President Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have shown us their vision for America this year. They see an America that looks eerily like the former USSR, with tight controls on our economy, the way Americans do business, and which products Americans are forced to buy (such as health insurance). They want to redistribute the wealth from individual to individual through enormous tax increases and from one region of our country to others through their cap and tax proposal, while they spend future generations of Americans into a spiraling black hole of debt. They apologize for the greatness of America, while terrorists continue attempting attacks on Americans. All the while, Americans are clamoring to make the politicians in Washington, D.C., listen to the will of the people.
I don't know about you, but that infuriates me. Today's leaders need to be reminded they work for you and they had better start listening. Today's liberal, overgrown government is exactly what our Founding Fathers were trying to prevent. I simply cannot sit by and watch President Obama and Nancy Pelosi dismantle the greatness of America to usher in the new age of American Socialism.
I am running for Congress so I can help spread the new American Re-Awakening that is sweeping the nation. And that's why I need your help.
I need you to be one of 100 people to go to our website www.jackgoodman.org/donate.and help us by contributing $10 or more by December 31st to our campaign to help save America.
The only way we can stop President Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid from destroying the American Dream is to elect strong, conservative leaders who will stick to their principles without backing down.
I have never been ashamed to be called a conservative. During my time in the Missouri State Senate, I have resisted the pressure to compromise my beliefs, even challenging the Republican Party leaders when necessary. I have fought for fiscal responsibility, defended innocent life and expanded protection for our fundamental civil liberties...including the right to bear arms.
In Congress, I will fight to preserve the values that made America the "land of opportunity" the rest of the world looked to for guidance and inspiration. I will demand an end to the fiscal insanity that is bankrupting our nation for generations to come. I will work to make sure American families get to keep more of their hard-earned money and make more of their own decisions, free from the heavy hand of big government.
Most importantly, I will always listen to you.
But I can't do any of this if I don't win. That is why I need your assistance today.
With your contribution of $10 or more by tomorrow night, you will join our growing family of supporters determined to renew the American promise of freedom. You will help push us across the finish line.
I understand that these are difficult times. Any donation you can provide, be it $5, 10, $50 or more will be greatly appreciated. My campaign is dedicated to making the most efficient and effective use of our resources.
Thank you for reading this note. I still believe America is the greatest nation in the world. I look forward to working alongside you, fighting to restore and protect the America we know and love.
I pray God will bless our great nation in 2010.
