The first debate of Election 2020 is in the bag, or at least the first day and the first 10 are. So, who “won” from the first ten? How do we know?
It’s another American presidential election, which started more than 18 months before the actual election! American politics are crazy. But, the Dems are debating tonight and we all wanna know who won, who zung, who clung, who hung. I’ll be live-blogging the debate as it is live-streamed in Paris at 3:00 AM. Join me here for a snarky, sarcasticky, profaney good time as we all watch together!
With so many desperate issues swirling in the ether, air waves, and news cycle, I thought it useful to create a post with information on contacting your folks in Congress , so you can do your civic duty.
With so much at stake — literally the survival of our democracy — in the 2020 election, who will be the Dem candidate? Who will be the best candidate? How will the debates affect the race? I go over the criteria I’ll use to evaluate the first debate winner in the run up to live-blogging the live-streaming of the debates.
Our democracy is being gutted right before our very eyes. Every day there is a fresh new attack upon our sensibilities, democratic institutions, traditions, norms. Everyday there is a new government representative trying to present the unreasonable as reasonable, the irrational as rational, the untrue as truth, the immoral as moral. To keep a democracy, we have to be informed. That is the Great Civics Lesson
How do we resist the assault on our democracy? How do we prevent the further erosion of our democratic institutions and ideals? It is clear that the fascification of America is continuing unabated, so how do we resist? We use our democratic institutions to roll-back the spreading fascism.
