It has been just one year since our Capitol was attacked and desecrated. Since then, Republicans at all levels of government have been working to install a slow-motion coup with Donald Trump’s stooges in offices. Meanwhile, the Democrats in Congress are trying to woo Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) into passing two voting rights bills. But not all of our Democratic leaders are sitting on their thumbs.
Former First Lady Michelle Obama tweeted Sunday morning what she and other Democrats have been doing to help save Americans from a dictator Trump who is similar to Russia’s dictator Vladimir Putin, lacking only the exercise.
‘Democracy is not a state. It is an act.’
Then, Obama talked about what an individual can do:
‘And protecting it requires all of us. That’s why his generation organized, marched, and died to defend the very rights that are under attack today. And it’s why we’re calling on community leaders, organizations, businesses and all Americans to join our efforts in this critical moment for our history and the future of our country. ‘
Her tweet explained that the Republicans have been committed to making it “harder to vote:”
‘In 2020, millions made their voices heard at the polls. But now, folks who oppose that progress are making it harder to vote. That’s why I’m asking you to join @WhenWeAllVote and 30 other organizations to turn out more voters and urge Congress to pass voting rights legislation.’
Mrs. Obama wrote this:
‘Check out our letter published in The New York Times on Sunday, January 9 calling on our elected officials to protect the right to vote.’
Each American stalled with where to start will be able to find a their place to help getting out the vote now.
