Letter to Sen. McCain

Senator McCain,

After spending a week focused on the bailout and seeing our position in the polls deteriorate, I respectfullly urge you and your campaign to get more aggressive. I’m sure you have staff monitoring the conservative blogs and if so, you’ll see an overwhelming sentiment and impression that you’re ‘going through the motions’ and appearing as though you might not be playing to win.

We are all behind you and Gov. Palin and we believe this is THE most important election in generations. Our country is depending on your victory or we will see freedoms and liberties go away, maybe permanently, under an Obama administration. Just look around and see his campaign attempts to suppress free speech re: ads, radio, TV. Look around and see the voter fraud occuring in Ohio and Wisconsin as I write this. Look around and see Obama’s past and current associations with radicals and terrorists. For the life of me, I cannot understand why you are not talking about these things with the American people.

Senator, my father served in the Army for 30 years, my brother for seven. I am a decendent of Admiral William F. ‘Bull” Halsey. I understand military honor but I also understand that to win a war you must fight to win.

You must fight with every weapon at your disposal and you must not let the possibility of collateral damage influence your mission. We would not have ended WWII unless we went nuclear and broke the will of the Japanese people. We cannot win this election, an election that we desperately need to win for the sake of our children, my 6 and 8 year old, and others like them, unless your campaign goes nuclear and breaks the will of the Democrats.

I know that may be foreign to you because of your reputation and desire to work with both parties. But now is the time to set aside that bipartisanship, and become and campaign as a partisan AMERICAN. Do this for the country that you have served so honorably. Do this for our children and grandchildren. And do this to keep the most liberal person ever to run for POTUS from influencing generations as President.

Please Sen. McCain, take the gloves off. Fight. Fight. Fight. We will fight with you. And when the ashes of this political war settle, we will still be standing with you. A better country. And you a better President.

May God bless you, your family and your campaign. And may God bless the United States of America.
