Laziness  
I am highly interested in the political process and what many politicians have to say about what I consider the issues. However, I am lazy. I don't go out of my way to find out about candidates at the very beginning of the campaign. Many times I haven't done all the research I wanted to do by the time the election comes around. I sign many petitions - actually, I sign nearly all petitions for people to get their names on the ballot. Not because I believe in them or their views, but I believe that each person who wants to make a concerted effort for government should have that opportunity. A number (I think last time it was 10,000?) of signers should not be the single criteria.

I don't contribute often. I contributed to a campaign earlier this year. It wasn't much. Less than $2, because that was what I had in my pocket. But campaign contributions are often a spur of the moment thing for me. It has to tie into my world view in some fashion.

So, today it happened. A plea for campaign funds that was witty and amusing - not just a whiny or desperate sounding plea for money. So, I contributed. And I am going to remain amused all day long. ^_^;

If you want to know who or why or huh, just ask - I don't care.

I am on the email list for the Dean campaign. So, the email last night was for "Bush scares me. Vote Dean for President."

I found this too amusing (and it was Halloween themed to boot) to not contribute.

Most of the emails I have received are simply asking for money without actually addressing a specific issue at the time of money request, so it is hard to see where the money is going. Without information or humor or something that makes it interesting, I am just not likely to donate. *shrug*
