Grassroots PhoneBank™

How Do You Get Candidates with American Principles and Values Elected?

Well, if they're on your local ballot, you get out there and volunteer to help them. Boots on the ground in the local precincts and districts are the most effective.

But not everyone is in a position to canvass precincts to help a candidate. Travel and the time to travel to different locations further limits availability for boots on the ground participation.

Phone banks are another way to help candidates. The most common practice is setting up a phone bank in a physical office and having participants travel to that location and make phone calls from lists. A corollary to that is distributing electronic files with lists of people and numbers to call. The latter is a management nightmare, and that's where Grassroots PhoneBank comes in.

In the recent Doug Hoffman for Congress (New York 23rd) campaign, Grassroots PhoneBank provided an on-line phone bank and recruited over 200 volunteers, in less than a week, from 32 states to make phone calls for the Hoffman campaign.

If you're interesting in participating in a phone bank of any type, we encourage you to join Grassroots PhoneBank™ Volunteers. This social network provides a way for volunteers to connect with candidates who need help making phone calls.

We are now working with the Abigail Adams Project to gather information for candidates from every state in the nation.

Our first goal is to help the Abigail Adams Project provide voter guides for the Illinois primary on February 2, 2010. This is an important primary, not only because Mr. Obama comes from Illinois, but also because Illinois is often cited as having more than its fair share of the most corrupt politicians in the nation.

In order to provide the voter guides, the Abigail Adams Project needs many boots-on-the-ground volunteers, all over the state of Illinois and with an especially large number of volunteers in Cook County. If you live in Illinois, please join this project now and recruit neighbors and friends to join as well.

When the voter guide is complete, we expect that many of the principled candidates will need volunteers for their local phone banks, and some may even choose to use the services of Grassroots PhoneBank. In any case, please join Illinois 2010 Primary Election group.

Just to be crystal clear, our niche is candidates who have a list -- either a voter list or other lists that you may have built over time or which you have permission to use.

You supply the list. We load the list into your own separate database on our servers and that database drives the phone bank. We do not share any information with anyone. You own the list and the data that is collected using it and the base of volunteer phone bank agents.

We do not make phone calls for you. Those are done by local volunteers that you recruit (we can help with that).

We also provide you an introduction to a national network of phone bank volunteers. These are people who want to help out candidates in other places. These people may choose to volunteer for you or not. Skill at persuading them to make calls for you is needed, especially leading up to the general election when there is competition for volunteers from other candidates in every state.

So, you have your local base of volunteers and potential outside volunteers.

Grassroots PhoneBank™ is relatively new, launched in September, 2009. However, we were successful in landing a client from one of the two Congressional races with elections on November 3rd -- Doug Hoffman (NY-23).

What the Grassroots PhoneBank alleviates for you is all the headaches and management issues associated with traditional paper and spreadsheet systems. That can cost you, literally, hundreds of hours of volunteer or paid staff time. And using a system like this frees up those valuable resources to work on other critical issues. When you compare the opportunity cost of not using Grassroots PhoneBank to the reasonable costs of using it, it's pretty much a no-brainer.

Activity of PVC is now primarily focused in Tennessee and my state of Maryland.  What is your state, Richard?  How about we get your state patriots on to the playing field with consensus vetting.  It's all about relationship among committed patriots.  PVC has the tools; just waiting for willing hands...

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …


DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
