A Note To Readers: Issues & Insights has just surpassed 1 million page views! And we did in just over three months through the labor of only three highly dedicated journalists, along with the indispensable help of a tech expert who has freely given of her time. We also have to recognize the contributions the great writers who provided top-flight material without asking for anything in return. We also thank each person who has read our work.

What we have achieved with a small staff, minimal advertising revenue, and a few dollars dropped in our Tip Jar (we are grateful to all who have contributed) is extraordinary. But we have visions of taking things much further. So we’re asking readers to remember our Tip Jar, and to encourage those who haven’t been to our pages yet to donate.  We want to reach the next million faster than we reached the first, and continue to spread the principles of free markets, free men, and limited government. If everyone contributes the smallest amount, which is just $1, we can keep the momentum going.

Thank you!
