[Movie tip: 1985 opens today in NY and LA. So powerful. It’s impossible not to care about this small-town Texas family.]
Do you know what?
Sure, Republican voter suppression tactics have evolved. (I’ve noted the particular irony of their efforts to keep Native Americans from voting, since they’re the only Americans who aren’t immigrants.)
And, sure, Republicans have spent four more years sabotaging the Affordable Care Act rather than proposing anything to improve or replace it.
But if you updated it all, the conclusions would be the same.
The only important difference is that this time, with a sociopath unchecked in the White House, our democracy itself is in peril.
Quote of the Day
A black man voting for the Republicans makes about as much sense as a chicken voting for Col. Sanders.~James Baldwin, Nobody Knows My Name
