One of the highlights of my life some years ago was having Ben Cohen come over with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s so we’d have something to enjoy as he pitched me on his campaign to cut military funding and I pitched him on my campaign to increase DNC funding. We wound up trading checks (thank you, Ben!), and I learned how self-defrosting refrigerators work and why that takes a toll on ice cream. I expect he may not even remember that hour — I obviously do — but I did make it into his address file, apparently, because his office just sent me this.
It’s so good, I wanted to be sure to offer you a taste:
I’m sending this email to anyone I’ve run into over the years.
I want to let you know what I’m up to and if you like the idea, hopefully you might like to participate by purchasing some unique holiday gifts that are fun to use and help get big money out of politics all at the same time.
We sell the stamps at our cost: $6-$10. order online.
StampStampede Rubber Stamps
The Gift That Really Keeps on Giving
StampStampede is a non profit campaign I started to encourage tens of thousands of Americans to rubber stamp messages on paper money calling for an Amendment to the Constitution to Get Money Out of Politics. We’re part of a movement that is rapidly gathering momentum. Already 400 municipalities and 11 states have passed resolutions in favor of the amendment. Over 100 senators and congress people have signed on as well.
The average stamped dollar bill will be seen by 875 people over the next 2 ½ years. Multiplication is amazing. We actually have the potential to reach every voter and politician in the country multiple times.
It’s Monetary Jiu Jitsu – using money to get money out of politics. And it just might be the progressive stocking stuffer of 2012.
This isn’t defacing currency – it’s adorning your dollars. And it’s legal.
StampStampede stamps are a delightful holiday gift for friends, mates, kids, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, nieces, teachers, business associates, clients, employees, bosses or what have you.
With a multiplier factor of 875 as each bill gets passed around, StampStampede stamps are truly the gift that keeps on giving.
Please visit our website at StampStampede.org to learn more about the campaign and order up some stamps.
Happy Holidays and Happy Stamping,
I ordered six.
