Did you all find the time to distribute the Christian Voter's Guide at your church? Did you donate any money, however little, to your favorite candidate/cause? Did you work the phone banks or stuff evenlopes or go door to door for a campaign?
Did you call your like-minded friends and neighbors to make sure they got their ballot in?
I want everyone to remember how they are feeling now, and how they were feeling last night, and translate that into some action when the 2008 cycle comes about.
