Why I no longer donate to the Democratic Party, the DNC, DCCC, DSCC, etc.

This story confirms what has become painfully obvious: the DNC (and Obama, too) not only publicly ignores and disregards Howard Dean and his immeasurable contributions, but it has dropped his 50-state strategy that worked so well in 2008. Do you think that Obama would have won in NC without it?

So I now donate to specific candidates and pursue my own personal 50-state strategy.

I'm with you, Z

My contributions now go to individuals and only individuals. I no longer have faith that the institutions that have grown up in and around the Democratic Party share my interests and commitments.
