You know… the number one thing right wingers say about liberals that isn’t always wrong is that we don’t support our own.
It’s time we changed that…
The rest of the year I don’t ask for anything from the readership, but for a few weeks in early summer and around the holidays, I ask for a few bucks to keep us going the rest of the time. Now, unlike many professional left blogs, I’m not going to tell you I need $10,000 per month just to post my opinions online. But it’s also a mistake if you think all this is free. “Free” is what the Internet used to be, before the GOP got control and took away most of the freedom. While I don’t expect to do more than break even, these days, “breaking even costs a couple hundred dollars per month; more if I add back the podcast.
For those of you who always support this blog, thank you very much. I am more grateful than you could ever know. For those who haven’t yet, please consider doing so. If everyone who reads every post on this blog gave $10 per fundraiser, I’d have more than I would ever need for the next several years.
I have a lot of plans for this space over the next few months, including information to make it more likely to make sure Democrats win everywhere. That means details about specific candidates that you can use to make sure we win more places, and real information that cuts through the bulshit machine many are being spoon-fed on the “free” Internet. For example, this week, I will be publishing an anazlysis of the West Virginia Senate race, explaining why Joe Manchin is BY FAR the best choice. Yes, pro lefties, I said Joe Manchin is the best choice for West Virginia. And unlike you, I will prove it.
Speaking of which, I also plan to reveal my plan for guaranteeing net neutrality for all time. Even people who don’t like me very much wil LOVE this idea because it will save the online space for everyone.
Please help out with a donation. They are all appreciated very much.
In addition to the usual donate buttons, located in the right column, I have added a GoFundMe this time. I’ve found them to be safe and secure and reliable. For those who may be afraid, when you donate via any method, I only get your email address, and ask anyone; I don’t send anything more than a “thank you” email back.
Once again, I don’t get your card information or anything else; just your email, which I have no interest in selling to everyone. It’s all between us, I promise.
Please help us out. It’s really appreciated and it will hep us all win in November and beyond. I’m not as obsessed with Trump as most of the pro left; in fact, I will help you cope with his sorry ass. That’s better than stressing out constantly…
