It's a tale of dysfunction, gerrymandering, corporate interests & anemic voter turnout
In the White House, for the 2nd time in 2 decades, sits a president who didn't win the popular vote. That's thanks to a dysfunctional, partisan electoral college that no longer functions the way the founders intended.
The Senate, in some ways, cements white minority rule.
Many experts believe this was due to a toxic mix of voter suppression & racial and partisan gerrymandering.
Because despite the rhetoric of a "leftist mob rule," American politics does not suffer from an excess of majority rule. It suffers from an excess of minority rule.
There's only one way to fix it.
Our voter turnout in a Presidential election hovers around 60%.
Midterm elections it falls to 40%.
On November 6th, show up in numbers too big to ignore.
In America, voters don't pick their politicians.
Politicians pick their voters.
And that's not a democracy
GOP rule is minority rule
And it's time to end their reign
