Barack Obama Contribution Reminder
I’m happy to report that the people who read this blog have contributed $2,660 to Barack Obama in the last 5 days. That’s over 50% of the way to the target of raising $5000 by January 21st! Thanks everyone!
If you support Barack Obama and you haven’t yet donated to his primary campaign, please consider contributing now. If you’ve already given, consider giving again. The Nevada primary takes place January 19th, and South Carolina is just a week later (complete schedule). The outcome of these early primaries sets the tone for the states voting later. What happens in the next 4 days could be decisive in choosing our next president. And your contribution will make a real difference in mobilizing supporters to get out the vote in those critical contests.
So please don’t wait. Take action:
I believe that there are already a lot of Obama supporters out there who feel that he could do great things for this country, but who haven’t yet stepped up and supported him in any concrete way. If you’re one of those people, then now’s your chance: give $50 or $100 (or $500!) today so that we can have a president we will all be proud of.
If you support someone else for the Democratic nomination, or if you haven’t made up your mind yet and you want to learn more about Senator Obama, check out these links:
- Senator Obama’s talk at Google, the official Google blog about his talk, and the position statement on technology and innovation he unveiled there, which includes his support for net neutrality, and this groundbreaking promise:
I’ll put government data online in universally accessible formats. I’ll let citizens track federal grants, contracts, earmarks, and lobbyist contacts. I’ll let you participate in government forums, ask questions in real time, offer suggestions that will be reviewed before decisions are made, and let you comment on legislation before it is signed. And to ensure that every government agency is meeting 21st century standards, I’ll appoint the nation’s first Chief Technology Officer.
