An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Wake up and defend democracy before it's too late.

44 so far! Let’s get to 50 signers!

I'm horrified. Not because Senate Republicans blocked the formation of a 1/6 commission, but because Senate Democrats, including my own senator, Dianne Feinstein, are incapable of recognizing what is happening right now, and fighting back against it. Here is the truth: Republicans are authoritarians who do not care about democracy, and in fact are opposed to it. You cannot work with them, not anymore. You cannot do bipartisan things – just look at today. This bill passed by 19 votes and FAILED. This is not democracy; it is its antithesis. End the filibuster. Pass popular things. Things that have BIPARTISAN support across America. Stop misunderstanding bipartisanship as the insular idiosyncrasies of the antidemocratic Senate and start understanding it as what the majority of Americans want: free and fair elections, nonpartisan districting, economic equality, dismantling white supremacy, and fighting climate change. Do that, or else watch this country end. It's up to you, and I have no idea why this is so hard for you.
