I'm getting texts on my cell from Republicans...

all kinds of things I wanted to say but didn't. I did ask one to go away.

Were they allowed to get our numbers from tRump's robo texts?

I'm on every Democratic voter list imaginable. Those calls are coming to the landline.

2. My husband got a robo text today, on his FL number cell phone.

"This is President Trump. You have 1 WEEK LEFT to vote early. I need you to go out and VOTE! Find your polling location here >> https://vote.gop/30FL"

3. There are 10,000 numbers in each telephone exchange (the middle three numbers)

Using personal-level computerized SMS accounts, like Twilio.com, not bulk-rate type services, I could send a text message to every number in the exchange in just under 3 hours (rate limited to 1 per second) for about $75 or less.

If I wanted to do this a lot, I could get a bulk SMS account somewhere and send bulk (10,000's) of text messages at a higher rate for a lower cost per message.

So they don't really even need to have your number -- they can just walk the tree.

4. Yes but they are stinkin up my phone!

I'll take it as a sign they are desperate if they think they can sway this atheist with a list called Faith and Freedom voter guide.

I am impressed with the spelling however.

6. i was volunteer texting for When We All Vote....

...and we sent texts out to everyone.. when we were texted back by trumpers we just told them its a non partisan group to remind everyone to vote....but thats not entirely true as it had Michelle Obamas name in the canned text we sent out to a gazillion cell phones.

8. 90% of of the political ads I have gotten thus far have been from Republicans

They're wasting their money, of course. I just roll my eyes at the poorly photoshopped pictures of Claire McCaskill with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, roll my eyes, and toss them. Seriously, my cat could do a better job.
