This campaign's been built on the backs of millions of Americans who believe in change and want to take their country back.
It's up to us to carry the financial burden going forward, and we're fighting a political party that has operated for the last eight years not in the interest of the American people, but to the benefit of big oil and America's corporate and political 'actors' in the Middle East.
They've got the deep pockets behind them, but we've got them outnumbered. There may be hundreds of corporate partners lining up behind the candidacy of John McBush, but there are millions of Americans lining up behind Barack Obama, and we the people can win the fight to take back our great nation.
Standing shoulder to shoulder are a million American volunteers working at the grassroots level, and there are plenty of opportunities to support the campaign with your donation, but your assistance can be as simple as asking a co-worker if they've decided who they're going to vote for this November.
Listen to their answer, without running through your own script and thinking about how they'll respond as you do so... just listen to them and do your best to understand their point of view. Then explain why you feel it's time to change the way Washington works, and set this great nation back onto the course that made this nation great to begin with.
It's time for us to stop favoring the richest Americans and the corporations, and to put the government to work for the rest of us.
All of us. Black, White, Red, Yellow, Brown and Rainbow. Men, Women, college students, factory workers -- folks from every walk of life -- and the generations of Americans following in our footsteps.
