YearlyKos seems so long ago doesn't it?

Yet it was only five months ago when I asked you for three things:

1.    Call Republicans and their friends in the media on their crass and hypocritical political games
2.    Make it clear where Democrats stand
3.    Never give up

Thank you for doing all of this and more. Because of you, no attack went unanswered. Because of you no lie avoided the truth. Because of you no distortion became a distraction to Democrats.

In the past five months, you have donated countless hours exposing Republicans and volunteering for Democratic candidates. Your Actblue page has raised more than $1.5 million, more than $500,000 of that for Senate candidates.

Thank you for everything you have done. Without the netroots, Democrats would not be in the position we are in today. It is as simple as that.

Today, you know what needs to be done - go vote, take your friends to vote, call your family members and make sure they are voting. If they ask why they should vote for Democrats, tell them one reason:

Republicans want to stay the course, here at home and in Iraq and Democrats want to change the course and lead the country forward in a new direction.

I wanted to speak with you directly, so I prepared a short Youtube video.

This is a busy day for all of us. However, I will try to respond in the comments to any questions you have throughout the day.

And remember, the fight does not end today. Taking back our country won't happen over night. Moving in a new direction will take time and I am grateful we are all in this together.

Let's go win.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
