We came together as a coalition.
Past differences? Didn't matter.
Disagreement on other policies? Didn't matter.
Who you backed in the primaries? Who effing cares?
What we're working on right now is too important for that.
We are a coalition on an issue so important that past differences mean nothing, other policy differences mean nothing, and we move on together for a cause. As the group marches down the street toward city hall, former allies who have had bitter battles just quietly nod to each other as another one steps off the curb and joins the march. And another. And another. Nothing need be said.

Thank you for reading the Pushing Back at the Grand Bargain blogathon by Roger Fox
Hell No! We are not finished. by joanneleon
We have a line in the sand
We take care of one another. We don't throw our brothers and sisters to the wolves. We don't trash our planet for profit and certain ruin.
So to all who contributed, to all who supported, to all who commented, to all who organized and advised (thanks Lady Libertine and Roger Fox), to all those who hosted us, we offer you our heartfelt thanks and respect.
And we are not finished. When elected representatives choose to play on the third rail, we're going to zap them. And we're certainly not going to hold their hands when they reach out to touch that third rail either!
