November 2, 2010 made it clear that there are two forces struggling to define America's future: On one side, there are the millions of folks who believe that our leaders in Washington D.C. have a duty to preserve the American Dream, that a government "of the people, by the people, and for the people" wasn't just a pithy one-liner in some old speech.
On the other side, there's the tiny minority that could afford to funnel millions of dollars in undisclosed money into our elections. I wish I could tell you who "they" are, but in a sad bit of irony, they were able to use a Supreme Court decision regarding freedom of speech to avoid telling ordinary Americans who was speaking with that money; they won't be so shy when it comes to members of Congress.
That minority has always had a powerful voice in our politics--Washington galas, high-dollar fundraisers, access to lawmakers, you name it. At ActBlue, we've shown that ordinary Americans can speak just as loud. By the time the polls closed two weeks ago, we'd sent $27 million more to Democrats than we did in 2008, from 336,000 more donors. Day by day, dollar by dollar, we're helping you repair the democratic heart of American politics.
ActBlue can only do that with your support. By making a $15, $25 or $50 recurring contribution to ActBlue, you can ensure that we'll be here when you need us. It's a price far cheaper than a ticket to a D.C. gala, in service of a cause that's far more important. So please:
