Yup, ActBlue just outraised the “Big D” Democratic Party!

In the bad old days you made a donation to the “Big D” Democratic Party and then they allocated it to their favored candidates, party units, whatever…. It was a system made for abuse, and top down control of the $$$ could force loyalty to party leaders and squelch progressive dissidents. At worst it enabled classical “machine” politics.

With ActBlue you, not the party bosses, pick the candidates and party units you want to support. Thanks to ActBlue’s low overhead your donation has maximum effectiveness. Just as Craig’s List obsoleted classified ads and Google revolutionized research, ActBlue has revolutionized campaign fundraising.

“Big D” Dinosaur Democratic Party, adapt or go extinct…
