Oh boy. You and I knew this was true, but when you finally see it confirmed, it still shocks you. Many of us have guessed that Democrats want to keep the economy shut down because they think it will improve their chances of winning the White House in November. (But you can stop them by helping us Get Out The Vote with Trump voters in swing states!)
Well, it turns out we were right. Jason Furman, a top economist in the Obama administration, told officials from both parties in early April, “We are about to see the best economic data we’ve seen in the history of this country.” Great news, right? The 39 million Americans out of work have some hope for their families!
But, that’s not how Democrats see it.
“Furman’s counterintuitive pitch has caused some Democrats, especially Obama alumni, around Washington to panic. ‘This is my big worry,’ said a former Obama White House official who is still close to the former president. Asked about the level of concern among top party officials, he said, ‘It’s high — high, high, high, high.’”1
And the thought of a summer and fall full of economic growth and unemployment numbers falling sharply? “That realization has many Democrats spooked.”
This is a question every American need to answer: Do you want to support a party and a Presidential candidate that actively wants Americans to suffer in order to win an election?
I certainly don’t. Not only because that is repulsive and wicked, but also because it shows you what they are willing to do to the rest of us to gain power. And then what happens once they get the power? Do you think they will then magically have integrity, morals, and serve America selflessly? No way!
I keep saying, if Democrats are willing to show their true character, and tell us what they will do if they win, and now openly mourn an economic rebound, all while they are out of power – what will they do to you, to me, and to our country and Constitution if they are in power, after winning in November?
This is why it is so, so important that we work NOW to Get Out The Vote with the first time in forever Trump voters in must-win states. And it is why we have the goal of reaching one million of them with handwritten postcards from our incredible volunteers.
I’ve talked with you recently about the cost of postage to mail the postcards, and I’ve told you how the crisis has hampered our ability to print one million postcards right now. And so, I am asking if you can help get more postcards printed and get more postcards mailed to voters with a gift of $100, $50, $25, or whatever you are able to give. Right now, we have volunteers filling out 150,000 postcards. We need the postage to ship those to voters and we need to print another 850,000 postcards, and we need your help to get it done.
You and I can’t let a party full of people wishing for and working toward devastation and suffering for the sake of their own power. We can’t turn America over to people like that.
Thank you for all you do, day in and day out, to promote our values and defend freedom!
With deep gratitude,
Jenny Beth Martin
