The politics we believe in starts not with expensive TV ads or extravaganzas, but with you — with people organizing block-by-block, talking to neighbors, co-workers and friends.
And that kind of campaign takes time to build. So even though the race may not reach full speed for a year or more, the work of laying the foundation for our campaign must start today.
Will You Help Get This Campaign Started?
Posted by Jeremy Bird, Obama for America National Field Director on April 05 2011
Yesterday, we launched the campaign to re-elect Barack Obama as President of the United States. I'm here in Chicago, where there are just a few of us getting things set up – but thanks to the positive online responses and infectious energy from the announcement, this mostly-vacant office is clicking on all cylinders. Across the country, via Facebook, Twitter, email, over phones and in person, supporters are coming together to tell the President and their friends and neighbors, “I’m in.”
Will you join them?
As Field Director, I’m charged with helping to build and manage the campaign’s online and offline field program. From yesterday through November 6, 2012, the driving force behind this campaign is the belief that ordinary people, working together, have the power to change their communities and, ultimately, the country.
The first step is to ask supporters if they’re “in.” As the campaign rolls on, staff and volunteers will conduct one-on-one meetings to hear what people think about the President, where we are as a country, and what they want from this campaign. In fact, I already started calling volunteers yesterday.
It’s a long journey that starts small and will build over time.
But the first step is to let us know that you’re in for 2012. Then, will you tell us why?
About Us: As we learned and saw what happened in Wisconsin: corporate, right-wing politicians like Governor Rick Scott are waging all out war on the middle class in our state. Since Scott took office, Florida has lost over 300,000 jobs, and he’s done everything he can to establish a culture of corruption and cronyism since day one. Rick Scott needs to be stopped before the damage he causes becomes irreversible to our state. Simply put, the future of Florida is on the line – and that’s why we need your help. I hope you’ll join us online and get involved today!
Gov. Rick Scott's policies could benefit his family's $62M investment

ST. PETERSBURG TIMES
If you have a $62 million investment, representing the biggest single chunk of your $218 million in wealth, and you put it in a trust under your wife's name, does that mean you're no longer involved in the company?
Florida Gov. Rick Scott says it does.
Don't Forget, Rick Scott Knows Fraud!
