It is that season again and Politics Done Right is hitting the road again. We are heading to Netroots Nation in Philly where we will be interacting with the largest aggregation of Progressive Bloggers, Writers, Hosts, & Politicians. For the third year in a row Politics Done Right will appear on Radio Row at the event next to the likes of The Young Turks, The Majority Report, Free Speech TV, Netroots Radio, and a few others. It is a coveted spot for Independent Media.

We must improve our quality and professionalism. Over a couple of years of working with the new technologies and services, I've learned how to connect disjointed hardware, software, and services into an inexpensive system that rivals studios that spend hundreds of thousands of dollars in equipment and personnel. I intend to create a template to encourage hundreds of independent Progressives to do the same. We cannot match the financial prowess of the mainstream media. But given our numbers, we can have a significant effect to right our politics.

We have all the mixers, lighting, wireless & wired mics, green screening, and networking equipment. But our video/editing/broadcasting computer is stressed, slow, and underperforming. The laptop that we must travel with to broadcast remotely has not kept up in performance with our Wirecast broadcasting software. And our 7-year-old HD camera for remote interviews is finally dead.

Here are our immediate hardware requirements to keep Politics Done Right moving forward and economically.


* Asus Zen ZN242GD Touch Desktop (1TB/i7/32GB) $1,999.00
* AiTechny Ultra HD 4K Camcorder $245.00
* Logitech - 4K Pro Webcam $199.00
* Monoprice 54 Liter Weatherproof/Shockproof Hard Case with Wheels 255.00
* Microsoft Surface 2 Laptop w/insurance (512/i7/16GB) - $2,299.00
* Warranties & CC charges $500

With your permission, all donors will be recognized on our various platforms as the people who make Progressive independent media and Politics Done Right in particular, possible.

I know that 24 Presidential candidates and many congressional and senatorial candidates are taking much of your political contributions. Independent Progressive media (e.g., Free Speech TV, Think Progress, Op-Ed News, Politics Done Right, etc.) have become the victims as they are starved of support. The thing is we just require a fraction of the cost to be your watchdog and to cut through candidate, Right Wing, and Mainstream Media spin. Please help us do our job by investing in this nonending project. You follow our work and know the sacrifices made for this good cause. Last year I did over 50 interviews in three days at Netroots Nation. Please contribute now!

"Thank you so kindly. Yes! I am working with a young woman in Panama right now. We will be bringing a Spanish version of Politics Done Right once a week. We are currently working on the format and getting her green screen studio set up in Panama. "
