If You Live in a Blue State, Here Is What You Can Do To Help Romney Beat Obama
Sept. 14, 2012 | Ziva

Posted on 09/14/2012 6:54:13 AM PDT by Ziva

No matter where you live in the USA, you can make a difference in this election by going to http://www.mittromney.com/call-home-landing.

I live in NY, a hopelessly blue state. There is very little I can do locally to help Romney. However, they have an excellent phone-from-home system this year, much better than other phone banks I've done before.

I started making phone calls from home for Romney. It is easy, well-supported, and free. It is important to start now so they can target the right people for the campaign. You can get started at http://www.mittromney.com/call-home-landing

They will direct your calls to the states where they need the most help, so don't worry about calling out-of-state. There are no long-distance charges because the system calls you first to enable you to make the calls to others.

I sat on my hands last election and didn't work because I didn't like McCain. (Of course, I voted.) Even though Romney was not my first choice, another Obama win would be disasterous. Please pass this on to all your political friends. The calls made now help identify voters who can be moved to vote for Romney.

My goal is to make at least 10,000 calls. That comes out to about 200 calls a day which can be done in less than three hours. They really make it quick and easy. I do not want to be partly responsible for 0bama getting reelected.

No one should feel that if he or she can make just 100 calls, it is not worth the effort. EVERY effort helps and WILL make a difference. If you can call only one hour a week, then you WILL have done your part.

I do want to remind of the the reality of phone-banking. Some people will be hostile or rude, may hang up brusquely, insult you, or try to engage you in time-wasting arguments. Just end the call politely and move on to the next call. Do not be discouraged by these calls.

There is a place for notes for each call. If the person is a Romney voter, I ask if they need help getting to the poll or need an absentee ballot and put that information in the note field. If an undecided voter tells me what campaign issue is important to him, I note that as well.

Your important work will show the campaign all undecided voters that can be influenced with campaign materials, and all Romney voters for a get-out-the-vote (GOTV) effort at the end of the campaign.

Many of us are suffering in this bad economy and can donate little money to this campaign. If you do have the money to donate, please do. However, my point is that we all can donate some time to help, and it is as good as money to a campaign.

If you are in red or purple state, then I hope you get involved with the local Romney campaign. You can still use spare time at home to make phone calls.

If you are in a blue state, then please join me in doing what you can from home with phone calls.

Next, please pass this on to your friends everywhere. Let's create an army of workers bigger than the unions do for the Dems. And please let me know personally if this helped you get started working on the campaign.

I spent a good amount of time talking with a family friend who said she voted Obama because she was a democrat and her family always voted dem. She had no computer.

I shared some simple truths with her and subsequently got her to read a couple of things I printed out for her. In 2010 she re-registered and voted (R).

Here's the good part: like someone with a new love or new diet she began talking to everyone she knew and proudly shared what she had learned about government, taxes, business and basic freedoms. She ended up talking her two daughters (20 and 23) into registering and voting for the first time/ They went (R) also. I was personally responsible for 3 new voters, but think what we could do if just 1 out of 4 of us would make the effort to convert just one new voter!

Terrific! I’m no Romney fan but we can’t take another four years of Obama. Nothing will hold him back if he wins. There will be no need to pretend. Let’s all get on board and do what we can. Our Founding Fathers pledged “our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor”. Turning this country around will take more than posting to the choir here at FR.

Outside of asking if someone needs a ride to the polling place on election day, I for one, detest all these calls.

I detest the fact we allowed politicians to exclude themselves from the Do Not Call list. Just one more example of how our politicians view us as peons to only appease during the election season.

In 2010, it became so bad with so many calls, I phoned the local GOP chairman and asked “outside of physical violence what do I have to do to stop you people from calling?”

He tried to brush me off so I told him the name of every democrat I would vote for if I received one more call.

Somehow the message came through and no more calls.

Who cares who wins. There is no alternative to corrupt governmant juat a variation... The house and even Rayn just voted to give Obama every dime he wanted. Obama hasnt been the irresponsible one the republicans in the house are by feeding his communist plans with every stinking dime he wanted. They are culpable and cannot be trusted with our liberty anymore than the left.

I am convinced evil is evil and I will not support evil whether its an R or a D

Im out of this round. The country is dead either way.

I agree 100%.

I will not help with calling for this exact reason.

I am in favor of the proposed amendment which says that elected officials are subject to every law they pass. No exceptions. If I have to follow the law, they have to follow the law.

