Hi Folks,

We had a jam-packed weekend, precinct walks, absentee calling, sign waving
& Mitt Romney rally in Kissimmee.

Fri:  We thought we cancelled our sign wave on Friday, BUT,  the die hards
showed up dressed for the storm, so we had our Romney/Ryan hurricane
rally!!!  celebrated at Norman's afterward!

Sat:  We met early on Sat.  for early voting, (M.I. courthouse) some
stayed at there  all day, some went to our "corner" to rally.  The
courthouse duty was tough!  We did not have enough sign wavers &  Obama's
community & union organizers "overwhelmed" the polling site.
Our few members & volunteers remained calm & stayed till the polls
closed....abusive language used by Obama's supporters.
Some  of us headed to the Romney rally in Kissimmee ...10,000 people!
...waiting for the traffic to clear we "tailgated" with a George Bush look
alike, then headed for Cuban food.

Sun. Sign wave at M. I. Courthouse & "corner"....1:30pm, buses arrive at
courthouse with Obama supporters from local churches.  They overwhelm the
lobby again!  Organizers set up a welcoming table & chairs, across the
street from the courthouse, with donuts & coffee.
The "organizers" pass out signs & walk to where we have been standing for
5 hours.
Some of them have signs "nurses for Obama"...others "Forward"
signs....They become verbally abusive, trying to intimidate us.  We did
not have enough people stay & wave signs!

THIS WEEK:    Go to an early polling site with a sign!  Most important
MORNING. ( people voting before work).   NOON    &  EARLY EVENING
Polls:     Weekdays:   8:00 AM to 6:00 PM
              Weekends:   8:00 AM. To 4:00 PM
