    •  just don't see it yet ... (1+ / 0-)

      i know how hopeful you remain about the ideals Obama promoted and I'm totally in ... but frankly I just haven't seen an occasion where the grassroots have had an impact on policy in I don't know how long.... Yeah, I know he reads his ten letters, and I know what he told us throughout the campaign ... but somehow I feel like we just lost him the minute he won. THE BIG GUYS entered the scene ... his hands are tied. We have the tools, lets use them, it is all we have, afterall....

      They tortured people to get false confessions to fraudulently justify our invading Iraq.

        exercise concerted organized action to have an effect on policy?  we can't have impact without getting organized and taking action.

        •  hey, i wanted those Obama phone lists 2 days (0+ / 0-)

          after the election. Now that was the time to start! everyone was just itching to keep moving on, some people who had joined late were just getting revved up... how to ignite that degree of passion, hope and movement again ..... ????? I'm in, I'm definitely in, most everyone here at Kos is in I'm sure .... but what oh what we could have accomplished when everyone was still on fire....
