This crisis requires more than a standard political or legal response. We should all understand that we're now in a pre-coup d'état situation. Mobilizing resistance to dictatorship and #fascism is what's required. The alternative is to become the frog slowly being boiled alive! https://t.co/0ZhXRKf6jc

What American business would EVER think of replacing high-effiiciency machines with human labor in a cost-cutting move?

Better wake up people, we are witnessing a coup d'etat in the making, and Trump and his goons are OUTRAGEOUSLY BRAZEN and think they can only win by CHEATING. Look at the lengths they are going to.

This is becoming a life and death situation. Voting at the polls OVERWHELMINGLY is NOW worth risking your life for DEMOCRACY!
