  • I understand the feeling, but the problem is, keeping a democracy is eternal vigilance and always has been. Things have gotten to this point because we stopped being vigilant around 1980. Yes Republicans should be dissolved as a party but who’s going to do that? Yes under a trump regime you and every protestor will be arrested – and you’ll stay arrested. If trump gets in, it will come to what to say but you’ll have zero power to do anything about it under a brutally repressive maga regime.
    Better to take power the only viable way, which is to replace one of the two existing parties. Take over the democratic party just like the magas took over the republican party. It can be done but we have to keep the fascists from taking control first.



  • In the past, the coup attempt would have barred him from running again because when he was impeached after it, the Senate would have unanimously convicted him which would have disqualified him. But since the entire republican party is complicit, they acquitted him instead, which allowed him to run again.

    The entire republican party and 2/3 of the Supreme Court are completely on board with project 2025 establishing an authoritarian christian dominionist regime, which means the normal government checks and balances have already been corrupted and neutralized.

    We the voters are the only remaining barrier that can stop it, the only way to do that is keep the Democratic party in power. We did it in 2020, partly in 2022 (we lost the House), we have to do it again now in 2024, and we’ll have to keep doing it every election until they are finally destroyed as a viable party. We’ve been barely hanging on with the thinnest of margins.

    They can keep trying again and again–we can only fail once (like we did in 2016). One more failure and they win for good because they’ll implement Project 2025 and it’s over.
