Defend Our Democracy™
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” – Edmund Burke
Defend Our Democracy™ provides news, information and resources to those opposed to Trump and his administration. All of us sat back and watched as Trump and his alt-right backers used fear, prejudice and “alternative facts” to take control of the White House. We can’t sit back any longer. It’s our country, and we must stand up and fight for our democracy or risk losing it.
Our mission is to make America the beacon of the world by mobilizing the brightest minds and forward thinkers of our time to deal with our most pressing problems. We must come up with actual solutions to healthcare, climate change, money in politics, job creation, public education and other critical issues. It’s not enough to scrap existing programs, while ignoring the impact on millions of hardworking Americans.
It’s time to rethink our government’s role in society, recruit leaders (not followers), and harness the immense talent of the American people to set our country on the right path. Most of all, we need to believe in ourselves and our political system again.
It’s our democracy. If we don’t take action, nobody will. We have the opportunity to change our direction, our government and our lives. This is our chance to have America lead the world forward, set a new direction, and restore hope in our nation and our future.
