In a surprising move given her reputation as a political outsider, Sarah Palin is helping the Republican National Committee raise money ahead of November's elections.

Palin has attached her name to a letter and survey being mailed to RNC donors soliciting contributions for the committee's Victory 2010 program, a nationwide get-out-the-vote effort.

"Millions of Americans are expressing their frustration with the state of our government. I join them and seek to return our country to greatness," reads the letter, obtained by CNN Friday.

"To accomplish this, working within our two party system, I join the RNC – the political home for "Commonsense Conservatives" who want to re-take governance – and I ask you to join me," the former Republican vice presidential nominee's letter continues. "Let's bring our new brand of Reagan conservatism to our party and the country!"

    Let both parties in the House and Senate vote to cut their August vacation short, cut their own retirement pay, and cut their own wages.
    Put their money where their mouth is..start cutting at the top and let the money trickle down to the poor class. We can't even afford food
    these days.
