After democracy dies

Maybe we’ll be haunted by the fact that we had a chance to save it — and did not.

So what will you do after democracy dies?

Who will we be after democracy dies?

After democracy dies, will we remember the country we had? Will we remember all that we lost? How will we explain what we allowed to happen?

Will we be ashamed after democracy dies?

1. And how, if ever, will democracy be restored?

Once you lose it, you don’t win it back easily. We’re talking about the worst case scenario.
My question is; what the hell do these people expect life to be like in a dictatorship? Nirvana? All of us sitting in a circle singing Kumbaya?

Biden and Garland - Please don’t live in the illusion that if we play nice, we’ll win. We won’t.

4. I get it the author is trying to convey how serious of a position

We are in. However the way i see it, its time to kick some butt . The pandemic put an end to my attending protests in 2020 but not in this vaccinated year. I intend to continue emailing my senators and representatives and attending any protests i can. The GOP cannot stop us cold with just Manchin, Sinema and the walking dead McConnell. If these people are successful it is because we let them.
