I don’t often suggest where people donate their hard earned money, but since I gave a modest amount to Antiwar.com’s quarterly fundraising drive, I’d like to give two reasons why now is a particularly good time for you to consider doing the same:
The time is right to re-establish the non-interventionist Right
With McCain’s loss and the thorough rejection of Bush by the American people, the conservative movement is at a crossroads. The libertarian/Old Right, anti-war prospective of Antiwar.com is great vehicle for making the case that a consistent application of conservative, constitutionalist principles means a modest, non-interventionist foreign policy.
The immediate future of the anti-war left is uncertain.
With the new Democrat regime in Washington, AntiWar.com is more critical than ever. The site does a great job mixing its Old Right/libertarian with viewpoints with other antiwar prospectives, including those in the anti-Bush left. However, with messianic fervor that surrounds Obama, I expect to see anti-war criticism from the left subdued or suppressed as outlets like The Nation and Center for American Progress fall in line. This leaves Anti-War.com as a vital reminder that peace is not a partisan issue.
