I can't hold this back any longer.

I've been feeling really good today (something that doesn't happen often). For the first time ever I registered 31 new American citizens to vote! Of this group, I had 2 DTS, and one "R". The rest had a "D" in the party affiliation box. Was really thrilled to see so many 'D" voters. Been thinking about it all day. New American citizens can soon vote. What an awesome feeling! Unfortunately, I'm not allowed to say things like, "What did ya think about Bernie in the debate the other night?" A big no-no. Wearing buttons were not allowed either. Understandable.

I hope more people can register people to vote. I was thinking about the repuke suppression tactics and thought about a large turnout. We need it to overcome the repuke vote cheating. Makes me pissed just thinking about it.

Anyway. REGISTER TO VOTE!!! And ask your county voter registrar's office if you can become an agent to register people. It'll leave you with a good feeling.

2. We're on a college campus tabling for Bernie

once a week and we register voters as well. Since we're tabling specifically for Bernie and our demographics are skewed toward millennials, our ratios would naturally be different but ours has been 3-1 DTS to Democratic Party registrations. Just an interesting tidbit in terms of comparison.

9. I need to talk to you

I want to incorporate that into my Bernie work.

I'm going to bed now. Have a flyering at a farmer's market early tomorrow. I'll pm you tomorrow.

You're awesome!

3. I do that twice a year

after naturalization ceremonies. A powerful feeling to see the smiles on the faces of new citizens. And a wonderful feeling to see them line up to have their photos taken with our cardboard Obama. Getting them registered is the best I can do. They have already done the hard work of citizenship.

5. I had a gentleman ask me about which party I thought was better.

But I'm not allowed to say. I have to be neutral. I wanted to weasel around the question but didn't know how at the time. But he did check Dem box. Good choice dude.

7. Too bad Mariota aged out,

but we're still Ducks fans, too. One of my daughters went to law school there.
