My Two Cents on Al Gore

By | September 20, 2007

As you might already know, I’m fully in support of Al Gore getting reelected for President in 2008. I frequent a few different websites to keep tabs on my ideal presidential candidate in hopes that news will arise of his candidacy. Sadly, however, he has not (yet?) declared himself as a candidate. In defiance of this, the America for Gore Coalition has decided to take matters in to their own hands and started a “My Two Cents” campaign. I think its a pretty neat idea, so I’ve decided to promote it here as well, in hopes that anyone that may read this does what I’m about to suggest.

America for Gore is asking anyone in support of Al Gore to mail him two pennies along with a letter urging him to run, while also stating that the real financial support will come when he accepts that challenge. The hope is that the mountain of pennies that will soon pile up in his office will be a constant reminder to him that America needs him and is ready to support him. Sound like a good idea? Then go dig through your couch or car seats for two pennies, get an envelope and a stamp, type up a quick letter urging him to run, and send your two cents to the following address:

Office of the Honorable Al Gore
2100 West End Avenue, Suite 620
Nashville, TN 37203

    IT’S A MATTER OF REGAINING OUR COUNTRY’S IMAGE AND POSITION OF LEADERSHIP IN THE WORLD. WE CANNOT LET OURSELVES AND OUR POSITION IN THE COMMUNITY OF NATIONS BE CONTINUALLY DEGRADED BY THE INCOMPETENCE AND CRIMINAL ACTIVITY OF THIS BUSH-LEAGUE PACK OF TURKEYS THEY CALL THE CHENEY – BUSH ADMINISTRATION. THE LIST OF IMPEACHABLE OFFENSES PASSES TEN AS QUICKLY AS ONE CAN COUNT THE FINGERS ON THEIR HANDS. THE RE-ELECTION OF V.P. AL GORE WILL ALMOST IMMEDIATELY SET US ON THE PATH TO CORRECT AND REGAIN THE MISSION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AS A WORLD LEADER FOR GOOD –AND NOT EVIL. I WOULD HOPE MR GORE FINDS THE APPROPRIATE TIME TO ENTER THE RACE AND BEGIN HIS JOURNEY AS ONE OF THE GREATEST PRESIDENTS IN OUR HISTORY. THERE IS NO DOUBT HE IS THE MAN TO LEAD US OUT OF THIS NEO-CON, KOOL-AID DRUNK, IN-DENIAL CONTAMINATION THEY CALL RIGHT-WING REPUBLICANISM. THANKS MR GORE. Philip Johnson, Phoenix, AZ

    Thanks for mentioning the America for Gore ‘Two Cents’ campaign. Here is a press release America for Gore is sending out today:

    AMERICA FOR GORE: NATIONWIDE COALITION CREATED TO DRAFT AL GORE FOR PRESIDENT IN 2008

    National Milestone Reached in Growing Grassroots Movement

    BOSTON, Massachusetts—September 20, 2007—They are teachers and students, scientists and doctors, secretaries and CEOs, store clerks and store owners, factory workers and artists. They represent every demographic group and every geographic region in the country. They are everyday Americans, from coast to coast and across the political spectrum—Democrats, Independents, Republicans, conservatives, liberals, moderates. And they have two things in common: They have become involved in the political process (many for the first time), and they want Al Gore to run in the 2008 presidential election.

    And, as of September 2007, the grassroots effort of these thousands of individuals has reached a milestone: They have joined together as a nationwide coalition—America for Gore.

    America for Gore encompasses all the major and minor groups within the movement whose goal is to persuade Al Gore to run for president. Among the groups in the coalition are DraftGore.com, AlGore.org, Netroots for Gore, GoreHub.com, AlGore08 MySpace, Draft Gore Facebook groups, GoreforPresidentNow.com, Goreganic.com, RunDammit.com, RunGoreRun.com, and the Al Gore Support Center, as well as hundreds of Draft Gore meetups and groups nationwide. While the groups will continue to focus on their individual strategies, they will also be working together on important initiatives by sharing information, exchanging ideas, and mobilizing their members to help other groups within the coalition.

    The America for Gore coalition is launching a new website—www.AmericaforGore.org—to establish a central location on the web for the coordination of this grassroots effort. America for Gore is not replacing existing websites, groups, and blogs. The individual websites of each organization will continue to exist as before, but the new coalition website will keep group members and the public informed and will act as a portal, directing Gore supporters to the member sites so the can become involved in the many different facets of the Draft Gore movement.

    Members of the coalition cite Gore’s unmatched political experience (eight years each in Congress, the Senate, and as Vice President), the fact that he won the popular vote in 2000, his early and outspoken opposition to the war in Iraq, and his commitment to solving the climate crisis as core strengths of a potential candidacy in 2008.

    The formation of this coalition signals a significant increase in the sophistication of the Draft Gore movement as well as in the powers of coordination, recruitment, and influence of the movement.

    By coordinating their activities, the groups hope to extend their reach, recruit more members, and increase their impact on the public’s and the media’s perception of Al Gore’s viability as a candidate.
