I noted that Rob Kall is attempting to meet his budget in order to keep Op-Ed News available to an audience that grows on a daily basis. Personally, I’m honored to be able to write and be published next to the true heavyweights that are foremost representative of the movement to take back America; I’m speaking of Timothy Gatto, David Swanson, Dave Lindorff, Michael Collins, and the many others who have become synonymous with the peace movement and are attempting to alert America of the daily dangers we face as a nation.
As a writer that exists on $849.00 a month, I know what it feels like when the phone bill comes due, or my site and domain fees are almost due to be paid. Back when gas and food wasn’t so high, and before I knew of Op-Ed News, I contributed regularly to at least three progressive sites, pleased they considered me worthy to post on their sites. However, times have become tougher, for all of us, and that’s one reason the GOP is continually kicking our collective asses - they have the money and we don’t.
To those that read the varied articles on Op-Ed News, and especially those authors that are just beginning, think of the loss we would suffer if Op-Ed News was no longer here; where else can you write and be accepted for publication on a site that receives millions of hits, and we also have the pleasure to be published alongside some of those that have become legendary in the fight for our constitutional rights! For the unknown or little-known writer, Op-Ed News presents a golden opportunity for you to become well-known, and your opinion, whereas it might have been buried away in an unknown or low-traffic Blog or political forum, is read by thousands simply because this site exists as it does.
For those that enjoy the diversity of the material published on Op-Ed News, and also for the many writers that post here, especially those of us who are virtually unknown, it’s important that we support what is becoming one the best news aggregators on the Internet. If it’s only $5.00, all of the little donations add-up, and if it’s more, than you have certainly provided a better service to the country rather than contributing to a party that will ignore the American people after they are elected, as we continue to witness even today. I’m not one to talk, but my donation will be there when my Social Security comes in. I believe we have to support the sites that are really spreading the word and helping to awaken those who still remain asleep, and it’s sites like Op-Ed News that are effectively reaching more and more people everyday.
Even if it’s just a few dollars, there are hundreds and thousands of us that visit this site on a daily basis, and I urge all of you to please help and do something that will further help to awaken the rest of America.
