"The END the Income Tax Petition Drive Is In Danger. NOT Because We
Can't Collect Enough Signatures. It May Fail Because We're Almost
Broke. We Don't Have Enough Money to Pay Petitioners For This Week's
An Urgent Plea from Michael Cloud
Unless we raise $14,000 today to pay our petitioners, we will have to
shut down our END the Income Tax petition drive.
The signatures are flooding in. The donations are trickling.
We are nearly broke.
With your help, we've raised $15,633 this month. Toward the $47,000 in
final petitioning costs we need by our June 9th turn-in deadline.
Our bank balance is $1,834.
We have collected, received, and paid for 8,013 signatures out of the
20,000 required. 40% done!
Our petitioners have another 7,000 signatures in the pipeline. They'll
be turned in this weekend.
By this Sunday, we'll have over 15,000 signatures in hand. 75% done!
By this Sunday, we'll be only 8 days from the last 5,000 signatures.
Only 8 days until daylight. On the ballot for our Initiative to END
the Income Tax.
Paid Petitioning is a cash and carry business. Petitioners don't give
credit. They don't have time payment plans.
They hold onto their petitions until we pay them. They will stop
collecting signatures if we can't pay them.
Unless we raise $14,000 today to pay for this week's petition
signatures, we can't pay them.
We'll be forced to shut down our END the Income Tax petition drive.
Unless we raise $14,000 today and another $10,000 by June 9th, we
can't finish the petition drive.
Please don't let this fail - for want of your donation.
Carla Howell is managing the petition drive, doing dozens of
newspaper, TV, and radio interviews, and working countless hours with
She needs your help. And mine.
Because of Carla Howell's leadership and work, we are on the verge of
the biggest, boldest, best tax cut since Massachusetts Proposition 2 ½
in 1982. Or California's Proposition 13 in 1978.
We can see the petitioning finish line. We are so close.
But we can't succeed without you. I need your help. Carla needs your
We need your help to pay for the 7,000 petition signatures in the
pipeline - and last 5,000 petition signatures needed to put us over
We only have 24 hours to raise $14,000.
You hold the survival of the END the Income Tax Petition Drive in your
hands. If you donate, we'll probably succeed. If not, everything
you've done so far will be wasted.
Will YOU Please contribute $500 or $250 or $150 right now - so we can
finish the petition drive?

We need YOU. There's no one else for us to turn to. Just you. Will you
