Fundraising Deadline Tonight
— JohnE.

Homestretch time. You know what to do.

"The Roman Republic fell, not because of the ambition of Caesar or Augustus, but because it had already long ceased to be in any real sense a republic at all. When the sturdy Roman plebeian, who lived by his own labor, who voted without reward according to his own convictions, and who with his fellows formed in war the terrible Roman legion, had been changed into an idle creature who craved nothing in life save the gratification of a thirst for vapid excitement, who was fed by the state, and directly or indirectly sold his vote to the highest bidder, then the end of the republic was at hand, and nothing could save it. The laws were the same as they had been, but the people behind the laws had changed, and so the laws counted for nothing."
- President Theodore Roosevelt

Get involved.

1 Yes ... get involved. Vote in November.

2 .. and donating is a very good idea.

3 Which deadline is it tonight?

4 I don't know. Could be for Federal matching funds.

6 But wait, Jon and Gerg told me it was over and Obama won already...

7 That TR quote shamed me into $50.

As November gets closer I think the sense of "it's now or never if we want to see America continue" gains more meaning.

10 Bucks help. Convincing 5 people on the fence to vote for Mitt and driving them to the polls would be even better.

13 Why $15?

14 $15 appears to be the minimum programmed in with a button.   There is the 'other' category.

15 It's wrong of me to want GB to get screwed over by the regular refs, isn't it?

Posted by: alexthechick - SMOD/Whiteboard 2012 at September 30, 2012 02:35 PM (Gk3SS)

16 No hablo espanol.

Posted by: Soona at September 30, 2012 02:36 PM (DPdjT)

17 From Rasmussen's match-up today: "43% of voters are “certain” they will vote for Romney. 42% are certain they will vote for Obama. The remaining 15% are either uncommitted or open to changing their mind.....There is particular pessimism among these persuadable voters about the economy. Only 14% think it will get better if the president is reelected. But just 28% believe it will improve with a Romney victory." So Mitt has a 14 pt advantage with undecided voters on the issue most important to them. And we are supposed to believe the race is over? Just sent some change to Mitt. Thanks for the reminder.

Wouldn't you love to see a poll of what percentage are certain they won't vote for each candidate? That would be telling....

86 The statement that "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing" is often attributed to Burke. Burke never said this but, in 1770, he wrote in Thoughts on the Cause of the Present Discontents that "when bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle."

I'd say, ladies and gentlemen, it is time to associate and donate to Romney/Ryan if you can.

121 I ordered yard signs, too. I expect those to be heisted from my yard within a week, but maybe I'll get lucky and catch the bastards in the act. One can only hope.

126 And, JohnE, you could not have picked a better quote. My blood is boiling, and that quote will be posted as my FB status tomorrow, with an invitation for people to defriend me. Soap, I am irritated that we ordered bumperstickers about a month ago and haven't seen a thing. I'm suspicious that AZ is slow to get stuff because maybe we're safe. Anyway, Imma gonna hit the local R HQ tomorrow to pick up some stickers. Our yard sign has been up a few weeks and hasn't been touched.

127 I expect those to be heisted from my yard within a week, You could put, "Warning: Mine!" next to them. That way you're covered when they explode violently upon being uprooted.

128 123) coat the back and border in grease and bury the wire as deep as possible. Stack bricks behind it if possible. Makes it harder to yank/kick. If that doesn't work, get a custom made "An Obama Supporter Stole My Romney Sign" sign.

130 On the topic of signs, I have to laugh. Our neighbor has a TFG sign that's been up since August and it's all bent and saggy. I made some straight holes with a hammer and rebar for my R/R sign and it's still nice and taut.

There are Romney -Ryan yardsigns starting to pop up in my town.  Somebody had a homemade "MITT!" sign on their porch yessterday.

Go ahead, tell me Obama is leading in Ohio.

Of course I saw 10 Obama yards signs in Bexley the other night just driving a  mile up Cassidy Avenue.  Bexley is a postage stamp suburb of mostly rich people surrounded by Columbus.

