There is much talk about new communities, here are my two cents. [Nov. 5th, 2008|05:36 pm]

There is much debate about what will happen now to these communities. Communities are like coalitions, they are sometimes temporary and fragile things. There has been a lot built up here, and these will all continue to evolve. Here are some other communities you may wish to also join.

I know it is way too soon, but I created this community before the election because I had hope.
2012obama

I co-moderate this long lasting but smaller Obama community. Generally anything Obama related is accepted and debate can often flow between very different perspectives.

This is another community I co-moderate and it's focus will no doubt be on new Obama and other possible policies that would largely be considered progressive. It might be more policy specific than some of you wish, but the more the better!
progressivism

Here is yet another community I co-maintain that has an even more explicit focus on economic policy and what we can do to get out of our current economic situation.

Also of similar interest:
the_recession

Here is a hip new community that is already rapidly growing that I will contribute to, but do not moderate or maintain.

If you want to perhaps bash the right, this may be of interest.

And here is the last Obama related community I know that is lots of fun.

I highly suggest viewing these great photos of President Obama.

This is how I feel today, well I know it's the crazy Ewok song but the words are still a celebration.

Edwards thoughts? [Aug. 25th, 2008|05:15 pm]
John Edwards for President

I ran across the below article and realized that nobody really seemed to talk about this. This is your chance to vent or just give you two cents. God, I liked his stances on so many things, but this was just plain old stupid. I usually like to think that someones private life is their own business, but now I realize that many of the important things he spoke about, the two Americans the most important, will now get even less attention because it is connected with him. What are your thoughts? Is there anybody still in this community?

John Edwards calling former staffers asking for forgiveness

John Edwards

DENVER - John Edwards is burning up the phone lines, begging former aides and backers to forgive him for lying about his affair - but hearing their rage instead.

As Democrats kick off their convention Monday, the onetime presidential contender is a man without a party - or a political future - trying to rebuild bridges through dozens of remorseful phone calls.

It's proving a hard sell with onetime true believers.

Lobby Legislation [Aug. 7th, 2007|09:30 pm]
John Edwards for President

So, I don't know how many of you get Edward's campaign newsletter, but yesterday Trippli sent out an email encouraging other members of the DNC to stop accepting money from Lobby Groups.

There's already legislation going through now on a similar note, but Edwards is saying, "We don't have to wait for a new law - the Democratic Party can end the game today - and from this day forward say to Washington lobbyists - your money is no good here anymore."

Am I the only one who thinks this is a TERRIBLE idea. Especially considering Sen. Obama is raking in the money hand over fist these days?

What do you guys think?

Welcome welcome [Oct. 15th, 2006|11:18 pm]

I started this community because i really believe that John Edwards is the real deal. I think that we need a real breath of fresh air in this country and in Washington, and I think Edwards is the man to do it.

Mostly, I just want to show my support, but I also plan on conversing about his blogs over at the One America Committee website. By the way, that's a great site...

Any thoughts are welcome as long as you're civil!
