All of us.
You, me, and everyone we know.
Eight years is enough. Eight weeks was enough.
We have a chance to redeem this country, to prove we're better than this, that which Bush has made of us.
McCain is right about one thing: Barack Obama is the most liberal senator in the United States Senate. More liberal than Ted Kennedy. When was the last time you had a chance to send the MOST liberal senator to the White House? Trust me, it won't happen again in our lifetime.
Every vote is critical -- even in hard red states like Texas and Alabama; and true blue ones like New York, California and Michigan. Tomorrow, we need to create a massive popular vote that will give Obama a stunning mandate to return this country to we, the people. Let's write one for the history books and rocket Obama into the White House.
Expect trouble tomorrow. Stand your ground. Don't let some clerk turn you away. Make noise. Call the media if they won't let you vote. Let the Obama camp know. Check out his Voter Protection Center. Know where your polling place is. Be careful inside the voting booth. The ballot still reads like a Sudoku puzzle. Be prepared for long lines. That's ok, you know how to bring the party with you! Make new friends. Plot your local revolution. The 28-year rule of Republicans (and Democrats who act like Republicans) is over. The Reagan Era dies tomorrow night. My God, I truly thought it would never end.
There are over a million of you on my list. Each of you know 5 or 10 people who may not vote. Offer to drive them to the polls. If they live across the country, call them and tell them how much it means to you that they go vote for Obama. Take your co-workers to lunch -- and to vote. Be creative. Come up with ways to convince the undecided to get their decided on and go vote. Make it fun. Lead the horse to water.
60 seats in the Senate!
30-seat increase in the House!
It's in your hands. The Promised Land.

A Liberal Clarification ...from Michael Moore
Thanks for all the great responses to my letter this morning, but I wanted to clear up one thing. I quoted McCain's comment about Obama being the "most liberal senator," but left off the quote marks around his statement -- and throughout the rest of the paragraph which would have indicated my sarcasm at such a statement. Obama is not the most liberal senator in the Senate. That distinction should go to either his fellow senator from Illinois, Dick Durbin, or to Bernie Sanders, the democratic socialist from Vermont. Or a bunch of others.
McCain just used that old chestnut 'cause he thought he could scare people away from Obama. He and his party have thrown a lot of terms at him. And yet, not once have I heard Senator Obama attack John McCain in a personal way. Nor does he try to manipulate people with fear.
If he wins tomorrow, it will have much to do with who he is, not just as a politician, but as a human being.
And I personally know at least a dozen Republicans who are going to vote for Obama. They've simply had it. Welcome, friends.
