Sure politics is a lot of theatre and some of it has been great recently, but the profoundly cynical appointment of Palin and other such joys has us in a tizzy. Keith is not happy with the VP appointment - the Democratic VP appointment that is. And of course the right wing will overlook an awful lot to be a heartbeat away from the presidency; and who can blame them? Speaking of power grabs Harper seems frightened of the future so he will go to the polls now, despite putting in set election dates. Plus, news on borders - new rules at the U.S. seem to apply to Keith and American Special Forces cross into Pakistan. Matt reports on how the IMF might not be good for your health and the growing gap in income in Atlantic Canada. It is enough to make one a political cynic.
Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
