Signs are going up all over UA

Signs are going up everywhere

We've been planting free candidate yard signs all over UA --- at over 125 locations so far. To the right is the map for just the signs that UAPA has placed over the last two weeks.

Now we need your help to cover this map completely with push pins.

There are two ways to get candidate yard signs:

  1. Pick them up at our debate party this Thursday, October 6. RSVP and get details here.
  2. Or order your free yard signs online here and we'll deliver and plant them at your location!

Democratic Candidate Sign Theft

Thefts of Democratic yard signs began last weekend with one or two incidents and increased quite a bit this past weekend. In each of the incidents reported to us, there were Republican yard signs one or two yards away that were not taken. In some cases, there were several incidents in a single neighborhood.

We are taking the only effective course of action – replace them as soon as possible after the theft is reported.

If your sign is stolen, submit your sign replacement request here.

 

Jon Stewart Rally

Both Big Os — Oprah and Obama — have endorsed Jon Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity, so you know he's on to something big. Since Sept. 16, when Stewart announced his Oct. 30 rally, along with Stephen Colbert’s satirical March to Keep Fear Alive, 190,000 people on Facebook have said they plan to attend the event, while another 100,000 have said they might.

UAPA is getting requests for buses going to the Rally in DC and for info on a satellite event here in Columbus. If you have info on either of these or are interested in volunteering, please send to

May We Suggest...

 

1. Obama's speech to Gen44 tonight knocked our socks off. It's on CSPAN here. If you've forgotten why many of you worked so hard for this guy, and felt hope for the first time in many years, watch it.

2. USA Today Op-Ed: How to fight Tea Party's faux populism by Sherrod Brown. Money quote: "Bring back pre-existing conditions. Vote Republican."


2. From President Obama's Rolling Stone interview:

"It is inexcusable for any Democrat or progressive right now to stand on the sidelines in this midterm election. There may be complaints about us not having gotten certain things done, not fast enough, making certain legislative compromises. But right now, we've got a choice between a Republican Party that has moved to the right of George Bush and is looking to lock in the same policies that got us into these disasters in the first place, versus an administration that, with some admitted warts, has been the most successful administration in a generation in moving progressive agendas forward.
....If we want the kind of country that respects civil rights and civil liberties, we'd better fight in this election. And right now, we are getting outspent eight to one by these 527s that the Roberts court says can spend with impunity without disclosing where their money's coming from. In every single one of these congressional districts, you are seeing these independent organizations outspend political parties and the candidates by, as I said, factors of four to one, five to one, eight to one, 10 to one.

We have to get folks off the sidelines. People need to shake off this lethargy, people need to buck up. Bringing about change is hard — that's what I said during the campaign. It has been hard, and we've got some lumps to show for it. But if people now want to take their ball and go home, that tells me folks weren't serious in the first place.
If you're serious, now's exactly the time that people have to step up."
