I gave $100. Who's next? Go here.

The GOP plans to spend anywhere up to $10,000,000 on this campaign.

You want a third-party presence in the Senate? A progressive? Here's your guy. Those who live near should volunteer in 2005/6. Go here to do so.

Don't you think soliciting campaign contributions and quoting the GOP $$$$ tally provide the wrong frame for the problem?

Working for Bernie's campaign is another thing, but throwing dollars at this problem (or towards this solution?), and getting others to do the same, is the kind of action that perpetuates many of the problems we're facing. The most fundamental of these problems is campaign finance reform.

Bernie Sanders raises his money from individual contributors, is a democratic socialist, is unaffiliated with any party, and has the exact positions on issues I at least agree with. So, soliciting money from individuals to go up against a GOP war chest, including $5m pledged by the rich dude they got to run against Sanders, seems like a good idea to me.
