Given the events over the past two months with the ascension of Donald Trump to the presidency, I don’t need to tell you that our progressive values are under daily assault. With blue states like Michigan under total Republican domination, it goes without saying that we are all feeling the brunt of their anti-women, anti-worker, anti-public schools, anti-government attacks on the things we believe are bedrock values in America.
Every day, the writers of Eclectablog pull back the curtain on what’s happening with thoughtful analysis, guidance on how to frame these fights, and information you can use to be a fierce progressive warrior. We’ve kept the Flint Water Crisis front and center on the national stage. We’ve shown how corporatists are working overtime to siphon our tax dollars into their own bank accounts. We have elevated the situations of women, workers, educators and students, and those who want to move our country in the right direction.
We can’t do that without your help. There’s never been a more important time to support independent journalism and analysis. We want to continue to grow our group of regular contributors – all of whom are paid for their creative work – and up our game on The Sit and Spin Room with Eclectablog & LOLGOP podcast with better equipment.
If you are able to help support us financially, we would be most grateful. There are two ways to help. First, you can use the handy PayPal forms at the top of the right sidebar to make a one-time donation via Paypal in the amount of your choice or to set up a monthly donation. Second, you can send a check (which avoids Paypal taking out a percentage of your donation) to Chris Savage, P.O. Box 32, Dexter, MI 48130. Please make the check payable to “Eclectablog”.
Alternatively, consider becoming a sponsor of our upcoming annual fundraising party (and live recording of the podcast!) You can learn more about how to do that HERE. This option is available to both individuals and organizations.
Your support of Eclectablog is an important way to fight back against the real tyranny we face in America today and you’ll be supporting your values in a tangible, effective way.
Thanks for being part of our community.
