Apologies for the VANITY, but wanted a thread to pass along advice. I am in a total GOP state/district...it literally does not matter if I go vote because Romney will win, and all state races will go as they go.
SO for those in this situation (or the reverse for that matter..like Cali or New York), other than give money or drive and volunteer...what can we DO. Any ideas for those of us bound to jobs and way outside of a competitive state?
This is a call to get creative. I'm not sure trolling message boards and blogs really does anything, but who knows?
In past elections you could sign up with the RNC to make phone calls to voters in swing states. I would assume you can do the same this time.
You have friends & relatives in other states, Get in touch with them and set them straight, they have friends too.
Move to Ohio or Pennsylvania
PRAY and ACT. 2 Chronicles 7:14
Give Money or Time for GOTV, not chin music for the lack of ads.
I’d actually be happier to see some money sent to guys like Pete Hoeksta in his senate race against Debbie Stabenow.
You could vote in battleground states where oblablabama’s judges have blocked voters ID laws....
That’s justice !
You can sit in the comfort of your home and help with the GOTV effort in battleground states by making calls:
Make phone calls for other parts of the country...and/or give $$$.
From the looks of your name, we must be in the same state....a lot of folks here in Mobile are going to FL to poll watch and have been going over on weekends to pass the word......I’ve made the phone calls to other states in the past but didn’t volunteer this time - got tired of having the phone hung up in my ear....LOL....
Google the email addresses of black churches in battleground states. Email a link to the You Tube video of the black preacher speaking the truth.
As in any war, send the ammunition where it’s needed the most.......................
Get Out The Vote!
Senate and House control are just as important as the WH.
So is State and Local, as that foundation controls many agendas, today, and well into the future.
We are seeing a classic example of what would happen if just the popular vote were used to elect a presidenr.
Candidates would just campaign in the northeast and laft coast. Screw the rest of the country.
I sent $250 to the NRA. Seemed the best thing to do with the money.
I was having the same thought just this morning out on my walk. There are quite a few Romney/Ryan yard signs, none for Obama, and one for Jill Stein(?). What could I do to help?
Oh, yes, and ROLL TIDE.
Move to WI. If you have lived in WI for 28 days before the election, you can vote here. Just get a bunch of friends together and rent a motel room or two for one month. Then, bring proof that you have resided in this location. This can include a check paid to the motel owner, so if you have three people in a room, divide the rent up in three and ask for a receipt from the ‘landlord’. No one will care if you stay for a day because there is no way to verify your presence. If you get some junk mail sent to you at the adress, even better because, like it or not, this is prooof of residency here. Then, on election day bring your ID, rent receipt, junk mail to your address to register. Then after the registration process, you can vote the same day. You could also reside at a friend’s house for 28 days (but you will still need some junk mail or rent receipt).
But, you only have a week to begin this process. The Dems in IL have been doing this for years to our state.
You can also look at the WI Government Accountability website for more info.
That’s what I’ve been doing. I have many family members in Ohio and I’m on it virtually every day. I’m with you Crimson Elephant and um, war eagle... although we haven’t been having the kind of season you have - I still support Bama too.
