Here's a letter of desperation from Satorum Ireceived this AM.
(Yes, I signed up for NewsMax to keep up with what the opposition is promoting!)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Fellow Conservative,

I have to ask you a very important question that affects you and your family:

Why on earth is a U.S. Senate race in Pennsylvania so important to you and families across America?

Here's why. If you want to keep your taxes low, defeat the terrorist threat to our freedom, and restore sanity to our judicial system by appointing judges who wont re-write the Constitution every chance they get ...

...then my victory in Pennsylvania will help protect you and your family from the radical left seeking to seize control of the United States Senate this November.

Contribute Today!

I have to ask for your support today because the radical left, more than anything, wants to control the Senate and they know my race holds the key.

Is that important to you? I believe it is. If you think that four years of steady economic growth hasn't been important to our country...

...if you don't want a repeat of Bill Clintons massive tax hikes...

...and you don't like the idea of any of our troops in harms way, but you know in your heart that we cannot cut and run from Iraq...

...then you understand fully why I must be re-elected in November. All of this, plus the Supreme Court nominees and other judicial nominees are at stake, truly at risk if Republicans lose our Senate Majority.

Contribute Today!

There is little argument that we've got to put the breaks on spending. Even given the war or terror, the horrific hurricane season we experienced, and homeland security costs, the buck needs to stop.

And we will - without sacrificing our national security or your economic well-being. We can and must keep our economy growing and continue to create more jobs.

I assure you, that won't happen if the Democrats takeover Congress. Fiscal restraint or winning the war on terror simply isnt on their agenda.

In fact, I don't really think they have an agenda. My opponent - under the direction of the liberals who control his party - simply attacks me.

Look, I can take it when they attack me. I chose a life of public service and I know that sometimes it comes with the territory. But believe me, it's not easy to see your family subjected to hateful accusations and ridicule, all because the Democratic Party wants to defeat me by whatever means it can.

Through it all I've maintained my dignity. My only response has been to ask my opponent for his positions on the war, homeland security, Social Security reform, tax reform, tax cuts, tax hikes, economic growth, Medicare reform...

...and his answer? Silence. No plans. No solutions. No answers. Just more attacks, through such characters as Al Gore, John Edwards, John Kerry and, of course, Howard Dean.

It couldn't be any plainer. The Democrats on the left want a rubber-stamp for the ultra-liberal policies they want to inflict on you and your family.

And the only sure, true way I have of countering the lefts onslaught is to take my message straight to the voters and by-pass the media. Only by using television, radio, newspapers, websites, billboards - every media possible, really - will I be able to win this election.

Will you help me today? I'm asking you for a contribution of $25, $35, $50, $100, or even $1,000 if possible to Santorum 2006.

I truly appreciate all you've done for our party because it does make a difference. Thank you and may God bless you and your family.

Sincerely,

Rick Santorum
United States Senator

P.S. I hope you see how my Senate race really will have an impact on the direction our precious America takes. Your taxes, your security, the sovereignty of our nation.. all are at stake. So I'm asking you, a dedicated Republican, to help me today. If you can make a contribution of $25, $35, $50, $100 or even $1,000 today it would be a tremendous lift for us. Thank you again.

Paid for by Santorum 2006

2. That, along with "we must cut spending"! I think this is the joke
of the day! They had 10 years to reduce spending and didn't, but expect people to believe it THIS TIME????

6. BREAKS?
"There is little argument that we've got to put the breaks on spending."

Please tell me his writers know about "brakes." Shades of the "misunderestimated" Shrub.
:dunce:

9. I just visited the Newsmax web site and signed up for emails.
I don't remember what info they asked for because it was over a year ago, but I think it was nly my email address.

Some of the info they send is pretty funny, and getting more desperate all the time!

4. Written and sent out so quickly, they didn't have time for spell check.
"There is little argument that we've got to put the breaks on spending."

Shouldn't that be "brakes"?

Desperation stinks, doesn't it Rick?

10. Spell check would pass that spelling...
...it's the concept of homophones they seem not to grasp.... (and "homophone" is so close to "homophobe" I just can't believe it's foreign to them!)

...GIVE the breaks on spending (...to our large corporate contributors)!

7. Bill Clinton's massive tax hikes??
Well I don't know about anyone else, but the total percentage of my income that went toward all taxes (federal state and local) was less under Clinton than it is now.

8. "the sovereignty of our nation"...
...is at stake???

Wow, who knew that one Senatorial race had such high stakes?

Boggles the mind, it does.

I guess the other guy is running on the "what do we need sovereignty for anyway?" platform...

20. So, if NAFTA gave away our sovereignty...
...then Santorum and all of the other Republics must have been against it -- right?

14. "seize control of the United States Senate"
Why do they always make it sound like an insurrection or a coup?

This is an election, bonehead.

The only things that are being "seized" are GOP politicians' financial records.

16. "Radical left???"
From everything I know about most Democrats in general, and Casey in particular, "radical left" is hardly the term I'd use!

*Your taxes, your security, the sovereignty of our nation.. all are at stake.*

So he's implying that the Democrats would threaten America's sovereignty? Who is he suggesting would take over? Ridiculous!

Santorum is a right-wing NUTTER. I hope you can get rid of him.
