New York, NYUSA
June 5, 2008
Born within 2 miles of Jefferson's and Madison's homes, I fashion myself an informed citizen of America, one of history's great achievements. Many countries hoped & expected America to fail. Not perfect, we, the Demos, persist and progress!
Justice; liberty; freedoms of religion, speech, press; freedoms to assemble peaceably and redress the government; the pursuit of happiness, the rule of law, majority rule coupled with minority defense against the tyranny of any majority.
I allow all candidates an opportunity to earn my vote, but, I generally lean to the left of center. As is the case for individuals, ALL political parties have the capacity for good or evil. Each must be weighted & re-weighed based on their merits.
A NYC resident on the Obama National Call Team, I helped GOTV in TX,PA,VA,NM, and RI; In Philly, worked weekends, and on primary day was on city hall steps, from morning 'til polls closed, persuading voters. We fired up NYC, and defeated George III.
Why Join Voterbook (formerly ObamaNYC): 1.) Thomas Jefferson would have joined: It's of the people, by the people, and for the people. 2.) It's a GREAT place to acquire local NYC campaign information. 3.) Great resource on NYC wide political candidates, and aid to help you Get The Vote Out in your specific NYC community. 4.) Great aid in registering voters 5.) Great resource to help you Get The Vote Out in national elections, especially in battleground/swing states, e.g., OH, VA, PA, FL, NM, NV, NH, and MI. 6.) You will be encouraged, and encourage others! 7.) New Yorkers should not take anything for granted.
