Subject: Rick Santorum's Budget-Busting Statism
To: Liberty Activist <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Dear Liberty Activist,
That's exactly what President Obama and his one BILLION-dollar campaign war chest will turn our eventual Republican nominee into if you and I nominate a candidate who can't show voters a true contrast . . .
Don't be fooled. We're not going to get that contrast if we choose Rick Santorum.
Today, our campaign is releasing a new television ad to make sure voters know the real story about Santorum's record. Won't you take a moment to watch it?
Also, if you possibly can, I must ask you to please give $20 or $30 to help us run this ad in as many states as possible before Super Tuesday.
You see, I'm confident that once voters learn the truth about both Rick Santorum and Dr. Paul's records, they'll clearly see who the real fiscal conservative is and support our campaign.
But I need your help to spread the word.
Just a couple of years ago, the Republican Party was wandering in the wilderness.
Rick Santorum was a prime culprit. And nominating him as our GOP nominee will only lead to CRUSHING defeat this November.
During his time in the Senate, Santorum voted to:
*** Give millions of taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood;
*** Raise the debt ceiling five times;
*** DOUBLE the size of the Department of Education through the budget-busting and unconstitutional "No Child Left Behind" bill;
*** Start a brand new, unfunded entitlement, Medicare Part D, the largest expansion of entitlement spending since President Lyndon Johnson - creating $16 TRILLION in unfunded liabilities;
*** Stand with senators like Barbara Boxer and Frank Lautenberg to pass massive new federal gun control schemes and regulations;
*** Keep workers under Big Labor's thumb by voting against a National Right to Work law;
*** Send $25 million in taxpayer dollars to North Korea;
*** Pass Sarbanes-Oxley, which imposed dramatic new job-killing accounting regulations on businesses.
And these are only just SOME of the Big Government positions Santorum took in the Senate.
Sure, Rick Santorum has seen a bump in the polls recently. But that's only because it's clear voters are rejecting Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich's counterfeit "conservatism."
They want a candidate who can be trusted to fight for fiscal responsibility, and Santorum has tried to mouth the right words on the campaign trail.
But like Romney and Gingrich, the proof is in the pudding.
And instead of apologizing for his record, Senator Santorum has the audacity to DEFEND virtually every one of his Big Government votes!
The truth is, he's learned absolutely NOTHING from his crushing defeat in his 2006 Pennsylvania reelection race.
Liberty Activist, Republicans aren't going to defeat President Obama this November by agreeing with him.
And don't think for a second that voters will allow themselves to be fooled by another Bush-era, big spending, Big Government establishment Republican this fall.
Voters want REAL change. They want REAL fiscal conservatism.
Not Rick Santorum's budget-busting statism.
Voters want spending CUT - not INCREASED and shifted to different federal departments based on which party is in power.
We're $15 TRILLION in debt.
If our kids and grandkids are going to enjoy the liberties that should be their birthright as Americans, we MUST change course now.
Ron Paul stands apart.
He's never voted to raise taxes, bail out reckless companies, take away your gun rights, raise the debt ceiling, or send millions of dollars to causes that violate taxpayers' deeply held beliefs.
While Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, and Mitt Romney were all working to expand federal power and continue the wild spending spree, Ron Paul was warning about the coming economic crisis and fighting to rein in our out-of-control government.
Liberty Activist, all three of our opponents have the powerful establishment machine on their side.
We're depending on grassroots supporters like you to help us fight the distortions and give voters the truth.
If we want to defeat Barack Obama and get our nation back on track, you and I cannot afford to nominate one of the politicians who helped drive us to the edge in the first place.
Together, you and I can elect Ron Paul and Restore America Now!
P.S. Right now, Rick Santorum is rising in the polls because voters have been taken in by his election year rhetoric.
Our campaign is releasing a new television ad today to make sure the American people learn the truth about Santorum's Big Government, big spending record.
After you watch the ad here, please contribute $20 or $30 to help us run it far and wide - and also spread the message about Dr. Paul's consistent conservatism - before the critical Super Tuesday primaries.
