After Nov. 4 -- Put the Pressure on Congress

[Since I published this post, I received an e-mail the Nader/Gonzalez Campaign sent out directing people interested in working on putting pressure on Congress after November 4th, to this website: http://november5.org]

Back at the beginning of the year, when Ralph Nader launched his presidential exploratory committee, he said he wanted to build from the campaign after November--to start Congressional Watchdog groups in each congressional district. (If you don't remember, I pasted their announcement in this post.) Well, now's the time to sign up to make it happen.

Here's an excerpt of a facebook message about it:

Here's the Nader blogspot. This is an easy place to sign up (or have your friends sign up) to form an ongoing citizen movement that will continue on past the election. We'll be keeping an eye on congress and the new president--no matter who is elected.

The campaign has this new video out about it as well:

As Ralph Nader says at the end of the video:

This is just the end of the beginning. The Nader/Gonzalez third political force is going to roar through November 4th and into 2009 to build a progressive politics in America that enlists the human values and the practical needs of the American people.

Whoever is elected, we're going to have to put pressure on Congress to stand for us and our rights instead of corporations, bailouts, and war. So sign up at the website above and at votenader.org -- and get involved!
