As you know, political web sites and the voters pamphlet are poll tested generalized statements that is wishful thinking at best. I used the voters pamphlet more as a letter to the people. In it I said I would share some of the things I learned from doors I knocked on.
the 6 most intresting doors
Me: my name is.......I'll ask for your vote.
Door: I dont vote.
Me: Why not?
Door: Cause I might get colon cancer.
Me: I am not sure I understand.
Door: The stuff I read in the voters pamphlet make me feel like you people are blowing smoke up my ...(behind)
Me:...I'll ask for your vote
Door: I am pro-choice, how do you feel about abortion?
Me: Sometimes bad things happen. Women need to be able to safely take care of themselves and I understand that. That being said I'll tell you what I tell my kids. "A pro-choice man is a bad choice, he is only looking to divest himself of the consequences of his actions"
Door: Honey, get the kids, they need to hear this guy.
IP 43 & IP 44 (Gun Confiscation)
Me: ...I'll ask for your vote
Door: How do you feel about IP43 and IP 44? I am in law enforcement by the way.
Me: You know more about it then me. You tell me how should I feel.
Door: You should be against it
Me: Why's that? (I was suprised)
Door: BECAUSE IT IS GOING TO LAND ON MY DESK AND I DONT HAVE TIME FOR THAT S*#!
Me: I'll let Kate Brown know how you feel if I run into her.
Me:...I'll ask for your vote.
Door: How do you feel about gun control?
Me: I would love to see gun safety classes offered in school again. It used to be called hunter safety class. I believe trigger discipline through education is the most effective gun control. Trigger discipline also just happens be the best solution to unwanted pregnancies.
Door: Trigger discipline as birth control? OH, I GET IT!! HAHAHAHA (blushing)
Me:... I'll as for your vote.
Door: What would you do to make sure the elections don't get hacked?
Me: I will build a wall, a terrific wall, the besty wall of all time, and it will be a warm wall, no a hot wall, in fact I will call it a FIREWALL.
Door: You crack me up!
Springfield Round-A-Bouts (Traffic Control)
Me:...I'll as for your vote.
Door: How do you feel about the new round-a-bouts in Springfield?
Me: We love them. Sometimes I just pack the family up and we drive around in circles all day.
Door: I love them too! I'll do a lucky tap dance to help you win. (Starts doing a tap dance)
2nd person at door: Sorry, he didn't take his medicine today.
Me: I can't lose with support like that!!!
