HRC sent me a request for Money today

Included in her pitch was this statement:


"I face a worthy opponent for the Democratic nomination. And right now, he is outraising us and outspending us."

Really?

Open Secrets.org, a site of the Center for Responsive Politics, tracks financial contributions and reports that HRC's campaign has raised about $34 million more than BS's campaign (lots of maxed out donors) and she has raised another $54mil through her SuperPacs.


HRC's request for money came with a response card with a big "YES" to check off before telling her how much I would send. I wrote in a similarly sized "NO." Then I said suggested she ask George Soros, Citibank and Chase. And I asked her not to bother me again.

1. Better send her a dollar just in case...

2. Why does she need our money?

She pulls in enough contributions from Big Corporate Donors, that she should leave us the hell alone.

And given that the Powers that Be count the votes in her favor, leaving Bernie without legitimately earned wins, I can't figure out why we even go through the electoral process.

At the beginning of an election year, shouldn't the One Percent just announce who has won already?

3. Yeah, I can do math too

First off I would donate to Vermin Supreme before Hillary. Plus for every dollar donated by a new supporter her average amount per donor drops. She's trying to be Bernie.

4. The other pitch is asking for just $1.

She is desperate to be able to change her saying she has raised millions from small donors to saying she has millions of small donors. A funny thing is that most of her angling lately reminds me of her supporter Al Franken's Air America show. He used to always decry "weasel words".

6. My husband got that one too.

I put $0.00 in the OTHER box and wrote on the comments, "We gave all our money to Bernie. Please drop out".

She did not seem to think that this was a done deal.

9. It takes a lot of chutzpah

For a political candidate who makes $225,000 for one hour speeches to corporate interests to beg people who make a fraction of that in a year for money. Particularly when she is going to sell them out in favor of her large donors if she gets the Presidency.

10. I think they should be called "buyers," not donors

 

O ran a United Way Agency for years. People who gave us money did not expect us to do anything other than perform our stated mission of helping folks who needed our help. They were "donors."

I find it hard to believe that the people the President met with today or the million dollar+ "donors" to HRC's pacs are anything but "buyers."

I give Bernie a few dollars when I can, but I expect from him only what he has always said he would do.

Just as I find it hard to believe that a "Democrat" who has already taken tens of million dollars from such people will seriously try to do away with Citizens United. I hate to say it, but it seems to me she us the poster child for Citizens United.
