There is much to be done to restore our Democracy. I believe that it is imperative that we urge our representatives to fast track legislation in this Congress to close the loopholes in the voting processes that Trump exploited. Voting Rights is the first order of business, affirming early voting and vote by mail. We need to work onward an eventual end to Electoral College, even if it has to go the constitutional Amendment route.
We must use this horrifying wakeup call wisely. Yes, prosecute those guilty of invasion of the Capitol but we also must hold enablers accountable. It would be the height of irresponsibility to allow the Ted Cruzes to escape condemnation and assume a new populist mantle.
To accomplish anything in this Congress and presidency it must get underway in the first months.
We’ll be distracted by the pandemic, but cannot let it slow the work that needs to be done.
