A Heartfelt Plea from Adrian Wyllie, Libertarian Candidate for Governor, FloridaSubmitted by bakerroxx288 on Mon, 08/04/2014 - 16:58
A Heartfelt Plea from Adrian Wyllie, Libertarian Candidate for Governor, Florida sent this out today. If you are serious about restoring Liberty (and an alternative currency), please help!
It's not easy for me to ask you for money. It's one of the things I like least about campaigning. I know times are tough and many of us are struggling. If I didn't think I had a legitimate shot at winning the race, I wouldn't be sending this letter. But I do. It is now August 4th and we are coming down to the wire. We need to raise $110,000 by September 1st or risk exclusion from the debates.
History has proven that the establishment will do everything in its power to keep our voice from being heard. They want to prevent you, the people, from interfering with the corruption and abuse in Tallahassee. But put a stop to it we must. The politicians have too much to lose. We need to hold their feet to the fire. We need to stand up for what is right.
They are determined to keep me out of the debates because I've already proven that people will vote for me...even without widespread name recognition. Can you imagine how our chances will increase once voters see that our solutions and ideas rise above the petty bickering of Scott and Crist in the debate? We can't let this opportunity go to waste, folks. I will defeat my opponents because the message of liberty will not go unheard.
It is evident, based on the recent poll, that Floridians are growing tired of Rick Scott and Charlie Crist. They are no longer trusted as leaders. I desperately want to fight for your rights and freedoms. I will continue to do so, regardless of how much money we raise because it is my obligation to do so.
One of the campaign's most important goals is that we raise $110,000 in the next month. The maximum contribution is $3,000 per person. In order to meet one of the likely criteria to get into the debates, we will need:
▪ 37 supporters to contribute $3,000 or
▪ 73 people to donate $1,500 or
▪ 150 donations at $733 or
▪ 300 people to contribute $366 OR the best option in the list...
▪ 440 in-state supporters to donate just $250 each
If we reach our goal of raising an additional $110,000, we will meet the criteria to receive state matching funds. To the media, this is a big milestone. To me, it's an opportunity to stand on principle.
I promise to reject the state funding publicly. I am fundamentally opposed to the use of taxpayer money for campaign financing. State matching funds are nothing more than "candidate welfare" and should be abolished.
Right now, all of us are being forced to fund candidates which we despise via this program. If we participate in it, we are no better than they. We will have taken a small step toward becoming what we despise. Though the additional money would mean a lot to our grassroots campaign, it is not worth compromising our core beliefs. We must always remain true to our principles, even when it is not in our short-term best interest to do so.
The time has come. The time is now. We have just 57 days until the absentee ballots are mailed out and less time than that to meet the debate criteria. Donate what you can to help propel the campaign into victory. We need to secure the funds a month before the first debate in order to let our voice... your voice... be heard. By contributing today, we will all be that much closer to restoring prosperity and freedom to the great state of Florida.
