To Oklahoma Tribe contacts,
Greetings. I have obtained your email addresses from websites listing U.S. government recognized Tribes. Please allow me to introduce myself. I was a candidate for the Libertarian Party nomination for president. Now I have decided to proceed as an independent. As such I have great interest in Native American issues. You can see this on my website: http://www.robertmilnes4president2008.com
As you may know ballot access is a very important issue in American politics. Your state is very difficult for third party and independent ballot access. About 43,000 registered voters’ signatures on a petition are required. 85,000 is considered recommended in the event of disqualifications. These are due by July 15. The Green Party convention is July 10-13. I would like to get the GP and/or the Boston Tea Party nominations etc. But failing that I will try to get on as many ballots as possible.
To get on the Oklahoma ballot would be a great accomplishment; the GP and LP may very well fail. I am asking with this letter for your support in getting on the Oklahoma ballot and as many others as possible. I would be willing to pay premium wage for signature gathering. However unfortunately I have not as yet received sufficient campaign funding to do that. If you would be willing to help and publicly state so, that could be a strong factor in my getting campaign support. So I am asking for your public announcment of support for my candidacy and help with signature gathering. I look forward to your kind reply.
Robert W. Milnes.
