Republicans must get to the voting booths come November or America will lose everything. Year after year, conservative candidates spend billions of dollars canvassing candidates for obvious votes, yet Republican voters fail to get off their couches and physically show up to vote on the one election day of the year that the polls are actually open.

Why is this so difficult? Democrats seem skilled at getting all kinds of life forms to somehow show up and vote. At the rate we’re going, America’s only hope of existing beyond the Obama years is to embrace the fact that 90 percent of life’s great successes come by simply showing up.

Learn from the left, which gets voters to the polls better than Republicans. Liberal activists seem able to outinfluence conservatives by large margin. Stubborn Republicans still answer silly telemarketing calls and even send in their political-donation checks, yet they refuse to take the one day they need to get in their cars and drive to where they can actually vote.

Mindless liberals will win again in November unless Republicans make it to the polls.
