I didn’t blog about the last time I went out to work the phone bank, partly because it would be repetitive, and partly to not brag. But I am bringing it up again. Because EVERYONE needs to get out and put some time in, and maybe I can guilt trip someone into volunteering.
I know a lot of people aren’t real excited about about McCain, but we need to do everything we can to keep the most anti gun, socialist candidate in recent history, maybe in American history, out of the White House.
McCain isn’t my ideal Conservative candidate, either. Guess what: you aren’t going to agree with everything about a politician. In fact, there is only one person in the world I agree with on every issue. Myself. And some days I’m not completely sure about that.
I never got involved directly with a campaign before this year, but you can bet I will be doing more in the future. People say that if you don’t vote, you have no right to complain. Voting is really only the barest minimum. Get involved. Work some campaigns. Call politicians, and let them know how you feel.
So thank you to everyone who has spent some of their time volunteering, and if you haven’t, get out and spend some time (even if you have, more won’t hurt.) It’s a good chance to hang out with some other people who share your values, and you might even have some fun.
My fun story of the night: calling a house of registered Democrats who were voting McCain. It just warms my heart.
And, I might go shooting with the phone bank coordinator (after the election). He’s from New Jersey, and says he will be voting in WI, having lived here long enough, and is looking forward to having his vote actually count.
