Being part of a progressive community has never been more important than it is right now, right here

Being part of a progressive community has never been more important than it is right now, right here

This isn’t just a website. This is a community. Today is the last day of our 2nd Quarter fundraiser for 2019 here at Eclectablog. We try not to do this too often. The fact is, none of here enjoys asking you to send us money. In truth, I am probably the worst fundraiser in progressive politics. But, I am so […]

HEY, AMERICA! Don’t just sit there! DO something!

HEY, AMERICA! Don’t just sit there! DO something!

In times like these, it’s… Screw it. There have never been “times like these” in American history. Yes, we’ve had presidents who were incompetent or narcissistic and who surrounded themselves with like-minded, power-hungry sycophants. And we’ve had Congresses that have abdicated their duty to hold our leadership accountable. But we have never had the sort of confluence of all of […]

This is how Democrats could win the future — pretty cheaply

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 […]

“Why don’t you just leave?” — The case for staying in the fight for Michigan

“Why don’t you just leave?” — The case for staying in the fight for Michigan

Every time the Republicans who run Michigan do some new incredibly regressive thing, I hear it from several people: “WHY DON’T YOU JUST LEAVE?” When Republicans imposed the most draconian, anti-democratic law on our state — our infamous “Emergency Manager” Law — I heard it. When Republicans passed a huge tax cut for corporations and paid for it by raising […]

We’ve Got Issues: How can you find out more about the issues you care about?

We’ve Got Issues: How can you find out more about the issues you care about?

I’ve got issues. We all do. For me, it’s all about public education. It’s what I’ve dedicated my professional life to, and I have pretty strong feelings about supporting public schools, teachers, and students, and protecting the institution of public education from attacks by persons like Michigan’s own Betsy DeVos. Your issue may be affordable health care. Or making sure […]

Michigan gave the USA Betsy DeVos. Help us atone for that and make the world a better place.

Michigan gave the USA Betsy DeVos. Help us atone for that and make the world a better place.

Michiganders tried. We REALLY did. We TRIED to warn America about Betsy DeVos. We tried to tell the country that she is the epitome of everything that is wrong about the corporatist and dominionist approach to the destruction of public education. And nobody was more outspoken about her and her horrid goals than the writers here at Eclectablog. We’ve written […]

Accountability is the foundation upon which our republic is built. Here’s one way YOU can help shore up that foundation.

Accountability is the foundation upon which our republic is built. Here’s one way YOU can help shore up that foundation.

America is in big trouble these days. It’s not just that we have a narcissistic liar “leading” the country. It’s that our elected officials are unwilling to hold Donald Trump and his band of merry grifters accountable for their un-American policies and actions. Accountability. That’s the foundation upon which our republic is built. Elected officials and other leaders must be […]

Announcing the 2018 Eclectablog Annual Fundraising Party with special guest Jordan Zakarin from Progressives Everywhere!

We normally do our fundraiser in late spring but some health issues on my end foiled that plan. Then came the midterm election. Then came the general election. So, now that the dust has settled, we are finally getting the opportunity to hold our annual fundraiser. And we NEED to! Our coffers are nearly depleted! This year we’re thrilled to […]

Help us make Michigan a new state in 2019

We can transform Michigan’s democracy in time for 2020 — and your support is needed There’s a reason that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jennifer Lawrence are focused on Michigan as the most important election of our lives nears. It’s not just because we have a historic all-women slate of statewide candidates. And It’s not just because we have a chance to […]
