Moscow Mitch Set To Kill Lady Liberty

Thom plus logo The single most important defining characteristic of an authoritarian dictatorship is that the authoritarian leader uses the power of the state to maintain his own personal power. This is something that "divided government" - three separate branches of government that are coequal - was designed to prevent.

With Mitch McConnell promoting Dershowitz's idea that a president can commit any kind of crime he wants so long as it gets him reelected because he "believes his reelection is in the public interest," we are about to see our American democratic republic transformed into an oligarchic semi-dictatorship. This is exactly what the Founders warned us against, and may well be the death-knell of not only our democracy, but of democracy around the world.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."

From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
