New Yorker? Come to Scranton!

Rosa in New York ( sent the following urgent message about New Yorkers -- many of them Demoocrats -- coming to Scranton and other places to canvass neighbors for John McCain and Sarah Palin. The people are angry at the thoroughly corrupt process Obama/Axelrod used to steal the Primary Election Process from Sen. Clinton.

The NYC Area Democrats For McCain had a very successful canvassing effort in Scranton, Pennsylvania over this past weekend. And people of color were well-represented in the crew.

Our conclusion is that there are many Democrats in Scranton who could be persuaded to vote for John McCain.

Barack Obama must be defeated now, rather than later. And, we will not be able to defeat Obama by just hoping that others will do the job, by hanging out mainly in the blogosphere talking to other NObama folks, by just giving up... Here are three recommended actions that you should do over the next three weeks to ensure that Obama is defeated now, rather than later.

1. Canvass in Scranton, PA (door-to-door, or where people congregate) ... we need 50 people on each weekend day to get FREE transportation from the McCain campaign
2. Phone-banking to swing states (from your own fellow Democrats)...see instructions below
3. Financial support (please, please help us to cover costs of flyers) ... click here for PayPal
