It has been a while since I really thought about this, but since I am home with nothing better to do at the moment, I started thinking. How many of us donate to our political choices? When I get really fired up about a candidate, I have been known to donate. Recently, though, I can’t say that I have felt any compelling reason to donate.
I came across this site: WinRed.
Just for fun, I thought I would look across my own state and see how many BIPOC (that’s newspeak for non-white people) were running as Republicans who could have donations contributed via this website. I found quite a few, more than I thought I would, if I’m being honest. More than that, many of them are women. Women veterans.
Have you looked at ways to help your party of choice in elections, either through direct donations or by this website? If so, do you like to help people in other races or just your own locality?
I’m actually kind of excited at the idea of having more diverse people up front in the GOP’s view, particularly since many of them are women and veterans.
On the downside, I’m loath to donate via the general Committee because I feel like they regularly misuse my money and then harass me for more in two years.
What do you think? Direct donations? Huge websites? Donating to individuals in your area or doing some strategic donating on a national level? As for me, I just give money to people I like, regardless of where they are.Published in
