I would like to draw attention to Mike McCabe of Wisconsin. Founder of Blue Jean Nation and author of Blue Jeans in High Places, The Coming Makeover of American Politics. He helped start the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign in 1995. This government watchdog group "follows the money" in Wisconsin politics. This year he announced his Campaign for Wisconsin Governor because he saw no other candidates ready to directly undermine the "legal bribery" system of modern campaign finance structures. He is undermining that system at its heart. He will not accept any single campaign donation greater than $200 and no total donations from a single person of greater than $1000. People Powered and Crowd Funded, his campaign is off to a good start and could be recognized for what it stands for: an alternative to politics as usual, an alternative to voting for the lesser of two evils, an alternative to governance that works for a few and not for all, a believer in governance of the people, by the people and for the people.
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.
