Sometimes, I still feel disappointed about this election. Sometimes, I keep asking myself "Where's Hillary?" Sometimes, I become frightened at the thought of Democrats losing. Sometimes, I still wish I could see Hillary back on the campaign trail again.
Sometimes, I wonder what the hell I'm doing now. But you know what? I just can't keep looking back. I can't let Hillary down now.

Last week I saw a partial screening (55 minutes) of one of the best political documentary films I've ever seen, "Taking the Hill". The final product (90 minutes) airs on the Discovery Times Channel this Tuesday, Dec. 12, at 9:00 EST. Discovery Times is available on most digital & satellite cable systems.

It is hard to believe it has been a year since we started this project. It seemed only right to focus as much attention as possible on Veterans since that is the reason I decided to run for office. If my only accomplishment is providing volunteers and/or donations to these worthy causes, I consider it an overwhelming success. As we wrap up the year, take a look back at any one of those in which you may feel moved by and give a little. This is the time of year where each becomes infinitely more important than any one thing we do alone.

Thanks to everyone here in the "netroots" community and the greatest campaign manager that money didn't buy; we all can be happy with our efforts. Thanks for supporting us and sticking with us through the ups and downs.
Hopefully, we can stop spending billions of dollars to elect our representatives and focus that money back on the people who need it.
All of us need to collectively put our heads together and start thinking of ways to capitalize on the momentum. In some races, the money spent was worth it and some it just outright backfired on us. It is not about the money it is about message.
Our campaign is living proof of that:
We raised less than $30,000 but still managed to make Barton run a "re-election" campaign this year.
Our major accomplishments:
Endorsed by WESPAC
Endorsed by SecureUS
Endorsed by VETPAC
Endorsed by Esquire magazine
Photo shoot in Vanity Fair
We forced Barton to update both his campaign website and his House website
We did not have a full time "office" or "paid" staff - it was all done virtually and with volunteers
The numbers above speak for themselves - we chipped away at his base, and then some...
