Jill Stein: “We have just 12 hours”
September 6, 2012 in Presidential Campaign
From Jill Stein for President:
In just twelve hours, at midnight tonight, the 2012 presidential primary season ends, and the general election begins. We didn’t decide this calendar, the federal government did. But it applies to us too, and it means that we need you to make a donation before midnight tonight.
Help us keep our primary campaign out of debt. Help us launch into the general election season with momentum! Please donate now.
Cheri and I are in the streets of Charlotte right now with the March for Our Lives, organized by the Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign. Although it’s been hot and rainy here, there are many wonderful people from all parts of the Americas in the streets with us.
We know that inside the corporate-sponsored convention hall, there are many glowing speeches and lots of well-funded spin. But out here, the reality remains that nearly half of Americans live in or near poverty.
The vast majority of young people don’t have health care, are shut out of college, or are weighed down by the chains of student debt, and nearly a quarter of our young adults are unemployed. Meanwhile, the climate crisis is getting worse by the month, and the White House is doing nothing meaningful to reverse it.
Cheri and I are out here with the marchers, and we’re talking with the media. We’ll be on the national Moyers show tomorrow night. But we need your donations, right now, in the next 12 hours, to put our TV ads on the air so that we can continue to crash the airwaves with our message that there is a solution — a Green New Deal — that a Green president will deliver. Please donate now.
And please remember — we only get matching funds for donations to our primary campaign, not for the general election. So donate now to double your money, up to $250.
