With about 5 weeks until voting time, politicians are still out there making their case. And more and more voters are starting to pay attention. So I was thinking, "besides filling in a bubble on the voter pamphlet for the best pro-2nd amendment politicians, what else can I do to make sure they get elected, and the gun-control politicians to loose?" Well, there are a couple things you can do! 1) Letters to the editor of your local paper. Just a few sentences, or a paragraph or two. Yes, people still read papers (and they often get published on-line as well). And the editorials are still one of the most read sections of a paper. Have you written your representative, or submitted written testimony, during our legislative pushes? It's about something like that. Just remember the adage "Catch more flies with honey than vinegar", and all that, when convincing people to vote your way. 2) Show up and support your candidate! Or show up and un-support your gun-control candidate . Give people a reason to vote for our guys, and not vote for the other guys. Politicians LOVE to hear public praise about them. Politicians HATE a negative spotlight highlighting something that could cause confrontation. Is a politician making an appearance in your area? Or a debate with a public Q/A afterwords? I'm sure some of the gun-control politicians are just eager to explain their relationship with donations and endorsements from out of state millionaires, and what the payback will be 3) And of course there is always donations, or volunteering time as well. Just to get things rolling, next post below is some public appearances from some politicians in the Oregon Senate race that could use our help to get elected so we can at least keep the Senate neutral when it comes to gun-control. With the governors office recent "friend of the court' filing to defend the NY SAFE act, it's our best line of defense!
