Political Emails - Unsubscribe, but Please Vote!

I have somehow managed over the course of the past five years to get on 50 or more political mailings lists. Democratic Party, Obama, Jared Polis, Michael Bennet, MoveOn.org, John Kerry, Bill Clinton, and many many more have me in their sites. And within this past month, the frequency  and number of these emails has begun to parallel the national growth rate for mortgage defaults. 

So this past week I fought back. I discovered the unsubscribe tool (Gmail) and installed it. I searched out the "unsubscribe" button on the bottom of every offending political email. 

And I blew them all away. Every one I could find. Today a message slipped in from the Boulder County Democrats, but I am now very nearly off the political grid. 

Heaven must look a little bit like this. Peaceful.
