We are a Nation of more than one Party, that by definition should mean discourse and fighting and major disagreements. That is democracy, by finding our differences, out of discussion comes agreement on middle ground. I am disgusted by how misleading and even infantilizing the old political spectrum has become.

Believe it or not, our values are at some deep level fundamentally the same -- governance and law, learning and education, health care and enviroment, all are a concern of each and everyone of us on some level.

WeDemocrats respect our differences and recognize America needs every one of our viewpoints, ideas, and passions -- even those we don't agree with -- to keep our democracy vital and alive. WeDemocrats recognize that meetings across our land for dialogues across differences builds trust, understanding, respect, and empowerment -- the conditions necessary for freedom and democracy to live in and around us.

The purpose of WeDemocrats is to initiate a new kind of public conversation that moves us beyond polarization so we can effectively address the issues we care most about. We believe all concerned Americans have a piece of the answer, and that listening to and learning from each other -- even if difficult -- will make our country stronger and wiser.

WeDemocrats, commit ourselves and our communities of interest to foster dialogue across the many divides in America, in large and small groups, to build trust, insight, and action toward the more perfect union we all desire.

In a couple days the worker bees, the people that did the grunt work, the voters will be forgotten by both parties. We will be told to take a vacation, to relax we did a great job. At least till they need us again.  We must not let that happen in this organization, we must continue to work towards our goals, building the foundation and plans for a major victory in 2008. The only way we win is to work harder, be tougher, and reach more voters than the Republicans. We can win. And your contribution can be the difference.

We need to rent offices, install phones, website hosting, purchase printing and materials, dozens of expenses, find legal and accounting services, train precinct organizers, county coordinators, and state coordinators, that till now has been funded by my wife and I out of our Social Security checks, but its gotten too big and we can't afford it any longer, we need your help.

Support our member-driven organization: is entirely funded by our members. We have no corporate contributors, no foundation grants, no money from unions. Our small staff ensures that even smallest contributions go a long way. If you'd like to support our work, you can give now at:

I want to express my deepest appreciation for all you members have done, as I write this it looks as if we have a few disappointments and a lot of victories. This in no way means that in those areas we lost, that our members let us down, on the contrary we saw some tremendous gains in Dem vote percentages in those areas over 2004 election. The nature of volunteerism is doing something without being rewarded. And we have 1,079 volunteer members as I write this.

Gov. Dean and his 50-state strategy worked to perfection, but we must not set back on our laurels, we must continue building on that foundation. The 2008 election is in 24 months -- will you make a donation now to fund WeDemocrats and our continuing efforts?

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead

You did it, not for us or for anyone in particular, but because our country's in trouble, and we've gotta turn it around. You helped do that during this election and you helped make history tonight.

We couldn't have done this without you, so thanks!

The future of our party -- and our country -- depends on what we do in these coming months and years.
Thank you,
Ron McBride

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.
