It ain’t over, till it’s over…
The news looks good. As of today, Obama has a 10 point lead over McCain in most of the major national polls.
But, as the joke goes, we haven’t heard the fat lady sing.
Each day we hear more and more nasty, low and obnoxious attacks from the desperate McCain-Palin camp. Their focus is on innuendo and creating FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt), and in that area, my friends, they are by far way ahead.
We are continuing to provide support wherever we can. We’ve shipped signs to OH, MO and VA, and we’re hoping to help our friends in FL and NC soon. We won’t give up until the polls close on November 4th and we know that we’ve made a difference.
Please continue to support us. Monetary donations are welcome, as are people on the ground in swing states who can join the cause. We’ll continue to post links to resources, the latest poll numbers and other relevant information.
Let’s keep up the fight–you are the difference.
October 6th update:
The response to the Betty Brigades has been incredible!
Not only do we have people mobilized in Ohio, but in Missouri, too, and we have requests coming in from Florida and Virginia, as well.
We’d love to help and we are committed to keep helping, but all of these materials cost money. If you support our cause and could help us with a donation, we would be much obliged. 100% of your donation goes towards buying (and shipping) Obama/Biden signs and buttons for swing states.
We’re not asking for a lot of money. If you can donate $50, that would be great. A donation of $100 would be wonderful, but even $25 would be helpful (Considering what Congress just approved to bail out Wall Street, that’s an incredibly tiny amount and we promise not a penny will go to anyone in any way connected to the subprime mortgage mess).
Your Make a Difference Team
We Want to Make a Difference
Who are we and why are we here?
We are a group of men and women who want our voices to be heard in this presidential election.
We are frustrated by much of the misinformation and spin that’s being put forward by and for the Republican candidates.
We believe that women vote with their heads and their hearts for the best candidate regardless of gender or race, and we believe that in this election that is Obama and Biden.
Many of us live in blue states. We no longer want to talk to ourselves. We want to do more than just read and forward postings and email about what’s wrong with McCain and Palin. We’re frustrated and we want to do something about it.
We want to help the people who are campaigning on the ground in the states that are still up for grabs. We know there are people out there who need resources, ideas, and money and that’s where we can find a way to make a difference.
Looking around us, we have a lot of creative firepower to harness. We have access to smart, creative and internet savvy people who want to make a difference. We’ve created this site to bring together the people who want to help with those who need it. We will provide information and links on voter registration sites, voter drives, fundraisers, phonebanks, useful articles, and more.
We are the future and we are here to make a difference. Join us.
