This is what I was doing last weekend. Along with tens of thousands of Americans all over the country.
Going door to door right in my neighborhood asking the 40 people on my list to sign the petition calling congress to end the war in Iraq and bring troops home with a year. We are not simply collection signatures.
Over the past 5-6 years we have marched, we have lobbied Congress, written letters, and said this war must end.
The goal here was to find NEW people who we havent met yet, and havent made up their minds yet. Our lists are compiled of newly registered and infrequently voting neighbors. Not just the same people who already agree with us to end the war. The idea is to deliver this petition to congress with a whole list of new supporters of ending the war in Iraq.
Here's the petition.
Also see the Responsible Plan to end the war in Iraq.
I did meet a few of my neighbors, one right in my building, that are very supportive of ending the war. That made my day.

We were waiting for THIS! Me and my boyfriend were chatting about how great it would be if Tina Fey would come on SNL as Palin right after the RNC. A week later I hear she is AND Obama was slated to appear but had to cancel due to hurricane Ike.
I was waiting for Hilary to belt Sarah across the face with the piece of podium she tore off.
Last night the WORD on Colbert Report was hilarious! How dare you question your potential leaders!
I wont be laughing if these crooks actually win.
Tina Fey glasses, talks like she's chewing her face, charges victems for their own rape kits.
Suggested daily reading for the next 50 days.
Every time I sneeze, it's like I'm four sneezes away from the hospice.
And it's like it's not even happening to me, it's like I'm watching it on some crappy show like Melrose Place or some shit right, and I'm the new character, I'm the HIV AIDS character and I live in the building and I teach everybody that
'It's OK to be near me, it's OK to talk to me.'
And then I die.
And there's everybody at my funeral wearing halter tops or chokers or some shit like that.
Vickie stop, OK? Just stop. You're freaking out. And you know what? You're gonna have to deal with the results, whatever they are, we're gonna have to deal with them just like we've dealt with everything else.
This isn't like everything else.
I know that, alright? But it's gonna be OK, you know? I know it's gonna be OK…
Melrose Place is a really good show.
