“The only sure bulwark of continuing liberty is … a people strong enough and well enough informed to maintain its sovereign control over the government.” — Franklin D. Roosevelt
Facts still matter. Despite bizarre but obvious lies coming directly from the mouths of our President, the White House Press Secretary, countless staffers, spokespeople and others, facts matter.
Fast talking, spin, and deception distract us from the actual legislation being implemented. When harmful laws get passed right before the eyes of an ill-informed public, only those in power are likely to benefit. We all need to double our efforts to understand how we allow our county, state and country to be governed. If we don’t pay attention, then we’ll get the government we deserve.
To help you stay informed, we’ll work to provide information that is pertinent to improving our government to work for the most benefit for most of the people. Frankly, that’s what the Democratic Party has always tried to do, but we need to speak louder while listening more intently.
Please, be in the conversation and stay informed.
