Eric, here are three amazing things that happened after you clicked a Daily Kos email in February:
You helped stop a war against Iran. The Menendez sanctions bill would have torpedoed the President’s negotiations, and nearly had a veto-proof majority in the U.S. Senate. But Daily Kos community members sent 142,661 emails to their senators, turned the tide and got enough Democrats to back off.
You got Obama to drop Social Security cuts. As part of a larger team effort with coalition partners, over 240,000 of you worked for months to save Social Security and stop a chained CPI with emails and petitions. On Thursday, the White House announced that chained CPI will not be in the President's budget proposal—scoring a huge victory against the austerity crowd.
You saved public wifi in Kansas. After reading it in a Daily Kos Recommended email, over 11,000 of you shared a community diary on Facebook that explained how the Kansas legislature was about to block cities from offering free public Internet. You made that story go viral, and within three days the bill was dead. Boom.
At Daily Kos, we're sick of fundamentalist bigots and right-wing billionaires dominating American politics. That's why we keep scaling up the nation's largest progressive community--to make sure that the progressive grassroots are heard in every fight. We have doubled in size since last March--from two million to four million--and in order to keep growing we need to add a fifth member to our small activism team. But we can’t do this without you.
