Our Republic Is At Risk

Is Trump Encouraging Civil War?

Thom plus logo Over the weekend, Donald Trump used words like "treason" and "Civil War" in his tweets, and called for the imprisonment of the US congressman who is leading the impeachment inquiry. Clearly, he is willing to put personal political survival above the good of our country, which is all the more reason he needs to be impeached right away.

Would You Rat Out A Mob Boss?

Our Republic Hangs in the Balance

Time To Clean House?

Call Congress & Demand Trump Be Impeached Now

GM Shows Why We Need Medicare for All

Thom plus logo General Motors just pulled healthcare for 50,000 workers. There are some Democratic candidates suggesting that people love their health insurance companies, but this calculated move by a giant corporation that you and I helped bail out proves that employer sponsored healthcare is just another tool to control workers.

Should Trump Have the Power To Take Us to War?

Thom plus logo Now is a really important time to remind Americans of something that the roughly half of us who took civics in school know. Only Congress can authorize a war.
