Which I feel called upon to make before election day: I have been overwhelmed with e-mails with panic-stricken titles, begging me for money for candidates. I don't know about you, but I'm receiving at least 40 to 50 a day. I just can't deal with it, even though my interest in politics is obviously much greater than the average person's. Except for a couple of names (e.g. Sherrod Brown, Elizabeth Warren) I just delete them en masse, resulting in my political contributions this time around probably being lower than in a normal election year.
Sorry, I'm only one person, and I just can't deal with it. I suspect a lot of other people are feeling the same way. Five hundred or a thousand begging mass e-mails are simply not a workable answer to the Koch brothers. As long as elections are about nothing but who has the most money, we are screwed. We'd better find a way to take these anti-American rich sociopaths out of the picture, because they have seen to it that the whole rest of the country doesn't have enough money to compete with them when the whole game is about buying politicians.
