Both the 2022 and the 2024 elections hinge upon the answer to a pivotal question: Will the majority of voters favor further progress toward multiracial, one-person-one-vote democracy or will the majority vote Republican?
Will voters favor honesty or mendacity? Facts or delusions? Science or quackery? Democracy or autocracy? Equality of opportunity or plutocratic oligarchy?
Will the Republicans continue to successfully sustain and advance plutocracy while garnering support from populists who vote their fears and animosities rather than their own economic interests?
As voters we can prevent this, but we have to vote.
The Republican Party has become the party of increasingly open wanna-be autocrats and proto-facists. The more races they win, the more likely the future of this nation will be anti-democratic. And the rest of the media needs to cover these issues as such.
The Election Denier Who Could Run Michigan’s Elections:
It seems like an essy call to vote for Jocelyn Benson. A couple of Republicans, according to the article, are disappointed with her for trying to expand the vote, but I'd say that's a good thing.
@TonyStark According to the article, this is what a Republican who isn't pleased with the direction of the party says about the current crop of candidates who want to steal elections: “Crazy is powerful, and it doesn’t get tired.”
Karamo (if she wins) in Michigan, Mastriano in Pennsylvania, whichever Republican wins in Georgia this week – Democrats must vote against them in November.
Can you imagine the self-loathing that must be present to be not only a woman, but a Black woman, and willfully be a member of a party that actively seeks to dehumanize you, take away your control over your own body, and make it harder for you to vote.
Is the desire for a tiny bit of power, or a desperate need to be given a pat on the head from scum like Donald Trump, that strong? Do people like Karamo or Clarence Thomas or Tim Scott think that when they leave a room, the Republicans remaining aren't laughing their rears off at them?
