Dear Friends and Supporters:
As you may already be aware, I've applied for a Democracy for America scholarship to attend this year's Netroots Nation Convention in MN this June. In order to win the scholarship, I must demonstrate a certain level of grassroots support and, to do that, I need to ask you to help me out by clicking on the DFA logo and voting for me:
It'll only take a moment of your time and your votes will be greatly appreciated! Since I've already made my pitch to you time and time again, and since anyone reading this already likely already knows who I am and what I'm about, please allow me to share with you the pitch made on my behalf by the folks at GOPHypocrisy (a Facebook page you should definitely start following if you aren't already):
"Robert Applebaum is one of the most active advocates of the Progressive persuasion we know. Please vote for him to represent us at Netroots Nation!!! We need a few hundred votes to move him to the top. The current vote leader has 196 votes and Robert has 106. We know we can count on GOPHypocrisy to support one of their own!! Please vote. (His abbreviated stump speech is below.)"
"Robert: "If I win, I will be representing the interests of the disappearing middle class - spreading my message of student loan forgiveness as a means of economic stimulus in addition to reminding anyone who needs a refresher course in basic economics that the last 30 years of disaster capitalism has decimated the middle class and that anyone supporting the GOP who isn't already a millionaire is an idiot, voting against his or her own economic interests.""
"The long version of Robert's stump speech can be eloquently found on this blog: http://www.robertapplebaum.com/. And his FB page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Robert-Applebaum/54158215949. And his radio show: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/shared_sacrifice/2011/03/08/robert-applebaum-on-shared-sacrifice."

I very much appreciate the kind words of support from my friends at GOPHypocrisy and I hope you'll take just a moment of your time to click on this link and vote for me!
Thank you again for your continued support and thank you in advance for your votes!

Robert Applebaum is one of the most energetic advocates of the Modernized persuasion we cognise. Please franchise for him to equal us at Netroots Nation!!! We condition a few centred votes to change him to the top.
I cant understand why your trying to have all this debt forgiven.... its not the issue of the public, its an issue of those who chose to get a higher education! Thats an obligation they have to live with. The real issue should the lack of well paying jobs that allow them to repay that obligation! Please stop trying to re-focus the issue here its wrong and it appeals only to the lucky young who received that education.
the issue is JOBS THAT WENT OVERSEAS!!!.
If you really hope to accomplish something here then advocate boycotting 2 or 3 big companies that packed up those jobs and gave then to india and mexico or china....
China theres an issue we need to talk about...
Hurting these companies on the bottom line is what will get their attention!
