Dear Fellow Patriot,

When you announce plans to lead a historic effort ensuring fair and legal elections, you’re sure to make a few enemies.

Activist groups recently hit the airwaves of MSNBC, calling True the Vote’s efforts to recruit one million poll watchers “attempts to undermine democracy for partisan gain.” Not only did MSNBC air this completely one-sided and biased segment, they also reinforced the message of our opponents, labeling this interview with a graphic that read: “UNDERMINING DEMOCRACY.”

What could be further from the truth? Each state has its own laws regarding voter eligibility, and our goal is to simply monitor polling places to ensure the laws already in place are upheld.

But nothing frightens the far left more than voter identification laws, because it means the end of fraudulently tipping elections in their favor. We’re being attacked because we undermine the left’s agenda, not democracy. That’s why I’m urgently asking you to help True the Vote today to restore integrity to America’s election by making an immediate donation of $25, $50, $100, $250 or more.

This week marks an important fundraising deadline for political candidates, and we expect to see unprecedented fundraising totals for the left’s election machine. By donating today, you can help True the Vote counter that aggressive, radical agenda.

Does our mission sound subversive to you? Does it sound like we want to prevent eligible African-Americans, Latinos, elderly people, or young adults from voting, as the liberal media wants you to believe? Of course not. But those who work for true democracy threaten the radical agenda of the left—those who are “undermining democracy” with their efforts to bypass laws that keep America’s elections fair and safe.

We will not let attacks on national television slow down our important work, but we need your support today to keep up the drumbeat. So will you make an immediate donation to support True the Vote’s efforts?

I’ve written before to tell you about our efforts to coordinate citizen led programs that help us all protect the integrity of our elections. It will take resources to make this happen — and to continue proving by example that we are not “undermining democracy” as MSNBC will have you believe. With your contribution right now, True the Vote can continue to expand its efforts: equipping citizens to leave no polling place unmanned, no registry unchecked, no positive legislative reform undefended.

It’s up to concerned individuals like you and me to fight back. Will you do your part to ensure our elections are free and fair—and help us defend ourselves from these baseless attacks? Please follow this link to make the most generous contribution to True the Vote you can afford today, and help us counter the massive fundraising machine of the left. Together, we can ensure every American election is free and fair in 2012. Thank you in advance for your support.

Onward –
