  • Will Democrats Turn Out Enough Votes this Fall to Overwhelm the Republican Anti-Democracy Machine?

    Thom plus logo George W. Bush and Donald Trump both lost the popular vote, by a half-million and 3 million votes respectively, yet occupied the White House even though a majority of Americans didn't want them there.

    Similarly, in 2012 Democrats got 1.4 million more votes nationwide for the House of Representatives, yet that body was controlled by Republicans with a 33 seat "majority."

    Thom plus logo Pacific Gas and Electric, known as PG&E, just pled guilty to killing 84 American citizens.

    When they want to buy politicians' favors and votes, they claim that they are a "person," but when they admit to killing real human persons, they claim that they are just a corporation and therefore nobody can or should go to jail.
