We Need the Barack Obama of 2008 Back

Now more than ever, we need the Barack Obama we elected in 2008—the smart, tough, hopeful progressive champion who inspired millions of us—to stand up and say "no" to a millionaire bailout.

So we're asking MoveOn members nationwide to record a video message from the heart to tell President Obama to go to the mat to stop any extension of the millionaire tax giveaways—and to bring back the progressive fighter we all knew and supported in 2008.

Can you record and upload a video today? Check out the example to the right, and just follow the steps below:

1 Your Contact Information

2 Create & Share Your Video

a) Create your video:

Record a short (45 seconds or less) video of yourself sharing a message with President Obama, urging him to stand and fight against the millionaire tax bailout. Speak from the heart and use your own words to let him know that you want the Obama you remember from 2008—a smart, tough progressive—back. (you can see a sample video, above.)

Then, upload the video to a website like YouTube or Vimeo, and copy the URL.

b) Share your video:

Petitions and Surveys

For petitions and surveys you've signed or completed, we treat your name, city, state, and comments as public information - for example, we may provide compilations of petitions, with your comments, to the President and legislators, other targets, or to the press. We will not make your street address publicly available, but we may transmit it to members of Congress and to the President as part of a petition. This is a standard industry practice in such situations. In no such case will we disclose your email address or phone number without your permission. We may also make your comments, along with your first name, city, and state available to the press and public online.

Under circumstances where we determine that members may be misusing our systems for malicious purposes (for example, using the numbers we provide to make harassing phone calls), such activities may be reported to law enforcement agencies. In such cases, MoveOn may release personally identifiable information, including name and address, to those agencies.
