Don't let them steal another one

Don't let them steal another one

By SOP newswire2

** It`s not too late to make a difference. It`s now or never -- 35 toss up races need your help. ACT FAST. **

Here we are, just hours from Election Day and too many Democrats seem to think this election is already in the bag and all that`s left to do is plan our Election Night parties. They could be in for a big surprise.

The Republicans play to win every time. They fostered every possible ethical breach to get Bush elected. They forged a whole set of new ones to get him reelected. Now they`re trying to do the same for McCain and all their House candidates. It`s up to us to stop them.

Help us raise last-minute urgent funds to put enough eyes and ears on the ground to stop Republican voter fraud and voter suppression tactics.

The past eight years have been the moral low point of the American experience.  Bush and McCain ate birthday cake together while a major American city drowned before our eyes. They launched an unnecessary war in Iraq and left our economy and our future in shambles.

Voter suppression is the last card left in the GOP deck -- and sadly, they`re playing it. In Florida, they`ve sent operatives to steal ballots from elderly Democratic voters.1 In California, they used phony petitions to dupe people into registering Republican. 2 In Virginia they even circulated phony fliers telling Democrats to vote on the wrong day.3

Help us raise last-minute urgent funds to put enough eyes and ears on the ground to stop Republican voter fraud and voter suppression tactics.

This election represents a turning point for this country. If Obama wins, he`ll need the help of a stronger Democratic Congress to dig us out of the hole that Bush, Cheney, and the GOP have put us in.

We must get this right. If we don`t, John McCain and Sarah Palin will try and turn the clock back even further -- to a point none of us can imagine...

Let`s finish our work.

Thanks,

Alec Baldwin
