From 2000 until Election Day 2004, Democrats.com published the leading daily news service for America's 100 million Democrats, giving voice to Democratic activists whose views were - and continue to be - systematically excluded from the Republican-controlled, corporate-owned media. Our daily news was produced by a small team of committed patriots who believe in Truth, Justice, and the American Way.

Democrats.com was the only news site that covered the Stolen Election of 2000 in Florida. Despite the media's insistence that we "get over it," Democrats.com organized grassroots protests to "count every vote." When a partisan 5-4 Republican majority of the Supreme Court threw out 175,000 uncounted ballots to appoint Bush, Democrats.com worked with the Congressional Black Caucus to challenge Florida's electors in Congress - a scene made famous at the beginning of Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9-11. Democrats.com helped organize protests at Bush's 2000 inaugural, and at every public appearance by Bush, Cheney, and the Supreme Court Justices who appointed them - until September 11, 2001.

After September 11, Democrats.com sought the truth about Bush's failure to defend the country against 19 men with boxcutters. We supported the family members who fought for a Commission to investigate those failures, and we exposed the Commission's ultimate cover-up. And we opposed Bush's war in Iraq, which was based on lies connecting Iraq to 9-11 - lies which we exposed daily even as they were "reported" on the front pages of the New York Times and Washington Post.

Throughout the first term of the Bush administration, we exposed all of the lies they told, the crimes they committed, the policies that failed, and the core American values they betrayed. We posted thousands of links, making our archive a truly unique resource for these four years.

On Election Day 2004, Democrats.com unveiled a brand new web site, and switched from a news format to an interactive blog and discussion forum. Our .compendium archive provides a complete set of links to all of the stories covered in Democrats.com News from 2000 to 2004, organized into subject categories.

Please note: selecting a single category for each story is difficult, so you may need to try more than one category. For example, the "Bush Dictatorship" category overlaps with "Privacy/Surveillance" and "Bush Doctrine" and "Homeland Security."

You can also search our site using the .compass search box on the left side, where you can enter words, phrases, URL's, or any string of letters or numbers. This will display exact matches only, so you may need to try multiple searches to find the exact results. For example, "Al Qaeda" and "Al-Qaida" would require separate searches. A search for "qa" would cover both at once, although it might find other matches. The searches are case insensitive (capital letters are ignored). For URL searches, start with the text after "http://www."
