Politics Online

Opposition Blog Swarm has a primer on the blogosphere expanding online action.

We need links to action items blogged before the standard block-quote from the latest story. If Ashcroft were to be nominated, the best post would start out, "Help People for the American Way stop this madness" and then have the news quotes and the analysis on the updated situation. But start with the action, that must be the concern.
As more and more online quantification is based upon the number of links, a focus on compounding links is critical. Many of us have freeped Yahoo news, but posting links lets us freep If you see something smart, link and echo it. Especially calls to action, if you see an Action you agree with, link and echo it.

Online Political Warfare 101 goes on to suggest cooperation with BlogPAC:

Most of us understand the necessity of winning online. Who would we rather decide our ad strategy than the people behind BlogPAC?

Here's a partial list of the bloggers behind BlogPac, those serving on the advisory board. Markos Moulitsas of Daily Kos, Jerome Armstrong of MyDD, Duncan Black of Atrios, Jeralyn Merritt of Talk Left, John Aravosis of AmericaBlog, Matt Stoller of BOP News, Anna of Annatopia, Jesse Taylor of Pandagon, & others that are aligned with the effort. We will have more info on the direction of BlogPac in the near future.

It is important for our third of the country to know how they are
fucking up our Country. But it is imperative that our third also be versed in what Action we are taking to oppose the administration. It is time to fight back and online is the quickest method.
