All of the gymnastics, flips and vaults on TV this week make me think of Barack Obama and John McCain. Well, for that matter, just about EVERYTHING these days make me think of them...which I guess is normal since I'm Bob Barr's campaign manager.
Morning, noon, and night, I think of this campaign and how we can get out the word that Bob Barr is the only candidate for President who will bring real change to the way things get done in Washington. There's not a dimes worth of difference between McCain and Obama, you know it, I know it, and every special interest in Washington knows it.
That's why they are pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into their campaigns.
You and I know what they are getting in return. Access, power, government contracts, and all the things you and I stand firmly against.
Today, Bob is out campaigning hard. Barack Obama is vacationing in Hawaii confident of his victory and looking forward to his move into the White House. John McCain is somewhere trying to convince electing him isn't just a third term for George Bush.
And, I'm sitting here trying to think of how we can raise the funds to get out our first advertising in a few weeks. Although early polls show we are in a strong position to make a difference in this election, we must do much more to gain attention and win a spot in the Presidential debates.
I urgently need to raise $500,000 for broadcast advertising. There are only 84 days until the election. I realize you have been supportive in so many ways, but if you can afford to make a gift of $50, $100, $250 or even more, that would help us more than you may know.
Thanks for your consideration.
