    of the donation -- it's what happens afterwards.

    We gave frequently and generously during the 2008 election cycle.

    Come 2009, the political phone calls, emails, junk mail, started again immediately.

    And in 2012 -- well, here in Denver we were receiving dozens of political phone calls per week.

    Until I have the ability to op out of at least political phone calls, I'm not donating.

      USPS money order??  You don't have to use your real name, to the best of my knowledge, as long as it is for a small enough amount.

      Sure it'll cost a buck or two extra, but if it keeps you off the calls/emails/junk mail rolls...isn't it worth it?

      Plus.....you'll be able to really help candidates who need it.

      Just an idea.

      We cannot call ourselves a civilised society if we refuse to protect the weakest among us.

      lists. I got 31, yes, THIRTY-ONE calls from the DSCC and DCCC within 16 days, part of them while I was in Hawaii. One call came at 5:44 am, because they did not know that I was in Hawaii. And I didn't answer the damn calls.

      It took speaking to three people, from different groups, but I explained politely that the calls pissed me off so much that I was completely disinclined to give, and that I was bombarded with emails, too. I don't mind the emails because i read them when I want. One guy, even after I told him I wasn't donating because I was pissed off, said, "Well, I understand that, but would you consider donating today?" I admit that I shouted, "NO! Weren't you listening?" and hung up on him, but oh well. I hate being PUSHED.

      The calls have completely stopped. Be of firm voice and good cheer =)
