Why I Stamp:

I think money is the most corrupting influence in politics, and what slows down and halts progress. We need to make it so our vote matters more than the whims of mega rich corporate donors. Overturn Citizens United and elect people who won’t take gigantic donations, such as Justice Democrats. Everyone thinks it’s hopeless, and becomes complacent, but if we get big money out of politics we can change everything.



Relationship status:

Head over heels

Favorite Stamp(s):

For $1s and $100s: “Corporations Are Not People, Amend the Constitution”. The most specific and to the point. The speech bubble is cute too.
For the Rest: “Not to Be Used to Buy Elections” looks aesthetically pleasing and official, especially on a $5 bill.

Started Stamping Date:

July 1, 2018

Tips for Fellow Stampers:

Avoid covering the face or the circle thingies, as that looks bad and will make a machine more likely to reject the stamps.

Job / Profession / Work:

Emergency Medical Technician

What Makes Me Happy:

Music (David Bowie, The Cure, Imogen Heap, etc.), playing synths/piano, clubbing, literature (big Mishima and Dostoevsky fan), Anime (My Hero Academia, Devilman Crybaby), videogames (Silent Hill, Final Fantasy),  politics (The Young Turks, Justice Democrats), chilling with friends

She left the shelter and went on the Street then returned and gave me the five dollar bill that was stamped by /DARK. I followed instructions and will be using this money to help me get housing. I am an adult education teacher by profession and a disabled senior. I WISH ALL OF YOU THE BEST. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO AND ARE DOING TO HELP ALL VALID CAUSES. RESPECTFULLY JACQUELINE MCalvain.
