We here at Writeindependent.org actively seek out candidates that run under the mainstream media’s radar. We frequently end up on their email list, and read content you won’t see anywhere else. The following is a quote from a presidential candidate’s mass email:
“We should mention that the expenditures for this primary election is paid by large corporations which support these pre-candidates in order to obtain favorable commitments and special favors ignoring the needs of 99% of the population, people like you and me, the same people they do not care about or take into account.
“On the other hand, we have the independent candidates [who] do not represent any political party and much less have commitments to large corporations, in reality they are the only candidates who represent the interests of 99% of the people of our nation.”
–Paul Chehade, candidate for President of the United States
We are promoting a more open environment for candidates to run; a more level playing field. We think it shouldn’t cost over a million dollars to bid for a congressional seat. If you agree, please donate today to help us get the word out to your fellow internet users.
