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.”)
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?
