Doubling Down on Community Organizing

Regardless of where we each stand across the conservative spectrum or what our differences might be on other issues, if there was ever a time for us to have a meeting of the minds….this is it.

I’m just going to quote a few points from this article and hope this inspires those of us who might be discouraged or disappointed at the moment to dig a little deeper in the trenches.

The community organizer who became president has launched a massive pre-reelection year campaign to assemble and train an army of new community organizers to carry Obama’s “movement forward for years to come.”

The message about what it calls the “Summer Organizing Fellowship” adds: “Effective organizing doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It takes commitment, time, and hard work to build a movement around a cause.” It does not specify what the “cause” is, other than promoting Obama and his agenda.

It appealed for workers of all ages to volunteer to undergo professional organizational training this summer for stationing in communities all over the nation to drive President Obama’s social and political agenda.

The cadres “will be assigned to a specific community,” the message informs, “where they’ll work to organize supporters street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood.”

Their job will involve recruiting additional Obama workers, running Obama-related events, knocking on doors to talk of Obama “and lay new groundwork to carry this movement forward for years to come.”

This is taking place through the organization Organizing for America.

I wonder who is paying for this????

If we want to save this country, we’ve got to match the kind of effort that will be made by our opposition in getting the word out and talking people to within our own communities.

Ideas and suggestions welcome.
