...I'm okay with being REALITY-based.

Finding Out

What People Powered means. Citizens of this country are tired of being pushed around. Bush had a mantra of "terra" and "fear" in his speech - the entire tactic of this administration has been to try and scare the beejeebies out of us and put us in our place. The media has gone right along with it, because what's better for ratings than people fearfully watching the television to see if anything new and horrible happens? So the last weeks of battering Howard Dean culminated in the "speech" on Tuesday night, which is fueling the media's desire to be the power broker in this election.

So you'd think, that with the scare tactics, the dirty politics, the terrible image of the "speech" being replayed and replayed, that Howard Dean's campaign might be falling by the wayside just about now.

Interestingly, in just the last week, 25,000 people have signed up to actively support the campaign, bringing the total to over 600,000 committed supporters. Funny how people just aren't willing to be told what to do anymore and want to decide for themselves, isn't it?
