The RNC so far has NOT talked about issues that Americans want to talk about that are important to us: health care, education, finance, energy solutions, etc. They don’t have a plan and are not interested in any plan other than continuing George W. Bush’s FAILED plans of the last 8 years – and you KNOW where that has gotten us.
Even if your income increased, are you better today than you were 8 years ago? Do you have more money saved? Is your 401K account growing? Did you loose your job? Do you have good health care? Is your child’s school operating effectively – do they have enough books and supplies?
We are NEAR the end of this election cycle. In 57 days this will ALL be over. We’ll either have President Obama or McCain (God forbid!!!).
We ALL have to re-energize our self so we can win this race. Don’t be discouraged by the polls. In Electoral College polls Obama is leading (Electoral College votes in what counts in the general elections).
Rather than directly voting for the President and Vice President, we cast votes for electors who in turn cast formal votes for the President and Vice President.
You don’t have to be a citizen or need to be over 18 to volunteer. Even if YOU personally can’t vote you can volunteer and help to register people to vote and that’s VERY important. I am encouraging EVERYONE reading this to personally register a least 5 people and make sure your 5 get to the polls on Tuesday, November 4.
It’s been reported that 1/3 of Americans who are eligible to vote are NOT even registered!!! That means every one of us knows a couple of people we can register to vote. EVERY vote counts!!!
1-866-MYVOTE1 or 1 -866-698-6831. They can register OVER THE PHONE.
Or go to http://www.rockthevote.org/ and help them to register to vote.
You don’t have to be a citizen or 18 to help to register people to vote. If you volunteer for Obama you can do a lot even if you’re not a citizen or if you’re under 18.
In my Florida for Change office we’re focusing on registering voters and making calls right now. All campaign offices nationwide are going to need LOTS of help on Election Day to get people out to the polls, etc. I have personally taken Election Day off so that I can drive people to the polls.
If you would like to volunteer register at: http://www.barackobama.com/index.php
Just select your ‘state’ and join your state chapter.
Or text “HOPE” to 62262 (OBAMA).
We’re near the end of this journey. Please stay focused. If we do this TOGETHER we will stand on top of the mountain – white, black, yellow, brown, red and everything in between — TOGETHER.
But please volunteer if you can – that MATTERS a lot!
And IF you are a NATURALIZED citizen please REGISTER to vote.
If you are already registered to vote; please make sure you know where your physical voter registration card is. There will be LOTS of trickery on November 4 and it will be important to have your voter registration card even if you’ve never needed it before.
IF you can’t find your voter registration card go to http://www.rockthevote.org/ and re-register. It will give you the option to get a copy of your registration card.
Please help by participating.
If you can, “VOTE EARLY” this will alleviate being denied your right to vote at the polls. EVERY VOTE COUNTS!
I am EVEN MORE fired up and ready to go!!!
