Husband/father with faith that democracy is the way to go; still idealistic enough to believe it's achievable. The only thing I'm selling is democracy. Banned (3x!) by the fowl site for calling out GOP lies. Migrated from https://mstdn.party/@DemocracyMatters.

The United States may have never held a presidential election in which the voting public was so badly misinformed. We can blame biased news media, scammers on social media, foreign interference, and politicians who intentionally mislead us. But ultimately, voters must learn to separate fact from falsehood.

Will misinformation decide the 2024 presidential election? https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/4685012-misinformation-2024-presidential-election/

Drawing on decades of research and a wide range of historical and global examples, from 1930s Europe to contemporary Hungary, Turkey, and Venezuela, to the American South during Jim Crow, Levitsky and Ziblatt show how democracies die—and how ours can be saved.

May 26, 2020 – Trump continued to spread a conspiracy theory that Joe Scarborough had committed murder, this time at a press conference in the Rose Garden. Florida police had ruled there was no sign of foul play in the 2001 death of Lori Klausutis, who died when hitting her head in a fall after a heart attack. However, Trump said, “It’s certainly a very suspicious situation. Very sad, very sad and very suspicious.”

Trump has also tried to reportedly kick Libertarians out of their own convention and fill the ballroom with MAGA supporters, which is extremely on-brand for Donald Trump.

Donald Trump tries to rig everything, so of course, he tried to rig the crowd at the Libertarian Convention in his favor.

“If the voters put [Trump] back in power after the Jan. 6 insurrection, we are unlikely to keep the republic. If voters cannot be bothered to show up and choose the only candidate
who has pledged to abide by the Constitution from day one (and never to "suspend" it), then our democracy is doomed. But we can get it right this time, as we did in 2020.”
— Jennifer Rubin, The Washington Post
