Liberal 308 website now in operation.

A suggestion was made over at the Liberal 308 Facebook group that perhaps a website might be in order – not only to help spread the word, but to be usable for those folks reluctant to use Facebook. So, one of our Facebook group members, Clara Chang, took some initiative and created one.

She gave those of us who are admins over at that FB group administrative access at the website, and I thought I’d spiff it up a bit. Check the revamped Liberal 308 website. Yo can also get there now by clicking on the Liberal 308 logo in my sidebar, as I’ve changed the link in the […]

If John Mccain wants to appeal to independent voters..

.. in the remaining and dwindling time he has left to do so, my advice to him would be to make sure that he takes Michelle Bachmann, Republican Congress member from Minnesota, off the TV circuit. Watch as she says she’s concerned that Barack Obama and his wife are anti-American, and she also called for, get this, reporters to investigate which members of Congress are secretly against America. Joe Mccarthy 2008 anyone?

The Democrats, however, are secretly thanking her for her Mccarthyesque rant. When the Democratic netroots got ahold of Bachmann’s interview and displayed it for all to see, her Democratic opponent had only been given donations of […]

Dion talks to bloggers.

I’ve just finished participating in an interesting exercise. Yesterday I got an invite to participate in an “on the record” conference call that Stephane Dion was wanting to hold with various bloggers today. Those who could join the call would be able to hear some remarks he would make, and then he would answer some questions to him if any of us had any for him.

I won’t steal the thunder of all the rest of the bloggers who were on this call and who asked questions – I’m sure many of them will be posting their own thoughts, and I’m a tad rushed here – but for the specific […]

Shameless fundraising plug appeal (for the Liberals, not me)

I saw this story last night over at Steve’s place, where even he was impressed with the turnout and the welcome amount of money raised for the Dion fundraiser in Montreal.

Do you want to help boost that even more, Liberal and wanna-be Liberal members? Do you want to show that members of the Liberal Party of Canada are able to donate just as well as their Cons. counterparts? Want to help bring in more grassroots/netroots money and wean the Liberal Party off its corporate donations, which no longer works as a fundraising tool in this new era of capping donations from companies, corporations, etc?

More importantly, do you want […]

Liberals setup the Victory Fund, encourages netroots/grassroots participation.

Everyone knows that for the past couple of years, the Conservatives have been far and away the best of the political parties at getting contributions from their party members and others under the new campaign financing rules. The Liberals have been playing catchup for quite awhile. Much of this was due to the fact that the party at one time relied heavily on corporate donations and not enough from the individual party members, and it has struggled to find a way to tap individual contributions. I think you’ll find with a bit of research that CPC members donate far more to their own party’s coffers then LPC members do.

There […]
