this is it. Tuesday's the big day.
I hope you've given thorough consideration into whose hands you're planning to
entrust this country for the next four years and I hope your answer is the same
as mine... Barack Obama.
A landslide for Senator Obama seems all but inevitable but you still
have to vote! The Republican Party is using every trick in the book
to maintain control and it's clear the touch-screen voting machines are not 100%
trustworthy. The only answer is to vote in such overwhelming numbers that any
such digital chicanery is obvious. If you're in a battleground state be sure
and take along a friend a two.
If you experience problems while voting contact your local media or call the
voter protection hotline at 1-877-US-4-OBAMA (1-877-874-6226).

phone calls that will help
ensure a heavy democratic turnout.

from the bottom-up.
We can choose to invest in health-care for our
families, and education for our kids, and renewable
for our future.
We can choose hope over fear, unity
over division, the promise of change over the power
of the status quo.
We can come together as one nation,
and one people, and once more choose our better
That’s what’s at stake. That’s
what we’re fighting for. And if in this last
week, you will knock on some doors for me, and
make some calls for me, and talk to your neighbors,
and convince your friends; if you will stand with
me, and fight with me, and give me your vote, then
I promise you this – we will not just win
this state, we will not just win this election,
but together, we will change this country and we
