I’m on Barack Obama’s campaign’s email list, and the following is an extract of the wording they use in their goal of getting support and money.
“We are different”, “we are the people” and with a contest where the winner joins god himself:
Our campaign is different.
Our funding comes from a movement of more than one million people giving whatever they can afford — even $5 — and Barack wants to sit down with supporters like you.
In the next week, four supporters will be selected for a different kind of fundraising dinner. And we’re reserving two of those seats for new donors like you.
If you’ve ever thought about making a donation to join our campaign, now is the time.
Make a donation of any amount between now and 11:59 pm EDT on Monday, March 31st, and you could join Barack and three other supporters for an intimate dinner for five.
Can you make a donation of $5 or more today?
Our movement is changing the way campaigns are funded. (…)
