The Wealthy Are Killing Us
The Wealthy Are Killing Us
Two things along similar lines caught my eye today, both dealing with the income disparity in the U.S.  The first was an email/newsletter I received from Robert Reich about how this nation’s people are suffering in numerous ways that could be alleviated if only the wealthy paid their fair share in taxes.  This is a topic I’ve addressed before and in my opinion, it is criminal that the top 1% of…

Biden Must Get Manchin and Sinema to Fall in Line | Robert Reich
Great advice to Joe Biden from Richard Reich. We just hope Joe is listening.
After we secure voter rights, we'll work on 100% public-funded elections, proportional representation (e.g. Ranked Choice Voting) and 3rd parties.
It's all for democracy.

As former Sec. of Labor Robert Reich points out, the GOP is shrinking.
Since 1991 the only presidential election where the Republican candidate got more popular votes than the Democratic candidate was in 2004. That’s just 12.5% of the presidential elections in 30 years.
We are seeing a situation similar to that of apartheid-era South Africa which had been ruled by a shrinking white nationalist minority.
In South Africa the pro-apartheid National Party tried dubious gimmicks to remain in power. It created oddly-shaped and disconnected “bantustans” which it claimed were independent countries which various black ethnic groups were supposed to be citizens of. No other country recognized these gerrymandered fake countries. They also created a three-chamber parliament: one chamber each for whites, coloreds, and Asians. Of course the white chamber outvoted the non-white ones.
In the US, Republicans use voter suppression to give their mostly white supporters an unfair advantage. They also protect the filibuster -- an archaic non-constitutional institution in the Senate which gives Republicans the ability to block legislation that promotes voting rights or lets them prevent moderate and progressive federal judges from being confirmed.
Gerrymandered Republican control of state legislatures has stifled any attempt to pass meaningful reform of the outmoded Electoral College.
So just like the white supremacist National Party in old South Africa, the white supremacist Republican Party must depend on brazen gimmicks to cling to power.

More wisdom from Robert Reich.
From the article, which I think succinctly describes the current political climate:
“ There is no longer a "center" in American politics. No middle ground between lies and facts. No halfway point between civil discourse and violence. No midrange between democracy and fascism. “
