for all to see, and new research is simply giving us more certainty.
We are facing a crisis that, which if not addressed, will bring the collective accomplishments of the human race, and indeed the living
biosphere, to a slow and anguishing halt. In steadily
increasing numbers, this realization is transforming ordinary
people into 'citizens of conscience'; and naturally, they want to help.
Yet, out of all the organizations who do you give your money to?
Common Sense of America
is the sentinel movement of our lifetimes, and its effects will
be felt for generations. This is not exclusively an
environmentalist dialogue. It is the discussion of a shared
responsibility to those not yet born. It is about having the
courage to face the scientific certainty that this generation
is the historic critical moment. So how to make a real
Some people think
they're saving the planet by donating to a big Greengroup.
We urge you to see through marketing strategy, which seeks to
maneuver your conscience to obtain your dollar, by which generating
money is the end goal, not the means to accomplishing a
mission. The moment any organization accepts money from a
big company, if that company has a connection with any lobbyist
group who maintains a presence in our government, they have
quietly agreed to 'hush-up' on the issue of campaign finance as
well as lobbying industry reform. This means that almost any
group with a corporate logo on their web-site is ultimately
spinning its wheels and thus, wasting your money.
Democratic and Republican Parties do not need your money.
Both major parties are lavishly funded, and both parties are mired
in the same schemes and abuses. To take money from special-interests simply nullifies the vital foundation of our Democratic
Government. So, money placed there is not simply wasted, it
goes to support a two party scheme to keep ordinary people out of
the process. See through it!
environmental message has been in every State legislature and the
U.S. Congress for over 50 years. However, both major parties are preoccupied
by a drive to obtain special-interest
money allowing wealthy companies to block virtually any reforms they
wish. We are discovering that we have little choice but to bring
Common Sense to government. We must make absolute certain that the
right things will finally be done with that message. If we
are to get America back on track, the election must go from a
periodic distraction, to the finish line of a grand

Big business loves your money, yet fears your
voice. Corporations will not fund a mission designed to curtail the 25
thousand lobbyists, who in just the past 35 years, have
successfully co-opted our government. It is The People who must support
the cause of sweeping reform. If you help us today, the people of tomorrow will
rejoice in the rewards of an enlightened economic paradigm as
well as long-range environmental survival.
We now have the technology, the vision, and the inspiration to effectively organize
all people of conscience; regardless of race, color, culture or economic status, in
the most important quest in human history.
The age of technology and instantaneous media has
provided us with the tools to address and finally cure seemingly impossible

If your going to give, give
to Common Sense. Only through your support can Common Sense of America unite
the Activist Community. With your help, we can place previously
ignored yet, vital legislation as well as combined national
support behind an uncompromised Congress; by which legitimate
reforms may someday be passed to bring about positive and lasting
improvements. Only with your help can we rebuild our government
into one that is not-for-sale,, but will once again work on behalf
of the American people.

need you to be involved now. We have perhaps, a generation to shift the paradigm of human
behavior from consumption and exploitation, to one of conservation
and compassion. If
we fail, within a few decades, we will begin to experience what our descendents
will know every day of their lives: an environment suffering waves of species
extinctions and a societal community in irreversible decline.
We believe that there is a hero alive in each
and every American. This hero may only have one hour a week to give or
maybe this hero needs a little bit more information. Maybe this hero has no time to give,
and has all the information that he or she needs and can contribute only money. We know how to make one hero's hour,
and another hero's dollar work effectively together in
this important quest.
