So don't hurt me :) I am posting here because:

1) A lot of folk may remember who I am and what my history is on e-voting issues.

2) What I am now doing is tangentially related given the 2012 elections coming up.

I am not asking for letters on the voting issue, but your stories and how the economy is hurting you and your loved ones. I am looking for your stories.

I have posted elsewhere that Occupy Greensboro intends to send a delegation to President Obama when he comes to town tonight. The delegation will bear YOUR letters expressing YOUR concerns and YOUR stories. We are offering to act as the messengers for YOUR message. I am prepared to stand outside his hotel all night to ask for five minutes of his time to personally deliver your messages.

I am getting lots of people telling me I am dreaming if I think he'll actually meet with me. Others tell me I will be arrested.

If so, so be it.

But I NEED your letters. I'll stand in the cold, all night and risk arrest, you know, the hard work. Can I impose on some of you to take a few minutes to write a 1-2 page letter and send it to me to print out?

If so, send it to

You can read our open letter at

Those of you who remember me from the days of fighting Diebold know that I am, if nothing else, highly tenacious.

Thanks for your time!

David Allen (Not Skinner, the other one)

P.S. Deadline is 7:00PM EST
