Campaign contributions. Have you made them?

  1. I guess this could go on the Anything Goes board as well, but I thought with politics being a hot topic, this would fit here as well.

    So are there people here who have donated money to presidential candidates or other politicians? Does it really matter in the long run what the average citizen contributes to a presidential campaign? I know there are many ways to contribute to someone's camp, but does money have to be a significant one if you are serious about the candidate?

    Considering donor information is available to any GOP-funded organization willing to rat out a journalist, but not a GOP-leaning publisher, no, I have not made any campaign contributions. I'd rather have a job.

    Now would be a good place to mention to journalists -- do not buy T-shirts or anything else from candidates Web sites, either. Those get recorded as campaign contributions.
  4. That I was not aware of. The reason I ask is I feel compelled to do so, but not for a second think about what the Doc said.

    Yes I have.
  7. $25 is an option they give you if you want to contribute. Obviously that can hurt someone making 25k at a small newspaper.
