Perhaps the best case I’ve seen made for why it is important for you to become an FDL member stems from this recent story about the Democracy Alliance. The Democracy Alliance was started by a bunch of rich donors in 2005 to try to build a progressive movement. But they recently pulled funding for worthwhile organizations in order to focus money on the Democratic Party. We at FDL need to maintain our financial independence to continue what we do.

But all that’s happened is that another set of climate denial shills has bee exposed, so now they want to draft Revkin to help continue the shilling.
