Just one link today: ACT (Americans Coming Together)
. (Thanks to siderea
for the link.) This is a political project with a rather good attitude: instead of being focused on buying airtime, they're trying to get people on the ground knocking on doors in the battleground states, and actually promoting person-to-person communication. It's much closer, IMO, to the way American politics is supposed to work, than the TV-blitz approach so favored today.
Note that it's unabashedly "progressive", for which one must presumably read Democratic. But their principal focus for now seems to be getting Bush out of office, which I regard as a positive good from any angle. (The Republican in me wants him out in hopes that that party might start moving towards sanity again, so I have some political options.)
Worthwhile idea. I've tossed them some money, and need to think about finding some time to wander north to one of the relevant states to help out...
