Trace summarizes what we learned from Mr. Dalla:
This is called “caging.” When opened 'll get listed as a campaign donor in the RNC database. It's FEC law. They'll process my check— for sure. So for one penny, I'm officially a Trump donor (no pain no gain) and they'll blow money for an eternity trying to get me to donate.
Every Republican candidate who buys the “Trump donor list” will waste time on me while my modest investment-donation will cost them far more than they will ever receive. It’s a simple but effective means of protest. Death by a thousand paper cuts.
Now imagine thousands of Americans doing the same thing. Sending donations of just $0.01 to put a drag on the RNC. Donor lists are worth a fortune and they get sold over and over again so Republicans will effectively be spending cash on wasted solicitations ad nauseum.
I know this isn't the most environmentally friendly means protest and that sucks. On the sunny side gumming up the system is good for morale plus people love getting mail. It's just that $.01 checks are real pain in the ass.
