You are assuming a rally is the one and only way to go.

What gave you that idea? But a rally is important. I don't think any progressive movement can make its living on rallies alone. But showing up in numbers and making your case heard is crucial on so many levels.

I agree that the victory is necessary. I disagree that this is a stepping stone to achieving it and suspect it will be a hostage to fortune. I've been here before and it looks horribly familiar.

understand your misgivings. But bear in mind that great things have been accomplished throughout history by people standing together and showing up in crowds. Just because things can go horribly wrong, doesn't mean they will. When people genuinely organize under a banner of "reason", I think odds are improved significantly.

Stand up. Don't give in. We'd be letting everyone down if we did.
