Why is the President's call to community service important and how have you demonstrated it?
Well, I've listened to Bush's call to community service by leading the fight in my community to ban health care for people I disagree with, and to force homosexuals to leave my county, and...

More seriously: what is a Voter Registration Card? We don't seem to have these in California.

So voters of the world keep supportin’ me
And I promise to take you very far
Other leaders better not upset me
Or I’ll send a million troops to die at war
To all you Republicans, that helped me win
I sincerely like to thank you
Cuz now I got the world swingin’ from my nuts
And damn it feels good to be a gangsta

The DNC's essay contest (Speak Out for the Future) is much less hip.

It's weird that the DNC one is about politics, but the RNC one is about community service--something that's not about politics or government.

"The winner will be announced on MTV's TRL."

Things you must include to win:

- Saddam Hussein is an evil man.

- We must show resolve.

Holla back!

...What was the President's call for community service, anyway? When did it happen? I honestly don't remember. So lost.

The President's call for community service inspired me to spend a bunch of months exposing his ties to a bizarre cult. Does that count?

...the winner may deliver a speech to the nation during the 2004 Republican National Convention

Ah, what a brilliant opportunity for sabotage. However, that might be a bit like baiting the lions in a lion's den.

Decisions are final and no essays will be returned.

...because it costs a lot of money, time, and resources to return an electronic submission, apparently. They're so close to getting it...

Ah, what a brilliant opportunity for sabotage.

For example, write a formulaic, mediochre essay, one which stands a good chance of being accepted, but conceals a second, quite different, message in the first letters of words, first letters of sentences, etc. It's fun to think about, anyway, but it's trick'ry and deception of a kind, so I think I'd only take it as far as a cute thought experiment.

Is that what you meant, or did I read something totally different into it?
