"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

Free Speech Zones

posted by Brian Ulrich at Tuesday, July 27, 2004 permalink View blog reactions
President Bush has often been criticized for his administration's "Free Speech Zones" by which dissent is kept off camera and away from the President in his public appearances. I haven't followed this issue, but Bill at Hawken Blog has a collection of links to support charges that the Democrats are now doing the same thing. Can protests get out of hand? Yes, and certainly security has to be maintained, but this is one of those cases where we need to remain vigilant at all times in defense of our right to peacefully assemble.


What a wonderful invention it is, this thing we call the Internet!


It pretty much covers FREE Marketing related stuff.

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.
