AS GOOD AS SEX!
I'm certainly not rich, but I don't have a lot of time to volunteer, especially since my work is on the road. Except for Katrina and the tsunami I normally haven't donated money because I'm just not in the habit of doing so, but when you hear shit like Mitt Romney, the republican candidate being so rich that he won't even need the president's salary--Jesus! Won't he be effectively representing the struggling people of this country half of whom can't afford health insurance? Are the spinelss democrats even representing a strong anti-war message and why the fuck aren't they? So I decided to give when I got this email from moveon.org, who truly represent the backbone of the democratic party.
We've got some work to do this summer.
For Republicans, we've got to show that they face political extermination if they keep siding with President Bush on the war. And for Democrats, we've got to make sure every last one of 'em is pushing to end this war—not standing on the sidelines acting helpless.
We've got a plan to do that—to put some of our best organizers and trained volunteers in the country in key districts nationwide to light a fire under Congress on the war. We'll build on our cutting-edge volunteer organizing network, Operation Democracy. We'll stage events to get our message out in the local media, organize meetings directly with the members of Congress, and generally raise hell.
These young organizers are ready to give it everything they've got, but they can't execute this plan for free.
Can you chip in $250 to put one Operation Democracy organizer on the ground for one day in a key district on Iraq? You can choose whether you want your support to go toward firming up the backbone of a Democrat or raising hell against a pro-Bush Republican. Click here to chip in now:
I only chipped in $100, but their thank you email made me feel like a million bucks:
