Many conservatives thought that this race against Barack Obama and the Democratic machine was going to be an easy one. Conventional wisdom would lead one to believe that with the state of the economy and the national debt, Mickey Mouse could run against President Obama and win. As the close polling shows — that is just simply not so. There is much work to do and it is not just up to the Romney team but to us all to get out the vote and win this election. It is imperative that we not lose steam and stay engaged. Volunteer to phone bank or do neighborhood walks, donate to your favorite candidate, attend events, go to town hall meetings and take an independent with you. This is an election we can’t afford to lose.
