OneMoreVote.org today launched a novel email campaign with the goal of defeating President Bush in his own home State of Texas. Building upon the energized anti-Bush Internet tidal wave that has brought in over $200 million in contributions to the Democratic Presidential campaign coffers, OneMoreVote.org seeks to extend the InternetÂs reach beyond votersÂ checkbooks to the actual polls on November 2nd.
"We have a highly motivated anti-Bush electorate this year and the Democrats have shown that the power of the Internet can be harnessed to mobilize at the grassroots level," said Khanh Nguyen, founder of OneMoreVote.org. "Instead of asking for any money from our members, we are asking them to make a solemn pledge, an oath to go to the polls and to find at least One More VoteÂ to do the same."
In President BushÂs ÂlandslideÂ victory in Texas in the 2000 Elections, out of 14.9 million voters who could have voted, only 3.8 actually voted for Bush. 2.6 million votes went to Gore. This means that 11.1 million votes were not cast for Bush in 2000.
ÂIf each person who voted for Gore in Texas in the last election pledges to vote for Kerry in 2004 and pledges to bring One More VoteÂ to do the same, we would defeat Bush with 1.2 million votes to spare,Â said Khanh Nguyen. ÂThe key is for us to provide a mechanism for each voter to feel accountable to the collective; to trust that his or her vote actually does count because each individual will be held personally accountable to the whole.Â The Website will show a current count of the number of votes pledged Texas.
OneMoreVote.org is a pure grassroots Internet movement with the sole purpose of defeating President Bush. The site was started by a few ordinary Americans on a volunteer basis. We are not asking for donations or house parties. We are solely asking for a pledge from each member to vote for Kerry on November 2nd and to bring One More VoteÂ to do the same.
