(mostly just posting this so I can use my hypnotoad icon again.  well, that and there might be some interested folks on my f-list)

The White House announced that President Obama will hold a final, pre-vote rally for health care reform at the George Mason University Patriot Center on Friday.  The doors open at 9 a.m. with the President scheduled to speak around 11:30 a.m.  The event is open to the public and
no tickets are necessary.

I am calling for Fairfax County Democrats to join in the rally to support one of the most important pieces of legislation in our lifetime.  We are planning to have sign-carrying supporters surround the Patriot Center and roads leading to the area.  A sign making and phone banking party will take place Thursday afternoon from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the George Mason campus.  Also we need your help Friday morning at 8 a.m. to stand outside the Patriot Center to greet people as they arrive.  Please come to join these efforts.  Extensive national media coverage is anticipated.  Every effort will be made to bring our rally supporters into the Patriot Center in time to hear the President.

The details and links to sign up are listed below.  Don’t let the Tea Party Republicans have the last word.  This is your chance to get involved and be heard.

I want to share some quotes from my friendslist this morning. (I know some of these posts are behind f-locks, but they are completly share worthy).

"The sun is not shining, but good-god-damn is it a beautiful day!"

"it took me three tries to be able to say "Barack Obama is the next President of the United States," for all the right reasons."

"We all decided to drive down to the White House, and by time I got there I had experienced a DC I never would have believed. Carloads of people driving by and cheering, spontaneous parades of hundreds, blacks and whites celebrating the same cause."


** videos of people dancing in the streets **

"In those early morning hours, there was nothing but love between neighbors. At the very site of the worst of the 1968 riots, there was dancing instead."

"But I believe for the first time in years that yes, yes we can."

"I have always been proud to be an American. But for the last 8 years, I felt like I needed to apologize... to apologize for our bumbling leader, for our quagmire in Iraq, for the economy, for how we've squandered the support we had from the world after September 11th.

Now.... I'm not ashamed. A great weight has been lifted off the shoulders of so many of us who watched the last 8 years, cringing over every mis-pronounced word, every poor decision made.

There is so much work to do... but right now I will let my hope glow."

"It's such a beautiful thing to be moved to tears by the man who is going to be my president, celebrating with the thousands of people on TV, and then waking up and celebrating with all my friends via the internet. I have hope for my country like I have never had before, and I'm inspired to do whatever small part I can to help make my hope a reality. Wow."

"I woke up at 12:30 and checked the results, said a prayer of thanksgiving, and went back to sleep."

Hope.

best campaign promise ever!
