An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Stop GOP destruction of our democracy

6 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

Please read what Julian Borger writes in today's Guardian newspaper: "The Republican party has become dramatically more illiberal in the past two decades and now more closely resembles ruling parties in autocratic societies than its former centre-right equivalents in Europe, according to a new international study. Whether Trump or Biden wins, US-China relations look set to worsen Read more In a significant shift since 2000, the GOP has taken to demonising and encouraging violence against its opponents, adopting attitudes and tactics comparable to ruling nationalist parties in Hungary, India, Poland and Turkey. The shift has both led to and been driven by the rise of Donald Trump. By contrast the Democratic party has changed little in its attachment to democratic norms, and in that regard has remained similar to centre-right and centre-left parties in western Europe. Their principal difference is the approach to the economy." I ask you to take a stand against the danger posed by the GOP to our democracy, our institutions, the rule of law, the constitution, our allies, our lives, human decency, basic fairness, and the notion of a shared objective scientifically informed truth. Speak out. Silence is compliance.
