The Democracy of Money

Any of you getting tired of the endless fund raising solicitations from all political stripes? Here is my recent response to Morgan Freeman, allegedly raising funds for the Democratic Senate.

Dear Mr. Freeman,

I too am proud that we have as our new president an intelligent man of color, willing to listen and not afraid to make changes.

I am also weary of how much America’s democracy is dependent on money. We need to raise money before election and after election and all the time in between. When do we not need money but let principles of right and wrong guide our government to do the right thing in the interest of all Americans?

I am frankly completely turned off by the incessant solicitations from political organizations of every ilk.
