The amazing Lincoln Project has a way of reaching into the hearts of Americans and reminding us of the country we once knew. It is made up of Republicans turned Democrats and Independents and even some still-Republicans who believe in America. Today it is celebrating its first year in existence. In the past four years, Donald Trump has virtually set off dynamite charges beneath the very foundation of our government. But remember, he has not threatened our very Democracy without help.
Senate Majority Moscow Mitch McConnell (R-KY) conspired with the president to commit a daylight coup, according to The Lincoln Project, that would have taken us into a full-fledged dictatorship. Then, there were the Republican senators who stood by silently, passively supporting the coup. Their jobs were more important to them than our great nation. This was outrageous, well beyond wrong. It was a terrible betrayal.
This is not a blue versus red problem as those behind the coup would have us believe. Americans basically have the same values no matter their party. Of course, there are differences, but none so terrible that we should fight against one another. This is an authoritarian government versus a democracy fight. It is Trumpism against America. This is the doing of the despicable McConnell, Trump, and the Senate Republicans.
Now, Americans understand that supporting our country is no longer a spectator sport. In Alabama, people are coming out in record numbers to take down the self-described Grim Reaper McConnell and his cohorts. The Lincoln Project has provided us with the compass that points us toward the direction we must take to save our great nation. Americans are up for it.
So, today we celebrate:
‘A year ago, The Lincoln Project was born. As we look forward and face blatant acts of sedition, it’s clear that the long-fight for what it means to be an American is just beginning.’
