We are The Federation.
We exist as a federation of individual kossacks, different in our lives, our persons, our dreams, our worries...but we have come together for a common purpose: strength through unity.
Federation members disagree with each other, but do not attack.
Federation members are wrong at times, but are handled with care and patience.
Federation members don't think President Obama is perfect, but support him.
Federation members support Democrats in the face of Republican, Libertarian, and general hyperbolic trollery.
Federation members are passionate, but are not radical for the sake of it.
Though we have leadership, each member of the Federation is held in the highest regard, respect, and value. We appreciate you for who you are and what you can contribute to the Federation and to Daily Kos.
When/if badges are allowed for group membership, Adm GGGE will actually pay a professional designer to come up with one that is cool as shit.
We hold the above values and principles in high regard while interacting with each other and with non-federated Kossacks...but we will staunchly defend fellow members and our grand Daily Kos.
We exist to raise the bar of civility, reason, and unity at Daily Kos.
You may have seen republish notes to our group...we encourage you to follow the link and read the diaries, learning more about what we hold valuable and who are members are. The diversity and leadership is already amazing and I'm truly proud to be apart of it, and if you hold the same values, encourage you to request membership.
Strength through Unity and Service,
"The Admiralty" and fellow members of The Federation.
