We Need Gas Money

Drop $3 on Nader/Gonzalez now.

http://www.officialnaderstore.com/

As you read this, Ralph Nader and the Nader Road Team are barnstorming across the Midwest.

Sweeping through Iowa, Kansas and the Dakotas.

Driving more than 1,000 miles in two days.

Leading the only true opposition left in this country.

The only true opposition to corporate control and domination.

So, help us pay the gas bill now.

 

We’re in the last days of our $250,000 fundraising drive.

Already today, you’ve given $15,000.

We need another $15,000 tonight to make it to $200,000.

So, we need 5,000 of you, our loyal supporters, to donate $3 each.

 

And we’ll have a shot to meet our goal tomorrow.

(We raised close to $40,000 in one day last month. No reason we can’t do it again tomorrow.)

But we need a chance.

So, pay our gas bill now.

 

And get us to 200,000 by midnight tonight.

As you know, we have yet to miss a fundraising deadline.

And we don’t plan to now.

After buying us a gallon of gas, listen to Ralph from this morning on NPR. Click here to listen.

Then read the Associated Press story that ran earlier today.

By the way, the video featuring Jason Kafoury, our National Campaign Coordinator, is zooming up the Youtube charts. It’s holding steady at number one in YouTube’s activism category.

In case you missed it, here it is.

Okay, let’s bump it up to $200,000.

Donate whatever you can afford to the only true political opposition left in these United States.

Let’s meet this deadline.

Onward to November

The Nader Team

PS: If you donate $100 or more now, we will send you an autographed copy of Ralph’s classic — The Seventeen Traditions (HarperCollins 2007). The 150-page hardcover book details the seventeen traditions that Ralph grew up with and is the closest thing so far to a Ralph Nader autobiography. So, don’t miss out on this limited edition offer. (This offer ends October 12 at 11:59 p.m.)

 

 

 

Radio Ads: Now or Never

October 10, 2008

http://www.votenader.org

http://www.officialnaderstore.com

This morning, as markets around the world are crashing, Nader/Gonzalez is on the rise.

http://www.votenader.org/

And we need your help right now.

Here’s why:

We have the chance over the next month to run inexpensive radio ads in battleground states all across this country.

To expose The Bailout Boys — Obama and McCain.

And to let the American people know that on November 4, they have a choice.

The people’s candidate — Independent Ralph Nader.

The man who stood against the bailout of Wall Street crooks.

And for regulation that would have prevented the current crisis.

Here’s the problem:

We want to run the radio ads from October 21 to Election Day — November 4.

In thirty markets all across this country.

Our radio guy tells us he needs the money by Monday to be able to reserve air time for the last two weeks before the election.

Throughout this year, when we have asked, you have delivered.

Thanks to you, we have not missed one fundraising deadline this year.

Now, we are in a corner.

Over the past week, you have donated $130,000 to our October Surprise Fund.

On our way to our goal of $250,000 by Sunday midnight.

Now, to reach our goal, we need 12,000 of you — our loyal supporters — to kick in $10 each.

 

We know that many of you have dug deep for the past seven months.

So, after you hit that contribute button, pick up the phone and get your friends, relatives, neighbors — who are angry about the bailout and looking for an independent outlet — to support the one candidate who has stood with the American people against the corporate criminal elite on Wall street.

To give you a sneak preview, we have cut a demo tape.

Listen here

If we reach our goal by Sunday night, we will be professionally producing a version of this demo ad and getting it out to our radio guy in Los Angeles.

As the Dow collapses, the Nader/Gonzalez shift the power platform is on the rise.

So, donate now — whatever you can afford — $10, $100, $1000 — up to the legal limit of $2,300.

Help us fund our nationwide radio ad buy.

Inform the American public.

There is a choice on November 4.

Vote Independent.

Vote Ralph Nader for President.

Onward to November.

