A modest proposal
Look at the amount you have contributed to your candidate and use the same amount to donate to your local food bank or homeless shelter. And keep doing this each time you send your candidate more money.

This is really embarrassing. The candidates have raised - what - $300 million this year? Do we know how many people we can feed and shelter and provide medical care for that amount of money?

How many jobs we can provide - fixing the infrastructure of this country?

Yes, I know. Most came from fat donors at a $2,300 a pop, and perhaps there are some DUers who contributed that much.

But even if your contribution has been $15 or $20 - do match it with a donation to the poor.

Please.

1. Not a single comment?
How sad. And on DU of all places.

I will remember this comes Christmas when all the good souls will come out seeking donations for a worthy cause.
