Just days away from the choice we must make about our government….
There has been a wealth of concern about the future of this country and our democracy (of wait for those semi literate Righties) (I realize this is a constitutional republic and not a true democracy) is in danger of collapse under the weight of the attacks from the Far Right.
Many Americans think our way of politics is broken….and now there can be a fix if we truly want to save the country and our way of life….
CNN brought some experts together to offer some solutions….
Though Americans don’t agree on many political issues, there is one issue both Democrats and Republicans acknowledge poses a major problem: the state of American democracy. According to a recent Quinnipiac University poll, 69% of Democrats and 69% of Republicans think the nation’s democracy is on the brink of collapse. And the figure for independents, 66%, isn’t much better.
This fear, if actualized, would have ripple effects around the world, given that so many nations look to the United States to be a global leader in democratic efforts. But it also has very real implications for our country’s immediate domestic politics and policy – as evidenced by the recent attacks against election officials across the country.
The threats after the 2020 presidential election were so serious, writes Philadelphia City Commissioner Lisa Deeley, that “I had two plain-clothes Philadelphia police officers assigned to follow me wherever I went – including the bathroom.”
We turned to a group of experts and asked what can be done to fix what is broken and restore faith in democracy.
I personally think changes in our current voting rights thing….and the shared experience will go a long way to repair that is needed.
You can be part of the solution….VOTE!
Think what this country has given you….now do you part to repair our riffs…..vote for the future not the problems of the past.
Just days before the decision….time to pay attention and do the right thing.
Do you want a future or do you want to live in the past?
It is your choice…..and I doubt we will work for the future….to be truthful.
