Obama Fundraising Letter

A few days ago I received a letter from Senator Barack Obama’s campaign asking for funding. I’m including a reply below that you may wish to use in the event that you also receive a postage paid envelope and a request for donations to this man.


Senator Barack Obama

Obama for America

PO BOX 802798

Chicago, IL 60680-4263

Dear Senator Obama:

After careful study of the campaign materials included in your mailing along with a familiarity of you and your work in the Senate.

Your letter offered only vague platitudes, and your Senate votes bespeak a lack of faith in the economic aspects of my core belief that I own myself and that no person or group of persons has a legitimate claim over me.

In general, on key votes, you have admirably supported my personal freedoms (with the notable exception of your support of a renewal of the Patriot Act [Vote 29: HR 3199, 3/2/2006]). Your record on reducing government interference in economic aspects of my life, however, is abysmal.

Allow me to remind you of your oath of office:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

From your voting record I surmise that you either do not understand the strict limits imposed on the Congress by Article I of the Constitution of the United States, or you willfully ignore your solemn oath to support and defend it.

When you begin to take your oath of office seriously, you will earn my respect and my campaign contributions.


Your Name

Citizen of Your State
