Are We Going to Vote in November?

Thom plus logo In two or three weeks we're going to start seeing people show up in hospitals in Wisconsin because of the stunt Republicans in the Wisconsin legislature, the Wisconsin Supreme Court, and the US Supreme Court pulled off this week. Many of those people will die, just so Republicans could suppress the vote in Wisconsin.

It's also obvious from Trump's statements yesterday that the GOP sees this as a trial run for November. They are going to do everything they can to make it difficult for Americans to vote because, as Heritage Foundation cofounder Paul Weyrich said back in 1980 when he was helping run the Reagan campaign, "I don't want everybody to vote... Our leverage in the election, quite candidly, goes up as the voting populace goes down."

The GOP has made it quite clear that they don't care what the fallout may be from their voter suppression, including people dying, so long as it keeps them in power.

Democrats must step up and loudly assert Americans' right to vote, and get vote-by-mail into law in every state in time for the election this fall.

The Colorado Governor had a request in for 10000 ventilators. On his own he found 500 and issued a PO. But FEMA overrode him and purchased the ventilators. Then Cory Gardner Republican Senator was given 100 ventilators by Trump with a press release that he had obtained them for the State of Colorado. They are playing politics with peoples lives.

Do not understand why you keep repeating this. Senile? Why not call. Thom and Mark do not screen questions like right wingers do. Do you have a reference that cleary shows it?

Everything Trump Touches Dies - Including Trade & Bringing Jobs Home

Thom plus logo This just in from Lori Wallach, Director Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch - In his speech now underway at Whirlpool in Ohio, Trump claimed to have met all of his trade promises from 2016. NOT!
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Never one to shy away from the truth, Thom Hartmann’s collected works are inspiring, wise, and compelling. His work lights the way to a better America."
Van Jones, cofounder of RebuildTheDream.com and author of The Green Collar Economy
From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
From Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community and When Corporations Rule the World and board chair of YES! magazine
