This election would make a novelist blush: the voices of ordinary folks are being drowned out by a flood of anonymous corporate cash, channelled into major races by Republican groups helmed by Karl Rove and other Bush-era figures. All the while, the largest news channel on television flaunts its "fair and balanced" credentials while cutting million dollar checks to Republican groups and the Chamber of Commerce, accused of funneling foreign money in our elections to benefit the GOP, responds with nothing more than, "we're not, trust us."
It's ugly out there, but you're not powerless.
ActBlue is working to put you back where you belong: in control of our politics. Each and every dollar that you donate through ActBlue tells Democrats that they can rely on citizens--not corporations--to fund their campaigns. 160 million ActBlue dollars later, Democrats have gotten the message:
Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL):
When people give me $25 or $50… on ActBlue all they're asking for in return is good government, and that's not too much to ask.
When you give, we listen. Thanks to ActBlue, you don't need a lot of money to make a difference; all you need is a computer.
From all of us at ActBlue, thanks.
