Richard --

John McCain just accepted the Republican nomination and adopted the most conservative platform in the history of his party. And I say, right on. It’s about time!

After days of negative attacks -- and no mention of real proposals to fix our economy, get more people health care, or make America safer -- the party that brought you eight years of disastrous policies is asking for four more. Yes, I know you have spent a week attacking Sarah Palin, but beyond that, it isn’t the government’s job to “fix” the economy. They tried that for years in the Soviet Union and it never works. Besides, unemployment is lower now than during the Clinton years. As for health care – nobody is denied health care. You are confusing health INSURANCE with health CARE. Republicans make America safer by taking the fight to the terrorists.

Well, not if we have anything to say about it. And that’s what is scary.

Across this nation, people like you (you wish) have joined this movement because you believe that we are better than the past eight years. And now that we are entering the final stretch, it's going to take all of us to bring the change we need.

Step up at this crucial moment and make a donation of $5 or more to change our country. I will, to McCain-Palin.

After the last eight years, it's up to you to keep America's promise alive.

How can John McCain pull us out of the deep hole we're in when he voted with George Bush more than 90% of the time? See, here is my question: what hole?

The American people deserve more than a 10% chance at change. And they deserve better than Chicago thug politics.

No matter what McCain says, we can't bring about change by relying on the same ideas that have failed us for the last eight years. Obviously, you haven’t been listening.

Show the McCain campaign that people coming together, giving what they can afford, and working toward a common purpose will transform this country. I will, I ‘ll double my McCain contribution.

Change begins with you. Please make a donation of $5 or more now:

Thanks for everything you're doing,

Joe

I sent a postage prepaid envelope back to the Obama campaign with a big, fat ZERO in the "Other" donation amount space.

I wonder if they'll be sending any further requests for contributions...
