This election is so important that I decided that each day before the election I would make at least 100 phone calls to recruit volunteers for the most important races in the country.
It takes a lot of time, and honestly it helps that I'm retired. And a lot of nights I eat pizza for dinner by the phone! But considering the extreme corporate Republicans who'll be running Congress if we don't step up—I figure I can afford to eat dinner by the phone for a couple weeks.
MoveOn's online calling system makes it so easy that anyone can do it, and the MoveOn members are so nice and fun to talk to. All you need is a phone and an Internet connection.
So will you join me and sign up to make calls from home? You don't have to make 100 calls a day—every little bit helps. But if we're going to stop the Republican takeover, we need everyone to pitch in at least a little bit. Click here to sign up:
Thanks for all you do.

This is upsetting and outrageous and fundamentally anti-democratic. What's worse, it's part of a growing pattern of right-wing violence and intimidation, fueled by violent rhetoric from Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, Sharron Angle, and others.
Here's the thing, folks: we can't let this intimidate us or derail us (which is the intent, after all). Instead, let's work even harder over the next week to defeat the candidates who are stirring up hate. Lauren's not stopping, and we won't either.
