1. So much lost, and you want us to pick just one?
That is as impossible as picking my favorite book.

13. I didn't want a slot for all of the above.
I'm just wondering what DUers feel threatens us the most. I mean, of course the answer is all of the above, because all of these things are interconnected. They're all coming from the Bush cabal. But that being said, I think that one of the tactics of "incrementalism" (or desensitizing us to their power grab) is for us to say... well we didn't take up arms over A, and B is just a little worse than A; we didn't take up arms over B and C is just a little worse than B.

We need to pick a letter, a moment when "enough is enough". If not we're going to end up at Z before we know it.

I think watching and recording every freedom as it's usurped might be a powerful motivational tool.

4. All of the above
I can't select one of those, they're all a sign of how horrible things have become.

Bill O'Reilly being allowed to stay on the air after ordering Fox Security to call and harrass people who called in on The Factor and mentioned Olbermann's name.
If this is allowed to go unchallenged we are all in trouble.

9. Other. The criminal cabal is still in power. Every week that they remain
in Washington is a very bad week for this country.
