-- Vast numbers of voters are frustrated and angry! It's come down to Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump? Can this be happening? These are the two most unpopular candidates in the history of presidential elections!

Of course . . . there is an excellent alternative. But understandably voters are afraid of "throwing their vote away".

Here's the solution: We join together in a person-to-person pledge campaign, the "I'll vote for Jill if you will" initiative, supporting the presidential bid of Dr. Jill Stein. And together we'll elect the first female President of the United States, one who will do a phenomenal job of putting America back on track. Here's how . . .

Step 1: After you take the "I'll vote for Jill if you will" personal pledge, just let us know by officially signing the petition at one of the sites listed below. (The petition reads exactly as the pledge does. We are "petitioning" every registered voter in America to join with us in rejecting the anti-democratic charade the two-party system has become.)

Step 2: You find two other people who you respect and trust -- friend, neighbor, relative -- let them know about Jill Stein if they don't already, get them to take the "I'll vote for Jill if you will" pledge, and make sure they let us know, just as you did, by going to one of the listed sites below to sign the petition.

Step 3: These two people likewise will each solicit two others to take the pledge and add their names to the growing list of pledge takers. The new ones will each find two more.

Step 4: When and only when we reach our target of 50 million pledges, we will vote for Jill Stein. Why 50 million? Because 50 million voters will guarantee a victory by plurality for Jill, thus we will all know with absolute certainty we're not throwing our votes away, that indeed our votes will go toward electing a great president!

50 million may seem like an impossible goal. But it's all in the math. If one person tells two about this tomorrow, then the following day those two each tell two more, and so on and so on, how many days does it take to get to 50 million?

The answer might surprise you. 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 . . . believe it or not, in ONLY 27 DAYS, we'll have 67,108,864 pledges! (Go here for a full explanation.)

It's the power of numbers!

It's the power of people!

It's the power of joining together and declaring: NO MORE LESSER EVIL VOTING!

Remember, there's nothing at risk here. We honor the "I'll vote for Jill if you will" pledge only if we get to our goal.

On the other hand, there's an awful lot at stake . . . a better America for ourselves and our children!

It's up to you.

Take the pledge. Let us know by signing at one of the petition sites. Then have two others take the pledge. Make sure they go to the petition sites as well. Here are the sites:
