I'm writing to tell you about a recent donation I made to President Obama’s 2012 campaign by going to this cite: http://www.barackobama.com/
It was $14. That is an amount I have given before and one I am likely to donate again.
I am retired; my wife is still working; my sons are grown and living away from home, but we still help them financially when and where we can. I say this not in bitterness, but simply to make it clear that we are not swimming in discretionary income. It takes some genuine commitment to make a donation to a political campaign when the amount one can give is absolutely small, but relatively significant in the context of one’s own situation.
But this message is not really about my family and me. It is about the 2012 election. First, it is about the presidential election and second it is about the Senate and House elections. More than any elections held in at least a decade, the 2012 elections truly matter.
