Most of us here don't need to be convinced to get active. We're already angry, organized, and out there helping in the elections. But we need more people fighting on our side if we're going to win. And not the people that the DLC panders to- the so called moderates. We need people who share our values. We have to reinvigorate people who've been turned off from politics with all the recent Republican corruption and scandal, but who are angry enough to fight for the good guys if we can convince them.

Do More Than Vote (DMTV) tries to turn Democratic voters into Democratic activists, so we can beat the right. And now, thanks to Hammering the Issues (HTI), we have a video that we hope can recruit new voters, and in turn, new activists. DMTV is not recreating the wheel; we simply direct interested volunteers to other organizations with great volunteer opportunties. The guys at HTI spent the last several month on an RV road trip through competitive districts, filming grassroots campaigners, spicing up the footage with shots of James Adomian (the Bush impersonator of YouTube fame who nailed the State of the Union address earlier this year) and making a fun and informative video.

Not only does it let you explain to your friends or your mother what you're up to- it shows why the midterm elections are important, how we can win, what we need to do, and the power of the netroots. Try it and see what you think. It's called "The Greatest Trick Ever!" Politics with a spoon full of humor.

Then, please help us spread the word by passing it on to friends, family, colleagues, and neighbors, so we can get more activists working on our side.
Democrats can win, but only if we Do More Than Vote!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
