This terrific piece argues “we must organize rather than agonize” . . . that “Nihilism remains the GOP’s ultimate Trump card.”
Don’t let them sucker you.
Be a fanatical optimist. Make a plan. Take action. Listen to your conscience. Vote.
Ironically, the friend who sent me this — only some of whose German ancestors made it onto Schindler’s list — has made a plan. Is taking action. He’s scraping together the final $116,000 in fees needed for Canadian citizenship.*
Needless to say, I think he’s over-reacting.
But then I watched Bill Maher’s lastest New Rules. (“When a country slides into authoritarian rule, you don’t get a text alert.”)
I still think my friend is over-reacting. I ain’t leavin’.
But watch Bill Maher and share widely.
*This leaves him little or nothing, he explains, to help fund the early organizing snowball that — if we all lean in — will wrest power from Trump and McConnell.
