I am in Texas and have been looking for a nationwide board like this to get a good idea out there to get more votes for McCain/Palin. I saw that thousands of Obama supporters marched to the polls this week to open early voting. My idea might combat that but it will be up to everyone to play a part in it. PLLEEZZEE take the time to read this and help. Take action, dangit! 2-3 weeks ago, I heard that Obama had "opened up a double-digit lead". A thought seemed to burst into my head - where are all the WWII veterans? I just happened to be passing by a new nursing home, and, you guessed it, it hit me they were in there! I inquired as to how their residents were voting. The Activities Director instantly told me he needed volunteers to help them do just that. I posted this on a local board and asked 4 people to join me, thinking I might get one. Well, all of'em couldn't wait to actually do something to stop the way things "appear" to be headed. Get out from your computer! Those Obama people on the board won't listen anyway In the next week, we are supposed to go to a few homes! I wish we could do more. Guys, it's like you're voting 10-20 times! And legally!! It's votes that normally wouldn't get out there. And they're mostly going to be conservative. And guess what, the polls are NOT counting people in nursing homes! Please call as many nursing homes in your area and get their votes out there, especially if you're in the swing states. All we hear about is the youth vote and the minority vote, as if that's all there is. OK, OK, if you don't have time to do this. I also called several people and had them call their whole family, especially the elderly ones. Out of 4 calls, I found 10 Republicans that just were NOT going to vote! Either because they didn't like either one or the polls said BO was going to win so why bother. Aargh! They have since called us back and told us they were going. SO, try the nursing homes but at least make all the calls you can to family and friends. Let them know it's too crucial this time not to vote for someone. Vote against! That's the tack I'm taking. Then the most important part - contact all the elderly members of your family, grandfather, aunt's parents, Veterans, for God's sake, etc. and make sure they have a way to get to the polls or absentee vote. Please let me know what you think about this and do it ! It looks like it's working for us down here. Listen, I've never done anything politically, I have never been motivated in this way in my life so help me do this. Remember, you want to vote early and often? - you will be! Legally!
