In just a few weeks, Americans will go to the polls
in a critical election. I need your help. The
Republican Party needs your help. Our Republican
candidates do, too.
I'm asking you to do two things: support the
Republican National Committee with your contribution
today and make certain you and every family member
and friend who supports what I am doing as President
get to the polls.
Your donation at www.GOP.com/ElectRepublicans/
to the Republican National Committee and your help
in getting out the vote will make a big difference
to my agenda to make America safer, stronger, and
We have made great progress, starting with the
largest tax cut in decades. What Washington spends
is not the government's money, it's the people's
money. Tax relief was the right policy at just the
right time to help our economy. I look forward to
working with Congress to make tax relief permanent,
starting with killing the death tax once and for
We worked with Republicans and Democrats on
education reform - to make certain every child
learns to read. We're insisting on high standards,
local control of schools and strong accountability
so every child succeeds and no child is left behind.
Republicans are helping end dependency on government
by fighting to extend the reforms that require those
on welfare to work for their checks and limit how
long the able-bodied can get welfare. And we want to
broaden welfare reform by making it easier for
faith-based groups to be involved in the tackling of
hopelessness and despair.
From important health care reforms that put the
patient in charge, to a national energy plan to
create jobs and reduce our dependence on foreign
oil, to trade policy to create jobs, to common sense
measures to make our forests healthier and our
environment cleaner, Republicans are showing the
American people that our compassionate conservative
philosophy improves people's lives.
And while I appreciate the support of many Democrats
on the war against terrorism and homeland security,
my requests for more defense spending and a stronger
homeland defense department with management
authority to get the job done would have a better
reception in a Congress with a Republican Majority
in both the House and Senate.
We've accomplished a lot and it is significant that
all of our major legislative accomplishments -- from
tax relief, to education reforms, to trade promotion
authority, to a crackdown on corporate wrongdoing --
started in the House of Representatives, whose
leaders share my philosophy and approach to
governing. I believe we can accomplish a great deal
for the American people during the next several
years if the leaders of the House and Senate are
Republicans who are committed to working with me to
make America safer, stronger and better.
So please, help me today by sending the Republican
National Committee as much as you can afford -- $35,
$50, $100, $250, $500, $1000 or even more today at www.GOP.com/ElectRepublicans/
All you give will go for the Republican Party's
election activities, helping candidates who back me
and my agenda. They are counting on your help and so
And, please, also make certain everyone you know who
supports my compassionate conservative agenda and
approves of my leadership is registered and votes.
The other party -- along with some of their liberal
interest group allies -- will do all they can to get
out their vote. They know the stakes, and I'm
counting on you to outwork them.
Thank you for your support of our candidates, our
philosophy and me.

P.S. The U.S. House and Senate are both up for
grabs. A record number of Governors' races are in
play, as well as offices up and down the ballot.
This election matters a lot.
The Republican Party needs your help today to win.
I'm counting on your support to help bring home
victory. Please respond today at www.GOP.com/ElectRepublicans/
