19. This really is stunning...

I applaud you for your follow through. We are bombarded by so much spin, lies and dirty tricks from the right--and we tend to rail against it. However, rarely does someone "follow through." It's sounds so easy, but it's not. It takes time and commitment and a willingness to seek truth, as you get attacked for it.

You took these guys on. You knew Gravis was phony and you sought the truth.

You changed things.

Seriously, this is all it takes to fight the propaganda on the right. It takes going the extra mile. However, for whatever reasons, many of us just don't. The truth is--these concocted polls and lies from Fox News and dirty tricks--are being perpetrated by thugs. It's easy to back down from something that you view as bigger than yourself. Gravis was supposedly a national poll. Taking it on, might seem futile.

However, you did it. You really are a hero.

I think people like you--who refused to take the lies and crimes--were critical in Obama's win. This time, we refused to accept dirty polls. We refused to step out of a 3 hour voting line. We refused to accept tea partiers inside our polling locations. We refused to back down to voter suppression and intimidation.

This is the year, where Democrats decides that we were done being doormats for Republican bullies. You are an amazing example of that bravery--and you should be really proud of yourself!
