A few months ago we documented several cases of the left’s use of astroturf.   The tea parties keep gaining momentum and now the liberal left has resorted to paying people to counter protest and organize.  The joke to me is that they are only paying $24,000 a year and having you work 80 to 100 hrs a week.   Most of the people who are voted for “change” I suspect will stay at home and collect government benefits than organize people to counter “Glenn Beck.”

Change takes work. After the 2008 Election, we know what’s possible when millions of people commit themselves to creating the world they want to see – but we also know that one election is only the beginning. Across the country, the struggle for human rights, marriage equality, and reproductive rights continues. To counter the hysteria and lies of Glenn Beck and other talking heads, progressives need to get organized and get activated – and we don’t have a moment to lose!!
