IPR fundraiser

Yes, that time has come dear readers. Over the past year, this blog has grown into the number one resource on the Internet for third party and independent candidate news. It has also become a hub for third party activists and independently minded voters.

We have generated some 3300+ blog posts and 50,000 comments under 2000 different tags. We’ve also logged 679,000+ unique visitors and just under 2,000,000 page views. We have been quoted by some of the largest blogs on the Internet as well as mainstream newspapers. Some of the world’s most renown experts on ballot access and third party history post or comment here, and leading activists in all parties have made this website a forum for their outreach.

The time has come for the Independent Political Report to grow further. In order to do this, bills must be paid, and bloggers must be hired–we have gone as far as we can go by simply operating on little to no budget. Neither myself, nor the editor before me, have ever asked anything for our hard work–but IPR can be better than it is.

Consider for yourself how much IPR is worth to you, how often you visit it, how much you enjoy the blog–and please donate that amount. While we appreciate one-time donations, we are really looking for a sustainable way to grow IPR in the future. So we are looking for “subscription” donations, which are small donations which will be made each month. $5, $10, $15–every little bit helps. Remember, the mainstream media is not going to cover third parties or independent candidacies, so we’ve got to build our own alternative media. For the cost of a fast food meal each month, you can help sustain IPR–please do.

    Me too. I’m going away for the summer, so if we could afford to get a new blogger or two that would be great!

    Some of us don’t do “credit cards” or “debit cards” or other banking instruments.

    Is there a snail mail address where we can send a money order?

    PEACE

    Steven,

    If it’s a one time money order, yea. Email me at

    thill at LSU dot EDU

    I don’t Paypal. Are there any other ways to participate? I would be happy to support this publication with a check or money order, say.

    You may contact me by e-mail if you don’t want to publish those particulars.

    I would also recommend Pecunix for those who like online gold.

    Who cares what your parents think? Earn your own money and donate it. Ignore your parents. Own yourself.

  6. Paulie

    Who cares what your parents think?

    People who rely on their parents for housing and other major support, and who would be forced to go through the equivalent of a divorce trial to not be legally under their parents’ authority.

  7. TIME FOR 3RD PARTY NOW

    I think that since Wayne Root is going as far as he is. EVERYONE should send an email to help get all the exposure he can get. He needs to get elected and third party that is close to libertarian ideas such as Boston Tea party, Constitution, should all be runing for Congress and the Senate. This is really important. Banners on cars, emails to all friends.

    ONLY YOU CAN CHANGE THE TWO PARTY SYSTEM: TIME TO BREAK THE ADDICTION.

    If a lot of people cannot do something as simple and not costly as this. Then we either have people who do not really care, except to blah blah blah. As well as lazy.

    Look at what happened in Iran. All those people got together on the election. Including when all the illegals did this in Los Angelese. Why are WE THE PEOPLE NOT DOING THIS?????

  8. Ross Levin

    In Iran the biggest third party got about 2% of the vote in the presidential election, according to the original official count.

  9. Paulie

    third party that is close to libertarian ideas such as Boston Tea party, Constitution

    The Constitution Party is not “close to libertarian.”

    Including when all the illegals did this in Los Angelese.

    No human being is “illegal.”

    The way “TIME FOR 3RD PARTY NOW” appears to be yelling at the screen makes me think it’s W.A.R. himself.

    …and well said, Paulie.

  11. TIME FOR 3RD PARTY NOW

    I thought the constitution party was a lot like the libertarian except they have a harder stance being pro-life. I don’t care for the illegals living off us. They should all go home. Unfortunetly, they are going to vote and of course it will be counted just like having an illegal in the white house who won’t show his birth certif. Oh yea. am afraid when 2010 comes around our votes will be just like what happened in Iran.

    I like Wayne Root initials. W.A.R. it’s perfect.

    I thought the constitution party was a lot like the libertarian except they have a harder stance being pro-life.

    No, there are actually far more differences on many issues.

    I don’t care for the illegals living off us.

    No human being is illegal, and immigrants – both documented and undocumented – raise our standard of living.

    They should all go home.

    Home is wherever you live at the present time, not which regime gang’s turf you were born in.

    illegal in the white house who won’t show his birth certif.

    That’s just ludicrous. The CP types make themselves look silly with this nonsense.

    W.A.R. it’s perfect.

    Can we find someone whose initials are P.E.A.C.E.?

  13. TIRED OF PAULIE

    Paulie actually you might live in a glass house.

    First, there are such things as illegal aliens. They are people who are here ILLEGALLY, i.e. they are violating the law. If you don’t believe in law, you are by definition an anarchist. If you just want to look the other way regarding some laws, you believe in corruption.

    Second, home is not where you are now. Otherwise, how about we all go to your house and enjoy free room and board? You can handle paying for it all, and we will go to work, get paid, then mail the checks somewhere “not-home”, i.e. where we really DO live. After all, you benefit from that, don’t you? You get to feel good that you are helping us support ourselves.

    Third, having enforcement of the legal conditions for eligibility is not nonsense; it is law enforcement. To distinguish the two, I suggest you visit your nearest police station, violate one of those foolish nonsense laws you have no respect for, and then see what happens to you. If laws are good enough for the average citizen to obey, they are good enough for Lord Obama.

    Finally, any idiot who chooses a President based on what his/her initials happen to spell should forfeit their right to vote based on mental incompetence. How about voting for honesty, integrity, the dedication to the principles on which our country was founded and became successful, i.e. the Constitution?

    They are people who are here ILLEGALLY, i.e. they are violating the law.

    Illegitimate “laws” are null and void, and this is one.

    If you don’t believe in law, you are by definition an anarchist.

    As a matter of fact, yes, I am an anarchist. But there are also many non-anarchists who believe that unjust laws should be disobeyed. Also, anarchists are not against law, we are for polycentric (rather than monopoly) law.

    If you just want to look the other way regarding some laws, you believe in corruption.

    I don’t want to look the other way, I want to actively resist and change such laws as are wrong (more properly termed edicts rather than laws)

    Second, home is not where you are now. Otherwise, how about we all go to your house and enjoy free room and board?

    Bad analogy, since the regime gang is not the “owner” of this country; it is not “their home.” A more proper analogy is a self-appointed neighborhood preservation society which tells YOU that you may NOT invite people they don’t like to YOUR house.

    You can handle paying for it all, and we will go to work, get paid, then mail the checks somewhere “not-home”, i.e. where we really DO live. After all, you benefit from that, don’t you? You get to feel good that you are helping us support ourselves.

    This is a bunch of propaganda, nonsense. Immigrants work more and harder than non-immigrants – undocumented workers, even more so.

    Third, having enforcement of the legal conditions for eligibility is not nonsense

    No, what’s nonsense is the bullshit about Obama being born in a foreign country. Totally ridiculous.

    Finally, any idiot who chooses a President based on what his/her initials

    Huh? Who does that?

    How about voting for honesty, integrity, the dedication to the principles on which our country was founded and became successful, i.e. the Constitution?

    …Which does not authorize immigration licensing, btw.
