In sum: Bob will be on Glen Beck's CNN show tonight from 7 - 8 p.m. (eastern) with repeats. And if you donate at least $100 to Bob's campaign, you get an autographed picture of Bob! Woohoo!
Dear David,Thanks to your support for Bob Barr, his campaign for the Presidency is on solid footing and next week we shift into high gear. Over the past few days we have received record media coverage. In fact, today Glen Beck has Bob on his CNN Headline News broadcast for an hour long special. (7:00 PM, 9:00 PM and 12:00AM all EDT) I encourage you to watch it and if you would be so kind as to forward this reminder to family, friends or others who would be interested, I would appreciate it.
Of course, Bob's combined coverage this week and next - during the Democrat and Republican Conventions - will total but a few hours compared to well more than 100 for the Obama and McCain campaigns.
As you consider that figure, ask yourself what in the way of real issues have the Democrats addressed? And what will the Republicans have to say?
For certain, there is nothing new and the majority of the rhetoric is shrill complaints and attacks on their opponents. It is clear that there will be nothing new, that's what the powerful special interests want.
To the extent that they talk about specific government programs, they are always about expanding programs, departments, agencies and offices. That means spending more money, raising taxes, and running up the national debt.
Only Bob Barr has a plan to shut down wasteful government programs, balance the federal budget, reduce the national debt and cut taxes. Only Bob Barr has a commitment to a foreign policy that emphasizes our national defense interests exclusively. Only Bob Barr will fix our economy, bring energy independence and put the American people's interest first.
That's why he is doing so well in public opinion surveys and gaining ground.
I believe that if the Barr campaign can begin a national radio and TV advertising campaign to build awareness of Bob's stands on issues, he could double or even triple his standings in the polls. Once that is accomplished, he will be included in every televised debate and every American will recognize that they have a real choice for change.
Bob needs your help now to launch this ad campaign. Your gift of $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or even more will equip us with the resources to elevate this campaign to the next level.
I thank you for your consideration and support.
P.S. - Send at least $100 and I'll get Bob to personally autograph and inscribe a message to you on an 8"x10" color photograph of Bob with his wife Jeri.
