Dear Vice-President Mr. Gore;
I am writing today to inform you of my intent to file as a Democrat
as a candidate for President for the 2004 election. You
may have heard of me or have been informed of me.. I
have a website at www.democraticfundamentalism.org
, and Ive spent the last several months actually working toward causing people to
become re-involved with the political and voting systems. I only wish I could have done
more in the last elections.
Ill add, before opening that site, I spent a great deal of time
trying to reach you to have a conversation to work for you to make sure you got elected in
the next election. That would still be
something Id consider in lieu of this method of causing the same outcome. And
Im serious about that.
If you have heard of me, then you know that I am somewhat unorthodox
in my methods. And, given the efforts and
campaigns I intend to do, I wanted you to be aware of what I was actually doing. I will not make such a communication again, or
repeat any part of this to anyone.
My strategy will be focused on 3 things:
new, young voters into the system
just out of high school, through college graduate
students. This will be done through
grassroots and professional voter registration activities
draw those people in 3rd parties back into the two party system, using
arguments ranging from the need to consolidate power at this particular time in
pointing out the commonality of their concerns with the Democratic
positions. And specifically, yours
and those of my own that we have in common
raise issues that, so far, the mainstream political system and press has refused to
address, such as the detriments caused by the World Bank and IMF
things that the new
generation are very concerned with. And although I have a different perspective than they
on these matters, I agree with their concerns. Part of what I intend to do is help them
distinguish what it is that really concerns them, and then teach them how to do something
about it within the system. I dont know
where you stand on these issues, such as the FTAA, and we may disagree on these matters. But that is not of primary importance at this
On my website, Ive made jokes about running for vice-president
so that you could be president. I was never
actually joking. I have no fantasies about
what a long-shot it would be for someone like me to actually generate enough support to
deserve a national nomination or office.
On the other hand, I am very adept at languaging and positioning,
advertising and marketing, and human nature. And Im working with some top-notch
professional grassroots organizers. I would not do this if I did not believe it was
possible to win.
I will, of course, take
every precaution to ensure that none can legitimately state that you in any way endorse me
or even acknowledge I exist.
Most of all, I want you to understand that I am doing what I am going
to do because of my passion for America. And the true intent of those who formed it. I
think we share that passion. Ive
watched every speech you made in Election 2000, Ive read your books, and youre
one of the few leaders at that point in time that I actually, genuinely trust.
By May, I will have published 2 books regarding my philosophies and
opinions on issues.
So, no matter what happens, no matter what I do or say or what gets
said, understand that what Im doing should create a natural transition of voters
from my campaign to yours. Ill still
be out here working for you, in my own unorthodox ways.
Like I always say, when you do it for America, you do it for yourself, and
God Bless You All!
