It's 10 minutes past 5pm central standard time on Labor Day weekend here in Chicago, and I just went online to volunteer for the Obama campaign.  I am now wondering how long will it be before the campaign calls me up.  I'd been thinking about helping in Chicago, but that's just not going to be enough anymore, Chicago & Illinois is locked for Obama,so that just won't be enough by half and why?

Because that Old, mean, Ill tempered, Unstable, unlikable, un-heathy, pandering FOOL just went and picked the most unqualified person ever, to be that close to the Presidency of The United States of America.  I mean nothing against Soccer Moms or any Mom but my God; She's going to put Putin in his place, Go to the Middle East and talk to the Saudis? Pathetic

SO now I have to get involved, It's about the economy, the state of this Country I've already served, and the kids I don't even have yet. And not just any level of involvement will do.  I am going to give till I hurt, then give more. I'm going to pound pavement until my legs break.  

If my country needs me to go out of state, and have me pay my own way, just point the direction. I don't care the cost, I'll pay more. I don't mind the burden, I'll lift more.  I don't mind the distance, I'll go further. I don't mind the job, I'll do it willingly.

McCain & palin and every crook,liar & lobbyist behind that team must be stopped. Stopped in their tracks cold.

Or should I go Indiana and work on behalf of the Libertarians? Either way it's time to go to the gym, I've got to get ready.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      don't do that libertarian thingie in Indiana.  Have fundraisers* in Chicago and send the money to Barack; do phone banking like judibrowni says.  Good luck and have fun!

      * This is so super easy.  Pick a bar, call them in advance to see if they'll give you the backroom (or whatever is available, space wise); pick a date and time (Friday happy hours work best but NOT before a 3-day weekend, best after a "payday" like the 15th or last day of the month), invite all your groups on and facebook and voila, you have hosted a fundraiser.

      At least in Chicago you don't have that stupid 3-drink MAXIMUM per person like you do in Seattle.
