Nation-Building >> FEED the BAT! | 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 have collectively raised $21,000 for Dean - but we have not yet met our September fund-raising goal of $25,000. Remember, the 3rd Quarter ends in 3 days and the campaign still has to raise $2.5 million to reach its goal. We must do our part!

Remember, by pooling our donations we at Dean Nation have taken the lead among all Dean Teams and spoken with one voice - and $21,000 - of our resolve to see Dean win the nomination and defeat Bush.

Doesn't the Plame affair make you angry? Bush 43's white house has broken a law signed by Bush 41 - deliberately blowing the cover of a CIA agent to fulfill a petty vendetta. They place their political gain and their school-yard bully ethics above the national interest, above the law, above morality and basic human decency.

And Howard Dean is the only one who can defeat them.

But we must help Dean raise dollars - and in so doing, again excercise our power as the grassroots, the voice of the People, who are the true engine driving Dean's campaign rather than the special interests.

Do what you can - join us and let's get Dean Nation to our goal of $25,000 - do it for Valerie Plame, do it for all the troops dying in Iraq, the National Guard reservists who have been forced into extended duty, the hundreds of thousands of new jobless every month. Do it for ourselves. This is our country and we have to take it back - and that means we have to FEED THE BAT!

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.
