REAL TALK: Without progressive activism, there isn’t going to be any “blue wave”


There is a LOT of talk about the “blue wave” that’s coming in November this year when Democrats (we are told) are going to trounce Republicans all across America. Here’s some real talk: there isn’t going to be any “blue wave”. That is, there won’t be unless progressives get active and stay active between now and then. As we’ve been saying on the podcast, we need to run like we are 10 points down because there is a good chance that we will be by the time Election Day rolls around. We saw that in 2016 and now we’re dealing with the catastrophic results every single day.

Here at Eclectablog we pride ourselves on keeping you informed about the issues, giving you the information you need to be an effective progressive activist.

However, in order to do that, we need the support of our readers to ensure that we can keep delivering the high quality content you have come to rely on. That’s why we come to you a few times a year to ask you to make a financial contribution to keep us going.

As I wrote yesterday, our annual fundraiser party is postponed this year due to my medical issues so this particular fundraiser is more crucial than usual.

Please consider making a contribution and joining the growing community of supporters here at Eclectablog. One really terrific way to support us is to make a recurring monthly donation. You can choose your monthly giving level using this form:

There are two other ways to help, as well. First, you can use the handy PayPal form at the top of the right sidebar to make a one-time donation via Paypal in the amount of your choice. 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”.

If you are able to help support us financially, we would be most grateful. As Mitchell Robsinson put it, every dollar and voice counts. Thank you for your support.

P.S. Google, Twitter, and Facebook have changed their algorithms significantly in the past year meaning that fewer people are seeing our content in Google searches and on the various social media platforms. You can help us out by sharing our content far and wide and it won’t cost you a thing.
