Today's the second day of our annual webathon, during which we ask our readers to give tax-deductible contributions to Reason Foundation, the 501(c)3 nonprofit that publishes Reason.com, Reason TV, and Reason magazine.
Your contributions are absolutely crucial to our ability to be your voice for "Free Minds and Free Markets" in public debates over politics, culture, and ideas.
Your contributions allow us to cover events such as this summer's Republican and Democratic National Conventions and produce videos such as the classic one above.
In "How Pro-Choice are Democrats?," Zach Weissmueller (with mic above) and Paul Detrick tossed a libertarian perspective into an event that was generally hostile to the idea of individual autonomy outside the narrow issue of abortion. Hilarity—and ideological clarity—ensues.
This is the sort of story that only Reason is going to bring you. No other media outfit will—and no other free-market-loving, pro-drug-legalization, anti-overseas-and-domestic-war, pro-freedom organization will either. Since the founding of the magazine in 1968, Reason has functioned as a uniquely journalistic platform for libertarian ideas. We pushed into cyberspace early (Reason.com was among the first websites hosted by a politics-and-culture magazine) and since 2007, we've been turning videos that are by turns exhilirating and infuriating.
Nobody can bring you the mix of news, commentary, and analysis that Reason can.
So please donate and help us do even more for limited government and unlimited freedom in 2013. Give what you can (and see your name in the scroll bar at the top of the site) but if you can give $100, we'll send you a classic black Reason T and a free subscription. For $250, you'll get that, plus a Reason bag and an extra sub for a friend. At $666 (yes, we know), you'll get all that plus a chance to ask Matt Welch and me a question during our next "Ask a Libertarian" vid series. $1,000 gets your a private lunch in D.C. with a Reason editor.
