A Call to Action

As a McCain supporter it pains me to say this, but Obama is far superior in one aspect to John McCain - getting out the votes. As a former community organizer and with connections to ACORN and other grassroot organizations you can bet that Obama's minions are many and they will be doing whatever it takes to get out the vote and put their spin on things to media outlets. That fact coupled with the fact that the majority of the mainstream media and the drive-by media is supporting Obama and it means those undecided voters or wavering Democrats are getting a large dose of bad information.

I believe I am uniquely qualified to warn you of the organization that Obama has behind him because you see, as I try to push this skeleton back in my closet, I was once a member of such a grass root organization. As a bright-eyed young lawyer I once worked with a grass root non-profit organization. These people are passionate about their cause because they believe they are righting a wrong. They believe they are making the world a better place and they will go to great lengths to do so, some even illegal. Their passion versus the normal Republican apathy will create a battle that is very difficult for John McCain to overcome. As I write this ACORN is going door to door in lower income neighborhoods registering anyone it can find. But this isn't the only thing they are doing. Besides any illegal activities, such organizations are pounding local newspapers with canned "letters to the editor." They are doing everything they can to influence everything they can. So consider this A CALL TO ACTION for Republicans.

I am giving you the tools to try and make a difference in this election, now its up to you to take action. It is no longer just enough to vote. You have to be proactive, because I KNOW that they will be.

1. The first thing you can do is PRAY. Pray for your troops, pray for your country, and pray for John McCain and Sarah Palin and their campaign. I like to remember Ben Franklin's quote regarding God during the Constitutional Convention. He asked if we had forgotten our powerful friend (God) or if we thought we just no longer need his assistance. He then added, "I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth - that God Governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid?"

2. Write newspapers. If you are in a swing state make sure you emphasize that you are a reader of their paper. State that you would like to see articles on the related topic, or, write letters to the editor. If you are like myself and live in a state that is already pro-McCain then write newspapers in swing states. Don't be afraid to stir things up. Trust me, the other side will be pulling out all the stops. For your convenience, here are some links to the newspapers in some of the swing states. IOWA, OHIO, PENNSYLVANIA, VIRGINIA, WISCONSIN, MINNESOTA, COLORADO, NEW HAMPSHIRE, FLORIDA, NORTH CAROLINA, NEW MEXICO, NEVADA, MICHIGAN

Go to the links, get the editors' names, write them. Make your voice heard. That is the best chance we have of keeping Barack Obama out of the White House. If you do nothing, but vote and sit on your hands, Obama will prevail.

3. Contact the McCain Campaign and donate money or time. If you have money then make a donation. If you have more time than money, especially if you are in a swing state or can travel to a swing state, donate time and help get out the Republican vote. Call people. Get active. Also send McCain videos and such that you believe are important that he make the public aware of. It cannot hurt. Here is John McCain's website. JOHN MCCAIN 08.

4. Flood the News Networks. After the debates, flood the sites of the major news organizations and vote for McCain and Palin as having won the debate. Who cares if they did or not. Perception is reality. Also feel free to inundate the same news media outlets with letters, comments, questions, youtube videos that you would like to see them respond to. Here are the links to some of the organizations. CNN, ABC NEWS, , CBS NEWS, NBC NEWS, FOX NEWS, YAHOO NEWS

5. Call friends that you know in swing states - encourage them to vote and to be active. If you can travel go to their house and help the campaign in that state.

6. Here is some information that you may find helpful in convincing people. Remember you catch more flies with honey than vinegar. Do not be confrontational, have the facts on your side and be persuasive. DEMOCRATS ARGUE FANNIE AND FREDDIE NOT IN TROUBLE, TRANSCRIPT OF JOHN MCCAIN'S BILL TO REFORM FANNIE MAE AND FREDDIE MAC (Obama voted against) , REVEREND WRIGHT , HILLARY YOU DON'T CHOSE YOUR FAMILY, BUT YOU DO YOUR PASTOR, OBAMA ON US TROOPS - AIR RAIDING VILLAGES AND KILLING CIVILIANS

THIS IS A CALL TO ACTION! I have helped equip you with some links and ideas. Now go and make a difference. It is time that we put our money and time where our mouths are. John McCain needs your help. Here is your chance.
