Please Send Money
We send money to candidates, but it’s not impulsive, in response to a plea from a fundraiser working on commission. It’s more likely a monthly payment to chosen candidates. Meanwhile, I get a string of emails which ask me my opinion on issues, or try to engage me in some way. But there has never been one yet that cared what I think, not in the slightest.
It would be smart, I think, if the Democratic Party had a database of people who are already giving them money, and put them on a different mailing list, thanking them for their support. I don’t ever answer any questions anymore because I know they are not the candidates but a fund raising company. Of course they are asking for money. It’s how they make money. They could care less about anything else. Asking me anything is just baiting the hook.
I know that it doesn’t matter what I say in one of these polls asking what’s important to me. I answered one from the Trump campaign, and I guarantee if anybody looked at what I was answering they would not be sending me all this email. I pointed out the deceptiveness of the statements about the COVID 19 response. I find it enraging that Trump pretends he did a good job when he did nothing at all except say it was going to go away on its own and that some people wear a mask as a personal insult to him. He is not that important, he’s just branding.
Yet the fundraising emails from Trump arrive every day. The fundraising emails from Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and dozens of democratic candidates arrive every day. They are like a homeless guy I used to see on 9th Avenue in San Francisco. I’d give him a buck and go into the bakery. When I came out he’d ask for money again. He just asked for money mindlessly. He didn’t see anybody beyond that.
