18 STEPS TO LOSING DEMOCRACY
Believe it or not, there are many Americans who prefer fascism to democracy. Yet here we are.
We encourage you to check outthis excellent Washington Post article listing the 18 steps needed to destroy our democracy. Some of them are already underway. This is why Indivisibles and thousands, if not millions, of Americans are working so hard to defend our country from this insidious insurrection.
"Democracy is most likely to break down through a series of incremental actions that cumulatively undermine the electoral process, resulting in a presidential election that produces an outcome clearly at odds with the voters’ will. It is this comparatively quiet but steady subversion, rather than a violent coup or insurrection against a sitting president, that Americans today have to fear most." -- Risa Brooks and Erica De Bruin, "18 Steps to a Democratic Breakdown,"Washington Post, December 10, 2021

It’s harder to see when the right wing machine is so loud, but trust is built personally, not by mass media."
Help share the truth about inflation, vaccines, reproductive rights, and other important issues. Find out more about the exciting and effective Truth Brigade campaigns here.
