Jo Jorgensen, the Libertarian Party’s 2020 presidential nominee sent out the following fundraising pitch to her email subscribers:
Do you remember the scene in Lord of the Rings: Two Towers with Sam and Frodo near the end of the movie?
Don’t worry – If you haven’t seen it I won’t provide any spoilers.
Frodo is desperate and his mission seems nearly impossible to complete. Defeating Sauron, or the two-party system for that matter, isn’t an easy battle. Here’s a quick excerpt:
Sam: “… Folks in those stories had lots of chances in turning back only they didn’t. They kept going because they were holding onto to something.”
Frodo: “What are we holding onto, Sam?”
Sam: “That there’s some good left in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it’s worth fighting for.”
As Sam said, those committed to victory never turned back and were fighting for something bigger than themselves.
You and I are holding on to something too. We’re holding on to our Second Amendment rights, civil liberties, free markets, a foreign policy of peace, real healthcare reform, and transforming our criminal justice system.
This is what we’re fighting for.
And yes… together we are casting the ring of power into the fire.
We can’t back down now.
Donald Trump and Joe Biden are crossing their fingers and hoping we will give up or simply concede… I refuse to do so.
Our fight is important and one I believe in. However, our fight for liberty requires funding and I need your help. My goal is to raise an additional $300,000 before the end of the month so we can reach millions of voters DURING the debates. Please use one of these links to donate today.
We are rapidly approaching the election and there’s no time to wait. I am counting on your help to achieve this $300,000 goal. We can provide Americans with a REAL choice this election they can be proud of.
America voting for the lesser of two evils isn’t working.
Voters are joining our campaign in droves when they hear our message.
However, America will never hear our message of liberty if we fail to raise the funds needed to reach them online, over the radio, on TV, via streaming services, etc.
This is our moment.
We must strike NOW.
I hope you’ll be one of the first supporters to make a donation today.
Thank you for everything.
Let’s win this thing.
