Is Democracy Dying in the USA? [View all]

If the Republicans have their way, it is. What they want has nothing to do with a democratic republic. They'd like nothing better than to replace it with an oligarchy or with dictatorial, dominionistic despotism.

If we want to preserve some semblance of democracy in this country, Democrats are going to have to participate in that democracy at a higher level. We have enough people to stop the Republicans from de-democratizing the country, but we have a lot of trouble getting them to the polling place.

We need to fix that, and promptly. We have less than a year before the 2018 mid-term elections. Each of us needs to dedicate ourselves to getting every last Democrat and every person who is dissatisfied out to vote. If we do that, we can preserve at least some semblance of democracy. If we do not, the Republicans will work as hard as possible to dismantle it.

And that's the absolute truth.
