The Republican Party of Texas Announces the Grassroots Club
Dear Texas Republican,
During my campaign for Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas, I pledged to ensure that the RPT would be a better steward of the money donated by our contributors.
To accomplish this goal, we are implementing a new way of raising money for the State Party that will greatly reduce costs, so that more of your money will actually go where it is intended - to the work of electing Republicans in November.
Today, we would like to ask you to be part of the launch of this program. Join with us and sign up for the new “Grassroots Club" for only $8.25 a month. Click here to visit the website and sign up at www.GrassrootsClub.com.
This program is very simple to use, and it will save both the Party and you time and money. Instead of using annoying telemarketing calls and direct mail solicitations, which cost the State Party a large majority of funds raised from their use, we've come up with an alternative. Our new contribution system allows you to sign up with your credit card for an automatic donation each month, which you can cancel at any time.
Through the Grassroots Club, we are seeking to empower the grassroots - this program will ensure that the Party is not dependent on corporate donations or large contributors so that no one person can compromise our principles and electoral success.
The Grassroots Club is designed to emphasize that our Republican supporters have as much impact on the Party as anybody else, and will ensure that the Party is acting as a better steward of your money by raising it more efficiently. We have a vendor that will administer the program for an overall cost of 5% - meaning that 95% of your monthly donation will go directly to helping to promote our values, our principles, and our Republican candidates across the Lone Star State.
What we are asking costs less than the price of a movie, less than a drink and hot dog at the ballgame, and less than two fast food lunches. Every day, our troops in the field in Iraq and Afghanistan go without attending movies or baseball games or eating at McDonald's in the defense of our country. Won't you agree to make an even smaller sacrifice by giving up some small luxury per month to help fund our Republican Party and defend our freedoms at home that our brave young men and women are fighting for overseas?
In considering this decision to pledge your financial support, please know that we ask because this is a critical moment for the future of Texas and the United States. Our country is standing on a dangerous precipice of financial ruin, and every day we see more reasons to believe that America will rely on Texas, and Texas Republicans to lead the way back from the brink of disaster. We must unify our support during these crucial times - join with us today!
P.S. - I would like to maximize our grassroots block-by-block organizational effort during the last month of this election. But I can't do it without your help! Please sign-up for the "Grassroots Club" before October 1st if at all possible.
