MM Says: Colorado Get Up!! Get Out the Vote in Colorado (email/info)
Dear Friends,
Forget the laundry. Let the dirty dishes pile up in the sink. Break out the TV dinners and tell the kids to do their own homework.

My friends, I need you to put your daily routine on hold for the next 200 hours.

The great grassroots geniuses at MoveOn PAC need 1,157 more volunteers in the next 24 hours to mobilize voters in the battleground neighborhoods they're targeting in Colorado Springs and other key areas. So pick up the phone and call the MoveOn PAC office closest to you. Right now. (Stop reading this -- I mean it, call right now!)

Aurora: 303-418-4260
Denver: 303-893-2378
Lakewood: 303-985-0634
Boulder: (303) 440-5104
Ft. Collins: 970-223-9178


Or, sign up on MoveOn PAC's website and a local staffer will call you within 24 hours to get you started:

You live in a swing state, so you really can't leave this to anyone else. I don't want to wake up on Nov. 3 and see Colorado colored red. And I know YOU would rather eat wet socks than watch Peter Jennings talk about how the Republicans out-hustled us and out-smarted us on Election Day.

You've only got to help for the next 7 days. That's it: no long commitment. No hidden fees. You can cancel at any time, and these five albums are yours to keep, free of charge. But I need you to act now -- operators are standing by.

Aurora: 303-418-4260
Denver: 303-893-2378
Lakewood: 303-985-0634
Boulder: (303) 440-5104
Ft. Collins: 970-223-9178


I know you're tired of hearing this. Between ACT, MoveOn, the Kerry Campaign, Manicurists for Democracy, you must have been asked 100 times. What I want to know is, what are you waiting for? A personal appeal from Ben Affleck? A free tote bag? Jump in! Your future depends on it. Your kids' future. Even your hamster's. They're all counting on you. And all you have to do is talk to some of your neighbors about why George Bush gives you heartburn, and how things could be different.

MoveOn PAC has a great plan to win this -- by getting your non-voting neighbors to the polls. There are 92 million non-voters in this country, and they might actually vote if they get a visit from a neighbor in the next week. Some of your neighbors might hate Bush but still be sitting on the fence about Kerry (you can usually tell by their awkward gait). You may not be a big Kerry fan either. That's OK. The Leave No Voter Behind program isn't really about asking people to vote for Kerry -- it's about asking them to join with millions of ordinary Americans to change the direction of this country. And the first step is to return George Bush to Connecticut -- er, Texas. So sign up!

An hour a night is a start. A full day this weekend is even better. But why go halfway? Skip work or school next Tuesday. Play hooky for Kerry. What are you going to remember in 10 years? The memo you rewrote for LuAnn in accounting? The lecture you slept through on high modernism? Or the way it felt watching the returns come in on Tuesday night, knowing that our national nightmare is coming to a close and you helped put us over the top. Take it from me: the dishes can wait.

Yours,

Michael Moore
