3 easy ways to support the campaign today

First of all, thanks to everyone who has volunteered, donated, and helped spread the word up to this point! We’re definitely gaining momentum!

As you know, this battle is far from over and we need all hands on deck every single day to make a dent in the corporate machine known as the United States presidential campaign.

So, let’s dive in with three easy ways to help today:

1. Make sure you’re connected to us! Since we don’t have a multi-million dollar budget for paid advertising like our competitors, social media is one of our best options for raising awareness. And, if you saw the impact it had for the Howard Dean campaign, the revolution in Egypt, and even the protests in Madison - you know it’s an imperative force for advocacy. We need all of you with us everywhere you can be!

(FYI - There’s not much happening on those latter two platforms yet, but we’re hoping to ramp things up in the coming months!)

2. Help us get media coverage on three target outlets: The Colbert Report, The Daily Show, and The Rachel Maddow Show. These three sources could help us reach millions of sympathetic voters!

On Facebook - Leave a message on their walls, privately message them, comment on their posts - whatever it takes to get their attention (respectfully please!):

On Twitter (copy and paste - or create your own tweet!):

  • PLEASE @StephenAtHome - have #Green Party #POTUS candidate @jillstein2012 on the @Colbertreport!
  • Hey @TheDailyShow - how about having #Green Party #POTUS candidate @JillStein2012 on the show?
  • Hey @maddow - how about having #Green Party #POTUS candidate @JillStein2012 on the show?

Email:

colbertweb@gmail.com
Rachel@msnbc.com
guestpitch@thedailyshow.com

3. Donate! The Green Party is the only one that doesn't accept corporate donations. It makes these campaigns all the more challenging, but it also ensures we are only beholden to the people - you. Not Wall Street. Not the 1%. Every donation helps!

Thanks so much for your continued support! Together, we can reclaim democracy!!

I think one of the best ways is to help promote the unified, non-partisan petition to “open up the 2012 presidential debates”.

A group of us have been working across party lines to help get presidential candidates that have qualified and accepted our Federal Election Commission campaign matching funds into the presidential debates. Please visit http://openupthedebates.org/ , sign the petition ask your friends to ask their friends to do the same. Thank you.

Here’s something to ponder. A third party doesn’t need 271 electoral votes to win the presidency, it only needs 34% or 180 electors. If Jill could win these 12 states where she is already on the ballot, then she could be our next president! Here they are along with the number of electoral votes for each:
Ca 55
Or 7
WA 12
NY 29
MA 11
MD 10
NJ 14
MI 16
DC 3
NM 5
WI 10
MN 10

what’s constructive about criticism? -you’ve capped federal matching funds your on the ballot in most states-your gaining popularity by the day—that’s progress! no matter how you want to slice it.
