The Urgency of Registering to Vote and Getting People to the Polls

I wrote a diary earlier this week that went viral, and THANK GOD IT DID. The Motherlode of All Voter Registration Information That You Need.

This diary has ALL THE INFORMATION YOU NEED to register to vote in all 50 states. It also contains information on absentee ballot per state, a website to request an absentee ballot for your state, early voting information per state, felon information per state, national voter registration form applicable for all 50 states, the Obama Campaign website for registering to vote, and all the download and online voting per state you need.

This is vital and important. The first date when voter registration ends is October 4, 2008. The way we win is getting people registered to vote and getting them to the polls.

There is NO EXCUSE for anyone not registering to vote, period.

My request is to pass my diary link along to 5 people and ask those 5 people to pass it along. Make the request urgent for folks to register to vote. People can print the voter registration request off at work, at home, at Kinko’s, or wherever. If you know someone that cannot get the application printed, PRINT IT FOR THEM and have them to fill it out and mail in to their county registrar/clerks office. Or drop the application off at the county office.

I am reeling about this because I found out today that Florida has 900,000 AAs between the ages of 18-24 that turned 18 in 2004. That’s votes folks. Indiana has registered over 500,000 new voters this year, that‘s votes folks. Virginia registration is off the chain and surpassing republican registration, that’s votes folks.

We win this by the VOTES, not the poll numbers. Again, your mission, if you accept, is to send my diary link around, talk to folks and find out if they are registered to vote, if not HELP THEM ALONG. See those teenagers on skate boards, ask them if they are 18 by November 4th, if so, guide them to a voter registration form.

We must smash the voter registration through the ceiling in all 50 states for Obama to win in November. Then our next mission is getting folks to early vote and to the polls on election day, but that is another write up.

All I am stating is this, elections are won, per state, by the MOST VOTES. Nothing more nothing less. Let's get busy, the clock is ticking away.

icebergslim’s last word: what goes around, comes around

The John McCain Campaign decided before Obama went to Europe that they would run a “personality” campaign. They attacked Obama while in the Middle East and Europe. The created the celebrity ads to make the public believe that he was a walking “empty suit”. And along the way decided they would lie, distort the truth, make shit up, rinse and repeat until the public would believe what they said as TRUE.

It was working. The polls were showing it. Obama took a hit on the “celebrity ads” and the negativity from the McCain Campaign was daily, as in ads daily. He picked Sarah “empty skirt/dress” Palin to challenge the women vote and shore up his base for GOTV. Hell, things were POPPIN’ at the McCain Camp.

Then reality set in, smack dab in the middle, after Labor Day, when the kids are back in school, PEOPLE ARE PAYING ATTENTION, the stock market and banks are about to go under!!

Politics of Personality, off the front page, and the economy is everyone’s concern. Can’t lie your way around or out of this one, it is real. Not trumped up or made up, but folks are LIVING IT. It makes issues and the responsibility of the press important now. Handing Wall Street and these banks a safety net of up to 1 Trillion Dollars without strict regulations and guidelines, do not sit well with the public. We have handed Bush/Cheney our dollars and look what happened? We don’t have anything to show for it. In fact, this country is far worse off than 8 years ago.

So, the trick bags of the McCain Campaign must be set aside. He must now face up to his record of siding with deregulation, which got us in the mess we are in today. He must face up to wanting to put social security in the free market. He must face up to wanting to manage our health care crisis like Wall Street. And so far, folks don’t like it.

The reality is that the Republican Party has been in charge these past 8 years and they ruined this country. Simple as that. Now that the Politics of Issues are front and center in Americans minds, McCain don’t have a pot to piss in.

See what happens when you do wrong? Comes right back TO YOU.
