Canvassing is Good for You!

I just got back from my first experience going door to door. I am in Oregon, and our primary isn't until late May, so we are still working hard out here. My meetup group gathered for coffee, talked about Ron Paul for about an hour, then headed out in pairs to cover 5 different areas of our town. I hit my precint with a wonderful older gentleman, Byron, and we went to around 60 or so houses. Everyone was really polite, even the ones who were not interested in Ron Paul information. Today was a beautiful day here in Southern Oregon, and my podometer counted 3,060 steps, that equals about 1.5 miles. I walked 3,060 steps for Ron Paul today!!! Or should I say 3,060 steps for Freedom and Liberty!!!
It felt AWESOME!

We hit some of Dr. Paul's hometown precincts today afoot and telephone canvassed after the weather got bad. This is where the rubber (shoe leather) meets the road!

Give us clear vision, that we may know where to stand and what to stand for - because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.

Good luck

'You are doing very well and I wish I could help you with the canvassing.

The Dr.'s Rx

I think canvassing is all part of the Dr. Ron Paul Health Plan:

- You get plenty of aerobic exercise (walking is good for you!)
- Build muscle strength (carrying around all those slim jims and such)
- Bring water along to keep hydrated!
- Breathe some fresh air, get some Vitamin D from the sunshine
- Interact with real human beings (get away from the screen)
- Help restore our country to its original health and vitality!

A perfect prescription for the people and our nation. :)

Thanks, inspiring

I still haven't gone door to door yet with the intention of conversation but I have been passing out lots of slim jims and tomorrow I am adding a personal message with my new order of free enterprise slim jims. I live in Texas and early voting for us starts on Tuesday so I am providing the 1000 residents of my apartment community with a google map to the closest voting location and the hours of operation. On the reverse side is my final sales pitch for Ron Paul, including McCain's inelectability in the general election and the inevitable end to the war in Iraq in 2009. Now is the time to vote on principle. Now is the time to vote on the issues. This election is far from over : )

good for you!

Planning to wear pedometer too, starting this week on about 250 homes here in Ohio neighborhood. Praying for good weather and some weight loss too :-)
