America today is being governed by the minority because the majority is not consistently and collaboratively speaking up and speaking out. That has to change. Here’s my advice/rant to effect that change…
#resist #democracy #liberty #truth #justice #America #freedom
For all of us who care about our democracy & who cherish the freedom and liberty of being Americans, now is the time. Raise your voices. Contact your elected representatives at every level. Write letters, call in to radio programs, share on social media. VOTE. 2/6
To the Republicans who are concerned about the decline of our democracy: you must join your colleagues Ana Navarro, Steve Schmidt, & yes, George Will & speak out. Contact your party leaders and let them know this is not okay. Stand up for America and for American principles. 3/6
To Democrats, I say this: you must engage. All of you. Now. You cannot remain on the sidelines. You must use your voice and your power as citizens (while you still have it) to say “no more.” Enough. America is on the precipice. We cannot let it become an autocracy, or worse. 4/6
To the Democratic Party (which I'm a member of), I say this: LEAD. Now. The American people won’t let you govern until you’ve shown you can lead us out of this mess. We need you to govern. Start leading so that you have that opportunity. 5/6
To everyone I say this: if you love America (and I hope you do), show it. Stand up for truth, justice, liberty and the pursuit of happiness (everyone’s happiness, not just yours). Democracy is not a spectator sport. Vote. Demonstrate. Engage. 6/6 #resist #democracy #vote #engage
