ACT BLUE'S PRO OBAMA STANCE DE-LISTS THE DENVER GROUP.

We have been notified by Act Blue that because we are raising money to run ads that oppose Senator Obama's candidacy for President and no doubt that we are also quite obviously leveling criticism at the DNC for their dishonest handling of the nominating process, and, according to their letter, that we are encouraging the withholding of support for Obama in the election, we are being de-listed by Act Blue and will no longer be accepting contributions through them.

We found this censorship so outrageous, and so obviously part of everything that has infected parts of the Democratic Party this year and made those elements worth opposing, that we decided not even to bother to make our case and argue our point. We are just as happy to accept our contributions through Pay Pal and in check form by mail as we have been doing, and we will continue to do so. But we wanted to explain to our contributors why they will no longer be seeing the Act Blue button on our site and so from now on all contributions to the Denver Group should be made through Pay Pal and by check.

To any of you who would like to express your displeasure to the person at Act Blue who made the decision to de-list us because we will not tow the official Democratic Party line and because we had the audacity to reject the corrupt actions of the Democratic Party this year, you can write to Nate Thames at: nate@actblue.com

Well, as disheartening as it may seem, you must be doing a lot right to garner the attention. As HIll said... I pay no attention to the barbs and slights. I am IMPERVIOUS. It is actually a type of perverse compliment that they are spending so much time on me.

So, I say to the Denver Group. Keep it up... Great Work! You sprak for millions of us. Thanks.

Email sent to ActBlue telling them I will no longer donate to any Democrat through ActBlue. I'll try PayPal and if that does not work I'll post a check to the Denver Group today.

Just reaffirms my N.O.T. for Dems in 2008 stance.

This is gonna backfire on them.

I just notified them that PayPal works just fine for me and that I "de-listed" THEM.

A few hours ago I received an email from ActBlue for a contribution because they are all fired up after Denver. In response I unsubscibed and blocked them in my email program.

All hail to the Leader--the Dem nominee.

They never learn. Oppression is a sure way to increase and ignite opposition. This should be a year for a democratic candidate to stroll into the White House at leisure. DNC leaders and the nominee are definitely their own worst enemies.

This is unbelievable, or is it, given what we have already seen during this election season. I have written to Nate Thames and asked suggested to him that supporting a group that is standing on principle is not a difficult thing to do. These draconian efforts get more and more frightening.
