Liberate Vermont

Dear Friends of Vermont,
 
They’re back.
 
Vermonters First, the millionaire-funded Super PAC who attempted to distort Vermont’s election last fall, just sent out a mail piece attacking our legislators. The 2014 elections are 19 months away, but the attack ads have already started.

Will you chip in $5 right now to help us fight back?
 
This shadowy Super PAC is so secretive that they even refused to provide a list of the legislators they were targeting. That’s because they’re not interested in having a real conversation about policy.
 
When you have deep pockets, you can afford to do that.
 
In Vermont, good politics is about putting forth a positive vision. But a Super PAC like Vermonters First has no vision. They just want to prevent our legislature from taking Vermont forward.  And they’ll say anything to get what they want.
 
This isn’t how we should make our policy decisions here in Vermont.  Don’t allow big money to drown out sensible debate.
 
Please, will you chip in $5 right now to help us fight back?


Thank you for your support, 
Julia

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
