    The have publicly stated they are not affiliated with this Party.

    It is not a group which cares at all about our electoral or policy success.

    •  Just sent this email to the OFA contact (19+ / 0-)

      address, support@barackobama.com, after unsubscribing from their annoying fundraising emails this morning (reposted from a comment in a diary that has since scrolled off). I know that it is farting in the breeze, but it felt good to at least try to let them know the level of disgust I now feel.

      Subject: Please delete my account and contact information
      I supported the initial election campaign, the reelection campaign, and I donated every dime to those efforts I could afford: check your records. I have now been rewarded by seeing a budget proposal that cuts Social Security.

      Cuts Social Security. A program that does not contribute to the deficit. A program that I have been paying into since my first day of work.

      That just crossed the line: you have now completely and permanently lost my support. That goes beyond mere betrayal. You are now simply a Republican, and I do not, have not, and will never support a Republican. That was, without a doubt, absolutely the most thoughtless political move to which I have ever been witness.

      I strongly suspect that nobody reads these emails, and I now know without a doubt that nobody cares- but I felt a need to let you know exactly how I feel. All that is left is to vote with my feet.

      As of this morning I have unsubscribed from your fundraising emails, and want nothing more to do with Obama, OFA, or anything that you are willing to touch- or that is willing to touch you. I want you to remove my contact information from the databases you send out to other like-minded politicians. Communications from anyone who is willing to degrade Social Security are not even worth my time to move to the trash.

      Shame.

      ...contact info deleted...

      They'd do well to add a button to the web site to allow people to delete themselves: it is conspicuous by its absence...
