Thank you to those who have already responded to our drive for paying subscribers. The link to pay is here. For those who haven't yet joined up, here are ten more reasons in addition to yesterday's ten:
1. The entry-level price, at $49, is about a quarter of the price of a basic New York Times subscription, and will waste less of your time.
2. It is a better use of your money than a campaign contribution to Beto O'Rourke.
3. Your editor isn't ensconced in some non-profit think tank or tenured at some tax-exempt educational institution. Paying subscribers, along with some advertising revenue, are what have made the site possible.
4. You believe in incentives.
5. You've learned something valuable in the past year by reading the site.
6. It's reassuring to know that you aren't the only one out there who looks at the world the way we do.
7. You look at the world differently than we do, but find it useful to know where someone else is coming from.
8. It's nice to have some news and opinion outlets that aren't government-funded (like NPR) or also running travel companies with trips to Iran and Saudi Arabia (like the New York Times).
9. You are looking forward to learning something valuable in the year ahead by reading the site.
10. You think there need to be non-crazy, civil, intelligent voices on the center-right in America's political and economic discussion.
If you've been procrastinating, now is the time to tackle this. It will not take long, and we can really use the help. The link is here.
