    ...good point, but on the other, this is PRECISELY the kind of comment they hope you'll make so you'll chill people who may have taken action. Yes, we need to research the rules, but we can still show up in HUGE force while coloring inside the lines.

    This kind of nay-saying does nothing but help the right's cause.

    "Let's rally!"

    "Wait. You many run afoul of rules."

    "Yeah, you're right. Let's catch a movie."

    Don't beat their drum for them.

      naysaying.  I have worked on campaigns and will continue to do so, but I want the work to count for something and not get hung up on rules snag that suggests incompetence.  Detroit's current mayor was almost bounced from the race because he submitted his nominating petitions "too early."

      registration drive is so complicated as to be practically impossible unless you can afford huge bucks for a large team of expensive lawyers.  Oh, and the penalties for making even a single mistake involve decades in prison.  So why don't you put your ass where your mouth is, go down there, and start a GOTV drive yourself?  Oh, that's right, because you aren't willing to spend a good chunk of your life in prison because of some obscure rule that is so cleverly worded that even the best lawyers can't agree on what it means.

      You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.
