One YEAR Ago I Helped Reelect President Obama September 29, 2015 RUN JOE RUN 2016

Original post:  One Month Ago - Updated One year ago today I helped Reelect President Obama!

UPDATE: September 29, 2015,  America, World, President Obama coalition of Women, Poor, Gay Pride Community, Young, Students, Blacks, Seniors, and Hispanic need another President Obama and Vice President Biden term.  That is impossible because President Obama can't run again.

We can have a third Obama term with a man who shares our values and has fought for them for decades A man who has the experience, wisdom, knowledge, and heart to lead the nation and the world. That man is Vice President Joe Biden.

Vice President Biden will move this nation forward and build on the CHANGE and protect that Change made under Obama/Biden Administration.. With the diverse people featured in the video working for him Biden will win in 2016. After 2016 the Democratic Party will occupy the White House for the next 20 years or more.

On November 6, 2012, this nation decided to move forward by reelecting President Obama. By choosing Barack Obama voters rejected Mitt Romney and the Republican’s vision, budget, and agenda for this nation. I decided that this is a great day to make and share this video of my experience volunteering in President Obama’s Vote Corp.

 At my own expense of approximately $1,000 which was a necessary hardship for someone on a fixed income, I helped him WIN the State of Virginia  for the second time and win the 2012 presidential election.

NOTE: The African-American male in black hat and Pres Obama gear is retired officer of either the Air Force or Navy. He has family who served in all four branches of our military. He donated food for lunch for our entire office several times a week not daily as I misstated in the video.

Volunteers Helping President Obama Deliver CHANGE

You too can be a part of a unique opportunity to help President Obama CHANGE America. During the weekend of October 22, 2012, a group of young Washington DC professionals who are featured in this video drove to Norfolk, VA and knocked on doors to get unlikely voters to the polls.

On November 2, 2012, members of a group of three hundred (300) volunteers from the Washington DC area came to President Obama's Norfolk headquarters to join local volunteers and paid OFA staff to knock on doors and leave door hangers. The door hangers include the location of the polling place, acceptable identification needed to vote, and the time that the polls are open in VA. Our president needs Americans who believe in his vision of equality, justice, and equal opportunity for ALL Americans to VOTE and HELP him by volunteering the last FOUR days of this election campaign. If you live in or near VA or any swing state (OH, FL, CO, NV) please answer the urgent call for action by President Obama to get out the vote (GOTV).

President Obama is providing outstanding leadership as he response to the 109 deaths and destruction caused in America by Hurricane Sandy. In order to save this nation and the world from the unimaginable horrors of a MITT ROMNEY presidency (i.e. the elimination of FEMA) President Obama needs your help. We must continue to move FORWARD! We can’t go BACKWARDS and/or let KARL ROVE, who was George W. Bush’s brain install another unqualified puppet (Romney) as this nation’s commander-in-chief or the leader of the free world. We can and will move forward if you take action by volunteering and voting for President Obama.

General Clark, Congressmen Clyburn and Scott Supporting President Obama at his Norfolk Headquarters

On October 14, 2012, I had the pleasure of witnessing a press conference by General Wesley Clark, Congressman James Clyburn (SC) and Congressman Bobby Scott (VA) at President Obama re-election headquarters in Norfolk, VA.
I was able to attend the press conference and shake the hand of General Clark and take a picture with Congressman Clyburn because I answered President Obama’s campaign call for volunteers. President Obama organization OFA (Organization for America) is current requesting volunteers to report to swing states to help him win the 2012 Presidential Election. I volunteered because I believe that for better (President Obama’s re-election) or worse (a Romney/Ryan/Rove/Koch Brothers’ Presidency) the result of the November 6, 2012, presidential election will forever CHANGE America. If you believe in equality (equal educational, housing, and employment opportunities), justice, and liberty for all Americans please answer President Obama’s call to help him win by applying to his Vote Corps program.

Romney Can Americans Especially Hispanic Americans Trust You?

Many African-Americans including Hazel whose VOICE is heard in this video realized that they had to actively respond to voter suppression efforts that occurred after President Obama won in 2008. Republican governors and legislatures around the country reacted to President Obama’s historic win by passing new voter ID laws to make it more difficult for the poor and minorities to vote. Hazel is a grandmother who lives in NJ. She told me that she drives her car with friends or family that is available to SWING states to register voters. Since 2007 Hazel has uses her own money for travel expenses because she believed that getting the Black vote out in 2008 was very important. Today she believes that getting the Black voters registered and to the polls on November 6, 2012, is even more IMPORTANT than it was in 2008. All Americans regardless of race, religion, color, creed, or sexual orientation should exercise their right to vote on November 6, 2012. If you are an eligible voter you can register online today.

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Members Registering Houston Voters

On September 25, 2012, was National Voter’s Registration day. I videotaped three women at a Metro transit station after they informed me that they were continuing their efforts to register voter prior to the November 6, 2012, election. The women are members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated. According to one of them has partnership with Metro Houston’s mass transportation agency to register eligible voters for the 2012 presidential election. Like many people these women realizes that voting is a right that all Americans should exercise during on November 6, 2012.

CHANGING Washington and America by Volunteering for President Obama

On September 15, 2012, I volunteered at President Obama’s re-election headquarters in Houston, TX. I volunteered because I am being the CHANGE that President Obama referenced and that I voted for in both the 2008 presidential and the 2010 midterm elections. More importantly I volunteered because I believe that for better or worse the result of the November 6, 2012, Presidential Election will forever CHANGE America. This election is this nation’s true Waterloo moment. On November 6, 2012, we must not allow the Republican Party to achieve their goals of making President Obama a one term president and/or “taking “OUR” country back. We are not going back or BACKWARDS. We are moving FORWARD with President Obama and his vision of CHANGING Washington in order to make America a more perfect nation that offers OPPORTUNTIES for equality, justice and a first class education for all of its citizens.

2012 is Halftime in America and Halftime for Obama's Presidency

Republican actor Clint Eastwood’s controversial 2012 Super Bowl ad titled “Halftime in America” is a great example of President Obama’s presidency and a reason to support his re-election

Who would take their first string quarterback out at halftime when they were winning the game and replace him (Obama) with second string quarterbacks (Mitt Romney or Newt Gingrich)?

President Obama’s latest approval rating of 50 percent, an 8.3 percent unemployment rate which is the lowest since 2008, 250,000 private sector jobs were created in January 2012, and the Dow Jones reaching its highest level (12,862 points) since 2008 all support voters keeping him in office as this nation’s quarterback and Commander-in Chief on November 6, 2012.

I Honor Martin Luther King by being a Drum Major for Justice

On January 16, 2012, President Obama spoke briefly about ways to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on King’s national holiday. President Obama said in part: “All of us can be a drum major for service; all of us can be a drum major for justice. There is nobody who can’t serve or help somebody else. You can find opportunities to make an enormous difference in your communities. This is my video response to President Obama’s remarks.

I am a drum major for justice because I believe that my entire life and employment discrimination experience detailed in my timely book demands that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 be amended again. The act needs to be amended to prevent one federal judge from have the absolute authority to dismiss employment discrimination cases based on summary judgment motions.

Dr. King’s tireless efforts to achieve equality and justice for all Americans made it possible for this nation to elect President Barack Obama as its FIRST African-American president. What are you going to do today and/or doing to honor the memory and legacy of Dr. King?
