The Victory Caucus Needs Help

As an official member of the Victory Caucus (all you have to do is put one of the thingys on your side bar and maintain an attitude) I thought I would give the head office a little boost since they put out a call.

August and September are crucial months for the war effort, both on the ground in Iraq and here at home. In September --- most likely right around September 11th --- General Petreaus will deliver his report to Congress, and defeatists are doing everything in their power to discredit and dismiss the General's findings before he even delivers them. At The Victory Caucus, we aim to ensure they fail, and that the American people get an accurate an honest understanding of the progress being made and the prospects for genuine victory.

But we need your help. Right now, the key media battlefront is not in Washington --- it's in your town; your district; your state. Congressmen and Senators are back home during the August recess, and while they are there, they need to hear from supporters of victory. If you haven't done so already, try to find out if your Congressman (and Senators) are holding "town hall" meetings while they are home --- or just try to reach them at their office. Let them know how you feel: if they have been strong on the war, thank them, and if they haven't --- politely let them know you hope they'll change their mind.

If you want to do more, we could use your help more directly. We're looking for bloggers / activists to serve as state coordinators to keep track of what's going on in each state, network with other pro-victory individuals and organizations, and coordinate local activities. If you have some time and are interested, please drop N.Z. a line (nz at victorycaucus dot com).

We also need help monitoring news on the war to keep The Victory Caucus up to date and on top of the latest events. You can now help by submitting news directly on the site. Our team will then review + post it.

Finally, there's one last easy way you can help, and that is to add The Victory Caucus to your sidebar/blogroll. This page shows a bunch of ways to do that, including a simple text link, a logo badge, and a full "widget" that displays our logo and the latest headlines from the site. The more sites include a link to us, the higher The Victory Caucus will appear in search engine rankings --- which means it will be more likely that people searching for news on Iraq will find us rather than a defeatist view on the war. So please, link away!
