7. one thing I think is curious

is why did all these people suddenly decide "hey, I am gonna start a 501c4 so I can save this country".

Is that where I have gone wrong? I should have started a 501c4 called, let's say "End Austerity and Reaganomics Now" or EARN, for short. And having done that, the money would start flowing in from rich liberals like George Soros and Bill Gates Sr. and Bill Maher. And I could make a nice $40,000 a year salary off of my non-profit and just spend my days writing fund-raising letters and emailing screeds against the Bush tax cuts (which I have been writing anyway, to an audience of about 4 on DU).

I bet it is hard to get rich donors though when your raison d'etre is to raise their taxes.
