I'm a regular blue collar guy, and I just donated a years pay to McCain/Palin. I was worried sick about the rumors that he would go to Lindsey Graham, Leiberman, etc. McCain wasn't my first choice, but he picked a conservative. She's pro-life, a life member of the NRA, a hunter, and she just worked to build a new gas pipeline. She has a son headed to Iraq. She's young but already has far more executive experience than Obama. I've never heard her say God-D**m America. To me, she seems to be the personification of a Obamas' "bitter Americans" clinging to God and guns. Obama brother earns $12 a year, living in that branch and mud hut. I decided to say thank you to McCain. I sent him twelve dollars. That is one years' salary for Obamas' brother. It's a small gesture and I hope someone notices an avalanche of twelve dollar donations to McCain. He is only allowed to fundraise under the rules for one more day. It was simple to do, and I can skip two cheeseburgers. In the box where they ask who referred me, I simply wrote "Obama's brother who lives on 12 dollars a year". I believe in punishing politicians when they do wrong. But when they do right, we need to express thanks and thereby, train them as to what we want more of. In my opinion, a gun-owning, pro-lifer, deserves McCain understanding that he pleased me. If you can, and you agree, send McCain a one time 12 dollar donation today and fill in who referred you. It will be noticed.
Good title, great post. Nice work.
I gave my first $25 to the McCain campaign today.
I have been refraining from donating all these many months.
The selection of Palin is all I needed to see.
Now I want McCain-Palin to get elected.
Is your company hiring? :)
I donated to McCain today. Didn’t think I would. Put “Big Sarah Palin bump” in the referred box.
I'm seriously considering donating a year's pay (for Obama's Kenyan brother) to Palin/McCain as well.
Good thought. I just made my first donation to this campaign, and it took a long time to be able to log in to McCain’s donor site. And according to your calculus, I donated the equivalence of the Messiah’s brother’s salary up to December 1, 2016.
Good idea, I think I can spare 12 bucks.
Wow! You have a job???
They way Obama sounded last night, I thought nobody out there was working.
“She has a son headed to Iraq. “
Not doubting you, but, is that true?
As of yesterday I'd decided not to vote for him.
With his pick today of Sarah Palin for V.P., I donated $200 to their campaign and I'll vote for him come November.
Welcome to Free Republic. I must be in the upper crust as my yearly salary (donation) was $30. I guess BO thinks I have won life’s lottery.
I read that he will be deploying there on Sept 11.
I donated today too. I’m really excited about the ticket now. Palin has brought a whole new energy. I think we’ve found our Lady Thatcher.
In particular, I’m looking forward not just this election, but 2012 or 2016. Palin could be in a great place to move to the top of the ticket.
Palin/Jindal 2012. Dream team.
Paragraphs want to be your friends
They really do.
Yes, that’s true. The Palin’s eldest son enlisted in the Army a year ago and is set to deploy to Iraq in September.
Barbarians for Sarah Palin (front center)!
I read several newspaper accounts today that indicated her son named “Track” is a PFC and is headed to Iraq this fall. I don’t have unimpeachable evidence though.
