How do you advocate for the candidate of your choice? What is campaigning all about? What are those Republicans and Democrats doing these days? What are we talking about over lunch with our co-workers? What is a campaign speech? We all use persuasive techniques, even you, don't we? Right now you are trying to convince your readers that Democrats should not ask for votes and should leave you alone to vote in peace. That's your right. Your tormentors have rights, too. Persuasiveness is a fact of life. People ask us to vote for their candidate because they feel that their choice is worthy of being elected. If your daddy decides to run for governor, please call me so I can observe your behavior during the campaign. :D I love these questions! Thanks.
