Here is the CALL:

It's time to do something the political parties will notice. And what they notice is (in no particular order), demographics, party affiliation, voting district, race, previous voting record. Changes in those numbers get noticed by the national political election committees.

WHO: Every American Citizen disenfranchised by our Political System

WHAT: Change your Voters Registration

WHEN: Wednesday - January 13, 2010 - During your lunch break

WHERE: Your local County Supervisor of Elections Office

HOW: Whether you are a Democrat or Republican, change your registration to Independent, Green, Libertarian, No Other Party Affiliation, Socialist, whatever alternative that is available in your county.

Simply go in the office get the one page registration form and re-submit. If you go with a few people so much the better.

These voter rolls are used by every party, media outlet, pollster, fundraiser, and government office to count and contact us. SHUT THEM OFF. SHUT THEM OUT.

Our actual voting records are also used as the basis of "Likely Voters". When those stats are checked the registration change will be highlighted. If you're a registered Republican or Democrat and change your party to something else, believe me it will be noticed.

Contact your local media about your intent even if they don't cover any actual event there may be on the day, a tsunami tide of registration changes will be covered.

I don"t know about each of you but... I'm tired of being ignored, taken for granted and laughed at by my elected representatives. From my Congressman, my two Senators, my party leadership, and the President.

I'm exhausted from the economy that is taking money from my pocket and giving it away, no strings attached, to industries that profit from all I believe in.

I weep at the destruction of the American Dream where hard work, education, loyalty and innovation could be rewarded with upward mobility. With a stable and secure future. Where there were laws and regulations to protect us from bankers, con-men and the thieves who would, insidiously and LEGALLY, take everything from us, then come after whatever is left.