Mr. Political Candidate, DO NOT CALL ME.

This is EXACTLY the approach we should be taking. Bless you for this!

Your approach has so many advantages:
1. It works!
2. Cost effective. No need to donate money to any organization. Nothing siphoned off for the professional fundraisers and bureaucracy.
3. Doesn’t annoy anyone with an unwanted call from a stranger.

...and probably many more advantages that I haven’t thought of.

Great job, Baynative! (I’m still working on my niece who voted for 0. She’s good-hearted, but young and naive. I’m trying not to push too hard, which could have the effect of just making her dig her heels in to prove that she is “independent.”)

Your #10 is dead on. Obama didn’t spend all that money, the Republicans as much as the Democrats voted to give it to him then they complain that he got the money.

It’s a one party system with a few exceptions tossed in to make it look good.

Live calls are OK. Thank You for doing your part! :-)

BUT, any Robocall I get will result in a “no” vote for the candidate.

I know someone in the campaign, and I told him this. People HATE Robocalls. They will do more harm than good.

Thank you for the information. I personally have hated doing the calls because I am afraid I it is going to be irritating to people, but I know it is still effective. In the 2008 election, Republicans did not have a strong political mechanism in place. There were very few calls made in my area compared to the number for the Democrats. The Democrats won. They didn't worry about irritating anyone. They plugged on with their Democrat machine. Since we are so dependent on the clueless, uninformed, and misinformed to tip the scales and vote for our side in this election, it is very important to make the calls and at least get some name recognition working for us.

If Romney wants the presidency, let him fund it himself.

And if you’ve got money to spend on politicians, spend it on conservatives.

I suppose you have never worked a professional political phone bank. What it does is NOT badger, annoy, and brow beat people into voting for Romney.

Instead, it seeks to identify voters who can be swayed with other forms of influence. The purpose is to identify voters for further contact. Nothing more than that.

Yeah, there were some moralist-with-no-real-concept-of morals types around here in 2000 who said there was no difference between Dubya and Algore, too. On Septemebr 11, 2001 we found out how wrong they were. On Septemeber 11, 2012 we found out just how stupid people like you are.

Even if your short-sighted, generalist blather were correct, this election is between a guy who believes his job as President is to force people to violate their religion so other people can avoid the horror of paying $9 a month for birth control and a guy who believes in religious liberty. It’s an election between a guy who bows to tyrants and gets Americans killed and a guy who will stand up for our country.

If you can’t see the difference, get off FR and go look at LOLcats. Of course, you’re so blind you’ll probably start that process by typing “potato” into the search engine...

I’ve had some of them try that recently. Two got downright snarly and provocative, one “Tomorrow Belongs to Me” kid and one closet homo sounding guy. The pricks come to my house, on my phone, and think they will instruct me in how I will vote? How I detest this Punch and Judy puppet show!

I gave too much money last time in hopes for Palin as VP. No good deed goes unpunished.

In 2010 she re-registered and voted (R).

A good portion of the problem is that most dem voters vote out of lack of knowledge. And, they have no idea they lack the proper knowledge; proper meaning original limited government, property rights, individual freedom - and how all these (and more) tie directly together. The notion that they lack this knowledge, let alone the notion of conveying even a small piece of it, cannot happen on the typical political phone call. These calls run on the paradigm that "touching" a voter enough times gets their vote, with calls, post cards, lawn signs, bumper stickers, ads, etc. Instead, the paradigm you used on this woman is really the most effective, most efficient, most long-lasting method to right our upside-down ship...

To those who say, “No, the calls piss people off,” I say, they also happen to work. Campaigns with strong phone banks win elections, campaigns that don’t have them don’t.

It’s like negative ads. Everyone says they hate them, but the campaigns that use them win and the campaigns that don’t, don’t.

My focus with our family friend was mostly about economy because she knew people who were struggling.

BUT - I think the task is easier this year. A young person who voted for Obama can be changed by asking them why they did so, what they expected and what they are getting. If they try to answer with Chris Matthews' talking points the rebuttals are easy. Obama has failed in every category ...or has he succeeded? We can point to his failings based on his promises or we can go deeper and get into his life's training and mission to bring America down to pay for our sins as he learned from Frank Marshall Davis, Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers.

a young person who has some gumption might like to know how naive it is to follow the lead of the media and maybe even turn the light on some of their friends during a coffee shop conversation.

I'd like to see widespread commercial efforts start poking fun at the morons who have fallen victim to the blind faith of liberalism without questioning any of it.

