America as a One-Party State, in American Prospect, is an absolute must-read. “The target is not the Democrats but democracy itself.”
“There have been moments in American history when we kept our republic only by the slenderest of margins. This year is one of those times. “
Read it with everything from this piece in mind. This is not like previous “elections.” There is not a pendulum that naturally swings back and adjusts politics — the things that happen do so because people make them happen. This right-wing crowd is not fucking around and they are not concerned with your — or the country’s — best interests. This is a true turning point in American history. The choices you make and they way you spend your time between now and election day will determine whether there is right-wing theocratic ideological domination of the country — and therefore the planet — for the foreseeable future.
