I received the following email from Obama’s camp today:
If we win this election, it will be because of what you did in moments like this
to help close the spending gap.
Because this is real: Just last week alone, Mitt Romney’s campaign and his allies
outspent our side by at least three to one in North Carolina, Iowa, Michigan,
Minnesota, Colorado, and Pennsylvania, all states we need to win.
That could swing the election — but it doesn’t have to.
It doesn’t have to, if I donate $5 right now.
Like my $5 is going to help Obama outspend Mr. Moneybags. I don’t want Obama to lose, but I don’t want to be a part of “buying” him the privilege to be President. If Romney makes it it will be because he bought the votes. He might just as well have sent every Republican $50 if they promised to vote for him.
While I believe everyone has the right to vote, some of us just shouldn’t. I admit, it’s prejudiced, but really, should stupid people vote? I know that they do it–need I mention the George Bush Eras. If the second Bush Era taught America anything, it was that our elected officials should have greater than a “C” average in school.
For god’s sake, the demographics of the US says it all, the “red” states are in the same states with problems with racism, sexism, poverty, poor education, and heavy with fundamental religious groups. What does that tell us? Coincidence?
