We Need To Pull Out All Stops To Keep Kucinich In Congress

We Need To Pull Out All Stops To Keep Kucinich In Congress

Despite the fact that he is the best candidate on just about every
issue, after being rudely shut out of the debates before his time
perhaps it was inevitable he would not be able to sustain a run for
president. But today we learned that there is a conspiracy of huge
corporations prepared to throw millions of dollars at trying to kick
our hero out of Congress altogether, by financing a troll primary
challenge. They are running smear ads in his district already and we
have to fight back now.

Fight Back Kucinich Donations:

IMPORTANT: Even if you have already given the legal limit to the
Kucinich presidential campaing, you can donate up to another $2,300
to his Congressional campaign above now.

They've done this before, when Kucinich stood up to the utility
special interests, and refused to sell Cleveland's power generating
resource. They forced his city into bankrupty, they hurt their own
city to force him out of office. We can't stand by and just let that
happen again. Kucinich is an irreplaceable advocate for all the
issues we are fighting for. This is a not just a race he is supposed
to win, it is a race we MUST win, and by a landslide. And we only
have weeks to do it.

We've already sent out upwards of a thousand of the special
commemorative edition Kucinich pocket constitutions, and more are
going out this week. So if you can make a donation of $100 or more,
Dennis wants to send you as a thank you gift one of these collector's
edition pocket constitutions for your very own, just like the one he
protects and defends every day.

There is no better investment we can make in the integrity of our
democracy than a Kucinich donation. Look at what Dennis has done with
his donations. He financed a recount in New Hampshire, which turned
up enough problems to inspire a new bill in Congress to provide
emergency paper ballot assistance to any jurisdiction that wants to
switch back to tamperproof paper. And we generated tens of thousands
of messages to Congress on that just last week.

Fight Back Kucinich Donations:

He uses his donations to get the truth out and to inspire people to
act on the issues we want ALL our members of Congress to stand for.
And the best way to do that is to show them how strongly we support
him. Because there can be no doubt, that taken together, his voting
record, and his leadership, stands head and shoulders about just
about any other member of Congress we've got.

Simply put, we need a hundred more like Dennis Kucinich. But first we
need to protect and defend the one we've got, to stand up for him,
just as he has dedicated his life to standing up for us.

And if you are so fortunate that you can make a donation of $1,000 or
more, Dennis will not only personally autograph your special pocket
constitution for you, he will send you a personal thank you letter to
go along with it.

We know there are many of our participants who have been hurt badly
by the economic debacle descended on us by the Cheney regime. We know
you are doing all you can by submitting every action page you can get
your hands on. But it also means that those of us who can make a
contribution need to do little extra now, because the money will be
so well spent in support of the progressive initiative.

Kucinich is under attack because he is having a real impact. Without
his raw courage, there would be no pending resolution for impeaching
Cheney in the House Judiciary Committee, gaining more and more
support every day. They desperate to shut him up.

That's not going to happen, with your help.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed
to be ours, and forward this alert as widely as possible.
