DUers, stop being afraid!!!!!!
I see threads where everyone is afraid of this, afraid of that. Dean's gonna lose, Clark is a loose cannon.....

Fear is the reason we lost in 2002, fear of George Bush. Democrats were afraid to campaign against him. They supported a lot of what Bush wanted because of fear. They ended up having no coherent message to bring to the voters and got trounced.

Do not let fear of Bush lose 2004 for us. Support whatever candidate you'll think will make the best president. And then, when the best candidate is chosen, we must fight Bush behind that person without fear. Bush is a paper tiger, he is counting on our fear of him and his "popularity" for his victory. Let us deny him that.

I promised myself after 9/11 to never live in fear. If we can cast away fear I believe Bush will fall like a house of cards no matter who we nominate.

2. Thanks. I needed that, esp after hearing about the current poll.
"The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself." - FDR

You are so right Dabar. There is NOT one thing this pResident has achieved while in office. It's been all downhill after Clinton and we have to drive that home.

4. I'm so there and want to include
Rove the Boogey Man as a big thing we should NOT be afraid of. He puts on his storm trooper pants one leg at a time, just like all thugs.

6. I agree
and wish others would realize that, at this point, we have to do something. We all need to be very proactive. I'm volunteering for moveon.org next year.

5. So I've said for months.
Bush is vulnerable. We can take him.
