I have marched. I have protested. I even did a few interviews.
And what I have learned in that time is that none of that matters if you don't vote.
In the last few months I have been working full time. It leaves me very little energy to engage in the kind of activism and writing I enjoy participating in. Honestly, I have missed it a lot.
So when a friend got in touch with me about a project he was working on I jumped at the chance to get involved.
The premise is simple. We need to give Democratic voters a REASON to vote, something tangible to fight for, while at the same time drawing a line in the sand for Democratic candidates as a way for them to earn our support or be replaced by someone who will.
When last I wrote I mentioned this project, now that it has gotten off the ground a bit I'd like to share it with you all and get your take on it.
Here is the website we have put up, please give it a link and check it out . . .
I have signed this pledge and I strongly encourage you to do the same. I'm tired of getting emails that just ask for $3, I want to see a Democratic party that STANDS for something, and I hope this is where it starts . . .
slightly more below the fold. . . .
