and the country as a whole.
It's our way to TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK. One dollar, one day, one week at a time.
Please join us! Contribute via Dean Nation and lend your voice to our chorus. Make a commitment and stand with us as we roar with a voice so great, that Bush trembles beneath its fury, and resolve.
FEED THE BAT! For it is our turn at the plate...

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.
