I worked on trying to raise taxes on the top half of one percent of richest, mostly international conglomerates, in Oregon -- and it failed.

Don't imagine for a second that just because people vote out Trump sycophants, they're actually for what you're advocating for.


Let me suggest that we start instead with working for a national adoption of Oregon's vote by mail system, which will make it much easier for busy poor people to vote. Even then they may be fooled by oligarchs, but it will be harder to do it consistently.
