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!
