An Open Letter To Iowans

Dear Iowans,
Compliments of the season.

We thank God for keeping us alive and well and we are glad and grateful for His goodness and mercies.

I am an African artist, poet and blogger who is an American at heart.

As you look forward to the Presidential Caucus in January, remember your motto:
"Our liberties we prize and our rights
we will maintain".

I am proud of the Iowa voters for supporting Bill Clinton in 1992 and in 1996 and for voting for Al Gore in 2000.
Yes, you voted for George W. Bush in 2004 and it shows that you are indeed democratic and patriotic.

I want to share the letter that Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton sent to me on Monday with you and ask you to give her all your support all the way.

"Dear Orikinla,

It has been 316 days since we started this journey.

I've been working my heart out from the very first day of this campaign, because your support deserves nothing less. And you've been right there with me, every step of the way.

In Iowa, we're in a dead heat. There are only 31 days until the Iowa caucuses, the first contest in the race to the White House. With so little time to go, what you and I do in the coming weeks will decide this race.

We are setting fundraising goals on a week-to-week basis, and this week we must raise $1.25 million to ensure we have the resources we need to win. You've already done so much to help me during the past 316 days. Will you contribute today so I can win the Democratic nomination for president?

Think about what we can accomplish if we win. We can finally end the war in Iraq. We can make sure every last man, woman, and child in this country has affordable, quality health care. We can put our economy back to work for the middle class again, and create millions of new jobs. We can make stopping global warming a real priority, and achieve true energy independence.

We can achieve these together, but not if we don't pass the test we're facing now.

I'm asking you personally, from me to you, Orikinla -- with 31 days left, help me win these races so we can take on the Republican nominee in November 2008, win the White House, and change America.

With the Democratic nomination hinging on our actions over these next few weeks, we cannot take anything for granted or let up for a moment between now and then. That is why I am turning to you now. We have a goal to reach: $1.25 million by midnight Friday.

Contribute to help us reach our goal and win.

It means so much to me to know you're on my side. I promise to continue working as hard as I can to win every last vote.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you do.


Hillary Rodham Clinton

Iowans, do your best to give all your support to Hillary Rodham Clinton and let us give God all the glory for the victory.

Cheers and God bless you always.

Yours faithfully,
Orikinla Osinachi
