    Hear, hear!  Unfortunately, it's true that we'll need to spend a lot of money to get the vote out against an operation that relies on low-cost cooperation.  I have heard that Mr. Mercer sings "God Bless America" and gets churches to recommend that the members vote for him.  These tactics work, and they resulted in him getting over 75,000 votes at 18 cents per vote in the primary for District 5.  I leave it to mathematicians and statisticians to do the math.  All I know is that I make calls three days a week, asking for money from strangers.  I love talking with people, but asking for money is hard.  See the blog entry on my facebook "Does It Hurt to Ask?"
