A Note to Our Readers After the
November 2, 2004 Election
In the aftermath of the 2004 election, we at The
Crisis Papers might have given up and hibernated in a cave for four
years, hoping that, by then, the worst of the Bush storms would have
blown over. But we dread to imagine what we might find after
Bush, Inc., had their uncontested way with our republic during those
So we intend to stay in the fight. The Crisis Papers exists to tell
the truth, to focus attention on what the captive mainstream media
strives to keep hidden.
That means links to important articles, our new essays and blogs,
Letters to the Editors from readers like you, The Dissenting Internet
list, our Activists' Page, and on and on. In the aftermath of Election
Day 2004, we need opposition websites like The Crisis Papers (and
BuzzFlash, Smirking Chimp, Truthout, Democratic Underground and the
many others) to keep the voice of dissent alive and to build and
maintain a momentum for change.
But we progressive websites need money in order to pay our back bills,
to keep going -- and, potentially, to grow.
We realize that, like us, you donated money to your favorite
candidates in the November 2004 election. Now we're asking you to turn
your attention to the online sources of information and donate there
to make sure that the fires of opposition are built strongly enough to
keep their lights illuminating the way. You can be confident that the
mainstream media will not do it.
Please send a check in whatever amount you can afford (our average
donation is $50) to The Crisis Papers, 197 Bonview St., Box C, San
Francisco, CA. 94110.
We promise to put that money to good use in continuing to inform,
agitate, propose -- and, most importantly these days, to oppose. We
will be eternally grateful for your support.
