That angel you see flying overhead isn't going to hover forever. Unless you match the $30,000 they've put up, this "manna from heaven" is going to evaporate into thin air.

Look, we know you're busy, and money is tight. When war is the only thing a nation produces, there's economic consequences for sure. But we also know how important it is to keep going – if only because the worst people on earth would be delighted if it went away.

Through all the 18 years of our existence as the web site of the anti-interventionist movement in America, has had the solid support of our ever-widening community of readers. Many have been with us since the very beginning: reader loyalty is a feature as far as the typical reader is concerned. We need you to translate that loyalty into actual material support – because, frankly, this fund drive is beginning to suck, if you know what I mean. We really won't get that $30,000 unless and until our readers match it.

We really need you to come through for us this time. Our country faces an unprecedented crisis, with a full-fledge authoritarian takeover in full swing – people in power who want to turn America into a police state.

We here at live and breathe to fight this pernicious tendency, but we can't take another swing at the Surveillance State without your financial support. Please help: we need your support more than ever. Make your tax-deductible contribution to right now.
