It's That Time Again
I used to post a lot on politics. Back during the last presidential cycle. Then Bush won. I went on to other things and other than the occasional outburst, I've kept politics back burnered for the most part.
But we've got midterm elections coming up in a month and it's crunch time. The Democrats have a good chance at taking control of the House and Senate for the first time since they lost it in the midterm elections during Clinton's first term.
This is an important moment. Regardless of where you sit in the politcal spectrum, we can all see what a one party system has done for this country. We need some balance.
The Gotham Gal and I have been doing our part for the past couple years and have focused our time, energy, and money on the DSCC and several important Senate races.
Now it's time to do more. We are going to do whatever we can to get out the word. Everyone needs to vote this year. Get people energized. If you don't have an important race in your state, go somewhere that there is one. Get involved. Make a difference.
One way to make a difference is by running some of these badges that I've featured in this blog post. You can get the badges at Word of Blog.
UPDATE: Thomas Friedman in today's NY Times:
The Republicans must lose, or our democracy will.
