You're half right.

It is a mess – but there's hope.

Sure, the War Party is louder and more powerful than ever. And yes, government agents are slithering through your emails – because it's "legal." It's undeniable that anyone who stands up to this crap is immediately targeted, smeared, and – like this very web site – deemed a proper subject for "investigation" by "law enforcement."

Depressing, isn't it?

But there's hope. After years of putting up with the warmongers and letting foreign lobbyists determine US foreign policy, the American people stood up and said NO to another war in the Middle East. A mass movement against the Surveillance State that transcend "left" and "right" is taking shape. And that's just the beginning ….

Or will it be the end? The problem is that the Bad Guys have their institutions, and they are very well funded. We, on the other hand – not so much.

One of the few institutions we have is since 1998, we've been debunking the War Party's lies and warning that perpetual war would mean the end of our republic. We've endured – but now we're facing our greatest challenge ever,

We must raise $80,000 in the next few weeks – because our very survival depends on it. We don't have any power-mad billionaires funding this site. Big corporations and Hollywood never gave us a dime. We depend on the small contributions of our many readers all over the world who believe that a more peaceful world is possible – if only we work for it.

Help us maintain the one enduring institution of today's antiwar movement – make your tax-deductible contribution today.
