Call to Action Reminder
Good people -
I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that the future of our country hangs on the knife edge of this election. And while we'd like to believe things are swinging our way, it's by no means certain we will succeed in taking it back, hauling it from the edge of the cliff.
One thing is certain: to do so we must get every single possible voter out and votes cast for R/R. AND give them a Congress to work with for the next 4 years. Because the election is just the first step. And if we fail the election, we won't have any do-overs. The trends are dangerous: financially, economically, in the abrogation of civil liberties, geopolitically, in our schools and courts and other institutions.
So: if you haven't done so already, or even if you have, please consider what you can still do to carry momentum forward and make this a successful turn around:
I know, I know. We're all sick to death of this interminable election season. We have lives and daily challenges. Perhaps, like me, you've never been one of the people voted Most Likely To Succeed in Politics.
Do it anyway. In the spirit of the Tea Party, rise up and get out and help take this country back. This is our future, our children's and grandchildren's future - and if we blow it, that future will be dim indeed.
Donate, if you can - to R/R, to RNC, to Mia Love or Josh Mandel or any of the other newcomers we desperately need on the Hill
Volunteer. You can phone from home, pick up people and drive them to vote early or secure an absentee ballot. You can join other volunteers in local coordination offices. Just ask - I know there are many many small things you can contribute that will make the difference. If you hate phoning or knocking on doors or driving people, volunteer to bring in sandwiches to the local group in your area while they carry on.
Volunteer, if you can, to be a poll watcher on Nov. 6 and to send back info to the campaign as the day progresses.
If you're in a red state, and it's really solidly red, help with GOTV to keep it locked in, volunteer to call into other states, use your credit card to add that $10 or $25 to any of the campaigns that need it.
I am not a registered Republican. Nor am I quite as old as (and certainly not famous like) Clint Eastwood. But he and I agree on this: our country cannot survive 4 more years of this president and of his enablers in Congress.
Please - do what you can. If you detest the whole political scene do it for our uniformed military who are dying unneceessarily under the current CIC. But please - do it. Now. There is very little time left to win this.
