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.

Here's a copy of what I just emailed my newly-elected Congressman, Tony Cardenas, of California's 29th Congressional District (North Hollywood) on May 29, 2013

Dear Congressman Cardenas: Congratulations on your recent victory. I'm glad I voted for you. In light of the outrageous amounts of private (really, corporate) money that is going into political campaigns these days, and considering the dangerous implications this has for democracy in America, I think it's imperative that we enact legislation that would have the effect of repealing the terrible U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, 558 U.S. 310 (2010). As you know, the effect of that case allowed right-wing oligarchs such as Sheldon Adelson and the Koch brothers, among many others, to effectively buy elections without fear. I would urge you to spearhead the attack on CITIZENS UNITED by sponsoring and forcefully advocating the passage of legislation that would provide for PUBLIC FINANCING ONLY for all political campaigns. The companion legislation to this would be a movement to amend the 14th Amendment of the U.S. and California Constitutions to insert the word "natural" immediately preceding every instance of the word "person." THAT would do away with the objection that corporations are "people," a pernicious doctrine that has been responsible for countless evil in our country.

No More Presidential Immunity!

Thom plus logo When Richard Nixon committed multiple Felonies, including accepting bribes in cash in the White House, Jerry Ford chose to pardon him.

When Ronald Reagan committed treason in 1980 to get elected, Attorney General Bill Barr shut down the investigation in 1992 with five pardons.
