Editor's Note: There is something refreshing about this presidential election cycle. We are hearing the word “love” coming out of the mouths of a couple of democratic candidates. Candidate and Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard just a few months ago spoke of the need for love to help to solve our problems domestically and in the world at large. Candidate Marianne Williamson has not been afraid to bring a message of love on to the campaign trail and the debate stage. She stated in the most recent debate, for example: “Mr. President, if you're listening, I want you to hear me, please. You have harnessed fear for political purposes and only love can cast that out.” She is following through with more of this kind of positive energy, with a showing of great generosity, as you will see in the article below. This is the kind of sentiment we need in politics. It is important to have vigorous and robust debate, and even to talk about uncomfortable or difficult issues, but if we can do so with positivity and emotional resilience, our country will be all the better for it.

American author and 2020 Democratic candidate Marianne Williamson's campaign team sent out a fundraising email on Sunday asking her supporters to help out her 2020 rival, former Alaska Senator Mike Gravel, whose long shot campaign is “nearing its conclusion.”


Williamson's campaign on Sunday sent out an email asking people to donate to her opponent Gravel — who served as a U.S. Senator from Alaska from 1969 to 1981 — because he's “only 10,000 donations short of qualifying for the July debates.”

“Thanks to you, I'm on the debate stage. And that's why today I'm using this platform, granted to me by you, to ask for your help,” Williamson wrote in the email.

“You may not have heard of him,” she continued, referring to Gravel, “because he hasn't yet qualified for any debates. But his voice is important.”

Williamson went on to praise the former senator, who also ran for the presidency as a Democrat in 2008.

“During his time in Senate, he garnered wide respect for his unabashed opposition to the Vietnam War and for reading the Pentagon Papers into the Congressional Record, risking expulsion from the Senate. Democracy is, by definition, for the people and by the people. Democracy thrives when brave men like Mike Gravel risk their careers to do what's just and right,” she said, before asking her supporters and anyone else receiving emails from her campaign to “please send him to the July debate stage by donating $1 to the Mike Gravel campaign.”

The email came days after Gravel said his campaign is “nearing its conclusion” and asked followers to make suggestions for where he should donate any left-over funds.


In a tweet on Friday, Gravel wrote: “The campaign is nearing its conclusion, and we're wondering where to donate the left-over funds. (Flint is a great cause but doesn't seem to be in the greatest need at the moment.) Any thoughts on the most deserving charity? Should we just stick to Flint?”

Gravel noted in a later tweet that “the campaign is not over yet” and that he was “still trying to qualify” for upcoming debates.

After Williamson's email on Sunday, Gravel shared a visualization depicting a bump in contributions to his campaign.”The @marwilliamson bump is in full effect,” he wrote.

    I agree with the editor’s note that I find it somewhat courageous to hear people wanting to enter politics with a different message. I believe Marianne Williamson does want to send the message of love but in all honesty the way she came off at the debate did not feel like love and that may be her problem. She’s been on the preaching end but now she will be really challenged to actualize her sentiment in a very tough arena. The same goes for Tulsi Gabbard. She is my congresswoman and because I thought she would be a different kind of politician I called on her for help. I did not receive that help but a few months later she used the exact same problem with another person who could be used for a photo op and that person did get what they needed. So I’m learning to watch for what the person says vs what action they take. Action will win over words with me.
