Dean, Edwards, Kennedy and Gen. Clark – Stop Begging already!

Are we electing a President or crowning a Prince of the Paupers?


Between Obama asking for change, Clinton demanding change and the top dogs of the Democratic party emailing me every other day (6 times in the last 11 days??? Are you joking?) begging for donations I’m really starting to question my faith in this “Hey Buddy, can you spare a dime?” party.

Yes, I want a Democrat in the White House! Yes, I want to correct our nation’s broken course! But not as groveling pan-handlers.

I want it to get better, I want us as a nation to do better, but I want it to happen because we recognize it’s the right thing to do at the right time to do it–and I believe that’s exactly why it will happen this November.

If you Democrats believe that the only way to win the White House is by begging then I don’t want you Democrats in charge anyway.

Be smarter, display a little more faith in we the people.

There have been monumental shifts in our short history, starting with our revolt against the King. They occurred not because leaders were willing to crawl on hands and knees begging people to give… but because true leaders offered guidance to the already willing and ready to mobilize masses.

Democrats are in a position to do that once again right now. You just have to stop reaching for our wallets at every turn and start reaching for those reins.

  1. Really, its like the party of the people doesn’t understand that we people are drowning in debt, losing our homes and fighting to feed our families. Could they be any more out of touch with the people there supposed to represent?

  2. Democrat candidate: begs for your money

    Elected Democrat: takes you money by taxes

    Any questions?

  3. To be fair and clear, both parties and candidates of each require donations from supporters to be competitive. I completely understand and accept that in our system.

    My problem is with the constant hard selling coming across every other day in my Inbox.

    I get less frequent and demanding pitches from Internet Marketing gurus during a product launch than I’ve been getting from the DNC recently.

    They need to slow down and get a better strategy or risk losing faithful members (and votes) soon.
