Here’s the note I got via email a short time ago.
Back in 2004, we were constantly looking for new ways to organize and motivate people. The Internet helped us reach and energize people like never before, but the Democratic Party’s suite of tools is a huge step forward.
No matter who wins the nomination next year, PartyBuilder will allow you to easily continue your work to help elect a Democratic president. That means the Democratic nominee can hit the ground running with the largest online network of support ever built.
PartyBuilder combines some of our most powerful online outreach resources into one central place, where every Democrat can use them for free. It’s a permanent part of the 50-state strategy and an integral piece of our plan for taking back the White House in 2008.
Thousands of Democrats have already joined, including all of our presidential candidates. Their campaigns are waiting to connect with you:
PartyBuilder thrives on this sort of do-it-yourself openness that drives Republicans crazy.
They have their own “social-networking” program where every move you make is carefully monitored by their leadership. As one Republican strategist put it: “There is a great fear of open systems in GOP circles.”
PartyBuilder is much more than a simple social networking tool, and our approach would never work in the GOP’s top-down model of control. Gov. Dean came to Washington with a promise to put our Party’s power back where it belongs: in the hands of regular people in every state across the country. PartyBuilder offers the technology we need to make such a distributed model work.
People-powered politics takes one important ingredient: people. Join the PartyBuilder network:
In 2004, Gov. Dean used the Internet to revolutionize politics. Now, with PartyBuilder, you can connect with others on the issues that matter most to you, and you can keep that momentum going into 2008.
