Kucinich Brings Presidential Campaign To L.A.
Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich is scheduled to begin a two-day campaign swing through the Los Angeles area with a fundraiser Saturday night. On Sunday, Kucinich is scheduled to attend fundraisers in Mount Washington and Santa Monica and the Peace Expo in Baldwin Hills. The event marks the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Kucinich, an Ohio representative, has long sought to establish a Department of Peace, which he said would "make nonviolence an organizing principle at home and abroad and dedicate ourselves to peaceful coexistence, consensus building, disarmament and respect for international treaties."

"Violence and war are not inevitable," Kucinich said. "Nonviolence and peace are inevitable."

Kucinich is the first of four Democratic presidential candidates scheduled to be in the Los Angeles area in a three-day period. Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama will conduct fundraisers Monday, while New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson is set to speak at a conference in Century City and hold a fundraising.

3. DECEMBER 15 2007.COM
DECEMBER 15, 2007 is the date on which we can begin to take back our country. It is also the date in 1791 upon which our Bill of Rights took effect.

On December 15, 2007, Dennis Kucinich will attempt to shatter Ron Paul's recent $4.2 million single day fund raising record, and collect a mind-boggling $10 million in one day.

This can only happen with your help. The website is December152007.com. Spread the word! Money is what makes the media sit up and take notice. Without it you are a fringe candidate worthy of little respect or news coverage and no speaking time in the debates - if you are even invited to them. A candidate who can raise $10 million in a single day can no longer be ignored by the mainstream media.

Please go to December152007.com and pledge to contribute on December 15 by signing up on the email list. You must actually contribute on the 15th on Dennis Kucinich's official website; a reminder email will be sent on that day.

Please also promote this event in any way you possibly can. Put a sign over the freeway. Put a large sign on your vehicle and park it somewhere legal where a lot of traffic goes by. (I did, I move it twice a day to make sure someone doesn't try to get it towed). Call a friend, email family and friends....... Now is the time to take action, not just sit on the sidelines and carp.

And by all means put your money where your mouth is - as one bumper sticker on my pickup truck says, "Talk is cheap... Make a donation!"

4. did we make a mistake
we gave a large amount of cash up front. Now we feel a little strapped. Maybe it's best to plan to give to Kucinich on a monthly plan?

5. Don't worry
I already gave to him too.. Your donation helps regardless of when you gave it. If you can't give any more on the 15th, just do as I am doing and PROMOTE THE EVENT at the top of your lungs! :-)

6. we will see if a little more is possible.
We certainly want to. Had we spread it out, maybe our contributions would have helped more with the struggle for matcing funds. But, if you do, its best to try and do a monthly pledge for x number of months.
