Are you aware that the 2022 election is a referendum in defense of American democracy? Don't let them take your vote away.


Democrats believe voters decide elections — not rogue partisan actors, not vice presidents, not state legislatures. Issue One.


[Per Biden] Condemning election deniers, refusing to accept violence as a legitimate aspect of governance and showing democracy can “do big things” are all part of fortifying our democracy. J. Rubin


“We journalists were brought up to believe there’s two different political parties with different points of view and we don’t take sides in honest disagreements between them. But these are not honest disagreements. The Republican Party right now is led by a dishonest demagogue.”  Veteran White House reporter John Harwood, on leaving CNN. 


“Republican obstructionism is making democracy unworkable and dysfunctional. Stunts to shut down the government, to threaten to default on the debt and to block as many of the president’s nominees as possible reflect the GOP’s refusal to recognize the opposition’s legitimate right to govern and to further frustrate, anger and disillusion the base. Republicans aim to show democracy as too as too messy, divisive, and incompetent to meet the people’s needs, as wannabe autocrats invariably try to do.”  J. Rubin


Some  Republicans were and are willing to destroy our democracy to hold on to power.  Voters decide elections — not rogue partisan actors, not vice presidents, not state legislatures.


Three Republicans:


  • "I do not want to be a winner by cheating." – Rusty Bowers (R)


  • “We don’t swear an oath to an individual or a political party. We take our oath to defend the United States Constitution, and that oath must mean something." … Tonight, I say this to my Republican colleagues who are defending the indefensible: There will come a day when Donald Trump is gone, but your dishonor will remain.” Liz Cheney, Vice Chair (R), Jan. 6 Commission


  • Mike Pence: "President Trump is wrong. I had no right to overturn the election. The presidency belongs to the American people and the American people alone… There's nothing more un-American" to have "any one person ... choose the American president."


“I agree restoration of faith that democracy can offer rule-based, clean and competent government. That should spur both political parties to recognize high performers and to embrace a variety of reforms aimed to combat cronyism, conflicts of interest and politicization of scientists’ and prosecutors’ work. Our democracy depends on it.” Jennifer Rubin, WashPost, 5/4/22
