The following email was sent out by the Libertarian Party today:
Dear Friend of Liberty,
Tomorrow, we celebrate Independence Day, the day two hundred and thirty-seven years ago when Americans declared their independence from the king of Great Britain and set out to create a nation with a small and unintrusive government, leaving people free to live their lives in peace, harmony, and abundance.
Since then, Big Government interests have violated and usurped the Constitution. They have allowed governments in the United States — at all levels — to grow to a size and to a level of meddling that would make King George proud. Americans have lost many freedoms, and more are threatened every day.
The Libertarian Party stands alone as the only party in America dedicated to fulfilling the mission of our Founding Fathers to establish and secure our freedoms.
In celebration of Independence Day, and the unalienable rights our Founding Fathers put their lives at risk for, will you please donate today $17.76 to strengthen and grow the new American Revolution?
We have a lot of work to do. Our freedom and prosperity are at high risk with today’s ever-growing Big Government.
We also have a big opportunity before us. Americans’ dissatisfaction with today’s Big Government is at record highs. We must capitalize on this discontent — and appeal to the love of freedom in every American’s heart.
Your symbolic donation of $17.76 will help our Libertarian Party mission to turn back Big Government, expand liberty, and restore prosperity for all Americans.
How will your $17.76 help the fight for liberty?
It will help seek and enlist more patriots like you into the Libertarian Party, and to tap into the emerging libertarian youth movement.
It will help fund our fight to overcome the many ballot access challenges and obstacles we face so Americans can vote Libertarian.
It will help us shine a spotlight on our fine Libertarian candidates and their Libertarian Solutions to shrink government in ways that directly benefit everyday voters.
Will you donate today by clicking here?
If we raise $1,776 in online donations before midnight on the Fourth of July, one of our generous Libertarian members will immediately donate another $1,776 to our party!
That means we need $17.76 from just 100 of you to double the impact of your donation!
Don’t miss your chance to be one of those proud 100. Click here to donate today.
If you wish to make an even greater impact, you can donate more than $17.76. It would be greatly appreciated.
Every dollar will be used to further the cause of liberty and freedom for all Americans.
Thank you for your support and your dedication to liberty in America.
Geoffrey J. Neale
Chair, Libertarian National Committee
