Twelve And A Wake Up


We are now officially less than two weeks away from election day and we need to keep up the energy.  This is no time to give up, this is no time to get complacent.  I know a lot of you out there must be getting tired.  I know a lot of you who have been a part of this election since it began way back in the cold days of February of last year are wishing for this to finally be over.

Believe me, I’m with you.  I just can’t wait until I can sleep again.

But you also have to think, we’ve come this far, and now we just need to push for a little bit longer.  Now, in these last two weeks, is when we have to push harder than we have ever before.  Now is when the Republicans are depending on us to just coast to election day.  Now is when they are planning on sneaking up on us and winning this election out of nowhere.  Thus now is when we must give our last best effort.

Find your local Obama field office, volunteer, give some change, make phone calls and knock on doors.  If you can vote early, go vote early so that on election day you can donate your precious time.  Right now I know that three of us here at CFLF will be doing volunteer work on election day; myself, DrGail, and Kathy.

Remember, this is our chance to chart a new course for this country, one that finally takes us out of the tail spin that Republican orthodoxy has put us in over the past years.  But it’s not going to happen unless you work for it.  Think about what it will feel like listening to Barack Obama’s victory speech on the evening of November 4th, or when he gets sworn in as President of the United States on January 20th.  Look at your children’s faces, and recognize that you are doing this for them, that you are doing what you can to secure a better world for their future.

Do whatever it takes to dig up those last reserves of energy you have left in the tank.

These are your marching orders.  Now get to work!
