Impeach Team Day 2

By       (Page 1 of 1 pages)   No comments
Message The Pen


Dear Friends and Activists,

Thanks to your donations two candidates working together in California, Democrats Bob McCloskey (29th Congressional District) and Charles Coleman, Jr. (28th Congressional), this morning started running a banner at the top of the Los Angeles Times daily news email to their web subscribers, calling on others to join them in standing up for impeachment now.

Thanks to your donations, this week Air America radio will feature links to the new Impeach Team action pages in their own weekly mailing, and they have already purchased their first block of streaming "call to action" audio spots on Air America.

What these brave candidates are doing is not just promoting names to vote for, they are promoting an ISSUE, and mobilizing people around that issue in a way that will have lasting positive movement value. We can do alerts to our own participants of course, but how much better is it to apply our energies to recruit OTHER people to their good sense, who were not already speaking out?

We are off to such a good start with this campaign, but we need to do so much more in the next 2 weeks. We need to help them to expand their presence in the Los Angeles market with targeted mailings. We need to get them on the local Air America affiliate as well, to accelerate the people's impeachment movement.

If you have already made a donation to running these "call to action" ads, or if you are already doing all else you can, we thank you again. Otherwise please read on to understand why this effort is so important.



We can agree that the biggest problem the Democrats have is being perceived as not standing up for their own declared principles. Regardless of how corrupt and incompetent the Republicans show themselves to be (though that might alone result in seat gains), full advantage cannot be taken while Democratic incumbents fail to stand as a courageous minority. The only way to REALLY turn this around is by demonstrating that we are fighting for the people now, and not just waiting to get elected to do so.

If we can get enough attention for either of these first two members of the Impeach Team so that they win in their primaries against their "vote along with the war" opponents, it will send a powerful message to all other Democrats, incumbents and not, that the people are finally ready to demand policy change, and will turn out and vote for those who will stand strong. That is why they need every donation you can afford to give them.
