Frank Moore Gathers Presidential Electors Nationwide For Groundbreaking Write-In Campaign

"The response of people on the street to our platform is overwhelming," said 2008 Write-In Presidential candidate Frank Moore this week in an interview with Radar Online*. Now Moore has turned to both his supporters and the general public from California to Maine in order to line up citizens nationwide who would be willing to stand for him in the Electoral College as Presidential Electors in what has become possibly the most interesting news story of this political season.

Moore, a world-renowned performance artist based in Berkeley, California, has put forth a comprehensive platform rivaling the major party candidates under the title, “The Just Makes Sense Party”. See: http://www.frankmooreforpresident08.com/

Moore’s grassroots campaign promises radical changes to the current system of politics and government in the U.S., bringing in what he calls, “a webwork of caring.” He writes that “is it all about caring and choice,” and proposes a guaranteed minimum income (GMI) for every U.S. citizen.

“Some people have expressed concerns that the guaranteed minimum income would drain people’s productivity. They ask why people would work. What they are really asking is why people would work without the whip of fear of hunger and poverty. They never ask this about the rich or the corporations, only about the working class and the poor. In reality most people want to work, want to contribute, want to improve their lives. Hunger, poverty, and fear drain productivity. If we are to survive, we need to end hunger, poverty, and fear.”

Moore needs electors pledged to him in many states to qualify to receive write-in votes in the November Presidential Election. For instance, in California, he will need 55 people to serve as electors -- otherwise, any write-in votes for Frank in the November election in California will not be counted.

The Moore/Block campaign (his running mate is Dr. Susan Block from Los Angeles) is calling for supporters to participate in an inspiring grassroots Presidential campaign by becoming his electors. As electors pledged to Frank Moore, they would place their "electoral vote" in the Electoral College for Moore if he wins the popular vote in their state. Being an elector for Frank Moore does not mean that they must vote for Frank in the November Presidential election ... however, Moore said that he welcomes everyone’s write-in vote in November. http://www.frankmooreforpresident08.com/be_an_elector.html
