Sounding off here is far from enough. Writing letters asking someone to vote for or against a Bill is better. Writing a check is great for those who can, but so is volunteering to help on the campaign. That will be remembered.

 

Every campaign needs help. If you have never volunteered before you might be surprised at how much help they can use. It might be walking an area to put out door hangers or it might be knocking and talking to people. If you have the ability, it might be sitting in a campaign office and making telephone calls urging people to vote for your candidate. It could also be just helping by moving paper or sorting materials. It could be manning a booth at an event. It could be distributing yard signs. When I was a young one, living in a rural area, I distributed yard signs and literature via horseback.

 
You can get your whole family involved. Responsible children are often welcome in local races. The fact is, what you do - or don't do - can make a difference.
 
So are you going to do more or just gripe in a forum?

I put a 6x4 for Ives out in my backyard since it backs up to a lot of open park / playground.   (no cleaning a firearm on my patio table probably isn't a great idea) 

Maybe I need to contact the local, I do have (little) sign but that's it so far.   I just don't know where all these Democrats are coming from in DuPage, like feeding squirrels.

Here is the problem.

Most conservative 2A freedom loving American’s work for a living. Little time.

Those on the government dole have much more time to make sure they continue to get their “freebies” from the producers.

Pro gun candidates sound nice. Don't think I have any of those in my AO. We have the ones that claim to be pro Second Amendment when they need votes and then jump on board with every anti gun bill that comes along. Closet Democrats with Rs in front of their names mostly.

Glad you guys are helping out the good ones though. I know some parts of this state actually resemble real America were people like that actually have a chance of winning. Enjoy it.

Nothing motivates people more then the possibility of loosing the free lunch....

 I just don't know where all these Democrats are coming from in DuPage, like feeding squirrels.

You noticed too? My immediate neighborhood is fine, but once I get half way through Carol Stream heading east it's all blue.

Sadly it started before this year. Based on yard signs it seems to go by blocks which I found interesting. And there are a few houses with both Dem and Rep yard signs.

I suspect it's a lot of people moving out from Cook and Chicago pushing the older Dupage Rs farther out or away which isnt good for the future. Who would have expected them to go Dem for president the last 2 elections?

Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to buy cars... ~unknown

 

The problem is not guns! It's hearts without God, homes without discipline, schools without prayer, and courts without justice. ~unknown

 

"A general dissolution of the principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy.

While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but once they lose their virtue, they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader." ~ Samuel Adams 1779 to James Warren

 

Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters. ~Daniel Webster

 

How much can you put in your signature before it becomes too long??