133 Fox News reports that   Obama is on his way to 270  in electoral votes.  I sent them a nice goodbye email.  They suck  just like their liberal  media friends.

135 Always thought that not making kids take Latin would lead to the end of the Republic.   But I suppose its really the annihilation of the western Cannon that no Latin is symptomatic of, that is the problem.

136 Done. Will send more right after the debate. Please do so if you can. Large post-debate Romney fundraising will belie MFM spin.

$100 to R&R, along with $40 in signs

$100 to Josh Mandel, along with $15 in stickers.

 

Everyone, please adopt Mandel as your senator away from home... We need him in Ohio.

141 Thanks for the support, NewBrunswicker. Out of curiosity, what part of the province are you in? We lived for a year (2009) in the New Maryland area of Freddy. Had a fantastic time, and gained a much better appreciation of how lovely Canada is.

142 Donated $100 last month, and just kicked in another $50. All I can do now. I got off my ass Saturday and went down to the precinct office. Signed up, gave the chairwoman my cell number, told her I was tired of complaining and want to help. Told her I was taking Nov. 6th off and offered to drive folks to the polls or do whatever. She gave me her cell number and a committee membership form. Going to fill it out and pay the dues. Hopefully they will put me to work. Feels good to get out and do something. I'm not much of a flesh-presser or bullshitter but I live in an area in VA with lots of elderly folks, so hopefully I can cart 20 or 30 to the polls, or be a gopher, or something to drag these fucking RINOs across the finish line.

144 Everyone please go to Obama for America dot com and request a donation packet by mail.

Then send them a check for 2 cents.

Repeat this as often as you can.

Between the cost of the mailer, the prepaid postage and the processing fee to cash that 2 cent check, if enough people do this we can bankrupt the campaign of that god forsaken mother fucking stuttering clusterfuck of a miserable failure within one month.

145 112 Word is that Mitt Romney's campaign team is preparing several "zingers" to surprise Obama with during the debate Wednesday.

I hear that a "jug ears" joke is in the works.

149 December 23, 1776, Thomas Paine
THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated.
Please donate, Morons and 'ette's, if you possibly can, to Romney tonight before the quarter's deadline. You are, as Levin says, "standing on the shoulders of our Founding Fathers." "They came here because of liberty!"

I am not a huge Levin fan...but there is a great pep-talk on rightscoop.com
It is 11 minutes of fight.

I love the quote above, "the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph."

"We can win this. Fight. Vote.We will triumph."

151 Another $25 from me. Tally from this thread so far: $2,455 with multiple others having donated but not given their amount. Now if #105 is serious and they just maxed out then the total is $4,955.

154 $30.00 here and a bumper sticker and button. Will do more after debate also. And again at the end of the month. Wish I had more to give.

155 $75 here. Gawd I hope Mitt is just holding back the brass knucks until all eyes are on the debates. Please gawd...Oh, krapp, they just showed a new ad where Mitt looks good, except for the part where he says Obama "cares about the middle class," ahhhhhAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!! Why not just trot out McLame to swear he's "honorable"??!! Why make this pathetic verbal concession that can't conceivably gain you anything?! Fuck it, if he blows it I'm off to the Golan, I hear Israel needs some more border scouts up there...

Ok. 50 bucks for Mitt, 3 bumper stickers and a new yard sign. My last one was stolen. This one is going to be coated with lard and placed in front of the window that my two 100 lb dogs look out. If they come near it, the dogs get a chance at a free meal.

Here is Ohio, the O ads have been back to back. They have been running the long one, I think he's talking about his "budget" and then a short one is right after. I change the channel when he come on. I have seen maybe 2 Romney ads all weekend. Don't know what's up with Romney, but we sure could use an October surprise, or any kind of surprise.

$100 bucks for Mitt (most I've ever given at one time to anyone) ...

On the East Coast and got in shortly after midnight ... will it count for this quarter?
