Taking Back Congress

Wanna get involved and help turn a few Democrat-held seats into Republican ones?

Check out 40 Seats, a website that has identified the most likely districts to flip this fall and helps to organize people in those areas to aid the cause.

Here's a little bit about the group:
40 Seats is a Political Action Committee (PAC) aimed at returning a conservative majority to Congress in the 2010 election. 40 Seats strategy is to target the most vulnerable liberal incumbents and focus resources on winning those races. 40 Seats fosters volunteerism and connects volunteers with the critical Congressional races closest to them.
Though OL&L readers hail from all over the globe, most of you are from NY, DC, and the Western United States. Know that all of you--including those in NYC--are close to a seat with a vulnerable Democrat incumbent.

If we are to return a conservative majority to Congress, we must translate our enthusiasm into votes and the only way to do that is to organize and get out of the vote. Don't leave it up to your neighbor or your grandma. Get involved. If you can't knock doors, make phone calls. If you can't help transport voters to the polls, blog. If you have trouble putting together coherent sentences, get on that Twitter and do it 140 characters at a time.

Oh, and follow me. Like many of you, I have precious little time to blog like I used to. So I post my thoughts as succinctly as I can on Twitter. It's a great tool for political organizing and keeping up-to-date on all the latest news. Even if you don't intend to say anything yourself (though I'm betting you'll get sucked in), following is a heck of a lot of fun.

We have a chance to have a once-in-a-century change of fortune in the House this year. Don't sit on the sideline and miss out.
