We’re back and we need some help


Many of you may have noticed intermittent updates lately. This has been due to many circumstances, not the least of which is our need to find a new editor. That process hasn’t gone as planned; we’re simply not raising enough money to hire anyone.

Some are also aware that my family is facing a very precarious birth. Our son, due to be born next month – God willing – has a severe heart defect. This has us at various doctors 4-5 days per week.

On top of all this, my involvement with building the Federalist Party has been quite time consuming as well. As the party continues to grow at a breakneck pace daily, the need to deliver more information, talk to the media, and build infrastructure is a full-time job. All of this has left The New Americana under-managed.

Starting today, I’m reaffirming our desire to build the best news aggregator on the internet. You’ll notice we bumped up the number of links to the levels they were at a month ago. There’s a reason that God gave us coffee and this time in my life is a perfect testament for it. With both major parties lurching left and the masses slowly being indoctrinated into a big-government mentality evolving into a dependency, it’s not the time to slow down. The Constitution needs patriots to step up and defend it. If they won’t do it in Washington DC, we’ll have to do it from the grassroots.

As I’ve noted in the past, I’m horrible at asking for help. That’s arguably the biggest reason we’ve fallen so short of raising the funds necessary to make this site grow. Other sites with less effort invested, lower traffic, and a lack of a mandate are able to generate contributions without a problem, so I can only conclude that my unwillingness to ask is the problem.

I’m asking now. If you believe that more Americans need to be exposed to the truths about reining in government overreach, defending freedoms, and protecting the way of life our founders envisioned for us, then please take a moment to give what you can on our GoFundMe page. I need the help and I’m not willing to allow pride to get in the way.

Those who want to help the party can contribute there as well. I don’t receive any of that money, but it will help to relieve some of the pressure by empowering growth. Changing this nation needs people, but it also requires money. That’s a sad truth of our world; great ideas and strong principles aren’t enough in a society driven by mass media and manipulative forces. We need money for the party just as badly as we need money for this site.

Words cannot express my gratitude to those who have helped so far. Again, it’s against my nature to solicit help, but I know there are caring and capable patriots out there who have the resources to apply. If our mission is one you’d like to see fulfilled, please take a moment and give what you can. Thank you.
