All elected politicians need now to react powerfully to the GOP attempt to steal our democracy represented by Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s personal request to his senate colleagues to vote against a January 6th Commission!
"key details about a shocking act of domestic extremism against the United States government" now likely to remain hidden. Any new info about the violent attack on the Capitol will be viewed thru partisan lens, further eroding fact/the public trust. https://t.co/THpchIn8I6

This Trump instigated act is so dangerous that the real response must be the massive rejection of any anti-democratic elected official, which basically means the 35 Republican Senators who went along with the evil McConnell choice just as many Republican led state leaders are bent on passing laws that reduce votes from qualified minority voters while claiming voter fraud is a danger when it is not!
This echo of the effect of Trump’s claim of the big lie about the November 3, 2020 Presidential election, is critical in our understanding why our fragile democracy is in deep trouble!
Hence my urgent advice is that the majority of our important corporations better now step up and see that these aberrant politicians get the message that the GOP can’t steal our democracy.
One way would be not giving money to those people.
Another would be for our major media providers to ensure that these dangerous GOP lies get exposed at every opportunity!
We already know that many members of the GOP are repelled by the behavior of its top leaders, but apparently too many fail or refuse to understand that the winning of the next election at the cost of destroying democracy is not related to an election choice but to a turn to tyranny!
American democracy is at a crossroads but we can hope that our corporate leaders can realize their continuing business self interest means this unacceptable GOP behavior must be interdicted ASAP.
