WHY I AM ASKING FOR YOUR SUPPORT AT PATREON?

Your support of the program is invaluable. Producing the Thom Hartmann Program is a labor of love for the team, but doesn't come without cost. We supply the program to non-profit, community and volunteer radio and cable stations across the US. However, this isn't cost-free and being a supporter through Patreon means you can help us to meet some of the bills, to allow us to continue free supply to the non-profit sector.

As a way of saying thank you, we would like to give you something back for your support at various levels. Every weekday, the live Thom Hartmann Program three hour program is recorded exclusively for Patreon supporters. Unedited, the full three-hour video will be right here on the Patreon page, within a couple of hours of the end of the live program. And we're also providing extra videos exclusive to sponsors.

American Exceptionalism - Right vs. Left

There are two Americas and two versions of American exceptionalism.

The right-wing version is that that a strong military makes America “exceptional.” That we don’t take any crap from anyone is what makes America great. That’s why they liked President Bush. It doesn’t matter that the two wars cost America its standing in world affairs and some three trillion dollars. We blew up a lot of people and they won’t mess with us again, or so they believe. Or if they do, we’ll blow up a bunch more and it will make us feel good doing it.

My Interview With Paul Street.

On my weekly radio show, I interviewed Paul Street. If you are not familiar with him, Paul Street was the Vice President of the Chicago Urban League. He also is a historian, author and activist, who knew Obama from his days in Chicago. Paul has been warning us about Obama for years. Until Obama's tax deal with the Republicans, I never believed him, but now I am convinced Paul Street is right about Obama. Here is my interview with Paul Street last Monday. Please leave me feedback and do whatever you can to support my show.
