    Good points. Yes, we can't just kneejerk into elections every two years. We need, as the conservatives figured out, a continuing voice that builds an alternative story people can choose to adopt.

      just banging my head against the wall in this area.  I appreciate everything everyone does when elections roll around, especially after walker "dropped the bomb."

      But I hope someday we will realize that they can outspend us and if we are going to have to out-organize them like so many proclaim, we cannot wait until the election rolls around.

      It will have to be 24/7/365.

      During last Tuesday's election, we should have learned that WE CAN DO THIS!

      But there is more work to be done.  IMHO, more work than can possibly be done during the election cycle.

      And thanks for pointing out - that is what the other side has been doing for years.

        all in all it doesn't matter what Bauer or anyone else says, it matters what we do.

          I did not mean to question we did a lot.  I don't speak for riegro, but I didn't take that post to mean that commenter did either.

          Speaking only for myself, we saw that we can make a difference.  We saw more clearly what we will be up against in 2012.

          I am sure both of us want to see change and we are just trying to participate in a dialog of how we can go forward.
