UPDATE, 12:15 a.m., 9/6/12: The Green Party presidential ticket of Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala will be on “Moyers & Company” this weekend. Follow this link for the production company’s preview of the segment.
Now here’s a political spot the American electorate deserves to see:
Google initially refused to run it but relented (what with censoring political speech being illegal and all). Here’s more from the Stein campaign:
You can see all four of our ads, beginning with “Enough!” and then continuing with three distinct versions of “What Green Means” by clicking here. But we still need your support to keep them on the air.
The timing is vital. The primary season ends this Thursday, September 6th. This means that you only have until this Thursday to get your contributions matched, dollar for dollar, up to $250, with federal matching funds. And this means that you only have until September 6th to donate the maximum allowable contribution of $2500.
Time is running short for another reason. Federal law requires that our matching funds monies be used in the primaries, by Thursday, and this means that we must pay for our cable and TV ads right now.
We’ve raised $40,000 for these ads. If we succeed in raising another $40,000 (for a total of $80K) by Thursday, our ads will run in college town media markets from the Pacific to the Mississippi to the Atlantic. If we raise another $80,000 (for a total of $120K), we’ll have viewership in medium sized cities of population 500,000 to 2 million. And if you help us raise another $160,000, we’ll be on in at least a couple major metropolitan areas. The more money we raise, the higher chance that YOUR community will see one of these ads.
To date, Jill Stein, Rocky Anderson, and 43 other candidates in 21 states – running for offices ranging from United States President to Monroe County, Florida District 1 Mosquito Control Officer – have endorsed the Unified Platform, an amalgam of the work of two legacy and four current Progressive organizations.
