Nader: Open the Debates
From the Nader campaign’s email newsletter:
Aug 8, 2008
This is it.
Our accounting team has decided to cut off our primary season online donations this Monday.
This means no more matching funds from the federal government after this weekend.
If you’ve already contributed, but have yet to donate up to $250, then this is your last chance to bump it up to $250 and have it matched.
If you haven’t donated at all this is your last chance to have your contribution — up to $250 — doubled.
If you give $50, the government will give us $50.
If you give $100, the government will give us $100.
If you give us $250, the government will give us $250.
But we are running out of time.
We need you to do two things now:
And two — make your donations double by giving up to $250 right now.
Our green eye shade people tell us it’s time to shift to the general campaign.
It’s time for Ralph to mount his 50 state campaign. It’s time to mount an effort to get Ralph in the debates.
And whatever our green eye shade people tell us to do, we do.
So, here we go.
Time is running out.
And double your money, double our possibilities.
And after you hit contribute, sit back and watch Ralph Nader later today on C-Span.
Ralph will be discussing his plan to empty the prisons of non-violent drug offenders and fill them with corporate criminals at a 10am EST press conference. (Click here for C-span daily TV schedule.)
And remember, for a contribution of $100 or more to our campaign between now and Sunday night, we will send to you an autographed copy of Ralph’s rousing call to arms — Civic Arousal and a copy of No Debate — the classic expose of the corporate control of the Presidential debates.
So, donate now.
We’ll ship you the books.
And sit back and watch Ralph on C-Span.
Together, we are making a difference.
The Nader Team
PS: What you did yesterday was nothing short of remarkable. We raised close to $15,000 yesterday on our way to our $100,000 goal by Sunday night. We’re only $25,000 away. Thank you. Now, we’re real close. Let’s push it over the top.
