(E) Join Me On Peace Day - from Congressman Kucinich

 

FROM CONGRESSMAN DENNIS J. KUCINICH

PS. After President Bush requested $87 billion more for war and
occupation, peace advocate, ice cream entrepreneur and Kucinich
supporter Ben Cohen explained what America could get for that
amount of money: We could solve the school budget
crisis in every community in America. Or we could provide health
insurance for every uninsured American child
for 15 years
. Or
we could feed all 6 million children who die from hunger worldwide
for the next 7 years.

Dear Friend,

Many of you first heard about me as I led opposition to the Iraq war in
the U.S. House of Representatives. Or after I'd launched my
presidential campaign and surprised the cynics with a strong showing in
the MoveOn primary. I thank you for supporting my efforts.

I need your help again.

I am asking you to join with me in celebrating the International Day of
Peace on September 21st by participating in our Peace Day House Party
Campaign.

On the International Day of Peace, as designated by the United Nations,
millions of people will come together with the common aspiration of
creating a world based on a peaceful, just and sustainable future.

I ask each one of you on that incredible day to join with others who
share the vision of our presidential campaign.

Of an America that once again will be the light of nations.

Of an America that will lead the world toward peace, not to the specter
of war without end.

Of an America that stands not in pursuit of an axis of evil, but which
is itself at the axis of hope and peace and freedom.

This is a critical time in our campaign. When we file our fundraising
report on September 30, the pundits and so-called "experts" will once
again be looking for an excuse to dismiss us. While our message of
peace and justice continues to draw thousands in state after state, the
pundits only measure success in dollars and cents.

Let's prove them wrong.

We will never match the more corporate-friendly candidates in
fundraising. But there is power beyond imagining in our common purpose.
That is why your participation is so crucial, whether your house party
can raise $100 or $1,000, or whether 2 people or 200 gather at your
party. Because when thousands of us act together, we will change the
outcome of this election.

There are 13 days until the International Day of Peace. Invite your
friends and neighbors to your party. All of us, together, will make our
Peace Day campaign a powerful statement for a new America.

Now is a great time to contribute to our campaign for peace, economic
justice, equality and sustainability:

Sincerely,

Dennis

Big Week for Kucinich

Dear Kucinich Supporter,

Thanks to you, we're on a roll.

Our Peace Day House Parties are taking off (see below) and last
Thursday, thousands of Kucinich supporters gathered in MEETUPS in more
than 200 cities and towns across the country to organize local groups
and campus chapters. As a Boston volunteer wrote: "They just keep
getting bigger and better." A Minneapolis activist commented: "It's
empowering to know there are other motivated Kucinich supporters out
there who can believe in a politics outside the corporate media."

In that night's nationally-televised DEBATE in Albuquerque, Dennis won
big applause when he distinguished himself from other candidates on
issues like the bloated military budget, corporate trade treaties, and
getting the U.S. out of Iraq with "no more Halliburton sweetheart deals."

Dennis' barb aimed at Gov. Dean was widely quoted in the media: "You
can talk about balancing the budget in Vermont, but Vermont doesn't
have a military. And if you're not going to cut the military, then what
are you going to do about social spending?"

On a Sunday TV politics show, one of the pundits made this observation:
"Who's Howard Dean really worried about? I think he's worried about
Dennis Kucinich taking off left and populist votes in Iowa in the
caucuses."

On Sunday night, Dennis issued a POWERFUL REBUTTAL to the Bush speech:
"The President has been unable to produce evidence that this war was
fought over weapons of mass destruction. It is not too late for him to
prove that it was not fought over oil. That can be done by returning
control of the oil to the Iraqi people." (At the United Nations
yesterday, Dennis reiterated these points at a news conference with
receptive journalists.)

And finally, in just a few days after Dennis issued his call for
supporters to celebrate the INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE -- Sept. 21 --
by holding fundraising house parties, 290 people have already pledged
to hold Peace Day parties in support of the Kucinich campaign. To join
the Peace Day House Party movement, click here:

If you can't participate in a Peace Day party, you can help the
campaign by making a GENEROUS DONATION:

And don't miss TONIGHT'S DEBATE, sponsored by the Congressional Black
Caucus, on Fox News Channel (no joke!) at 8-9:30pm Eastern.

Thanks again for your support.
