    And part of something big.

    It still feels that way. Three million of my brother and sister Americans are able to put in a bit of there hard-earned cash to invest in our future. And there are more who can't afford to do so, but will volunteer and vote.

    I can't imagine what it's like to be a Republican and know that the vast amount of your candidate's funding comes from a very few billionaires.

    It shows when each of the candidates speak, and what they talk about. As President Obama said, at the RNC convention, they talked a lot about him; they talked about Romney. But they never talked about us, the average Americans.

    Great diary. I feel a third donation coming on, if you'll please excuse me...

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.

      of life, every age group, from countless activist groups is the true donation.  The time and ideas and spirit they have given and will be giving will never be fully counted.  From OFA to Move On to League of Women Voters to unions, to Black churches, to AARP, to the tireless diary writers on Kos and many other sites, there are people working like their lives depend on it to beat back the tide of racism, classism and I think downright fascism that threatens us all.

      The accounting of the monetary donations sends the same message, Yes We Can do more together!
