"Something you don't have in common."

I was notified by Obama's campaign that there are 347 people in Leesburg VA (the town where I live) who have given money to his campaign. They also told me that I am not one of those people. They are trying to guilt me into sending money! The subject line of the email was "Something you don't have in common." I guess they might want to know about a few other things I don't have in common with people who give him money...

Dear Mr. Obama,

I don't like how you are bankrupting America! Stop being irresponsible with the money you take in taxes before you ask me to send you the rest of my money for your campaign.

2012 Jeremiah --

Here's something you don't have in common with 347 other supporters of this movement who tell us they live in your area.

That many of your neighbors have decided to own a piece of this campaign by making a donation of whatever they could afford. For some, that meant just $5. For others, it meant $100 or more. But each had their own personal reason for giving.

Our records show that you aren't one of the 347 people in Leesburg, VA who have stepped up for 2012. Now's your chance to change that.

Make a donation of $5 or more today to support the campaign before the critical September 30th deadline.

Here's why you should join your neighbors in supporting this campaign: We've been running the numbers, and with hundreds of thousands of individual donors across the country -- we are now well on our way to a million people.

In the 2008 campaign, it took us more than a year to reach that milestone. This time around, we could cross it as soon as October -- just six months after the launch of the campaign.

Between now and then, we have an important fundraising deadline.

Our opponents have significant operations on the ground in key battleground states, full-time candidates without day jobs, and a lot of media attention to fuel their campaigns.

President Obama has you. And when you're building a grassroots organization from the bottom up, the first person gets the next one involved. And the first 347 provide the foundation and inspiration for the next 347.

Support the campaign before the deadline, and bring us closer to one million donors -- give $5 today:

Thank you,
