I know scary - A special Halloween request from author Stephen King:
Edited on Mon Oct-23-06 11:21 AM by helderheid
Dear MoveOn member,

If I know anything, I know scary. And giving this president and this out-of-control Congress two more years to screw up our future is downright terrifying. Thankfully, this national nightmare is one we can end withliterallya wake up call.

My friends at MoveOn.org Political Action are organizing a big round of national phone parties this weekend before Halloween, Oct. 28th & 29th. We'll be calling progressive folks in key districts who may not turn out unless they get a friendly reminder or two.

And since it's almost Halloween, we'll celebrate with an optional costume contest, some pumpkin carving (I'll be making a Jack-Abramoff-O'-Lantern) andof courseplenty of candy.

Please click the link below to R.S.V.P. for the nearest party, or to sign up to host your own:

If you're concerned about the future of this country, this is the time to get involved. The polls are telling us that this November is our best shot in over a decade to turn things around, and we've got to make the most of it.

You might wonder if these reminder calls to voters actually help. I did, too. It turns out MoveOn tested this whole Call for Change program on some early elections this year, and it produced the biggest increase in actual votes of any volunteer phone bank ever studied.

The failure in Iraq and the recent string of scandals have put a bunch of new districts into play. That means there are more voters to call than anyone planned, and every call we make at a party this weekend will reach a key voter who otherwise would have been missed.

Come November 8th, we're all going to kick ourselves if we ignored any close races and then lost the majority in Congress by a hair. These parties are our chance to make sure that doesn't happen.

Can you help end our national nightmare this Halloween weekend? Sign up to attend or host a local Call for Change Halloween party this weekend:

Thanks,

Stephen King

3. Anyone who lives in the Denver area can contact me
if they want to come down to the MoveOn office here and help out. This is both the most ambitious and most effect GOTV campaign that has ever been attempted and the more people that help the bigger and better it will become.

If anyone has any other questions on how to get involved or find an office near you (we have 42 new offices right now across the U.S.) feel free to contact me.

Remember there are only 15 days left till people vote, so don't sit on your hands get involved right NOW.
