My wife and I spent this weekend knocking on the doors of 85 of our neighbors, encouraging them to support Barack Obama. Mostly, people didn't answer their doos, and we left literature about Obama positions. Some of those answering the doors had not made up thir minds. We encountered more Obama supporters than McCain supporters -- IN A TRADITIONALLY REPUBLICAN COMMUNITY!
This past week at the Republican convention, John McCain and his surrogates attacked Barack Obama and mocked the power of community organizing. They sneered at the idea that people like you can play a crucial role in turning this country around.
The Republicans just don't get it. Our movement was built by ordinary people working together in their communities -- and that's how we're going to win on Election Day.
There is a new tool at the Obama website called NEIGHBOR TO NEIGHBOR that makes it easier than ever to connect with potential supporters in your community. It allows you to reach out to your fellow voters by making phone calls or knocking on doors -- the choice is yours.
