I want to start with two observations before making several other points. The first observation is that during the Civil War it was said that one of the differences between Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis was that Davis seemed determined to win arguments and debates even if he lost the war, while Lincoln was content to lose some debates but he was determined to win the war. Many progressives are like Jefferson Davis, content just to win public policy debates, but then lose the war and blame the troops who would not fight by voting for "their" public policy prescriptions. "We are right on the issues," we proclaim, but 100 million Americans did not vote for anyone, and they need us the most. So, too often, we have a credibility gap with our soldiers. Lincoln had a general named McClellan who trained troops well, but was reluctant to fight. Lincoln much preferred Grant and Sherman because they didn't just prepare to fight, they fought. Lincoln once said, "Grant has the bear by the hind leg, while Sherman takes off its hide." Orders to our troops from Grant and Sherman are different than orders from McClellan. I want to congratulate you. ACORN is more like Grant and Sherman than McClellan -- you fight.

To Whom It May Concern

I had the good fortune to work closely with David Swanson in his role with the Kucinich for President Campaign in 2003-2004. My role as Webmaster was closely dependent on his role as Press Secretary. I could always depend on the quality of David's output as I posted his writings to the kucinich.us web site and in mass email communications.
