As I put info out there asking people to like and share our page:
to try to cultivate some enthusiasm and motivate people to take some action for the upcoming midterm elections, I have received a lot of response, much of gratitude, support, encouragement and some from people disappointed with the democratic leadership that say their pocketbooks are closed, they won’t do anything to support them, and they are unlikely to vote.
Here is what I tell them in response:
The democrats have been disgustingly inept in handling this majority. I would particulary like to see a new majority leader in the senate to replace Harry Reid should the dems retain control.
However this election is NOT about the dems or the republicans, it IS about US and the future of our country, OUR future.
And as inept as the dems in congress may be, I feel certain our country will be MUCH worse off in republican control. It is for THAT reason that I am fighting to motivate people to get out the vote and help the dems retain control in the house and senate.
I am doing this for ‘us’ not ‘them’.
As of this writing we have had 653 people like our page. Many have donated and expressed their appreciation for the message of encouragement and delight in the notion that we ‘could’ defeat John Boehner among others.
My intention in focusing on defeating Boehner was not only to better our government but also because I believe it would be a great boost to morale for liberals and independents in our country. (You can read more about why we ‘could’ beat John Boehner this election on our page linked above and below).
If the republicans & crazies gain control it is because we are lazy and apathetic about our own future, it is certainly NOT because they deserve it, because in fact, they may take our weakened nation and completely destroy it. Pundits all insist that it would be low voter turnout for democratic candidates that would cause them to lose. In other words the republicans would win because of a voting minority and a non-voting majority.
The main way I have been reaching people is by writing blogs like this or by posting the following after my comments on various publications online:
Fight the Crazy!
Please ‘like’ and help us get the word out on this facebook page to defeat John Boehner and Hold the House!
Spread some enthusiasm! Pass it On. Thanks
Please act in your own best interest and vote and help us do whatever we can to help the democrats retain the majority in congress. If nothing else please like the page and share it with friends. A LOT of people doing a little can make a BIG difference. Thanks!
