An impressive roster of hard-hitting columnists would be more than enough to make Townhall indispensable, but the editors also work to make a real difference by inspiring people to action. You can follow discussions in up-to-the-minute fashion by going to the “C-Log” -- the conservative Web log. You can click on “Top Action Items” for recommendations, which range from writing to our troops during Thanksgiving Week to calling Congress to urge lawmakers to confirm Judge Sam Alito to the U.S. Supreme Court. There’s also “TownSquare,” designed to help you network with other conservatives in your area so that you can influence the public debate on local issues in a meaningful way.
Some readers, of course, are very familiar with these features, while others sign on simply to read a particular column or two. There’s nothing wrong with that, but I wouldn’t want you to think that’s all Townhall has to offer. If you haven’t taken the time to really explore the site before, I hope you do so soon and see
why Townhall is so effective and popular.
Let me suggest one other thing: Please consider making a donation to Townhall’s Fall Pledge Drive. Yes, as I mentioned before, Townhall charges you nothing. But that doesn’t mean it costs nothing to operate. Advertising helps, but so do donations from grateful readers. Large sums, small sums and in-between sums are gladly accepted. They all add up -- and they all help make the Townhall experience possible.
So far, the editors are about halfway to their goal of raising $250,000. So how about taking a minute to pledge something right now? That way, when Townhall is around years from now, bigger than ever and bringing the conservative viewpoint to countless future leaders, you can smile and think to yourself: “I helped make it possible.”
