SIMPLE ENOUGH: Vote for the Nader-Gonzalez Ticket on November 4, 2008.
And you still can do the following:
AA - Donate to the Nader-Gonzalez '08 Campaign
Simply, open your checkbook, write in the amount of your own choosing up to $2,300 (or $4,600 for a couple) made to "Nader for President 2008," and mail it to:
"Nader for President 2008"
P.O. Box 34103
Washington, D.C. 20043.
Or, if you like plastic, you go to this secure site where you can make a contribution on line by credit card.
Just do it.
BB - Be involved
An overwhelming amount of people are dissatisfied with our politics as usual (over 80 percent) -- people from all walks of life, Democrats, Independents, Republicans. If you are one of those but think of going to the polls to cast your vote for the Democratic candidate because you do not like the Republican one, or cast your vote for the Republican candidate because you do not like the Democratic one, yet disagree with both and keep loathing the system that forces you into such a no-win conundrum, then visit votepact.org. There are many ways to skin a cat. Nader-Gonzalez is the most creative, and non-violent way of them all.
Remember, nothing will change if you don't demand change. To demand is not synonymous with ranting about and against the system. It's about offering a different future. It takes time and effort. Leave your computer screen and drive, or walk to your neighbors' homes. Present your views with respect and passion. Bring them in. Don't tell them they are idiots for going with the duopoly (they aren't). Offer them an alternative.
Thanks for your attention and involvement!
