Its not GOP vs Dems anymore. It's between those that believe in Democracy, and the Fascist Nationalist that don't. Well well.

The Lincoln Project socially moderate to liberal, fiscally conservative people with a strong (and respectable) intellectual bent.

If they had to be classified in today's terms, they'd probably be blue dog Democrats. Maybe even to the left of that on some issues.

They are so effective that I'm almost fearful of them bringing those hard-hitting moves back to bear on us as the Trump thing fades and they can return to their nominal status as "noble opposition" to Dems.

I'm love/hate with Lincoln Project actors. I love wat they're doing to Trump and Trumpers, but I hate the fact that they support a party and political orientation that is oppressive and backward thinking (even though they aren't backward thinking in today's environment).

If the thugs get power again, democracy will struggle to continue.

Crushing them is the only way, I am glad these guys are fighting for democracy.

voted to overturn a democratic election when there was little chance of success.

But if they could have succeeded - bump that up to more than 2/3rds.

On another thread, there’s a discussion about the Lincoln Party being explored as a political party. When I first saw this earlier today, I wondered what it meant by “join us”

they have adopted the name from the protestors in Hong Kong - and regard the situation in the United States as just as serious.

Fighting for Democracy itself, not just politics - it is going to take years to rid ourselves of Trumpism, or it's autocratic spawn.

Glad to have them lead the way.

I never thought I'd see the day this could become reality in Our Country.

Now I think we may never see the return to political normalcy in my lifetime. (mid 60's).
