DescriptionLike many political news sites Plunderbund was born out of frustration. Ohio-based writer Eric Vessels had been disengaged from politics for years but when President Bush was reelected in 2004 his apathy transformed into anger. “I realized I hadn’t been an active part of doing anything to make the country go in the direction I wanted it to” says Vessels. “I couldn’t sit back and complain about it without participating in the process.”
