Floor Space in Manchester, NH for HARDCORE ActivistsSubmitted by Sovereign Curtis on Tue, 12/27/2011 - 17:13
In Oct 2007 I quit my job, sold a bunch of crap and drove north with no delay. I'd caught wind of Operation Live Free or Die and I was sold! Having spent the last few years in door to door then business to business sales, I felt I MUST go knock NH doors on Dr Paul's behalf. I did so from Nov 10 to Jan 7, six days a week, 10 hours a day. In that time many Porcupines gave me a couch or floor to stay on, so I didn't have to waste my money on a hotel room.
So I'm trying to pay that back.
What we've got: Copious amounts of (carpeted) floor space in the middle of Manchester, NH.
We can probably house 6-10 people w/ air mattresses (your air mattress, I'm only providing a place to put it)
Included: Heat, hot water, shower/toilet, electricity (you're on your own for internet), MAYBE meals if you chip-in on groceries.
Requirements: You must be MOTIVATED. I don't want to see you in my apartment unless you're going to sleep or waking up.
Seriously, I can't tell you how upset I was back in late 2007 when a bunch of people showed up at the very last minute and treated the amazing accommodations as a vacation spot. There I was almost two months deep into knocking doors almost every day, and these jerks show up at the last minute and proceed to PARTY. I was practically reduced to baby-sitting, trying to get people out of the door in the morning, hearing all kinds of BULLSHIT excuses how someone had a head-ache (shouldn't have stayed up drinking til 3am, then...) and couldn't go out to work that day. SO, the ideal candidate(s) would be self-motivated, and not the type to wait around for instructions, or need to have their hand held...
Now don't get me wrong: I like to party. But I'm not offering a crash space for itinerant partiers. I'm offering space for people who want to expend their time, labor, resources and energy BUSTING ASS to help Dr Paul get the WIN in NH. There will be partying opportunities, but only for the people who WORK HARD, FIRST. And seriously, we know how to party so it will be worth it, IF YOU EARN IT.
Common space is a smoke friendly environment, with two needy cats, so no allergies please.
If you can't read this far and you've got allergies thats YOUR tough luck, not mine.
The cats are permanent members of this apartment, and they've got a pack a day habit :p
If you meet the above qualifications, don't be surprised if you determine that this is THE Liberty Mecca.
You won't want to leave, and we probably won't want to let you go. You're going to love it up here.
We're hoping to hear from you. Facebook is probably the best method.

PS Here is an awesome pic from my time campaigning in 2007/2008. It was totally unplanned, as we (Tennyson McCalla and I) just went to the Concord HQ on a SUNDAY so I could re-up on campaign literature and such (that stack under my arm was about a ten day supply). Lucky for us RP was there and this pic happened.
Come here, kick ass, and maybe you can get lucky and get yourself such an awesome pic.
PPS It gets cold up here, so bring lots of warm layers (stay away from cotton if you plan to be walking around outside all day)
