Need A Movement To Make Them Do It

-- by Dave Johnson

Everyone go read Harold Meyerson - Without a movement, progressives can't aid Obama's agenda.

It isn't the job of a political party to create change, it is the job of a movement.

Campaign ads just literally go up in the air at the last minute and are very expensive. But donating to progressive organizations creates lasting demand for progressive change. If you give $1000 to a progressive organization that reaches the public and explains why progressive policies are better for them, then those people will vote for EVERY progressive candidate and support EVERY progressive initiative. That way your $1000 goes much, much further and you don't have to give $1000 to each candidate...
