From Jill Stein for President:
I am very grateful for your response over the past few days. You have pushed our Green Party presidential campaign to the brink of success in our quest for federal matching funds. Eight states have qualified for matching funds in the past 5 days. Now, with only 24 hours to go, everything is hinging on finishing the job in Arizona, Connecticut and the District of Columbia.
If we can succeed in these three states (for Greens, DC will always be a state), then you will be assured of having a voice in the 2012 presidential race. We challenge the pro-war, pro-Wall Street, anti-democratic rhetoric of the establishment candidates and present a vision of a peaceful, just, secure green future that creates a livable world for all people. For the past four years, we’ve been pushing forward for affordable health care, an end to the wars, immigrant rights, solving the student debt problem, sensible drug policies, and protection of our civil liberties. Now, with just one final push, we can bring all those issues into the presidential arena.
But it all hinges on what happens in three critical states in the next 24 hours. Here is what remains to be raised from those states:
- District of Columbia: $2,291
- Arizona: $1,465
- Connecticut: $1,249
Raising these small amounts will result in a grant from the federal government that will almost DOUBLE the contributions that everyone across the country has already made. And the doubling will continue for months to come. This will be a watershed event for independent politics in America.
There are two things we hope you will do RIGHT NOW to ensure our success:
First, if you’ve donated to my campaign before, please consider making an additional donation of at least half what you gave before. Any amount up to $250 per person will count toward our qualifying goals – http://www.jillstein.org/donate - (If you’ve already given $250, consider asking your friends or family members to make a donation).
Second, send the appeal below to 10 of your friends in the critical three states. Or mail it to any suitable email lists to which you subscribe. Post it on your Facebook page. This forwarding of the message is extremely important.
On Sunday, we will announce the results of our effort. Today, all eyes are on Arizona, Connecticut, and DC. Let’s make it happen!
PLEASE FORWARD THE EMAIL BELOW TO YOUR FRIENDS Read the rest of this entry »
