History/Hitler’s Rise to Power in the 1920’s
I can’t help noticing the similarities between Trumps rise to power and Hitler’s. Hitler , too , was discounted as a leader. Jail for him was a blessing. He was treated like royalty in prison & wrote Mein Kamph, his autobiographical manifesto, outlining his ideological plans for Germany.
Trump isn’t idle these days, nor is the Heritage Foundation or TrumpsGOP. They’re writing Voter Suppression Laws in 43 states. They’re taking away unemployment benefits and continuing to perpetuate Trumps lies:

We need guardrails around our Democracy
We need a strong Democracy to negate tampering with our vote. The Senate must pass S1, HR1 & HR4 have already passed the House.
We need a Social Safety Net
The For the Families Act is now in the Senate. It can’t be passed fast enough. This bill will lift 50% of our kids out of Poverty and allows women to return to the work force relying on inexpensive childcare & pre K for their kids.
Next, the House must pass the Infrastructure Bill giving us good jobs and infrastructure projects. We need universal WIFI connectivity, transportation, education, a green future, clean water and air. Imagine breathing without pollution. Imagine less weather extremes.
Additionally, we need to codify a $15 hr minimum wage. Change the NLRB allowing employees to Organize without Corporate interference and give the DACA kids a path to citizenship. The Democrats must realize there is no one to negotiate with and pursue Democracy, equal opportunity, voting rights on their own.
Punish Hate Crimes in our Society
Why hate others in the Lower & Middle Classes; they’re not taking your jobs? Your jobs disappeared legitimately, with Changes in the Corporate Tax Law. It’s time to close those tax loopholes and bring good jobs to Americans at decent wages.
Lots to do to make our lives better. We need a Social Safety Net.
We also need to stop our denial of the facts surrounding Trumps rise to the Presidency and his cult of Congressional followers. We need a committee to totally investigate the Storming of our Capitol and make recommendations for the Preservation of our Democracy.
Democracy isn’t perfect, but it’s the best system of Government that exists.
Government is the Solution, not the problem!
The heart ad pulse of “We the People”.
