Things are beginning to look up a little!so close pic

As I type this – and thanks to an overnight boost in donations – we are within about 25 percent of “break even” for the month. About a dozen “EPautos” stickers are on their way to their new homes.

UPDATE: As of early Saturday morning, we’re only about 23 percent away from break even! If just a few more people help out during the next few days, we’ll make it!

I’m feeling like the guy whose car is stuck in the mud, who’s been rocking it back and forth… and can feel it starting to get some traction.

Maybe we can make this work!

Again, just a little – from a lot of people – is all it will take. Your $5 or $10 can ensure the ongoing viability of EPautos. Plus, you’ll get something tangible in your hand, too.

If you value independent media, please support independent media. We depend on you to keep the wheels turning!

Our donate button is here.

 If you prefer to avoid PayPal, our mailing address is:

EPautos

Copper Hill, VA 24079clover2

PS: The new EPautos stickers are here! They’re free to those who sign up for a $5 monthly recurring donation to support EPautos, or for a one-time donation of $10 or more. (Please be sure to tell us you want a sticker – and also, provide an address for us to mail the thing to!)

  1. “So Close…”
    I thought of that phrase when I walked out of a Ford dealership today.
    I had gotten a contest thingie in the mail from them. It said, scratch off the number to see if it matches the number on this card and you Will win one of four prizes listed (a new car, a $5,000 TV, a $5,000 Wal-Mart gift card, or, 50 bucks cash). Not, “might win”, not “could win”, but “will win”.
    I scratched, and it did match.
    I thought, “Great! I can maybe send some to EPA. 50 Bucks minimum, it seemed.”

    I read the fine print – front to back – it didn’t say anything about a fifth prize or anything like that, but somehow, all I “won” was a five-freaking-Dollar Wal-Mart gift card. (And a low-ball offer to buy my truck.)

    …And they expect to win my business operating like that!? Yeesh.

    • Those things are as surely shysterism as running an engine at redline from cold start with no oil in the sump will leave you hoofing it in short order!

      • Even with oil in the sump Eric, cold to redline every frosty morning for a couple of weeks left my silly neighbour woman hoofing it for a new car.

      • I got the same mailer, with a guaranteed trade in price for my Jetta TDI. I thought, “if it’s worth that much to YOU, why would I want to trade it in on a Ford?”

      • I received this on my fake facebook acct from Larken Rose. For logistical/paranoical reasons I can’t pay/subscribe to this or anything for now.

        Would you be interested in the daily ranting of a “madman”? Lengthy daily audio files and other content for only $3.79/month.

        Matthew Beachum When the POTUS speaks, it’s shown on network television for free!

        Lisa M Bowman that’s because what the POTUS has to say isn’t worth a penny.

        Michael Sørensen Yes! – Now where did I leave that damn worthless piece of plastic, so I can sign up!

        Peter Voluntaryist Walker I subscribed. Network television is prolefeed.

        Larken Rose Some people have been bugging me to do this for ages, and now I’m finally doing a daily podcast thing. The bad news is, I couldn’t and wouldn’t do it at all if it didn’t make some damn money for my
        family. The good news is, it’s only $3.79 per MONTH.

        Each “rant” will be about 20 to 30 minutes long, and subscribers can e-mail me topics, or questions, or comments, or whatever, which I can respond to in subsequent “rants.” The cost amounts to just over TWELVE CENTS per day, which even I could afford.
        I also WANT those who subscribe to share these with their statist family and friends, and I’m planning the “rants” to be gentle enough and presented simply enough to be understandable and acceptable to “normal people,” while still being interesting and
        informative for those who have already escaped authoritarianism. Since I’m not doing public events or interviews anymore, and the frequency of my YouTube videos is way down while I work on a few HUGE projects, this is about the only way you’ll get regular doses of my “extremist rhetoric” (also known as “stating the bleeding obvious”). If that sounds worth it to you, please sign up. Thank you!

        Daniel West I’m in! I won’t be able to keep up with the daily frequency, but I’m sure looking forward to some rants.

        Dwayne Coots All up in it! Great idea to secure recurring income for your family so you can focus on your message. Totally support you Larken. Rock on.
