2004 will go down as the biggest election in decades. The excitement and passion will be palpable. With that in mind, as Lisa English suggests, go big. Address all the little cuts of corruption that damage and divide us, and weave them into a vision of reform and change that will make peoples' hearts drop.
"I can't believe it's actually happening..." will be the initial reaction of most, and then once that love and hope builds, and hatred and fear diminish, it will be unstoppable. Hearts and minds will race to the glorious finish.
It's time to take back our country, and our power. Change is in the air, the real kind, and not the empty kind of election promises. By building a true American coalition and championing freedom, democracy and American ideals, our momentum will build, and almost any suggestion become possible if it synchronizes with the theme of taking back democracy and integrity and slaying corruption, secrecy and deceit.
I'll be there the whole time to help rile things up. I hope all of you will be too.
From Lisa English:
Change happens when we're not so petrified of losing, that we actually get into the ring and beat the crap out of the opponent. Let me tell you something: you be loud and brash and Right On, and EVEN the corporate media will cover your ass. You be milquetoast and centrist and a facsimile of the Right, and you'll be ignored.
Let's be Rocky Balboa and take the fight to Republiclubber Lang!
Also, Cowboy Kahlil has some excellent analysis and impressive graphics on the geographic battle for 2004.
