As deeply satisfying as it is for all of us unpaid consultants to blog hourly advice to the John Kerry campaign, talk is cheap, even with a DSL line, and action speaks louder than words. Weve got 52 days of action left to us before the election.

I know that many, perhaps most, Kosa Nostrans are active at some level in privatizing George Bush and trying to at least reduce the margin in the House and Senate between Dems and the GOP. Quite a number of us actually work as volunteers or for pay on some campaign. Weve donated money to candidates, written letters to editors and reporters, added to the body count at rallies and otherwise done what suits our temperament to make a difference in what nearly everyone across the spectrum calls a watershed year. Some of us are planning trips to a swing state to help squeeze out a few more voters in those close contests.

Id like to make another suggestion. If you arent already doing so, during the next 52 days, work your precinct for a couple of hours each day.

If youre fortunate, you live in one of those precincts where the elected Democratic apparatus is motivated and organized. So all you need to do is sign up and join the other soldiers in the door-to-door, phone-to-phone effort to get out the vote. If youre like a lot of Americans, however, you live in a precinct where nobody serves as party committeeman or committeewoman, and there arent even token attempts underway to cajole the party faithful to cast their ballot. That means youve got your work cut out for you.
