About

First of all, thank you to everyone reading this. Making this decision wasn't easy, but after contemplating doing this for quite some time, I felt this was the best option that would allow me to expand my site, Forward Progressives, into new ventures that I've been wanting to do for quite some time.

As someone who got in the "politics game" to make a difference, the inability to expand my site beyond just basic blogging and analysis has frustrated me for quite a while. Unfortunately, being an extremely small operation, and already dedicating 7-days a week to this career over the last several years, time is something of which I am not in great abundance. 

Which is why I created this. 

More revenue means I'll have the ability to invest more into Forward Progressives. My goal is to bring on more writers which would then allow me to expand our influence even further than it is now. With a larger staff we'd be able to produce more YouTube videos, start a podcast, and write more in-depth and investigative/research articles. I'm also wanting to finally start on a book I've been wanting to write exposing the hypocrisies of Republicans, but I just haven't had the time. 

In a world where there's so many important issues we'd like to cover, far too often we're left having to decide which ones we're okay not writing or talking about because we simply don't have the time or staff to cover them. 

Ultimately, what I feel we have at Forward Progressives is something special and I want to improve upon it.

If people feel inclined to be a part of that by becoming one of our "Patreons," that's amazing. Again, thank you, thank you.. thank you. If not, that's fine, too. I grew up dirt poor and I take care of a mother who "lives" on around $600 a month, so I understand what it's like to live literally penny to penny.

Just the support myself and my site gets from our followers is amazing and makes us realize why we make the sacrifices we do in order to keep Forward Progressives running. 

So for everyone who does decide to donate, again, thank you. I will be forever humbled at the thought that there are people out there who actually enjoy reading or hearing things I have to say or what my site produces. 

Sincerely, 

Allen Clifton

25 of 100 patrons
If I hit 100 Patreons (or more) by the end of December I'll think of something special to do. Not entirely sure what, but I'll run a poll on either my Facebook or Twitter to see what people are more interested in from a list of ideas. As always, a huge thank you to everyone who's signed up. You're all incredibly wonderful people!