On the Road with Ralph: Latest Videos and Photos

October 9, 2008

Media Team member Karen Kilroy and her son Brock with Ralph Nader

They’re charging through airports, eating up highways, setting up, taking down, rushing ahead, and framing the shot. They capture video of real people asking questions at events, not just the candidates.

And, of course, they get Ralph Nader’s and Matt Gonzalez’s responses out to you and to the world. The media team you helped to build with your donations is hitting its stride.

Check out recent photos at http://flickr.com/photos/votenader.

The Nader Media Team has some new videos up on YouTube that we’d like you to watch and send around to your friends.

Remember, you made these possible!

First, check out the Vice-Presidential Debate video that will give you an entertaining way of showing your friends and family how Matt Gonzalez would’ve handled Joe Biden and Sarah Palin.

On the road with Nader Media Team members Nick Bygon and John Harrison

Then, watch videos from Ralph’s recent swing through New England:

Nader on becoming civically active, before a great crowd in Burlington, Vermont.

and

On the passage of the Bailout Bill.

It’s very important, as November draws near, that we all try and expand our social circles. Many people have never seen Ralph or Matt speak and video is the next best thing to a live event.

Please choose the videos you like, and send them to your e-mail list. Post links to them on blogs that you read, or on your own blog. Your contributions continue to make our video production possible and we are still ramping up to our best stuff. Stay tuned by subscribing to our YouTube channel.

Onward to November.

Protest Gallup’s Exclusion of Nader

October 7, 2008

http://www.votenader.org

http://www.officialnaderstore.com

Donate $5 to Nader/Gonzalez now.

Why?

To protest the sheer arrogance of the Gallup Organization.

In a recent WSJ/NBC national poll, Ralph Nader pulls 5 percent.

Contrast that to the most recent Gallup national poll, where Nader polls a fraction of one percent.

Why the big difference?

Answer: Gallup, the 800-pound gorilla of the polling world, doesn’t list Ralph Nader as one of the Presidential candidates in the primary polling question.

Are you kidding me?

No.

We are not kidding you.

And guess who the Commission on Presidential Debates depends on to do its polling to see which Presidential candidates get to debate before tens of millions of Americans tonight in Nashville?

You guessed it: Gallup.

I called Frank Newport. (pictured above)

Newport is the editor-in-chief at Gallup.

I asked Newport:

Is there an objective standard you use to keep Ralph off your primary polling question?

"No," Newport said.

"We use our internal judgment to decide."

Whoa!

Gallup’s "internal judgment" keeps Ralph Nader out of their polling.

So, I tried again.

Any ballpark levels of support Gallup looks to as a threshold?

"No," Newport said.

Again, it was just subject to unidentified "internal judgment criteria."

What a total crock of you know what.

There are some polling agencies — such as Ipsos/McClatchey and CNN/Opinion Research Corp. — that include all the major third party candidates.

Not Gallup.

So, we propose two ways to protest Gallup’s arrogance in keeping Ralph Nader out of the Gallup polls, thereby denying him the chance of having a chance to debate McCain and Obama.

Protest method number one:

Donate $5, $10, $100 — whatever you can afford — up to the legal limit of $2,300 — to Nader/Gonzalez now.

 

The stronger we become in October, the more difficult it will be for even Gallup’s "internal judgment" to ignore us.

We’re in the middle of our October Surprise fundraising drive.

And we need to reach $250,000 by the end of the week.

So, if you haven’t donated yet, hit that there contribute button now.

 

Protest method number two:

Call up Gallup’s Frank Newport.

Give him a piece of your mind.

Nader/Gonzalez is on more state ballots (45) than any other independent or third party candidate.

And we’re polling five percent and higher in other polls nationwide.

Why is Gallup keeping Ralph Nader out of their polls?

What standards does Gallup use to determine who is included in their Presidential polls?

You can call Newport at: 609-924-9600

Or you can e-mail him directly at: frank_newport@gallup.com

Thank you for your ongoing activism and support.

Onward to November.
