    Default Any political activists?

    I know we have a lot of armchair politicians here, but I'm curious ; is anyone on the forums actually going out to do anything in support of the upcoming elections?

    And, if so, what?

    Personally, I'm working on a small team with CalVoter, helping register Californians to vote (Democrat). So far my group alone has flipped several districts blue, and it looks like we've got a pretty damn solid chance at getting/keeping Schwarzenegger's corporate cronies out of office.

    I live in Indiana, I would go out and support a candidate in the midterm election if there was one here that I could support with time and effort. I have done some moderate political activism in the presidential election, but right now I'm more concerned with trying to get the job I want in the military so I can start paying off debt.

    Actively supporting a candidate within a political system that one views as hopelessly dysfunctional is senseless.

    which is why one of the first things that needs to chage voting wise is the removal of the electoral collage.

    I canvassed for Ron Paul in 2007 in NYC. Canvassed for Chris Christie in Northern Jersey. Often travel around country. Was in Kentucky this winter campaigning for Rand Paul.

    Locally we have this group that stayed together from Ron Paul meetups. It is more like a club now. Most people just do their own shit like me. We have fundraisers sometimes whenever some one from liberty movement is running.

    Disagree unless you meant to follow it with "is retarded".

    It makes no sense to not try to change a system you find dysfunctional and a really effective way of doing that (aside from killing a bunch of people and putting in new people) is voting in people you agree with. So, unless you are actively taking people out of office you find cancerous to society, promoting a candidate is the next best thing you can do. Besides bitch at your computer about how fucked society is, obviously.

    As for me, I've been really busy with school but this summer I've made contact with a few political groups on campus that I plan to get involved with as soon as the semester starts which is when they start recruiting again.
