Okay, I'd like to know why I'm suddenly receiving contribution pleas from Bernie Sanders

Never voted for the man, never made a contribution to his campaign. I donated to Hillary Clinton in 2016 and have donated to Joe Biden this cycle.

That's it.

Yet today, I received another plea for money with the enticement that any contribution entitles the contributor to a copy of "Our Revolution."

No, thank you.

I've been sending my donations through ACTBLUE. Is there some sort of connection there because if there is I'm going to be pissed that my email address has been handed out.

Btw, I've received no donation plea from any other candidate. Biden's inquiries I expect. Bernie Sanders? Not so much.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden

Thu Dec 12, 2019, 12:36 PM
Dec 2019

priceless Clinton campaign data in the DNC's data storage system. Remember how indignant the staffers' famously micro-manager boss was when the DNC sanctioned him for wrongdoing?

After they were caught and he'd tried to make it go away by apologizing to the victim of the breach, he became so outraged at the injustice that he launched one of his lawsuit performances to "prove" it was they who victimized him.

The lawsuit strategy ended, as usual, after the media reported its beginning, with his quietly withdrawing the suit before the discovery phase would have required both parties to provide evidence showing crime or lack of it.

to use any that was illegally obtained in public mailings, and certainly nothing through the USPS.

They initially said they only downloaded it out of curiosity, to see if it was really what they thought it was; then they realized they were completely innocent victims of the evil DNC and went on the attack. Four months later:

Politico, 4/29/2016: Sanders campaign withdraws lawsuit against DNC In its statement on Friday announcing the withdrawal, Sanders’ campaign also strongly maintained that it never deliberately stole information.


The claim that they never deliberately stole priceless campaign data from an opponent is, of course, given credibility by their otherwise unimpeachably ethical behaviors.

So, I wrote them back and informed them that I was [/b]insulted that they were scolding a disabled veteran/senior citizen, who lives on a disability pension and cannot work, for failing to contribute within the 24 hour time frame they had demanded. Then I told them to stop texting me.

Then the next week, I started getting e-mail requests from AOC. I don't even live in NYC. It took FIVE tries to get un-subscribed.

I got one from the RNC about a month ago asking how I felt about the fantastic and amazing Donald J. Trump. I told them exactly what I thought about Donald J. Trump, but "fantastic and amazing" were not among the descriptors used. I did however include a donation: A nice shiny "penny for my thoughts". The GOP won't go down for a penny,

I've been voting since 1968 and have never voted for a republican. So how did I get on the RNCs shit list? Either someone is fucking with me, or it was completely random. I don't think I'll ever receive another.

I get emails from all sorts of people I've never voted for or donated to. I haven't gotten one from Bernie, yet.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden

I do donate to Dems that I think have a chance to win so I’m sure they are passing around email addresses

Their numbers absolutely cratered after 2016. Was that the high mark of the revolution?

check their slogans to see if they'd been used before.

"Our Revolution" is pretty generic, except I hear Lenin talking.

It was a text message but the person addressed it to someone else (didn't lead with my name). It was to my personal cell phone. That number isn't widely available.

Call and ask where they are getting their lists.

Could be from the russians through one of the many consultants they have out there using the stolen voter registration info they grabbed, or from the gop lists they have access to.

What I found interesting was that my son got a mailer from the trump campaign. He has never contacted them, and doesn't fall into any of their demographics. But he did apply to the air force (he was turned down because at one point he had childhood asthma).

Is the trump admin accessing armed forces recruiting info to target mailers?

For all the rhetoric of revolution by the hipster sans-coulettes crowd, Sanders' campaign seems little different than any other faltering political campaign that's never gotten past second gear... simply another beltway-insider millionaire asking for money.

62. I received a text from Sanders' campaign and I have never signed up or given my number.

I can only assume that a friend handed over a list of mobile phone numbers of people they know.

It's off-putting to me to receive an unsolicited text and I replied with STOP immediately. I think that blocks whoever is texting because I haven't received any more messages.
