okay, americans and folks interested in/invested in american politics, today is a day for celebrating what america is, but it is also a day for working towards what america ought to be
some of you might have heard of the mayday pac; it’s a project geared towards reducing the influence of money in politics by creating a crowdfunded superpac.
it’s trying to raise $5 million by the end of july 4th, and it’ll use that money to support candidates invested in campaign finance reform; as of right now, it has 15 hours to raise $750 thousand more.
now, you know and i know that as things currently stand, people with major money— and corporations— have way more influence over politics in america than the average citizen. a lot of us have heard about princeton’s findings that america is now an oligarchy.
a country controlled by the rich and powerful is not a democracy.
a country controlled by the rich and powerful is not free.
a country controlled by the rich and powerful is unacceptable.
so if you have a spare buck, or if you have a spare minute, donate to the mayday pac— and spread the word as far as you can, as much as you can.
this is a day to dedicated to celebrating america’s freedom— and a day dedicated to defending it. please, if you can help out, do your best.
