27 Days Left -- What did you do TODAY to help Republicans win?
Free Republic Exclusive | 10/9/08 | Antoninus

Posted on 10/09/2008 6:05:42 PM PDT by Antoninus

There are 27 days left for you to make a difference in the 2008 political season.

What you are doing in a POSITIVE way to help elect McCain/Palin and Republicans and defeat Obama/Biden and the Democrats?

Please note that the following actions do not count:

1.) Seagulling on a thread highlighting positive developments.

2.) Offering the McCain campaign advice on what they should be doing (unless you're a paid political consultant with years of experience, that is).

3.) Thinking you're funny by saying, "I did nothing." The prospect of Barack Obama as president of the U.S.A. is not funny.

There are many positive, meaningful things we can and should be doing to help achieve victory. Much of this involves volunteering for the campaign and getting out into your community with the truth about Obama and his abysmal record, inexperience, and shady associates.

The media won't do it, so it's up to us. Are you up to the challenge?

If so, sound off on this thread!

Here's what I did today:

1.) posted my Democrats For McCain (PDF) flyer on FaceBook.

2.) wrote a blog article about pay parity in publishing and linked in Obama's hypocrisy on that issue.

3.) bought some McCain/Palin buttons on CafePress to give away to some college-aged friends.

4.) contributed some $$ to the McCain/Palin Victory 2008 joint fundraising committee

I’d be interested in hearing what McCain actually did this week to help Republicans win.

The prospect of Barack Obama as president of the U.S.A. is not funny.

Neither is the prospect of John McCain as president of the USA.

What did the REPUBLICANS do to help Republicans win?

Or did they continue curling up in a fetal crouch whimpering, “Why don’t they like us?”

I’m making phone calls. You can register to make phone calls at the McCain-Palin official site.

It is easy.

For the second day in a row, a defeatist is the first to post on this thread.

I'm detecting a pattern.

Since when did FR become populated with such losers? I've been here for nearly 10 years--it never used to be like this.

An important and underestimated aspect of this election.

I'm trying to say a rosary every morning for McCain/Palin.

I was buying tires at Walmart and got into it with a Bush hater, Obama supporter, behind the service counter. Before it was done there was a crowd of 9 cheering me on. I really let him have it. When it ended, he said “I don’t vote anyway” and walked off.

EMBARRASSED is a word that came to mind afterwards. Sheesh, was I mad.

But I did what I had to do, got in his face, right Barry Hussein Obama.

I’ve been spreading the word about Obama’s relationship with his former employer/mentor/friend Bill Ayers. Despite what the pundits on television and in print have been telling us, I think that this is a positive thing to do. Ayers and Obama’s project in the ‘90’s to indoctrinate kids with Marxist propaganda is negative.

1. Prayed for God's guidance and protection for McCain and Palin.

2. I talked to my college aged daughter about Obama's radical past and how Ayers, etc fit into the picture - knowing she'll go back to classes on Monday and tell her friends.

volunteered at RNC headquarters here in town, manned phone bank for 4 hours , signed up to be a poll watcher on Nov. 4.,bought Sarah Palin apparel for my daughters and myself, called my deeply religious sister and convinced her not to vote for Obama (still working on my Dad), argued (and kicked A$$) with an Obama supporter who foolishly assumed I was an Obama fan, and bought Corsi’s book. Can't wait til tomorrow.!!

McCain is acceptable if not preferable. Like him or not, he's a bona fide war hero and a patriot.

Obama is an outright international socialist. He's a radical ally of the far left with violent and racist associates. If that's not enough to get you to the polls, then you deserve to live under a regime headed by such a person.

Sarah Palin as VP is the real reason I'm pumped for this election. If McCain wins, Sarah wins, and in the end, we all win.

I answered the phone when the RNC called to demand (yes, demand) a $300 donation, listened politely, and hung up.

I then donated $100 to my Representative.

Since when does the RNC not only DEMAND a donation, but tell you how much it will be? W T F ???

I finally got on my local newspaper's forum and started posting material about Obama. Naturally I immediately got feedback which I have been replying to.

What irritated me was one of the newspaper's columnists who wrote a silly article about ‘why can't we all just get along’ as to politics, lol!

I agree. Getting the truth out there about Obama is always positive and we can't expect the media to do it for us. You can flip votes with this information and it should be used accordingly.

Great. Every youth vote we can flip is one less for Barry O. Focus on the responsible ones--i.e., the ones who will actually make the effort to vote on November 4.

I am posting like crazy at CafeMom, trying to combat the mindless masses. I have been checking in over here for the latest scoop but we’re preaching to the choir, folks!

Go out and find forums at aol or elsewhere and do battle. Keep in factual—there are plenty of people on the fence. The libs can be quite nasty, but we can handle it! Quit hanging around with those of a like mind set. Get off the conservative blogs for a bit.

Also, volunteer to go door-to-door and make GOTV phone calls with your local GOP headquarters. I can’t do it this weekend, but did last weekend and will next.

It's hardly defeatism to demand that McCain put on the big boy pants and fight.

I do not regret supporting him with my money and effort.

But I do regret that he appears to be wasting it.

All the support we have to give won't do a lick of good unless McCain knocks off this Marquis of Queensbury shtick in the last debate.

So yes, I demand to know just what he has done this week to help Republicans win.

As for it never having been like this for 10 years, I'd have to agree. Few of us have had to deal with this kind of challenge, myself included. No matter who wins, the next 4 years are going to be a whole new ballgame.

He better pick it up a notch. Is it true that he has ruled the Rev. Wright off limits? So far he is letting the girl do most of his heavy lifting.

It’s not funny to me, but I did nothing tangible at all. I have been praying, but I should be able to do more.

I feel so powerless, like fate is at hand. When I feel powerless, I just pray. It’s all I can see to do.

FWIW, I have an ongoing project with a number of my friends and associates.

So far I have moved one from Obama at first to third party and finally to McCain. Two more have moved from third party vote to McCain. A few others I am at the least trying to get to move from Obama to third party vote.

The most obstinate one of the bunch I have decided to convince that it's not worth it to vote because it doesn't count. At the least it denies Obama a vote.

Not much, but I do what I can.

Nevertheless, my statement stands.

Ha! It just sunk in that "Obama" is not in the FR spell-check.

I choose to let the paid political guys run the campaign. They know things we're not privy to.

And if McCain doesn't swing for the fences, what's stopping us from doing so? It's not just for him that we're working to defeat Obama--it's for all of us. In my case, it's for my kids.

I try to keep that foremost in my mind.

“Since when did FR become populated with such losers? I’ve been here for nearly 10 years—it never used to be like this. “

You kidding me? Ok, I’ve only been here 4 years, but for the most part FR is stocked with solid conservatives.

Mcpain needs to sack up, he let that fooking bolshevik lie his azz off left and right on Tuesday and didn’t say Sh*t about it..

For crying out loud meet us half way... Did you see the guy in Waukesha tonight BEG him to fight!! What the hell -

McCain should wipe the floor with this punk - but he’s not doing anything... If we weren’t up against such an absolute communist, McCain would be in big trouble.

I always pass on the conservative message anytime I can and I take offense your comment.. I’ll take McCain and especially Palin in a heart beat, will McCain take me??? Show me something to fight for.
