I Donated $20 At The Cincinnati Obama HQ—The Work Of Freedom Is Up To Each Of Us
This evening I went to the Obama headquarters in Cincinnati and made a $20 donation.
Included with this post is a picture of the Cincinnati Obama office. There were maybe 10 people making calls. I thought that was pretty good for a Wednesday night in August.
While I intend to vote for Green candidate Jill Stein for President in my non-swing state of Texas, the folks in this Obama office are decent people who are doing the work of freedom and who merit support.
And at least folks in Ohio are calling people close to home. In Texas Democrats are being asked to call over for the country for Obama while extremist Ted Cruz marches on the U.S. Senate.
I understand Texas is likely a Republican state in 2012. But how long will we be asked to hand our future over to crazies without even a fight? When do we begin to build the foundation of something hopeful in Texas?
In any case, the work of freedom and progress is up to each of us. We each need to take steps to move society in the direction we hope to see it go.
