Information from The Denver Group - Early morning July 28, 2008

A number of folks have asked how much money The Denver Group needs to raise to run all the ads we would like to run between now and the Democratic National Party Convention in August. It is difficult to answer this question conclusively because our plans depend on what we can raise. But we thought it would be helpful to give people some idea of targets that, if met, can help us maximize our impact.

Going forward, we can run print and TV ads which we know will be significantly effective if we raise at least another $25,000 as quickly as possible. Double that amount and we think we can knock the socks off of all those who need to get the message that The Denver Group and its supporters want an authentically democratic convention where uncoerced super delegates have a real opportunity to choose among potential candidates for the Democratic Party's choice to run against John McCain this fall.

Information about who is eligible to donate and how appears in the sidebar. We accept contributions by mail, through Act Blue, and via PayPal. We know we can raise the money that would significantly enhance our effectiveness if enough people can find just five dollars to donate. If you share our goals and want to help, please consider making a contribution within your means.

I'm sending a $100 contribution to The Denver Group because I firmly believe that the August Democratic National Convention must be a truly open convention, with Sen. Clinton's name placed in nomination and ample opportunity and time provided for her and her supporters to speak, and for a roll call vote of all delegates and superdelegates to take place. I'm making this contribution despite my own financial hardships this year because I believe that it is absolutely vital to uphold the principles of individual liberty on which this nation was founded, including the principle that 'the government derives its just powers from the consent of the governed' through their votes -- one person=one vote -- and including the sanctity of the vote as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. The DNC and Party leaders have flagrantly violated these principles this election season, especially with the despicable RBC decision halving the FL and MI delegate votes, awarding unearned delegate votes to BO and effectively disenfranchising millions of voters. What's at stake is nothing less than the survival of our democratic republic as we know it. If we tolerate totalitarian tactics such as those being used by the DNC, Party leaders and the BO camp to strong-arm voters into falling in line behind the 'selected not elected' nominee, then we will no longer live in a democracy but in a fascist state. I feel a personal, moral obligation to do all that I can to make sure that does not happen. Thanks to The Denver Group for all you do to 'keep the Democratic Party democratic.' I hope this contribution will help toward getting the word out in further print and TV ads before the convention.
