I don’t need to tell YOU that the United States of America is in big trouble right now. Our country is now “led” by a kleptocratic authoritarian who is rapidly consolidating his power to benefit himself, his kids, and his business cronies. What was happening in slow motion only a few months ago has now turned into a rapid-fire string of chaos and mayhem, all geared toward making him more powerful and harder to unseat.
Let’s not forget that Trump’s latest pick for the U.S. Supreme Court once said, “The country loses when the President’s focus is distracted by the burdens of civil litigation or criminal investigation and possible prosecution.” That should send a shiver down your collective spines.
There is a LOT of talk about a so-called “blue wave” this fall. This sort of talk makes me nervous. It makes me worry that people will, like in 2016, feel like our victory is secured and they can relax and not worry about it. That is decidedly NOT the case.
We must all double down on our actions and protests and, most importantly, our efforts to get out the vote (GOTV) for Democrats wherever they appear on the ballot. Nothing short of that will work. And it’s the primary reason we renamed our podcast “The GOTMFV Show” where, every week, LOLGOP and I do everything we can to help you turn words into votes.
But, that doesn’t come free. We have bills to pay and writers to compensate. So, several times a year we ask you to help out with a financial contribution to the blog and podcast.
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. Over the past year or two, Google, Twitter, and Facebook have changed their algorithms significantly 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.
