Joshua Chamberlain and his troops turned the tide at Gettysburg when they executed a bold and courageous maneuver. Running out of ammunition they attacked, and with that move held the high ground at Little Round Top while the rest of the Union army got their sh*t together and ultimately put an end to the evils of secession and slavery.
Today we have an analogous situation when it comes to the battle for control of the US Senate. While the Koch traitors have armed their minions and are massing for a frontal assault, the Democrats are still fumbling around trying to get their forces in order.
There is a great slate of Progressives running for Congress this cycle and the PCCC and Elizabeth Warren are helping to give them the ammunition they need.
Great candidates like Sen. Brian Schatz (D-HI), who is in a tough primary with Colleen Hanabusa (D-Monsanto).
And Rick Weiland (SD-Sen), a populist supporter of single payer healthcare who can help HOLD Sen. Tim Johnson's South Dakota Senate seat for Democrats.
And of course, my own favorite- Shenna Bellows (ME-Sen), a proven champion of civil liberties who is mounting a terrific challenge to replace a Republican CIA apologist.
These candidates have put themselves forward for the good of the nation. We need to have their backs. I am donating to each of these campaigns, because with the balance of the Senate at stake, EVERY seat is important.
