1. How SAD to think........

that we once had brilliant people like him serving in an administration - helping to LEAD, not DESTROY, democracy.

2. I agree.

One can have more confidence in that, no matter how the MIC controls things.

Well, he is serving us right now by doing that kind of research and giving us a quick, simple overview of his findings with the added benefit of ideas about how we can respond and what can actually be done.

I have great appreciation and admiration for people like Robert Reich. Even though the situation may be dire, politically, watchful eyes who know what they are talking about really shine some light on the dark, dismal septic tank we have now and they let us know that there are people out there who could govern effectively.

4. Thanks!

Yes, though this has a big effect on local districts and such, the aggregation of it all is about the outcome of presidential election as well in various ways, so it is important to know about.

Their strategy must get visibility and attention.

5. I hope you will consider posting this again, for the DU'ers who missed it the first time.

(Maybe in General Discussion, if that's okay)

6. Sounds good!

Will give this one a bit to sink and then repost in GD.

I am so glad that people are supporting the video like that. Thanks.

Robert Reich is an excellent and reputable source, providing the Cliff Notes version for a quick insight into the facts.

7. KR Thanks for posting. This is critical, it's been 10 years since

the 2010 Census was used to mess with voting. Hopefully preparations and protections for 2020 are in place.

8. Thanks for your support.

Yes, I didn't know about the census aspect, actually. Robert Reich has filled in a lot of blanks for me even though I try to stay abreast of things.

Be sure to share that video and Reich's channel with others. He packs a lot in those short videos and people are busy, so they need a quick update if they don't have time to do the reading and research.

9. 2865075 is the call for revolt; it's past time for mass popular vote to win, period.

Exactly the number more citizens voted for Hillary than Drumph. The line is drawn here, no further. I want to hear no more arguments justifying this electoral college bullshit, the cheating has to stop. That's 2.1 percent of those able to vote in 2016's votes invalidated, 2865075 voter's voices silenced on top of those who were suppressed from ability to vote at all.

source: https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/politics/how-fair-is-the-electoral-college/


Yet beyond that, I'll hear no more of the MAGAt's claiming to be supporting honesty, integrity, moral superiority and responsibility as long as they continue to support a cabal that cheats to steal elections. When nearly 3 million voices raised on representation are effectively silenced, and potentially far more than that now in the 2020 race, it's time to re-examine the wisdom of our system and leave the cheating to Burundi, Estonia, Kazakhstan, Madagascar, Myanmar, Pakistan, Trinidad and Tobago and Vanuatu-style imbalanced power strangulation,
and for the U.S.A. to join the fair and equitable majority of the world, dammit.

Edited to take this one step further:
As long as republicans cheat, mesmerize the vulnerable into voting against their own interests via bullshit mountains of Fox Noise and Hate Radio, it's time for a bit cheating of our own.
Fox Noise's signal needs to be silenced, even if just for a day,
REPLACED by an entire day of Robert Reich's videos, and force some wisdom on all those damnable fools.

10. Totally agree.

We need to crush the noise of this evil anti-democratic oppression and give liberty a chance again.