Isn't it ironic that one of the iconic bumper stickers of the left so often seen around the college campus is "Question Authority", when what they are being taught is to vote for more authority in every facet of their life?

The woman I helped switch was voting (D) out of habit. She really had no thought behind it all. With people who vote(D) because they have been taught liberalism, the conversion is much harder because they have been conditioned not to discuss or ponder issues, but to respond with retorts and talking points as if in a sophomore debate.

Someone said, "something dies in a person's soul when they discover something they believe isn't true". That is a truism we all need to recognize. It is why we hold strong to our beliefs even when doubt begins to creep in.

Don't forget he was able to make two conservative Supreme Ct. appointments. Obamacare notwithstanding, Roberts is still far more conservative than anyone Gore would have appointed. I'm hoping the Obamacare decision wasn't the start of him becoming a Kennedy type justice - although Kennedy voted against it.

Then you've got the two justices Obama appointed, Sotomayor and Kagan.

One thing has nothing to do with the other. Having politicians follow the same laws is a desirable goal, something most people here I'm sure support.

However, political candidates who have not been in Congress are certainly not responsible for the lack of passage of such a bill. Romney certainly is not to blame. In fact, neither is 0bama. The leadership who controls Congress determines which bills appear on the floor.

The purpose of the political call is not to aggravate you but rather to identify potential voters and develop the contacts. Good phone bank info is essential for a successful campaign.

Thank you, Ziva, for posting. That’s a great idea!

I’d like to share this with those who doubt the need to get rid of Zero at any and all costs, even if that means voting for a “non-conservative” like Romney. In this election, it really is better to vote for the lesser of two evils… At least with Romney, it would appear that the goal is to keep America as #1 in the world. Better an American RINO than an un-American non-American!

This is Dinesh D’souza talking about his book, “Obama’s America: Unmaking the American Dream”. Please watch, if only the first few minutes (it’s a bit long at over an hour, but well worth anyone’s time):

You donated money to one of the richest men in America?!

http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Latest-News-Wires/2012/0602/Romney-net-worth-remains-near-250-million

If Romney wants the presidency, let him fund it himself.

And if you’ve got money to spend on politicians, spend it on conservatives.”

Fair points, and I have donated directly to several conservative candidates. I hadn’t planned on donating to Romney partly because of what you’re saying (he’s got plenty of $) and partly because I don’t like him all that much. But as the election approaches, I’m getting more pissed off by the day at the media and their utterly transparent attempts to cover up the obvious incompetence of this administration, while Obama skips intel briefings, runs off to Vegas while the Middle East is burning, refuses to meet with Israeli PM while agreeing to go on Letterman, etc. I just can’t take another 4 years of this! And more importantly, our country can’t survive it!

So yeah, I see what you’re saying, but these times are too critical to get hung up with Romney’s imperfections. You can read my rants about Romney during the primaries, we already fought that battle, and we lost. Now we’ve gotta get in the game and get remove this Marxist from the White House. Once we accomplish that, then we can worry about holding Mitt’s feet to the fire and perhaps primarying him in 2016.

Toward that end, I made a small $25 donation to Romney and I’m going to make phone calls for him as well. And not to mention, I’m also working my ‘circle of influence’ to make sure I convince any of my friends that are persuadable that we can’t afford another 4 years of this.

Thanks, lquist1, that is exactly the reason I wrote this post. Most people here never wanted Romney in the primary, but, and forgive me for shouting this:

THE BEST IS THE ENEMY OF THE GOOD.

For some people here, if he isn't the best, he isn't worth supporting. Would they rather have a candidate who agrees with them 60% of the time or one that agrees with them 0.001% of the time?

I hope most of us here wake up and work to prevent a repeat of the debacle that happened in 2008.

You sir are and impressive thinker and clearly superior to little ol me. During my second tour of Viet Nam I learned that in the face of tough situations patience can save you and others. Im sure your a tough guy and would like to kick my ass and probably can. I reject however that you are morally superior to anything you wanna name.

Now, if you want me outta here your gonna have to try harder than that. And for your consideration I will do what ever I please between now and November without any need for your permission and I hope you do the same cause you dont need mine. That, in case you didnt know it is what liberty is about..

Really? You served in Vietnam and you can’t tell the difference between a commie and a couple of patriotic guys you disagree with on policy like Romney and Ryan? Maybe Obama could do a presser in black pajamas so you could get a clue.

Thanks for serving. Please get over yourself.
