Email from Jim Burns, a Libertarian for President 2012:
Do you want Senator Harry Reid defeated?
You can take action that will increase the
chances that Reid will not be re-elected.
No matter how much money Sharron Angle
spends there are some votes that she will not
receive. However, if someone else who is on
the ballot makes a different appeal, they may
receive votes that otherwise would have gone
to Reid: especially, if the appeal is directed at
people who are not conservative. There is good
reason to believe that the election may be decided
by a few hundred votes. If a few hundred votes
that would have gone to Harry go to a candidate
of a minor party rather than Harry, then the odds
of a Reid victory are reduced.
If postcards are sent to only registered democrat voters
asking them to vote for a candidate from a minor party,
some of them will do so. To be successful, we need to
persuade a small percentage of these voters to vote for
a minor party candidate: These are votes that would have
gone to Reid, therefore, reducing his vote total. I have
designed such a postcard.
My cost for postcards, printed 2 sided, addressed to an
active registered democrat voter, and with attached 28 cent
postage stamp is 50 cents each: that is ready-to-mail (An
additional cost that must be paid is delivery cost. I will pay
this if needed and I am able).
A cheaper way is to do most of the work yourself or with
friends: My cost for mailing labels with the name and an
address of an active registered democrat voter is 3 cents
per label. I will send you a postcard. You may shop around
and get the cheapest price for printing copies of my postcard
of the same or better quality. Have the postcards printed; buy
the US postcard stamps (28 cents each); buy the labels from
me: place the labels and stamps on the proper location on the
postcard, then post them.
I want Senator Reid defeated. So, I will sell at my cost the
first 50,000: Buy it either way: 50 cents each or 3 cents for
labels. Buy them for yourself or if you know someone, who
does not like Harry, show them the postcard, tell them the plan,
and sell them the postcards for whatever you can get above your
cost. Make a profit for yourself.
Send me your US mailing address and I’ll send you a sample postcard.
