This is how Democrats could win the future — pretty cheaply

Michigan can be the model for turning purple and then red states back into functioning democracies. Your support of Eclectablog can help. Rep. Fred Upton is on the run. In 2017, he single-handedly kept Obamacare repeal alive with the “Upton Amendment” that made House Republicans more comfortable with gutting protections for Americans with pre-exisiting conditions. In 2019, he’s playing up […]

The Democratic Blue Wave, brought to you by activists like YOU!

The Democratic Blue Wave, brought to you by activists like YOU!

There is a lot of talk about the inevitable, impending Democratic Blue Wave coming to America this November. I have news for you, it’s not going to happen. It’s not going to happen, that is, unless everyone — not just long-time Democratic Party volunteers and not just political newcomers like Indivisible groups and other members of the #Resistance — links […]

Do you have $10 help Eclectablog keep going another 10 years?

If you can, please give $10 to help us keep exposing the poison of big money special interests for another decade When Chris Savage started blogging as Eclectablog a decade ago, Donald Trump hadn’t even filed his fourth bankruptcy yet. Chris wasn’t even sure he just wanted to blog about politics exclusively, hence “Eclectablog.” Fate had other plans. Sorry, you […]

10 years ago today, Eclectablog was born.

10 years ago today, Eclectablog was born.

On July 8, 2008, I posted my first post under the name “Eclectablog”. It was a brief post, directing folks to my wife Anne’s panoramic images of the Rothbury music festival. I had already been blogging for four years under various other names at other sites but, when I jumped to Blogger in 2008, the name “Eclectablog” was born. In […]

Announcing our newest Eclectablogger, Ammara Ansari!

Announcing our newest Eclectablogger, Ammara Ansari!

I’m constantly on the lookout for new writers for Eclectablog and my eye is always on writers who bring a different perspective than we already have. We have three white men and two white women writing for us so we have those demographics pretty much nailed down and it’s important to me that we are a diverse group. Today I […]

Don’t think the GOP can lose the popular vote by 10% and keep the House? That’s what happened in Virginia.

5 reasons it’s going to be much harder to win the House than you can imagine How would you act if you knew this could be the free last election you could ever vote in? If you think that question reeks of ridiculous paranoia, think about what happened this week. Trump held his first state dinner as president and did […]

BREAKING: Diverticulitis almost takes down Eclectablog

If you can’t imagine progressive politics without Chris Savage and Eclectablog, we need your support It was the worst Twitter direct message I’ve ever gotten — even worse than the one that convinced me Trump had won Florida. “I have been sick for a few days and this morning I went to the dr with severe abdominal pain,” @Eclectablog AKA […]

When you’re fighting to make the world a better place, it’s good to know you’re not alone

When I woke up Saturday morning, it was Day Six of our 4th Quarter fundraiser here at Eclectablog and we hadn’t received a single donation. It was pretty demoralizing. We’ve had slow weeks in the past but nothing quite this slow. I generally hope to get enough in donations each quarter to pay for at least two months. Our annual […]

Trump is failing, but we aren’t winning yet

Trump is failing, but we aren’t winning yet

Magnify your resistance by supporting grassroots resistance like Eclectablog We all wake up the same way, dreading Trump’s morning ego ablutions on Twitter. Then as the coffee, sunlight or some other controlled substance kicks in we begin to wonder what he’s distracting us from today. Is it his rank looting of taxpayers through the tax code? His abandonment of millions […]
