fyi from my email

Dear Terry,

The convention is now underway in Denver, and in just two days, Barack Obama will accept the nomination before a crowd of 75,000 people and millions more at home.

But right-wing groups are already up to their old tricks and embracing low road politics in an effort to smear Barack and diminish this moment.

That's why it's more important than ever to make your voice heard right now.

Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper to let your community and the country know that Michigan stands behind Barack Obama -- and that Barack Obama stands with the people of Michigan for good jobs, a stronger economy, and the issues that matter most.

Our online letter-to-the-editor tool makes it easier than ever to make your voice heard.

Take action now and write a letter about why you support Barack and this movement for change.

The past eight years have been devastating to families in Michigan and across the country. We can't afford four more years of those same failed Bush-McCain policies -- and with less than 10 weeks until Election Day, the time to share Barack's message of change with Michigan is now.

Take this opportunity to tell your friends, family, and neighbors more about Barack and his specific plan for strengthening our economy. Barack's economic plan will provide a permanent tax credit of up to $1,000 to hard-working American families, end tax breaks for companies that send jobs overseas, and extend $4 billion in tax credits to re-tool and re-energize the auto industry.

Speak out now on the economy and make a difference in Michigan: http://mi.barackobama.com/miLTE/ Our online letter-to-the-editor tool includes facts to help you write your letter on this and other major issues, like energy and foreign relations.

You can also check out our state homepage, MI.BarackObama.com. We regularly update it with current issues and information, so please check back often.

Thank you,

Amy Amy Chapman Michigan State Director Obama for America

P.S. -- This Thursday, as millions of people across the country watch Barack accept the Democratic nomination, we have to seize the opportunity to register and mobilize new supporters.

That's why folks like you across the state are taking part in a massive Weekend of Action this Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.
