Nichael has said that despite the fact that these sorts of e-mails make me want to put my representative under medical evaluation for risk of self-harm that they paradoxically inspire middling donors more than passive "hey give us some money" sort of e-mails

The contrast between "the democracts are baby killers who stole the election give us money to buy more guns" kinda republican bravado and the democrats' "if you don't send me $5 I may jump off the nearest bridge" messaging is surely something to behold.

somehow I ended up on an email list for a pac called BOLD DEMOCRATS that was just pure liberal nonsense that was sent straight to my inbox about 10x/ day. I tried to unsubscribe/ set it as spam but nothing worked. I ended up having to just block the entire domain or else I would keep seeing emails like “click here to donate $5 dollars so I can tell Barack Obama that you love him”

I made a thread like this around election time and I'm gonna take some from there.

Biden wrecked...(NOBODY was ready for this!) posted:

We are absolutely DEVASTATED!
 Joe Biden and Donald Trump are now TIED In Florida!! 
FLORIDA POLLING: JOE BIDEN AND DONALD TRUMP TIED
EMERGENCY FUNDRAISING GOAL: We talked to our accountants and we need to raise $50,000 by MIDNIGHT to get back on track! Rush $5 right now and we’ll 500%-MATCH it to RUIN Trump's presidency >>
500%-MATCH ACTIVE: DONATE TO DEFEAT TRUMP >>
It’s simple.
If Joe Biden loses Florida, he LOSES the Electoral College… Donald Trump will WIN. (NO!!!)
That’s why Trump and his allies have already spent over $82 MILLION to DOMINATE Florida.
So we’re RACING to raise as much as we can in these final 20 days until the election.
If Democrats step up, we can DEMOLISH Trump!!
If Democrats DON’T step up, we’ll be forced to suffer another 4 years of a Donald Trump presidency…
So, are you with us? Please chip in whatever you can (500%-MATCHED!!) by MIDNIGHT TONIGHT to DEFEAT Donald Trump >>

Trump will be shocked!! re: texas posted:

REALLY QUEER CHRISTMAS, Texas is officially within our reach. TEXAS! Election experts say that if Joe Biden wins Texas, President Trump won’t win the Electoral College and his presidency will be FINISHED. Bernie Sanders even predicted if Trump loses Texas it’ll be OVER. So now we have a once-in-a-lifetime to flip Texas BLUE and elect Progressives here and around the country. But to do that we need to raise $40,000 by TONIGHT...and we still need [16] small-dollar gifts from your state to stay on track to hit our goal, so please chip in now →
RUSH $5 TO FLIP TEXAS →
RUSH $15 TO FLIP TEXAS →
Donald Trump is getting nervous. He’s TERRIFIED of losing ruby red Texas.

No Democratic presidential candidate has won Texas since 1976!

But Joe Biden is now only ONE POINT behind Trump, so Republicans are rushing in to crush our Progressives in Texas and beyond.

SO REALLY QUEER CHRISTMAS: Tonight’s deadline has never been more critical.
REALLY QUEER CHRISTMAS, RUSH A DONATION RIGHT NOW TO ELECT PROGRESSIVES IN TEXAS AND ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO DEFEAT TRUMP:
CHIP IN $5 RIGHT NOW →CHIP IN $35 RIGHT NOW →CHIP IN $50 RIGHT NOW →CHIP IN $100 RIGHT NOW →CHIP IN $250 RIGHT NOW →Or chip in another amount  →

I’m begging you like Jedi begs at the dining room table. I’m counting on you like Jedi counts on a treat when he sits. Rush in $13 before the End of Month deadline in 24 hours to defeat Dan Crenshaw and flip Texas blue:

Dear Judakel,

This is the indisputable fact – Medicare for All would provide every single Californian quality care while saving billions of dollars every year.

That’s why my first bill in Sacramento, as your voice in the State Assembly, will be to work with our allies to re-introduce a California Medicare for All system to bring equal access to quality care to every Californian.

This will be an epic fight against the massive insurance corporations who will do everything in their power to protect their billions of dollars in profits.

So I need you by my side – will you sign our petition in support of Medicare for All in California?


The math is clear – more than one-third of all healthcare dollars go to insurance company profits and bureaucracy. We spend hundreds of billions to pay for these companies' overhead costs – and all too frequently, we are paying them to figure out ways to deny us coverage!

Every other industrialized economy in the world has a form of Medicare for All – sometimes called single-payer. In this system, you keep your current doctor, but we replace private, for-profit insurance companies with one public fund. Because we eliminate the profits and the bureaucracies built up to deny coverage – we can cover everyone at a lower cost.
This system would be more equitable by far – starting with making sure the 3.2 million Californians without any health insurance are immediately covered. Immigrants, low-income families and communities of color have the highest uninsured rates, with 2 out of 3 undocumented Californians having no quality health insurance.

That means the people who grow our food, care for our kids, keep our stores and restaurants open and the people who have suffered the most under COVID-19 all too often go without life-saving care. For that reason alone, we need to adopt Medicare for All.

Equity matters. But the economics of Medicare for All is also favorable to our families and small businesses. For many small businesses, healthcare costs are one of their most significant financial burdens. Medicare for All would remove that burden.

For families, the number one driver of bankruptcy and economic devastation is the cost of healthcare emergencies. Many of our houseless neighbors are on the streets because they suffer from untreated medical conditions or lost their homes to medical debt. Medicare for All would mean every family is covered.

Recent independent studies show that providing quality preventive care for everyone, which would be possible under a Medicare for All system, would save $3.4 billion per year. An authoritative recent study showed Medicare for All would save us $44 billion dollars in the first ten years it is implemented.

This is the time. And we must lead this cause.

Will you join us in support of Medicare for All?

Will you help protect the health and save the lives of those Californians who make our economy work but live without health insurance?

Will you help save these lives – and save billions by joining our fight for Medicare for All?

This is the moment for the change we have been waiting for. I hope you will join us.

In solidarity,

David Campos
Candidate for State Assembly

This dumb motherfucker whom I've never heard of thinks I am going to believe that the same democratic party that currently has a supermajority in California and passed universal healthcare only under a Republican governor that was sure to veto it is going to do so if he is elected. Get hosed, idiot.
