A question on this Presidents Day: Should we attempt another moneybomb day?
We know that it is unusual for Democrats to plan ahead. We thought we would ask the question and let our readers and commenters decide the issue.
Here is what we propose:
Let’s have another moneybomb fundraising day for Hillary on Monday, February 25, 2008. Our first moneybomb day was on February 12, 2008.
Monday, February 25, 2008 is the day the Rezko trial was supposed to begin (now the Rezko trial begins on March 3, 2008).
Monday, February 25, 2008 is exactly one week away. This will give us plenty of time to organize the moneybomb to maximum effect.
On Monday, February 25, 2008 we would ask Hillary supporters to make a donation to Hillary for President along with 44 cents to let Hillary know the real grassroots of the party and the country are with her.
We will ask for minimum contributions to Hillary of $10.44. Those who want to send a message of appreciation to Bill Clinton could donate $42.44. Of course bigger contributions, more money donated, the better.
Money will be needed greatly on February 25, 2008 as it will be a few days before the March 4, 2008 primaries in Texas and Ohio. Donations received on February 25 will be sufficiently timely to assist in the efforts in Texas and Ohio.
At this point in the campaign, what helps the most is not theories or strategies or worries or even more words. What helps the most now is to supply the campaign with volunteers and financing to carry the message forward. Many of you are already helping with phone calls and volunteers are traveling to or living in states about to decide the fate of the world.
So the question on this Presidents Day is should we proceed with a moneybomb on February 25, 2008? We will go ahead with a moneybomb only if we can all publicize it far and wide.
To this purpose we have created an email account MoneyBomb@HillaryIs44.org – those who wish to help get the word out – please contact us at that email address. Let us know which websites you will communicate with, which Facebook or Myspace lists you will post to and how frequently. Send ideas on how to get the word out and how else we can help raise funds online for Hillary. Do not send in complex ideas or brilliant ideas – for someone else to do. Own your idea and get it done.
We await your answers in the comments and your assistance by email.
On this Presidents Day, let’s help add a colorful Hillary picture to the ones below.
