If Republicans Are Smart They Don't Touch This

FEC: Campaigns can raise money via text message - Dave Levinthal - POLITICO.com:

If you were trying to find a way to aggravate people, this would be it. Call people who don't want you to call them on their cell phones, which costs them money, and beg for more money for your favorite politicians. Really?

Republicans, be smart and resist this evil temptation.  It will benefit you many times over to be the party who does not abuse the personal space of your constituents.

As quoted in Politico.com

The Federal Election Commission on Monday night unanimously voted to allow Americans to make political donations via text message, making Androids, iPhones and BlackBerrys the newest weapon in the battle to raise unprecedented amounts of money.

Both parties, as well as campaign finance reform advocates, say the move will allow Americans of modest means to play a greater role in a democratic process dominated this election cycle by billionaires and multimillionaires and political organizations such as super PACs that may raise and spend money without restriction.

Just a friendly, but smart suggestion.
