Last Thursday, the McCain campaign decided to stop aggressively campaigning in Michigan. This is a mistake, as Sarah Palin at least recognizes. She has expressed a desire to come back to Michigan to continue campaigning. I say to you Senator McCain…Michigan Matters!!! Do not give up on Michigan.
The voter’s in Michigan can make a big difference in this Presidential campaign; every vote counts! Remember the fierce contest between Bush and Gore? Please respect the voters who haven’t made up their minds by understanding that many of them are on the fence; give them a reason to support your team. For those who choose to support Obama-Biden…it gives them an unfair advantage to influence the voters; who may feel abandoned by half of the Presidential nominees.
We are a unique state, in a lot of ways. We are also mavericks. We have overcome alot. Many of us, those who have continued to stay in Michigan despite the economic difficulties, are strong willed. We have been overlooked in the primaries…our votes were cut in half. Do you think that is ok with us? No! Now we are being told that you aren’t thinking that we are worth your time to campaign here; because, some stupid polls are saying that Obama is ahead in numbers? Come on…give us some credit for making our own decisions politically. Polls don’t always transition to winning votes when push comes to shove. Your decision to exclude Michigan from further campaigning is going to carry some serious impact on the outcome of the election. Every votes counts…are you willing to gamble with the votes that you have already gained by ignorning those who haven’t made up their minds?
With your history of heroic action in the military…i didn’t figure you for a quitter. What if your country had given up on you? Your running mate doesn’t appear to give up easily! If you trust her decision making ability, you will reconsider the decision to stop campaigning in Michigan. I say to you…when things look the bleakest…that is when the most amazing things happen; things miraculous!
Take a stand, send Sarah; matter of a fact… come back yourself. Even the runt of a litter that gets picked rewards it’s caretaker with loyalty. This state has a history of turning things around…we’ve done it before…and, we are going to do it again. We have gone through difficulties with businesses closing up and moving out of state or, out of country; we have had the automobile industry take some hard hits…we have struggled to survive. We are going to be on the forefront of the alternative energy field…we are going to turn the economic predictions for Michigan on it’s head.
We don’t forget those that stick by us. Maybe it is time to remind you that Detroit, one of the biggest cities in Michigan, has been RECENTLY scandalized by Detroit’s former mayor, DEMOCRAT Kwame Kilpatrick and his behavior. We want a candidate for President who respects the citizens of this nation and has their best interest at heart. Is that candidate you?
Michigan remembers the bullying tactics that Kilpatrick’s team allegedly used to try to stay in power…Republicans could use that behavior in their favor; as they try to win this state in the Presidential election. Come on, refocus on the voters in Michigan that have been feeling neglected, abused and in-validated over the last year, in the tug of war for votes. It is time to remind the world that Republicans understand that, every vote counts!
There is a grass roots effort to get 100,000 signatures on a petition to bring the McCain-Palin campaign back to michigan here: www.fightformichigan.com Make your voice heard! If you only hear once side of an argument (or campaign) how do you think that will influence the outcome? There is another organization that is going to try to express the opposition to the Obama-Biden campaign message www.ourcountrydeservesbetter.com, by spending up to $500,000 on advertising a Stop Obama campaign. People can’t make informed choices if they are only given one choice…all we ask is give us options in our choosing!
