The Web Site That May Change History
For example, in the third quarter of 2003, predominantly small donations to the Dean campaign brought in over $14 million—a record for one quarter in Democratic presidential politics.
On Jan. 20, 2004, Howard Dean placed third in the Iowa caucuses and promptly imploded by giving what became known as his “I have a scream” speech that was repeatedly broadcast across the country, making him look like a nut case.
In the words of Jay Leno: “Howard Dean announced today he will campaign in seven states. The states are Rage, Frenzy, Fury, Wrath, Fever, Agitation, and Delirium. Yeeeeaaaah!”
But the Dean Internet campaign was a wake-up call to the power of the Internet and changed the American political landscape forever.
Unity08 is the brainchild of American political operatives from all parties committed to making government work. They want to gather the tens of millions of moderates that feel disenfranchised by those that have hijacked the national debate with such tangential issues as guns, gay marriage, abortion, creationism and church and state.
Instead, they ask: Shouldn’t government be debating and acting on Iraq, terrorists, immigration, the environment, crime, drugs (legal and illegal), health care, education, homeland security and competent response to national emergencies?
Unity08, the founders promise, will emphatically NOT be a fringe organization under the leadership of a Ross Perot or a Ralph Nader, who accomplished nothing more than to siphon votes away from serious candidates and screw the majority.
Instead, the premise of Unity08 is simple:
* To nominate candidates for president and vice president—that will NOT be members of the same political party
* To make sure that Unity08 candidates are on the ballot of every state and territory.
* To turn the Internet into the most powerful political organization the world has ever seen to get candidates elected and get the country back on track.
