Frankfurt/M. - The Rhein-Main for Obama group continues to grow as the word gets out that even we expats can Stand Up and convince others that Sen. Barack Obama would make the best next President.
A group of about 10 persons was on hand in the Frankfurt Marriott on 5 March to discuss the Ohio and Texas primaries and caucuses that took place a day earlier. We all agreed that no fat lady has sung in this contest. New members came from Wiesbaden and the Taunus to join us Frankfurters.
The next meeting is set for Wednesday 19 March at 8 pm in the Marriott's Expressivo coffee shop. By that time we should have another batch of OBAMA '08 buttons, bumper stickers and even (New!) polo
shirts. All contributions to obtain such political goodies naturally goes directly to the Obama campaign. Not only is this a good fund raiser, but it also helps us demonstrate who we support in his bid for the Democratic nomination, and after that tough contest is won, on to the General Election in November.
Another good reason to attend the March 19th meeting here in Frankfurt is to get all the information you may need on how to Register and Vote in this federal election. Our Voting Assistance officer has his book covering every state back home and the necessary links on how to get the information you need.
Anyone interested, including all still sitting on the fence, are welcome to join this group to discuss the issues and hear what Sen. Obama has to say on what interests you. But at the end of the day, meaning by the end of August when the Democratic Convention decides who will be the candidate, we want to make sure everyone sees Barack Obama for what he is -- the only candidate who can bridge the
Democratic-Republican gap, obviously the White-Black gap, and who would present a new face to the world, an intelligent, inspiring and feet-on-the-ground President whose biography shows he has the values and inner compass that we want to see in our Top Person.
If you agree Now is the Time to Stand Up for change, for hope, and for Barack Obama, come to talk with us on 19 March. Yes We Can!
