Way to go, Nate! You can be the inspiration for the rest of Tampa Palms :) Their tax bracket is a little higher which does tend to slant their "every man" prospective, but with your help, there can be HOPE. Have you been to the campaign office on Bearss Avenue? They are really nice and can probably help you find some cool merchandise.
I love that feeling too! I live in Tampa, FL and just today, I wore my HOPE shirt and my blue "Yes We Can" wristband to go shopping and I could have sworn people were actually more polite to me! I have a small Obama '08 sticker on the nose of my car, an Obama/MoveOn.org sticker on the left side window and an Obama '08 magnet on the back of the car :O) It gives me such a sense of strength.
When I went to his rally in Dunedin, FL on Wednesday, it was the strongest feeling of camaraderie in that stadium of 11,000 or so people! Even the drive home was magical, because everyone had stickers on their cars - it was like we had taken over the roads :)
Just on my block alone, there are 4 homes at one end of the street and 2 more homes around the corner with Obama yard signs. The local campaign HQ won't be giving them out until late October, but when they do, I will add one at my house, too! I don't wanna jinx it, but so far, no McSame signs!
I live in super conservative Nebraska, and I wear mine just to get a rise out of people. It is my entertainment!!! I have my bumper sticker and three t-shirts. But, since I am a teacher, I don't get to wear them as much as I did in the summer.
I feel the same way when I wear my button and park my car. It's nice to make the statement. I live in such a pro Obama state we can't get tee shirts, yard signs and bumper stickers anymore as they assume they have our state. That's ok with me if moving them to New Hampshire, Pennsylvania or other swing states helps.
