[twenty-twenty four day thirteen]: are you registered to vote?

2024 is shaping up to be one of the most consequential American elections in recent history, in which our first twice-impeached ex-president is running AGAIN for the highest office in the land. When he ran for office the first time, it wasn’t clear precisely what he would do if elected, and Clinton had her own problems.

But now, what Trump stands for – and would do – is clear. Even if you forget the two impeachments (no convictions) and the many indictments (not conclusive yet), Trump was more than just a poor loser hawking false claims of a stolen election: he actively tried to overturn it, and stoked the fires of insurrection on January 6th. He’s a proven threat to American democracy.

And, not just a proven threat: he’s an openly stated threat to American democracy. If elected, he openly admits plans to purse his enemies, Ron Desantis-style. And he’s backed by the Heritage Foundation’s Project 2025 plan to reshape our civil-service-based federal bureaucracy into a Soviet-style system controlled by the Republican party apparatus.

American democracy is the light of the world. Whether you’re Democrat or Republican, you should register to vote, and vote for almost anyone else than Trump. And if you’re a Republican, you should contact your congrescritter and state your opposition to Project 2025.

Democracy is a wonderful thing – if we can keep it.
