Dude, is your hair on fire???! “We came up a little short” “I just got the numbers from Sara and they don’t look good” “The deadline is midnight tonight” “Can you chip in to make sure we beat Trump?” If your email inbox looks like mine, you spend what feels like hours a day deleting fundraising emails from candidates and […]Read more ›
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 […]Read more ›
In times like these, it’s… Screw it. There have never been “times like these” in American history.

Your issue may be affordable health care. Or making sure […]Read more ›

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 […]Read more ›
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 […]Read more ›
