John Edwards is running an unconventional campaign. From being the first candidate to shut out Fox News as a legitimate source for debate, to being the first candidate to call for Alberto Gonzalez to resign, to being the first and only major candidate to present a comprehensive Universal Health Care plan, for running as a friend to the environment via a carbon-neutral campaign, to using the progressive website ActBlue to raising the bulk of his internet funds, John Edwards has been there for us and has represented our interests.
Now, it's time for us to help him AND ActBlue. The campaign is on the cusp of raising $3 Million on ActBlue. This is a huge accomplishment, both for the Edwards campaign and for our friends at ActBlue. Please help us pass the $3 Million mark: http://www.actblue.com/page/voxpopuli
Even if you support another candidate for president, and even if John isn't our nominee, his voice and his ideas are important in this race. By willing to be bold, specific, and courageous, Edwards is forcing the party to stick to its roots. I firmly believe the Edwards campaign, fail or succeed in the primary, will help Democrats in the General Election: http://www.actblue.com/page/voxpopuli
The Edwards campaign is not about one man, it is about ideas and about We the People. It is about standing up for the rights of working folks. It is about providing health care to every American. It is about getting us out of Iraq. It is about reclaiming America. http://www.actblue.com/page/voxpopuli
I am a young professional who worked full time through college. I am not a wealthy person. I first gave to Howard Dean in 2003, a small amount of $25.00. I'm asking you to stop by my ActBlue page and give a small donation to John Edwards. It's not the amount you give, it's that you give at all. And if you like John's ideas, even if you don't support him for President, please give a little to make sure he gets heard. http://www.actblue.com/page/voxpopuli
Thanks for considering my request, every person who donates even a dollar, and every comment in this thread, makes Democracy a little stronger. http://www.actblue.com/page/voxpopuliPlease make sure to stop by, and make sure to give a tip to our friends at ActBlue! We Just Reached the Goal!
The $3,000,0000 Man John Edwards just became the first $3 million dollar candidate on ActBlue thanks to a push by MyDD User and ActBlue page creator Vox Populi. Considering we held conference calls regarding presidential fundraising earlier this week, I think this provides a great example!http://blog.actblue.com/blog/2007/05/the_30000000_ma.html Thanks to everyone who contributed, let's keep the campaign moving!
