Friend --

We're getting outraised -- a first for a sitting president, if this continues. Not just by the super PACs and outside groups that are pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into misleading ads, but by our opponent and the Republican Party, which just outraised us for the second month in a row.

We can win a race in which the other side spends more than we do. But not this much more.

So I need your help. If you believe that regular people should decide elections, then please chip in $3 or more today.

This isn't about me or the outcome of one election.

This election will be a test of the model that got us here. We'll learn whether it's still true that a grassroots campaign can elect a president -- whether ordinary Americans are in control of our democracy in the face of massive spending.

I believe we can do this. When all of us chip in what we can, when we can, we are the most powerful force in politics.

But today is the day to prove it. Donate now:

Thank you -- for everything you've done before and everything you're doing now. It matters.

Barack

Does it bother you greatly that Obama is raising money from a significantly larger amount of people than Mitt?

250,000 more donors than Romney in May alone, obviously his donation messaging is reaching a large amount of people and that is good because if people donate they will certainly vote.

This must be welfare monies he's gathering. There should be a minimum intelligence level required for voting.

I got my bumper sticker

listen

if a LARGER AMOUNT of people are giving our pennies to the President of these United States of America, than the few super billionaires giving oodles of secret money to Mitt, than democracy states the larger number of people wins, right?

not any more
money talks

I disagree completely, I believe you should have the right to vote.

Is America a Democracy now? That'd certainly be a "fundamental change". America is a Republic. The Federalist papers explain why.

So does this:

Yeah, flood the voting pool with people with 70 IQ's. It gives Democrats a win once in a while if they can "rock the vote".

Good link on the difference. I can't tell how many people graduate Social Studies who still think that our country is the greatest of all democracies.

Does it bother you that people like Ron Perelman who donated and fund raised for Obama in 2008 have bailed on him.

Scanlon, let me be the first of many to thank you for putting an Obama sticker on your car. That's got to be worth a ton of votes for Romney from the people who know of you.

Politically, I like the sign on one yard pointing to the next door neighbor's stating "They don't have guns. I do."
