Are you directly involved in a campaign this year?

Either as a candidate, staffer, or volunteer? How are you feeling about 2012?

I'm not really so far as I'm in a decidedly blue district - Maxine Waters is my Congresswoman.

2. I'm in Bachmann's 6th

and waiting for someone, anyone, to announce they are running against her. So far, no one has. Whoever it is, I'll work my butt off for them. (It won't be Tarryl Clark, she is in another district now.)

4. At today's caucus,...

...I was made recording secretary of our city committee. I'll do all I can to get as many D's elected up here in Maine and to get Marriage equality passed into law for once and for all.

PEACE!

7. You are correct---I did it for years. Right now

 

I'm too old and too tired.

I do make donations,though. Not large,but the best I can do.

We will persevere and we will win.

11. Something easy (and free) that we all can do for Obama no matter what district or state we are in!!

Hi All,

Regardless if you are in a Red or a Blue district or state, here is something effective that you can do to help President Obama get re-elected:

For those of you who remember (or can Google) what we did with Bill Simon in the 2002 Gubernatorial primary against Richard Riordan in California, I urge you (and urge you to encourage your Democratic & Green Party friends) to re-register as a Republican immediately and vote for Santorum in the 2012 GOP Republican Presidential Primary.

Before anyone replies with criticism, please allow me to explain two points:

1) The Democratic party is strong enough to nominate effective candidates without your vote. President Obama will certainly be nominated as our candidate no matter what you or your state as a whole does. Feel free to re-register as a Democrat or Green after the primary.

2) Santorum has no chance of beating President Obama in the November election, but Mitt Romney does. When true progressive activists switched parties in 2002 to vote for right-wing wacko Bill Simon in his GOP gubernatorial primary against moderate former Los Angeles mayor Richard Riordon, we ensured the victory of Democrat Gray Davis as Governor. All major polls predicted that Riordon would have beat Davis, but our activism saddled the California right wing with their wacko of choice as a candidate.

Please think about this, and if you understand and agree, please spread the word and re-register at least temporaily as a Republican if you are an eligible voter in a state that has not yet held its Republican Presidential Primary.

Thank you very much for your time.

13. I don't think it's quite that clear cut.

IMHO Romney is a weaker candidate because he is not disciplined, whereas Santorum is more disciplined and has the backing of his base. I think Romney is the weaker candidate, but really I just want the Republican Party to drag this out as long as possible. I do recall the CA 2002 gubernatorial Republican primary.

Welcome to DU!

14. We're pushing this in Tennessee...

Hopefully, Tennessee won't stick to its right wing roots forever...
