DO NOT believe that the battle has been won.
DO get out and fight as hard as you can, because if this thing passes, there is no going back and America will never be the same.
The Democrats and their allies are starting a major push tomorrow, Wednesday, by planning hundreds of events across the country. From giant rallies to a bus going around the nation to phone banking and doorbelling.
Reform supporters are planning to hold more than 500 events between Wednesday and when lawmakers return to Washington Sept. 8, ranging from neighborhood organized phone banks to professionally staffed rallies with hundreds of people.
The Democratic National Committee and its grassroots arm, Organizing for America, are helping to organize the effort along with the Health Care for America Now, a group pushing to create government-run insurance plan.
Their bus will stop in Phoenix, Albuquerque, Denver, Des Moines, Pittsburgh, Raleigh, Charlotte, Milwaukee, St. Louis, Indianapolis, and Columbus, Ohio. If you live in one of these cities, start planning now to counter them. Go to the Organizing for America website to find out what kinds of events are happening in your area, and COUNTER THEM!!! You cannot wait for someone else to organize a counter event for you - everyone must take the reins and FIGHT!
For instance, they are hosting "phone banking from your own home" events. We should sign up and get the phones lists ourselves and either call them with a more, ahem, balanced point of view, or just not use the numbers at all. Sign up for a few shifts! DO IT!
