Not content to rest on its laurels, the leftist supergroup MoveOn.org is mobilizing to impose socialism on America. Here is the group’s latest fundraising email:
Dear MoveOn member,
I’m writing to ask for your help with what may be our most important campaign ever.
Once every generation or two in America, there’s a moment when dramatic change is possible. Thanks to your hard work, this is one of those moments.
But as Barack Obama himself has said, that change depends on all of us. There are literally tens of thousands of lobbyists in Washington, funded by countless millions from corporations and industry groups. The oil and coal companies. The pharmaceutical industry. The HMOs. The telecoms. They’re all gearing up right now to stop any bold health care bill or energy plan dead in its tracks.
They’re going to fight Obama at every step. We have to be prepared to fight back harder.
That’s why we’ve launched a huge campaign to flood Washington with the voices of real Americans who are crying out for change. On TV, on billboards and buses, in district offices and the halls of Congress, we’re going to amplify the voices of MoveOn members and make Barack Obama’s progressive mandate impossible to ignore.
Our plan is really ambitious. And it’ll take serious money. MoveOn doesn’t have Exxon or Pfizer to go to—we only have each other. Can you chip in $25 to fund this big campaign?
Right now, volunteers are gathering hundreds of thousands of stories and photos and signatures of the real Americans who are hungry for change. We’ll deliver them to our representatives in Washington in January, in the biggest day of grassroots action MoveOn has ever organized.
Obama won a powerful mandate, and we’re going to make sure nobody forgets that.
Even with volunteers doing almost all the work, we’ll still need money to pay organizers, print materials, and run ads. Can you help out with a contribution of $25?
Thanks for all you do.
