In the spirit of bi-partisanship, I'm recommending a subscription to The American Prospect for all the progressive thinkers on Active Rain. You can order it at a discount here ($20.00 for a year's subscription). Be certain to denote Maggie Brady as the student and if you'd be kind enough to enter her e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), we'll be notified of your commitment to progressive thought.
American Prospect describes itself as:
The viewpoint of the Prospect is that of committed, engaged progressives--realistic but committed to the idea that there is greater range for genuinely transformative policies than is often imagined, especially in Washington. We believe in an economy that provides broadly shared prosperity, and in which a foundation of economic security allows all people to make the most of their own talents and aspirations. We believe in a renewed democracy, based on transparency and civic engagement. Prospect writers and columnists have written emphatically about the need for a decisive and ambitious response to the current economic crisis, about the urgency of universal health care as well as the options for achieving it, about the revolutionary possibilities of climate change legislation as well as the political obstacles to achieving it.
Certainly, a subscrpition to American Prospect will arm you better in philosophical debate against me, a card-carrying member of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. It will also support my daughter's school.
