Pledge “HelpBuddy”

"I will donate $20 to Buddy Roemer's campaign for President but only if 100,000 other Americans will do the same."

— Tim Huegerich

Deadline to sign up by: 31st December 2011
30 people signed up, 99970 more were needed

Country: United States

More details
Gov. Roemer is running for President on a platform of fighting the corrupting influence of money. He only accepts donations of up to $100 from individual citizens, not corporations, so he is dependent on the People alone. If we want politicians free from the influence of Wall Street and other powerful interests, we need to support them!

As of October 1st, Gov. Roemer had raised around $200,000 total. A donation of just $20 from 100,000 Americans (less than 0.1% of US) committed to reform would give him 10 times as much money to get his message out. Sure, if only a dozen of us give $20, that would accomplish nothing. But once 100,000 sign up for this, you will be notified that it is time to give, and we will make headlines with our $2 million contribution!

This pledge is now closed, as its deadline has passed.

Comments on this pledge

  • Is it too late to help Buddy? No!

    Here's the strategy: he is currently campaigning exclusively in New Hampshire, and he is beginning to build support there, especially with GOP-leaning independents: Meeting our goal by the end of 2011 would give Buddy a boost ahead of the January primary in New Hampshire. We would give him the resources to spread his message of fighting big money corruption across the country, going forward.

    p.s. If you've already donated the maximum $100, you obviously can't sign this pledge, but why not leave a comment of support? We know that thousands have already made small donations to get Buddy this far.

  • By the way, you will only be emailed when we reach the major milestones of 100, 1000, and 10,000 signatories. You will also be notified when 100,000 is reached and it is time to give your $20 (if we reach it by the deadline).
