Rescue democracy in midterm elections

What a year we have just witnessed! We’ve had a front-row seat in a class on how to destroy a democracy.

There was much lamenting about how acrimonious we’ve become as a nation. While that is true, I believe that particular circumstance may begin to change in 2018. I believe that a majority of our citizenry is fed up with the lies, greed, corruption, callousness, and acts of potential conspiracy that have emanated not only from the White House, but from the Republican Congress as well. That new majority will make its presence known at the ballot box in November. United we stand.

Will you join us in rescuing our democracy?
