I can't believe that you're really going to compare the political donations of the Koch brothers, (2 people) to those of ActBlue, (an online
political fundraising tool where "everyone" is invited to participate).
Who We Are
ActBlue is an online toolset that makes it easy for donors to connect with the candidates and causes they support.
At ActBlue, our mission is to democratize power by putting powerful fundraising tools in the hands of grassroots donors across the United States.
How We Do It
Our fundraising tools allow everyone to have a powerful voice in the country's future. By giving through ActBlue, our donors monetize their passion
and empower both themselves and the candidate or cause they support.
The ActBlue model encourages and rewards participation in the fundraising process. Grassroots donors and fundraisers can track their impact online and
in real time, and our clients build a network of invested supporters they'd be hard-pressed to reach otherwise.
ActBlue's tools have been tested during some of the major fundraising moments of the last nine years, and time and time again they've measured up.
Today, their reliability and capacity is second to none and available to all. We're committed to giving our hundreds of thousands of users new and
better ways to make their voice heard.
ActBlue only accepts donations from individuals, and we direct the money as they specify. We disclose every donation made through ActBlue to the
relevant bodies, working to keep the lines of accountability between donors and recipients open.
Furthermore, there seems to be a pretty good explanation for the fact that ActBlue donations primarily go to democrats. [B] IT'S BECAUSE THAT'S
WHERE THE DONORS DIRECTED THEM TO GO! [/B]
In other words, we have an internet site where anyone can personally direct their political donations to anyone and/or any cause that they choose and
as it turns out, the vast majority of them chose to give to democrats and you want to compare that collective to the personal donations of two people.
I'm beginning to believe that when it comes to politics, there isn't a single "truth" out there, that you're not overwhelmingly eager to twist
into pure propaganda.
I nominate you Xuenchen for the official position of "Tokyo Rose" of ATS. Do I hear a second?
