That's what we have in the Strafford County Democratic Committee in New Hampshire. That's what accounts for the county being a bastion of democrats in a sea of pink (New Hampshire Republicans are wishy-washy when they are not plain crazy).

The Strafford County Democrats are better than little league baseball, which can only be played in the middle of the year, because, like the Energizer bunny, they never let up. They've made political engagement a year-round avocation that doesn't stint on spaghetti suppers and mini-banquets and pot-luck picnics and the convenient yard sale to get rid of unwanted stuff.

How does this happen? Well, mostly it's the result of a handful of individuals who just never flag. Some are young and some are old, but what they have in common, I guess, is that they like people. Not all Democrats do, you know. That's why some have been sending out those doom and gloom missives about Kochs trying to cook and eat us, figuratively of course.

See how it's done below the curlicue.

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.

    They appear to need all the good advice they can get (although I don't know why). Tough cat herding, still, after a half-century? Dang.

      into believing that, if they were just patient, all the rights promised in the Constitution would be delivered. Everything in good time!

      That crime fighters are supposed to respond only to complaints and service providers are supposed to respond to demands is not consistent with bureaucratic autonomy. So, if the traditional powers that be were to persist in their positions of authority after the advent of universal suffrage and free access to public information, both complaints and demands had to be deterred. So, they invented the "pro-active" fiction, which then devolved into "protection" for vulnerable people, the environment and, finally, the nation. Protecting the nation is such a lovely notion -- all inclusive and doing nothing.
      An umbrella provides more protection, rain or shine, than the NSA. National Security Agency! Talk about an agenda designed to fail.
