Senior Kossacks might consider writing letters to the editor to newspapers in Florida.

For example:

I am a senior living in the state of (whatever).  I support President Obama because Medicare and Social Security are not only important programs for me, but also for my children and grandchildren.  

President Obama has clear vision and a steady hand on the economy and with national defense. He is consistent. Nothing is worse for the economy than uncertainty and inconsistency. Nothing is more threatening to our national security than a lack of vision, lack of compassion, lack of common courtesy, and lack of a steady hand in moving forward in today's complex world. With President Obama, we have made allies of our friends, and earned the respect of those who would be our enemies.

Green jobs, affordable health care, and affordable access to higher education, working towards the Dream Act, steady progress with the economy and national security.  Let's vote for four more years.

Many letters will be printed either in print or online.  Those which don't get printed will be read by editors who need a reality check.  

Flood Florida, Arizona, Ohio, Colorado, Virginia, North Carolina, Iowa, Wisconsin, Nevada with your letters to editors of as many newspapers as you can.  Do it now because newspapers have deadlines and the election is upon us.

Good newspapers US to get a list of papers.  Click on the websites for the papers of your
choice and follow their guidelines for letters to the editor.

If you aren't a senior, alter your letter for whatever you are.  A coordinated letter writing campaign can be effective.  And there are no better writers in America than those who write for KOS.

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.

    I am a senior living in Alaska.  I support President Obama because Medicare and Social Security are not only important programs for me, but also for my children and grandchildren.
