The Republican Party has decided to come out of the closet as a fascist entity preferring support from Vladimir Putin to increasing democracy in the US. It is a problem for our country because it both emboldens oligarchs in Russia while alerting freedom loving Americans of a threat. Almost 75 million Americans voted for a clownish fascist named Trump after observing his insanity for four years, but over 81 million rose up to end the madness. We will go into 2022 with clear stakes for both sides and Republicans determined to remove the vote from Americans who oppose them. A destabilized America is the greatest wish of Putin and America’s enemies; it is an increasing possibility with Republican led attacks on our democratic systems. Americans must send a clear signal about who they are or we will find ourselves speeding towards the abyss. America is the last best hope of mankind and it is critical that we resume acting like it. Four years of Trump did not destroy the country, but our moves in the next four years are critical to its success. Reject pettiness, greed, and selfishness to stand up fo our republic and the civil rights of all Americans.
