Recently a group of very rich people, calling themselves “Patriotic Millionaires”, have published a letter to President Obama asking to have their taxes increased. http://www.fiscalstrength.com/ The right wing crazies have jumped all over this saying the millionaires are not serious because they could simply donate to the IRS.

OK, this got me to thinking. How does a person go about donating to the government? It is difficult to find information on the Internet to answer this question. However, I eventually found this site http://www.treasurydirect.gov/govt/reports/pd/gift/gift.htm

I would like to see a well publicized and organized movement of, in-your-face-against-the-anti-american-right-wing-crazy-tea-party, ordinary people, REAL PATRIOTS, collectively donating small amounts of money to the US treasury to pay down the public debt. Does anyone know how to go about getting such a movement going?
