You lost out if you failed to tune into Amy Siskind on July 9th. Since Trump’s inauguration, she has been keeping a weekly list that tracks specific news stories representing eroding norms under the current regime. She did say that she’s more optimistic that if he does refuse to leave, the military would likely escort him out. However, “if we lose, our democracy, as we know it, is over.” The key, she says, is turnout. We must encourage early voting and we need to win “overwhelmingly”.

We’ve been through hell these last 4 years, and in 119 days we have one final chance to save this country. Over the last few months, we have watched COVID-19 ravage our country and we’ve struggled to pay bills through the economic collapse. We’ve flooded the streets through the tear gas and rubber bullets, protesting the unjust killing of George Floyd.We are literally fighting for our lives in November and that is why work like this is so important right now.
On July 2nd, Eleven Films released the Dangerous Ones, which quickly went viral. We were so honored at the overwhelming response and we want to thank everyone for sharing it. It was shared on All In with Chris Hayes on MSNBC that night as an effective way to motivate voters to vote. With your support, Eleven Films can produce a video every two weeks until we take the White House and Senate and grow the House.NOW is the time to step up our game and that is why we are asking YOU to help DemCast and Eleven Films ensure these videos can be completed and broadcast across all social media channels.

NO ROADS TO RUIN UPDATE
With the need for severe budget cuts, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that the state needs to spend its precious tax dollars on critical state needs (education, public health, the unemployed, housing — the list goes on and on) and should immediately stop wasting money on M-CORES.
See one article here.
What can we do? We can lobby the task force members (and here) directly. We can write letters to the editor. WE CAN LET OUR VOICES BE HEARD!
