Ten 10 days ago, I put up a post called What We Can Do: 85 Days, 85 Things and asked you to help come up with a list of 85 things we can do for the 85 days that were left.
We seem to be stalled at 78 things on that list; the full list is included below. Still, 78 is a lot. We have 75 days to go.
Is anyone even looking at that list for ideas?
Today we are featuring the action group PostCard Patriots.
Welcome To Your Broken Glass Moment (information supplied by MazeDancer)
and send them back immediately…
And then, make sure our friends and families do the same.”
– Michelle Obama
At the Democratic Convention
In 2018, PostCard Patriots sent out 12,462 PostCards in just 6 weeks. Thank you, Balloon Juice! We were, thanks to you, outrageously successful.
This year, we are sending out our biggest weapon ever – a website full of the Essential Information you need to make your smartest, safest Voting Plan. Immediately.
And then, like Michelle Obama says, help others to “do the same”.
Because, this year, possibly the most important “Volunteer Effort” you could make is helping other Dems make a Voting Plan.
After all, many Democrats have sworn that they would crawl barefoot over broken glass to vote against Trump.
Welcome to your Broken Glass Moment.
We are in a war.
Trump is on the march.
It could take a month or more for your Absentee Ballot to arrive. If it arrives. And a month or more to get it back, if you have to mail it.
That leaves about two weeks, at most, to make a plan. And some states aren’t ready.
And what if Absentee isn’t the best Voting Plan for you or someone you know after all?
You must decide now. We’re here to help.
Essential Planning Information

So when people ask: What can I do to help beat Trump? Answer: Make a Voting Plan. And then help every Dem you know – or at least two or three – to make theirs.
Why Not PostCards?
Many reasons, Some based on solid Ad Biz Strategy about choosing the proper media vehicle to match the moment.
Some practical: Who knows when they’ll arrive. Plus, we can’t mail more stuff now, and add to the burden of the already beleaguered US Mail.
If you’re actually curious about why PostCard Patriots is voting for no PostCards, this year, here are our 7 reasons why: https://www.postcardpatriots.com/why-not-postcards
Post Your Voting Plans
Once you’ve made your plan, let us know – post it here in the comments or email to PostCardPatriots @ the Google mail place – and we’ll make a lovely illustrated post for Twitter. And tweet it out over and over. But it is yours to use however you choose.
Just make a plan.
Please, please, please, do not shrug and say, oh, I’ll get to it.
Now, get to it now.
Go to PostCardPatriots.com for some help. Or go somewhere else.
But do what Michelle Obama says: make a plan. Then help every Democrat you can make a plan
That could change the world.
