I gave the Obama campaign $50 for 2012 - reluctantly. I guess I think it's worth $50 to support Obama in his last year even though I am very disappointed in his leadership. We are still at war and turning into a police state.
After the campaign thanked me I replied to Rufus as copied below, since I doubt that Rufus will ever read it or that I will ever hear from him.
I wish Obama would stand up to the corporate gangsters and their political sycophants. Right now I'm saving my money and real organizing efforts for a program much more progressive than the Obama administration. If no more progressive group arises and Obama continues to be weak, I guess I'd better save my money for the coming hard times.
Thank you for your generous donation of 50.00.
This movement has always measured our strength not just in dollars but in the number of people who step up to own a piece of this campaign.
Will you take the next step and recruit five friends to join you today?
It’s quick and easy on our grassroots fundraising pages, and you’ll be playing a key role in bringing new people into the fold for 2012. Get started here:
Whether you bring in one new donor or 10, you’re building the foundation of this campaign -- and I think you’ll be surprised at how much you can do in a short time.
This movement would not be possible without supporters like you.
Thank you again for your generosity,
Rufus Gifford National Finance Director Obama for America
