    If you have extra time, or perhaps think your limited time might be better served helping instead of participating in discussions here, you can make phone calls for the Romney-Ryan team.

    The system is sophisticated. You initiate a call on-line. Your phone is called, and a system caller-id is displayed, not yours. There are suggested scripts and tutorials.

    If you want more specifics, some of you know where to find it, others can message me here and I will give you the information. (I won't respond to any obvious Obama supporters.) You can share this with friends and significantly magnify the grassroots support.

    This is just a heads-up. I don't intend to participate in this thread in any political discussions, etc.

    USE YOUR TIME TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

    I will be doing everything I can and now with greater enthusiasm. Ryan is a fantastic choice.

    I have always been enthusiastic, but this provides a tremendous focus and motivation. In quickly scanning the discussions here, I hope others will see what a waste of time they are and get actively involved in a much more satisfying and beneficial way.

    I was sort of indifferent about Paul Ryan until this morning's announcement, but I think I am liking the idea more and more by the minute. Definitely think he will prove a solid pick, whether it will be enough to win remains to be seen. If a "Comeback Team" is truly possible, this ROMNEY/RYAN combo seems as good a shot as any.

    Notice that I said 'greater' enthusiasm. Now, lets make it happen! I'm thrilled.

    When you're making your calls, don't forget to mention that Romney/Ryan promise to permanently establish those filthy gays as second-class citizens by amending the Constitution to invalidate their marriages and prevent civil unions.
    That should get the Republican bigots to open their check books for you.

    Hahahahaha !

    Yeh, the Ryan budget plan, to make grandma get off her lazy ass, and get a job, will go over really big with the older voters, who are the biggest voting bloc in the country.

    You're SHITTING US RIGHT ??? LOL !!! The two above you are hopeless but I surely thought you weren't quite so easily fooled.



    In the words of your Gay republican conservative partner Mchael Savage>>

    “This is the end of the Romney campaign,” says Michael Savage. “As good a man as he is, Ryan will be portrayed by the Marxists as another rich white male who wants to ruin the environment, destroy Medicaid and Social Security and give tax breaks to the very rich. It’s all over.


    “The Romney schmucks are so out of touch with reality they do not see how they are being portrayed and perceived" and “The Romney insiders detest conservatives and are trying to appease this core base with Ryan. Too little, too late.”


    From the NYT, “Congressman Paul Ryan is best known as the author of a budget so radical The New York Times called it ‘the most extreme budget plan passed by a House of Congress in modern times.’ With Mitt Romney’s support, Ryan would end Medicare as we know it and slash the investments we need to keep our economy growing – all while cutting taxes for those at the very top.”

    from another source: “Ryan, like Romney, proposed an additional $250,000 tax cut for millionaires and deep cuts in education from Head Start to college aid. His plan also would end Medicare as we know it by turning it into a voucher system, shifting thousands of dollars in health care costs to seniors.”


    Notice too that your SoCal / Old Geezer Conservatposse has shrunk to the last few desparate and willfully blind partisans

    I agree. If the democrats are so sure about Obama being ahead in all of thier polls they watch daily then why are they worried. Romney went for the home run. Yet to be seen how the American people who dont know Ryan will judge him. All I can tell you is people dont even run against him here in Wisconsin, a supposed blue state the libs say. If he's so bad why does grandma keep voting him back to congress? Because they love the guy

    So maybe Ryan can actually help deliver Wisconsin in November? That would definitely be a shocker considering how big Obama carried state in '08.

    With the Ryan pick Obama has no shot here in Wisconsin. I said that after Scott Walker was re-elected Governor. Wisconsin was the unions hill to die on and they did. Now Wisconsin will help carry Romney to the White House. Along with our great neighbors Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, and fingers crossed Ohio and Michigan. Those I cant call yet

    Too bad that Obama carried Ryan's district in 2008.

    Regarding the general election, it sounds like you have some major rose-colored glasses on, considering Romney is losing in virtually every swing state -- and that was before he chose a running mate who wants to eliminate Medicare.

    Part of the Democratic lie. That will be thoroughly debunked. Obamacare is already raping Medicare, but when that law is repealed, that will be corrected.

    cool system. Replaces/ expands our Party central phone bank and outsourced subcontractors with groupsourcing.

    Call centres are an expensive part of campaigns.

    Nothing tops the value of a person who proves reliable at canvassing an area.

    Just contact the campaign and volunteer canvass your neighborhood.

    especially if your candidate is not the front-runner, the best thing you can do is tell people why YOU are voting for him. Listen to whatever they say (good or bad). Pick any ONE criticism that you shre or shared and talk about THAT.

    Find a point of agreement and restate why you support your candidate."shared values - would decide as you would in his place)


    short conversations are best.

    Longer conversatons are better in small gatherings of people.

    The larger the gathering, the greater the chance you can get a rep to come from the campaign ( or the candidate if s/he can swing it). Those are good to recuit campaign workers.

    Everything is an exercise in Best Use of the Candidate's Time for Maximum Effect.)

    My state, California, is the same in that it will go Democratic. Unless working for a Congressional race, local work is a waste of time. That's why phone volunteering is a good option.

    Yes it is. Many republicans and conservative who feel they are helpless living in a democratic state are wrong. supporting local candidates who can win are very important. Supporting national candidate are just as important

    I have already persuaded some friends in the US to sign up for Romney/Ryan home calling. They may happen to wander from the script a little, from time to time...

    Now that I'm back in Ohio for some unfortunate reasons, I can have an effect and will do everything I can for the team. I don't know any Democrats around here, but will do my part to see that we get as many Republicans to the polls as possible.
