Help Keep Bush on the Run

President Bush is on the defensive. After his State of the Union speech, the White House launched a four state blitz to sell his Social Security privatization scam. But in every state he visited, the Campaign for America's Future, and our allies, organized thousands of people to greet Air Force One with protest.

Our message was carried by nearly every TV station and every newspaper in each city visited by the President -- reaching hundreds of thousands of people. Because of our efforts, the White House is running scared and has now doubled the scope of its opening sales pitch to hit another four states with its pro-privatization rhetoric.

We need to raise $15,000 in the next two days to get people on the ground in every state that Bush plans to visit, and continue trumping him with highly visible protests against privatization.

"Social Security is the soft underbelly of the welfare state," declared White House ally Stephen Moore of the radically right wing Free Enterprise Fund and Club for Growth. "If you can jab your spear through that, you can undermine the whole welfare state."

The Campaign for America's Future is on the front lines of a battle to protect a basic American value: that after a lifetime of hard work, our government should guarantee American families a life above the poverty line.

Please help us continue to take the fight to the President in each and every state he's planning to visit.

The President is extending his tour because he knows we're winning. We have to keep up our momentum. Last week, together with our allies, we hounded the media and organized thousands of people to meet the President at every turn. One Nebraska newscaster put it this way on the evening news: the Campaign for America's Future "thinks nationally and speaks locally." (KETV Channel 7, Omaha, 2/3/05)

We didn't plan on the President extending his trip, but he's doing it to bolster his flagging support for Social Security privatization. We need to raise $15,000 in two days to make sure that we can stay on the offensive and turn up the heat on the White House. In the coming days, we will rally thousands of people, print countless signs and make sure the local media in each town the President visits knows exactly what his privatization scam means for their community.

We're leading the charge to save Social Security, but, don't just take our word for it. According to the Associated Press, "The Campaign for America's Future is leading a coalition of 20 organizations traditionally aligned with the Democratic Party: labor unions and advocacy groups for civil rights, women, senior citizens and the disabled." (Associated Press, 2/1/05) We are proud to be working with powerful allies like USAction, the American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees, the Alliance for Retired Americans, the AFL-CIO, and MoveOn.org in this important fight.

See more about our recent successes and help keep the great momentum -- against privatization -- going strong!

Campaign for America's Future Co-Director Roger Hickey was quoted in USA Today this Monday as saying: "It's an epic battle. If Bush succeeds here, he's changed the whole paradigm of what government is out to do."

The road ahead will be difficult, but with your help, we will win.
