I know what you mean about the Truman Democrats, Liberals against Terror, etc., After the MoveOn people morphed from a nice, neat single-purpose coalition that I supported wholeheartedly into an ongoing movement that just had ideas of its own, I began to be nervous about signing on to groups. Historians Against War is another one: I signed it when there was a chance to stop the rush to war, but it's gone on to take positions about withdrawal, etc, that I do not support.

Precisely. I'm not a big "joiner" but I'm willing to join groups whose aims I agree with, to get our voices heard.

"Mission creep." It's not just for armies.
