The Importance of Giving (Politically)

Okay, I just gotta tell you something. You need to be donating to a political cause.
At the end of the month, after bills, food, gas, and typically a splurge or two (I'm still trying to figure out how to be fiscally responsible), there usually isn't a ton left over. I know I'm not alone in this phenomenon, but regardless, everyone should be giving politically; either to a Political Action Committee (PAC or Super-PAC) or a committee (Republican National Committee or Democratic National Committee), or a candidate. 

Everyone talks about how money makes the world go round, and in politics, it's the same. The party/candidate/ group with the most funds has an extreme advantage of the competitor. Money makes or breaks campaigns and it makes or breaks legislation. I know this isn't what the Founding Fathers might have hoped for, but it is the law of the land now.

But what about you? Why should you be donating politically?

You can impact a campaign or organization when they need you most. Some may argue that voting day is when they need you most, but what happens if the group or candidate doesn't get on the ballot due to lack of funds? Exactly.

It doesn't have to be a ton of money. $5, $10, $15 dollars is all it has to be if that's all you can afford. Political giving is all about the mob mentality, especially when it comes to the big donors. No one likes betting on a loser, and your monetary backing of a group, interest, candidate, shows other donors they should donate too.

Giving politically is different than giving to a local charity, in the fact that you benefit. Giving to a party, interest, PAC whatever that you believe in can benefit your live, work or family in the future. If the environment is important, donate to a candidate who advocates for the environment or a politically active environmental group. Do you think taxes are too damn high? Give to a candidate with a track record of tax cuts. When you give to campaigns or groups, you are controlling democracy

Whether you are giving locally, state-wide, or nationally, just plan on giving; the earlier the better!
