****KICK THIS THREAD AND DONATE $5 IF YOU NEVER WANT TO SAY THE WORDS 'President McCain'!!***
Edited on Sat Nov-01-08 05:23 PM by beac
Or worse yet, "President Palin"!!

We are only $14,579 away from meeting our DU goal of $125K.

As some of you may have heard, McInsane and the RNC currently have a $20 MILLION cash advantage. AND those hateful Reverend Wright ads are running 24/7 all weekend.

Remember that it's not just the Electoral College, but the popular vote that will give Obama an UNQUESTIONABLE mandate. So, even in the states he doesn't win, we need to have a good showing.

These guys have done a BRILLIANT job so far and if they say they need more, I believe them.


SO, how about it DUers?? Who's in for a :kick: and $5???

(and by ALL MEANS give more if you can! :) )

:applause:

All right all you other DUers.... almost FIFTY of you have looked at this thread and so far sasha031 is the only donor!

Imagine how great that homemade PB&J will taste instead of a deli-bought sandwich when you're eating staring at the "OBAMA WINS!" headline on Wednesday!

13. The election is in 3 days. He has $150 MILLION!!! Why does he need more money?
Edited on Sat Nov-01-08 08:51 PM by Breeze54
I got 6 e-mails yesterday and today from different people from various groups
including 2 from the Obama campaign asking me for money. They're 3 days out!!

Why do they need even MORE $$? :wtf:

I gave what I could afford already. I'm broke.

Moving is very expensive. Sorry. No can do.

No will do.

14. If you are tapped out, you are tapped out and THANK YOU for all you've given, BUT
I believe them if they say they need it.

We trusted them to bring us this far and I truly hope that anyone who can spare a few dollars will kick in.

Peace. :hi:

18. Sorry but I'm doubtful after what Kerry did....
Edited on Sat Nov-01-08 11:13 PM by Breeze54
He had millions and kept asking for more $$ just before the election on '04 and then kept what was left over.
He donated some, I think but kept a lot of it. $150 million is a lot of money. BTW? E-mail from Obama campaign
asked for $5.00 this afternoon. Tonight they sent another one asking for a minimum of $30.00. :crazy:

I think that's the big lesson of this election, if we all watch out for one another and pull together we can move mountains. I think the "YES WE CAN" spirit will help us reclaim our country and restore our honor.

28. "President Palin"
would be a worse nightmare than Bush. Seriously. But I don't understand, when has the McCain campaign ever had more money than ours? Hasn't Obama had something like three to four times the money all along? I'm confused.

21. I believe it has to do with 'cash available'. I know the RNC is taking out LOANS in addition to
getting big dollar donations.

I imagine the Obama campaign has already committed its money to various things-- offices, staffers, ads set to run before they realized they could compete in AZ, etc-- and they need this last cash infusion to a) rack up the highest popular vote total possible and b) combat the GOP's '72-hour strategy' which looks like it will involve a LOT more dirty tricks before Monday is over.

I TRUST Barack and his team and I was happy to put a little more on my credit card knowing that the return on my investment will be 100 times greater than money I gave. :)

Did you know you can phonebank right from your house?: http://my.barackobama.com/page/content/phonebankmap

Of course, the MOST important thing is to VOTE and make sure you get everyone around you to vote too!!

64. I started a thread before I saw this one, so I am kicking. I just donate $100. I think I am over
$2300, but I thought I would rather risk jail or fines or whatever the penalty is than leave anything on the table. But then, I saw at the website that anything over $2300 automatically gets allocated to the DNC.

I started donating last December because "early money is like yeast." (What EMILY's list stand for, but early money works the same way for male candidates.) I was in the first million donors. I am so proud of that.

Please keep me company tonight. Donate one last time. The battleground states are tightening. Don't leave a one of them on the table. Please. Any amount you can--and the best amount you can.

Blessings.
