    knocking on doors and talking to people, about real issues.  

    As a long time "activist", I've found the only way to turn out the "base" is to go door to door. I don't mean, use the crazy walk lists put out by all the democratic organizations, because if you have been at it as long as I have, you'll know, those lists are outdated crap. I take the lists, and then when I'm on the street, I go to to every single door. And I have my arguments ready; reasonable, calm, logical arguments.  that's how we turn out the "base".  In other words, I talk to people who didn't think it affected them and who now realize, it does. With or without my help.  And because of people out there knocking on their doors, they know that their vote DOES count.
