Tonight, 7pm in Troy, I'll be joined by some of Michigan's most recognizable bloggers for a discussion about the future of Michigan's democratic system. I hope you'll join us too.
Several months ago, I was honored to be asked by the Troy Democratic Club to speak to their group about blogging. After a little discussion, the subject quickly evolved into a look into the entire realm of online activism. When all was said and done, the title became Online Activism: The Future of Michigan's Democratic Process.
Without a doubt, politics has drastically changed over the last 20-30 years. By nature, humans are opposed to change, thus creating a very disharmonious equation for a fluid transition. A prime example of this was '94 Elections, when Democrats faced one of the most disastrous losses in our Party's history. Thankfully, the pendulum seems to have finally swung back.
The '06 Elections were an incredible victory, but we're foolish if we stop now. There's a long laundry list of issues for the American people that need to be addressed. We must keep developing ourselves, our platforms, our candidates, and the means by which we reach out to our country. One of the prime methods for that outreach will be the online medium, whether it be through blogs, websites, social networking groups, primary voting, or even just email.
Join me tonight for a discussion that will change the way you look at the internet and the future of local, state and national politics. Discover how you can be a part of the change that revolutionizes Democratic politics even if you've never looked at a political blog or website. Ensure that the Democratic Party continues to be the true Party of the People for generations to come.
