I was planning a long post on the need to keep the Obama electoral organization in being to pressure Congress, continue voter registration, try to make the 2014 electorate look like 2012 rather than 2010, and punish the lawmakers and officials (e.g., the Ohio Secretary of State) who engaged in vote suppression this year.
Apparently it’s going to happen. In the wrap-up mass conference call with Obama volunteers, the campaign urged them to sign up at TheAction.org. Not sure how much of the above agenda it’s going to pursue, but the first focus will be the fiscal-cliff negotiations. I urge you to give of your time and your money to help make this happen. The capacity to mobilize masses of voters outside the election cycle would mark an epoch in American history, and might help repair the damage done by the growing power of dark money.
