Join me in a nationwide campaign to open the upcoming presidential debates to include independent candidate Ralph Nader.
A new organization is being launched — LetNaderDebate.Org — whose mission is to bring thousands of fellow Americans into an effort to demand that Nader’s voice be included in the televised debates, the first of which is scheduled for September.
We have begun by circulating our OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH, calling on him to open the debates and demand Nader’s inclusion. In order for the debates to be an appropriately engaged forum, Nader’s voice must be included. He offers a significantly different perspective on the pressing issues of the day — including the war in Iraq — and his participation will surely invigorate the dialogue.
1) First, go to the new website at www.LetNaderDebate.org and send the open letter to President George Bush calling on him to bring Ralph into the debates.
2) Second, make a contribution on line if you can or mail it in.
3) Third, send an e-mail letter with the www.LetNaderDebate.org link to all of your friends, family members and colleagues asking them to join this campaign. You don’t have to be a Nader voter to support an open and democratic debate! It is very important to follow up the e-mail message with a personal conversation.
4) Fourth, become an ongoing leader in this campaign. Keep reaching out to new people to support this campaign online, in person and through the media. Develop new ways of building this campaign and share this on line with other activists.
So let’s go and get Nader into the debates. Let me know how it goes.
