Of Course Inflation Is Awful! Of Course The Supply Chain Problem And The Price Of Gas Is Horrible. However Serious Those Issues Are, Americans Must Not Make Them More Important Than Saving Our Democracy From The Radicalized Republican Party. Unfortunately, Traditional Conservatives Have Given Their Party Over To Trump And His Corrupt MAGA Politics And America’s Bigger Problem Is The Department Of Justice Hasn’t Prosecuted The Crimes Being Committed By Radicalized Republican Politicians. The American Government Must Use The Law To Neuter The Power Of Lying In Politics.
In an analysis of the book, “It’s Time To Fight Dirty”, Dr. John Messerly explains the “prisoner’s dilemma theory” which in layman’s term means, “If your opponent plays dirty and you play nice you get steamrolled, you become a sucker. In this case, you have no choice but to fight fire with fire or you will be dominated.” In his 2018 book, David Faris suggests bold actions the democrats could take if they win the 2020 presidential election and control of Congress. Without needing new constitutional amendments, the book suggests the democrats could:
Abolish the filibuster so any bill can pass the Senate with 50 votes and the veep
Make D.C. a state, which would add two black Democratic senators to the Senate
Make Puerto Rico a state, which would add two Latino Democrats to the Senate
Break California into multiple states to add yet more Democrats to the Senate
Expand the Supreme Court to 11 (or more) justices, and have the president appoint 40-year-olds
They could then reform voting rights by:
requiring a 2-week period of early voting from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day
making make pre-registration of 17-year-olds legal nationwide
forbidding states from passing voter-ID laws or imposing other non-Constitutional voting requirements
making it a federal crime to intimidate voters
making Election Day a national holiday for federal employees (and others)
fighting gerrymandering by doubling the size of the House (and having multimember districts with proportional representation.)
Faris was warning democrats in 2018 that if they won the 2020 election they would have to fight hard, smart and be willing to bend or eliminate rules and laws that weaken democracy. However, democrats, especially President Biden, refuse to radically fight back against the corrupt, dishonest, violent agenda of the Trump Republican party.
The violent, dark, disordered character of Donald Trump continues to put American lives in danger. His malignant narcissism is spreading through the Republican party like terminal cancer. People are dying, and careers are being destroyed because of Trump’s toxic existence. During the Covid-19 pandemic, Trump compromised the public health of Americans by lying about the danger that the virus posed. He dismantled the Pandemic Prevention Playbook put in place by the Obama Administration, discouraged mask-wearing, promoted bogus therapeutics, and discredited the pandemic medical professionals, and elevated wackos onto his Covid assistance medical team.
