Act Blue is the clearinghouse for online donations to the Democratic Party (I know, I know, but this is a concrete opportunity for once!). This link is for the recall efforts in Wisconsin, a key battleground in the fight against the shock doctrine neoliberal assault, the Koch brothers, ALEC, "fiscal emergency" state-of-exception bills, etc. Their pitch follows:
We need wins in three of the six recall elections on August 9. Polling currently shows us crushing Republican Dan Kapanke and narrowly ahead of Republicans Randy Hopper and Luther Olsen.
In the two districts where Democrats hold narrow leads, we are going to run Google Blast ads during the final 120 hours of the election. Every single person who goes online in those districts will see our ads an average of 20 times. Further, these ads will drown out any online ads run by Republicans and their corporate masters.
We need $13,596 per district to pull this off. Please, contribute using this link!
