This is your country on Republicans
The media in our country is a complete and utter joke. They give unlimited airtime to the bloated orange gas bag, yet no time to discuss important issues. The media made Trump and they continue to profit off of his stupidity.
The public airwaves belong to us, we need to reclaim them from the corporate cartels that poison us with misinformation and propaganda
Reinstate the fairness doctrine ✅
Fully fund public radio and television ✅
Break up the media oligopoly ✅
Revoke broadcast charters from sensationalized entertainment stations that pretend to be news ✅
Hold personalities accountable for spreading blatant lies and propaganda ✅
We have had major issues in this country for at least the past five decades. Globalization, endless wars of empire, the full takeover of our government and airwaves by corporate interests, the decline in workers rights and labor unions, deregulation, environmental degradation, the destruction of civic society, stagnant wages, the decline in our standard of living, exploding medical costs, and the decimation of American education are what elected Trump.
Trump is a symptom of a broken economic and political system. Merely replacing trump with another corporate public relations crafted politician will not solve the any of the above stated issues, the issues that allowed Trump to be elected. Until we solve the systemic problems with our society, country, and government, we will be doomed to a fate even worse than Trump. Because the next right wing phony populist will most likely be intelligent, crafty, charismatic, and lethal for our country. Think of a charming version of Trump who is eloquent and knows how to operate the political machinery, that’s who we get next if we don’t fix the underlying problems.
Tomorrow is Election Day. Please get and vote. The fate of our country is on the line. This will be the most partisan post from us in a long time.
The Democrats aren’t perfect, in fact many are awful. Right now we need to send a message to Trump and the fascist GOP. The democrats need to take control of the House at a minimum to check trump. This is the number one issue right now. Vote tomorrow and organize the next day. It’s time for us to take control of our country. If the republicans maintain control of all three branches of government, the republic will be completely dismantled. This may be our last opportunity to vote and affect change. That is no joke
It took decades to get into the mess, it will take decades to get out of it. This is only step one. Please vote and rebuke the fascist GOP tomorrow at all levels!
An open letter to the Democratic National Committee: Please resign, on behalf of the party and the country – NY Daily News
“This is how the Democratic leadership has behaved for decades, offering policies with little bite, and expecting the populace to rally to their banner simply because they were not Republican.”
On behalf of your party and your countrymen to whom you have given so much, I ask one further service.
Our last decent president. While the other ex presidents tour the country raking in money off their fame and status, Carter is the only one with the guts or decency to speak the truth.
“He’s an idiot. It’s pointless to try to convince him of anything. He’s gone off the rails. We’re in crazytown,” Kelly is quoted as saying at a staff meeting in his office. “I don’t even know why any of us are here. This is the worst job I’ve ever had.”
President Donald Trump’s closest aides have taken extraordinary measures in the White House to try to stop what they saw as his most dangerous impulses, going so far as to swipe and hide papers from his desk so he wouldn’t sign them, according to a new book from legendary journalist Bob Woodward.
