Some of you have been asking what the future of SSG holds. Will we retire until the next election, as many political gambling platforms before us have?
I’ve thought about that, because maintaining this blog and podcast means I basically never sleep and can barely hold a job in a work environment more competitive than Denny’s.
But I’ve also thought about how much fun it’s been to get to know all of you — truly, thousands of you at this point — and to live right on the cutting edge of political insight and cultural discourse.
As someone who has worked at a high level in politics, I can say without hesitation that the amount of thought that the average political gamblers puts into what is happening far exceeds that of a full-time, salaried political operative. PredictIt players just do it better.
So really, at the end of the day, the question of, “Keendawg, will the show go on?” is not even a question at all.
Not only will Star Spangled Gamblers continue, but it will move harder and faster than ever before.
The question is — what do you want, Animals?
Because of your word-of-mouth support, we’ve accumulated an audience that is big enough to support 1 podcast a week and all the associated fees of maintaining a blog, website, etc. Believe it or not, the cost of doing that is in the thousands of dollars per year, so you’ve really stepped-up and we appreciate it. THANK YOU.
Now, for the next evolution of SSG, we are contemplating some new features and want to hear from you about what you’d like to have the most. They include:
- A hosted group chat, Discord, or private Facebook group for SSG followers and subscribers to exchange tips and strategies on.
- A bipartisan PAC to contribute to candidates that the Boys would like
- Nightly round-ups of the news cycle to be distributed as pods and YouTube videos.
- Zoom happy hours
- Webinars about novice, intermediate, and advanced political gambling strategies.
Our resources are finite, so your feedback on what type of content you’re most interested in is deeply appreciated.
Please CONTACT US and let us know.
Speaking of which, the #1 thing you can do to support this platform is to tell other people about it. We cover the exact same news stories as every other publication they’re reading, just in the special odds-focused format that you know and love. In fact, here is a unique piece of content that we’ve created for you to share with newcomers. So just do it!
Lastly, if your resources are substantial, then please consider joining our Patreon group. We are in the process of rolling out premium features like advanced access to picks and special bonus content, and we will probably be increasing the cost of our membership tiers as we do that. So join now, while it’s cheap!
Now that we’ve passed around the Offering basket, let me return to what our core mission is at SSG: to be YOUR voice in the world.
It’s long been my belief that the truth of what is happening on the planet is badly distorted by partisan agendas and emotional freakouts; and that commentary based on predictive trading would be a valuable antidote to the divisiveness of the modern media, which is little more than opinion journalism masquerading as “news.” From the response we’ve seen the past two years, the only conclusion I can draw is that thousands of you agree.
So let’s do it. Let’s change the world by being true, having fun, and crushing those betting lines because we see it straight and call it that way too. Let’s do all of that together.
We appreciate all of the help you’ve done to get this platform off the ground, and we look forward to working with you, “the Boys” to keep on growing in the years to come.
