On Monday, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) released a video confirming that she is running for President in 2020.

“In our country, if you work hard and play by the rules, you ought to be able to take care of yourself and the people you love. That’s a fundamental promise of America. A promise that should be true for everyone,” Warren opens.

“I’ve spent my career getting to the bottom of why America’s promise works for some families, but others who work just as hard slip through the cracks into disaster. What I found is terrifying,” she continues.

“These aren’t cracks that families are falling into, they’re traps. America’s middle class is under attack.”

Warren goes on to talk about the billionaire class and corporate infiltration of American politics, the crippling of American unions, the dismantling of financial market rules meant to protect working Americans after the Great Depression, and tax cuts for the wealthy.

“But this dark path doesn’t have to be our future,” Warren ends. “We can make our democracy work for all of us. We can make our economy work for all of us.”

Help Keep Big Easy Magazine Alive

Hey y'all,

I just wanted to provide an update to where we stand today. A few days ago, we launched a fundraising effort to keep Big a Easy Magazine alive. We determined we would need to raise $10,000, which represents 1/10 of the personal investment I made into the publication. As it stands now, we have raised just over $300 and have set a fundraising deadline of midnight June 1st. Please help us meet our goal. I promise you with your support if we reach our goal, you will be able to continue seeing progressive content about the issues that matter. If we don’t meet our goal, well, in all honesty, those who have an interest in our demise will have won the battle. When we launched the fundraising effort, we got bombarded with remarks such as “see ya,” and “lol.” We cannot allow them to win. Please donate today to keep us alive and support progressive media.

Thank you,
Scott Ploof
