The latest Gary Johnson youtube “ad”:
The blurb accompanying the ad:
Both parties are indistinguishable from one another. Both are keeping America broke. Both are keeping America at war. Both have trampled on the Constitution. And both are products of the same big money players that never change behind the scenes. It’s time to give the elephants and donkeys a little company. We the people are ready to let Washington know the TWO-PARTY IS OVER.
In other Gary Johnson news, today is the last day of the “money bomb” whose theme is getting Johnson “back off the mountain” by raising a dollar for every foot of his descent from Mt. Everest nine years ago this week (the money to “get him to the summit” was raised earlier). The following is in my email from campaign manager Ron Nielson:
That’s how far we have to go to reach the goal of our Mt. Everest Money Bomb!
A few days ago, to commemorate Gov. Gary Johnson’s successful summit of the world’s highest peak on May 30, 2003, we took on another challenge: An attempt to raise $1 for every foot Gov. Johnson had to climb to reach the top of Mt. Everest.
Thanks to a fantastic group of supporters, we not only met that challenge – we exceeded it. In a few short days, those supporters contributed MORE than the $29,035 needed to match the elevation of Everest’s peak. That was when one of our volunteers reminded us that a mountain climb isn’t complete until the climbers have made it safely back down.
Taking that to heart, and having reached the “summit” in our Money Bomb, we doubled our goal – and are well on our way to achieving it. But we’re not there yet.
As of this morning, we are $11,000 short of our $59,070 goal – a goal we have set to reach by tonight. So far, since the Money Bomb began a few days ago, almost 400 people have contributed. If you are one of those, THANK YOU! If not, today is the day. Go to www.garyjohnson2012.com and make sure we don’t fall short.
Whether is has been building a successful business from scratch, being elected governor of an overwhelmingly Democrat state when no one thought it could be done, or climbing Mt. Everest, Governor Gary Johnson is serious about achieving goals. Restoring Liberty and financial responsibility as guiding principles of American leadership is the most important goal he has ever set.
A huge part of achieving that goal is making certain we have the funding necessary to conduct a 50-state campaign over the next 5 months. Your contribution today is about much, much more than making our Everest Money Bomb a success. It is about making millions of Americans fully aware that their choices for President in November are not limited to the Democrat Obama and the Republican Romney.
It is about giving voice to the millions of Americans who want us out of wars we shouldn’t be fighting, who want the government out of bedrooms and boardrooms, and who know that trillion dollar deficits are simply unsustainable.
Your financial support is the key to delivering these messages to every corner of the nation. Go to www.garyjohnson2012.com , help make sure we achieve our goal – and more important, make an investment in real Liberty!
Thank you for your support,
Gary Johnson 2012
P.S. Be sure to tune in Tuesday night to watch Governor Johnson on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. The invitation to be a guest on The Daily Show is yet another great sign of the momentum your support is creating!
