Super(Fat) Tuesday has come and gone, and despite a growing tide in favor of Barack Obama, it was not enough to take him over the top. This is the year we can all have the opportunity to vote for a president that represents a real change for the better in Washington, but only if he can win out in the Democratic primaries. For that reason, I made my first donation to a presidential campaign this year, and I hope that you will join me. Together, I hope that we can put $2,500 in the coffers of Obama’s campaign, and do so soon enough that it will make a difference in our country over the next four years.
Is that difference worth the equivalent of a night at the movies for two, or your most recent Amazon purchase? Just a few dollars–from enough people–is all that is needed to make a significant difference. As Americans, we dream of a President who is honest and wise. We want a leader with courage and integrity who has known the struggles of an everyday American. A lot of people have stopped believing that may even be possible.
Oh, did I mention he actually “gets” the tech? Check out the differences in technology policies highlighted on TechCrunch. That’s one of the reasons Lawrence Lessig is supporting him (turn up the volume to listen to his 20-minute talk). The New York Times has recently suggested that he is the Mac to Clinton’s PC.
Please join me in supporting Obama by making a donation to my personal fundraising page. If every US citizen that visits my blog donated $5, we would blow out that $2,500 in a matter of days. It may take a little longer than that, but I hope you will help.
