I would like to take this moment to congratulate Sen. Barack Obama on his ability and decision to opt out of the public financing system. It goes to show that when you have enough people supporting you then anything can be accomplished. Obama is the first presidential candidate in modern day history that will run a race solely on private funding. Private funding from citizens of this country who directly support a man they believe to be [the] answer to change in Washington.
There are people who will bash him and say that he's just another politician who will do whatever, even if it means going back on his word. Barack never committed to accepting public funding, he simply agreed to sit down and discus the option with his opponent, whomever that happened to be; in this case, it's Sen. John McCain.
In my opinion it would be a crime, not to accept the funding he has fought so hard for. I, as well as 1.5 million Americans, told him, with our contributions, that we will be there for him, now and throughout his entire campaign. Based on this decision I will donate again. He is true to his word about changing the way Washington does business, so I implore everyone to donate today. Even if it's just $5, it will send another strong message to Barack and the nation… We support this decision!
Time to win the Whitehouse!!!
