The 1930s is an example of the results of doing nothing
Always enjoy when Reed, Rick & Steve share their thoughts. As one who has watched but never participated in politics, this shows me that is dangerous (See series The Man in the High Castle). So, how can a retired librarian quarantined & skilled in research help in the center of Trump land, Palm Beach County? What is the structure of politics behind the scenes?
Supporters of Democracy
As a life-long Democrat I enthusiastically join them since these times require our first loyalty to be an American for democracy regardless of political party. I am grateful for their practical advice in the continuing battle to save our democracy.
Great podcast today. As a lifelong Democrat, I don’t know any fellow Dems that don’t agree with you. My friends and I are honored that we have the Lincoln Project along with other Republicans fighting to save democracy. We can have policy debates later. Defund the police was wrong from the beginning—as a slogan. I used to argue with my husband about the word antifa also. Anti fascist would have been so much better. Antifa sounds scary.
We all need each other in this struggle to save our democracy
