People often say, with pride, ‘I’m not interested in politics.’ They might as well say, ‘I’m not interested in my standard of living, my health, my job, my rights, my future or any future.’…If we mean to keep any control over our world and lives, we must be interested in politics.

Martha Gellhorn, journalist, 1984

We aim to be your one stop shop for Oklahoma political news.

The Okie is run by people who know politics. We know it, we love it, and we strive to get more good people involved in the process. It’s in our blood.

Whether it’s front page headlines, blogs, or the “backroom politics” of old-fashioned, smoke-filled room maneuvering, politics is an overwhelming influence on our daily lives.

Our mission is to bring an engaging, political website to readers in both Oklahoma and nationwide, covering the issues and figures shaping our cities, state, and nation. We want to educate, inform and help shape the debate.

We at The Okie feel this political world can be an entertaining influence, and we invite our readers to join us in this endeavor.

Just tell them, “I read it on The Okie.”

We would love to hear from you. Got a press release (political only please,) a question that needs to be answered, or you just want to advertise on the site. Give us a shout via the form below or email us directly at INFO [at] THEOKIE .com
