I was the only member of Congress to vote against the war in Afghanistan. I am the co-founder of the "Out of Iraq" Caucus.
All of my life I have worked for peace and justice. Congressman Grayson has worked for peace and justice. Watch, and contribute to our Peace Party:
Congressman Grayson is from a Republican-leaning district, yet he supports peace. Please help to re-elect Congressman Grayson. He has a conscience, and we need members of Congress with a conscience. Support Congressman Grayson by going to his website, CongressmanwithGuts.com.
Rep. Barbara Lee
I'd like to invite you to a Peace Party with our host Alan Grayson. Alan Grayson is a strong, important and critical voice for peace in the House of Representatives. Watch my video and contribute to the peace party:
Alan is out there day after day speaking truth to power. Day after day, talking about the tragedy that is this Afghanistan war. Day after day, making it clear to everyone that this is a war that is not making us safer and is costing us billions of dollars.
I urge to go there to support Alan's fight. He's been out there speaking about the cost of war. Speaking about civilian casualties, speaking about the fact that this is a tragic policy for our national security.
Let's keep Grayson in Congress. Let's do it for our country. Let's do it for the people of Afghanistan. And, let's do it for everything we all believe in.
Thank you and thank you Congressman Grayson. Join us at his Peace Party at CongressmanWithGuts.com
Director, Rethink Afghanistan
In 1967-1968 I went to Vietnam as a combat infantryman. I wanted to go, I volunteered, and I saw a good deal of action. I didn't understand exactly what I was fighting for. Certainly it took me years to understand. Now I do.
I support Congressman Alan Grayson because he supports peace -- and I'm asking for you to support him, and join our movement for peace.
I thought we had woken up from the nightmare of war, but we didn't. And we kept going back to wars in my lifetime. The Cold War became the War against Terrorism, and it continues to this day. Two wars in Iraq, one in Afghanistan, and possible sanctions in Iran.
The world is becoming more and more militarized. We need clarity. Congressman Grayson speaks out for the people who are trying to analyze and see through this morass. And he is a strong voice, he doesn't back down, he doesn't change his tune. He says it no matter what pressure is brought to bear on him, he sticks to his points, and his guns.
He's the kind of guy I like, because he's not just a warrior, but a warrior for peace. Please go to www.CongressmanWithGuts.com and join our movement for peace.
Alan Grayson is a healthcare hero. He called the Republicans out on their obstructionism. He told Americans that the Republicans health care plan was Don't Get Sick, and if you do, Die Quickly. Grayson changed the debate and put the Republicans on the defensive right before the first House vote in November.
There's more. He built a movement around the public option that helped keep the public option debate alive to this day. In a matter of hours, his Public Option Act opening Medicare to all Americans received over 80 cosponsors in the House and over 50,000 citizen cosponsors at WeWantMedicare.com.
Alan Grayson is standing up for us. Now, the progressive movement needs to stand up for him. Contribute $50 toward Alan Grayson's March 27th Money Bomb at CongressmanWithGuts.com.
Alan Grayson is the number #1 target of the Republican Party. They want to silence his voice. They want nothing more than to replace him with some shill who will do the bidding of insurance and Wall Street lobbyists.
We can't let that happen. Already, over 1,500 people have contributed over $45,000. I believe in the power of people. Join the cause. $50 from Americans who want Democrats with spines can turn into $500,000 overnight.
Can you join thousands of others and chip in for a Congressman with Guts? Pledge $50 now.
Thanks so much for your time and your support of this health care hero.
Michael Moore is a force. He is the conscience of Middle America. He is Mark Twain with a camera. And he has something he wants to say to you.
He's right. Both "Goldman" and "Sachs" will be coming after us. So will Sarah Palin. Her tea party band of thugs already put up one of her undead minions to run against me. And, as Debbie Wasserman Schultz noted yesterday, we're the official number one target of the Republican Party for 2010.
This is it. Tomorrow is the money bomb. I believe in the power of people. I believe in the power of YOU. Over 9,100 people have pledged to give to my campaign, tomorrow. Can you help us get to 10,000? I know we can with your help. Watch Michael Moore and pledge your support.
I am asking you to help a leader, a visionary, and a friend.
Alan Grayson and I have one thing in common; we tell it like it is. Sometimes it sounds pointed and direct. Sometimes it catches people off guard. But it is better to be direct so everyone understands the serious consequences of our actions.
Many thanked me for speaking out candidly about the Terri Schiavo episode. And it is time we thank Alan Grayson for his candor, and his open and honest arguments on health care reform.
Alan is a passionate fighter who will never, ever be afraid to voice his opinion on the issues that affect all our lives.
So now I'm asking you to do something for all of us. Please contribute to Alan's reelection campaign, at www.CongressmanWithGuts.com.
I am a Floridian and I know Alan's district well. It was specifically drawn for a Republican, and the Republicans were very upset that they lost it in 2008. They will do anything to take it back. Well, it doesn't belong to them; it belongs to the people, and the people elected Alan Grayson.
I am also the Vice Chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. The Executive Director of the National Republican Congressional Committee says that Alan is the Republican's #1 target in 2010.
We need Alan Grayson in Congress. The people of Florida's 8th Congressional District need Alan Grayson in Congress. So I'm asking you to help. We have to make his March 27th online "moneybomb" work.
Let's do it!

Tomorrow, March 13th is my dad Alan Grayson's 52nd birthday. If you appreciate all he's doing to stand up for all of us, I encourage you to give a gift of $52 to his campaign.
This week, Dad called for a vote on the public option. He introduced a super-simple four-page bill to let all Americans buy into Medicare. That bill already attracted 50 cosponsors, and thousands of supporters at WeWantMedicare.com.
Day in and day out, Dad is fighting to help ordinary people. He's got a good heart. Please wish him a happy 52nd birthday with a $52 contribution.
Hi - Skye Grayson here. My Daddy is Congressman Alan Grayson. He gave me a special birthday gift to me when I was 10 years old. He told me why my name is Skye.
Before I was born, Daddy read a touching oral history about the children of American servicemen and Vietnamese mothers. These children grew up in Vietnam after 1975. They were living symbols of a hated war. Many of them were beaten and cursed, just for being who they are.
One of them was able to leave Vietnam and go to America while she was a young girl. The author asked her, "what do you like most about America?" She answered, "the sky." He said, "why? There was a sky in Vietnam." She replied, "I know. But I was so ashamed of myself, I never looked up."
Like that girl, I'm the child of an American father (Congressman Daddy) and an Asian mother. On my 10th birthday, Daddy told me that he named me Skye to remind me that no matter what happens to me in life, and no matter what other people think about me, I should always have the courage to hold my head high, and look up.
And I do have that courage. Thank you, Daddy.
