Got Tax Rebate?
We need $50,000 to get Nader/Gonzalez on the ballot in Illinois.
Land of Lincoln.
Where Ralph Nader was bumped off the ballot in 2004 by the state’s Democratic machine.
Where already in 2008, state Democratic machine operatives are making threats about keeping us off again.
But this year, we’re not going to take no for an answer.
So, here’s the idea:
Tax your tax rebate check.
Donate the other half to Nader/Gonzalez.
And help us climb this mountain.
It’s not going to be easy to get Nader/Gonzalez on the ballot in Illinois.
We need 50,000 signatures.
We need to hand them by June 26, 2008.
And the state Democratic machine is going do everything it can keep us off the ballot.
Already we have nine energetic petitioners on the ground throughout the state.
And we’ve sent in three more of our top road-trippers - Albert Marino, Joshua Tucker and Jordan Romanus.
They are averaging 150 to 220 signatures a day - each. (Trust us, this is spectacular.)
All in all, our Illinois Nader Raiders - in a short period of time - have collected about 10,000 signatures.
We’re on our way.
But we need your help to get us there.
So, two things.
Take your tax rebate check.
And donate half to Nader/Gonzalez.
And two, if you would like to get some fresh air and exercise in Illinois,
And help us collect signatures -
Contact our Illinois state coordinator Christina Tobin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With your help, we will get on the ballot in Illinois.
Thank you for your support.
