Democracy is dead

I just recieved this email from the Obama Campaign:

Romney and the Republicans announced yesterday that they brought in more than $100 million in June.

For context, that’s about what we raised in April and May combined.

We’re still tallying our own numbers, but this means their gap is getting wider, and if it continues at this pace, it could cost us the election.

We need to reverse this trend — and we need to start now. Will you make a donation of $4 or more today?

Because you’ve saved your payment information, your donation will go through immediately:


     — QUICK DONATE: $35

      — QUICK DONATE: $50

       — QUICK DONATE: $100

      — QUICK DONATE: $250

Or donate another amount.

One hundred million is alarming enough, but it doesn’t even include the millions pouring into pro-Romney super PACs — or the fact that, unlike four years ago, it’s perfectly legal for the Koch brothers, Sheldon Adelson, Karl Rove, and anonymous billionaires to funnel unlimited money into attacking President Obama in critical battleground states.

I’m proud of the way we build this organization. Through the primaries, more than three-quarters of our donations were from people giving less than $1,000. Meanwhile, in that same period, Mitt Romney’s campaign raised three-quarters of its money from people giving $1,000 or more.

If we don’t take this seriously now, we risk finding ourselves at a point where there is too much ground to make up.

 We need to do something about it. Today.

Please donate $4 or more:

 More to come.

Obama for America

I don’t know about anyone else, but I am sick to death of this shit. It’s not simply a suggestion that the White House can be bought – it is now a plain and obvious fact.

Democracy in America is dead and gone. The WhiteHouse is up for grabs by anyone who can afford it, regardless of their political acumen or plans for the nation.

I’m sick of it and in the true spirit of cutting off my nose to spite my face, I refuse to donate any more cash to this dog and pony show. America is going to Hell in a handbasket and the Republicans are paying for the one-way ticket.

Wake me up when the circus is over. I never did much enjoy dancing elephants and talking asses anyway.
