Clean Money Electoral Campaign

Buck the System Today!
Are you fed up with the crisis of corruption in our government?
Big oil, drug companies, insurers, developers, HMOs, and big unions are corrupting our political system by working with inscruplous lobbyists like Jack Abramoff and using their millions of dollars in campaign cash to buy influence with our legislators.
Enough is enough!
This November 7th, California has the best chance in years to stop political corruption in Sacramento and send shockwaves of reform across the country — all the way to Washington DC.
A contribution of as little as $5 today "Bucks the System" by helping pass Proposition 89, the California Clean Money and Fair Elections Act.
Buck the System Now!
Our Big Money opponents are working overtime to stop Prop 89 because they know that it will create a system where elections are about ideas, not their money.
By giving $5 to pass Prop 89, you are standing with everybody who is sick and tired of corrupt politics. By standing together, we can defeat the lobbyists and special interests spending millions to defeat Prop 89.
Proposition 89 will stop corruption by enacting:
• Strict Contribution Limits that will end the fundraising madness with constitutional limits so regular voters aren't drowned out by big money.
• Clean Money Full Public Financing of Political Campaigns that will level the playing field so new candidates can win on their ideas, not because of the money they raise.
• A Ban on Contributions From Lobbyists and groups seeking business with the state.
• Tough Disclosure and Enforcement that will stop candidates from hiding behind negative ads and punish politicians who violate the law.
By Bucking the System today, you are joining a powerful coalition of organizations and citizens working to create a government that is accountable to us, not to big special interest campaign donors.
Buck the System Now!
Prop 89 is supported by trusted groups including the League of Women Voters of California, the California Nurses Association, the California Clean Money Campaign, California Common Cause, California Church IMPACT, the Foundation for Taxpayer and Consumer Rights, Sierra Club California, and many other groups and individuals fighting for reform.
Please check out and give $5 today. Or Buck the System even more by giving more if you can.
Then tell all your friends to "Buck the System", too. Even email your friends outside California, because if Prop 89 passes in California, it will sweep the country and help buck the corrupt money system everywhere!
Everybody can afford to give $5 — and with the price political corruption costs everyone, how can anybody afford not to?
Buck the System Now!
