A plea to those who still believe there is a way to "reach across the aisle" and "find common

ground" with people who insist Trump is their POTUS: the liars on other side of the aisle are sharpening their swords and loading their guns and they are not just "thinking about" the destruction of our democracy, they are actively making plans to do just that.

If we are not prepared to "fight fire with fire", we will not be treated kindly by history because that history will be written by the likes of Greene and Gaetz and Jordan.

I will not "go gentle into that good night".

1. POS McCarthy sent out fundraising text IMMEDIATELY after meeting

with Pres. Biden yesterday, and called him "corrupt".

K&R.

Thank you for speaking what strikes me as on many if not most or even all of our minds here at DU.

3. Not just making plans, they are acting on those plans right now.

We need to focus on HR1, yes to the exclusion of other issues if resources are limited.

Any progress we might make in the next few years will immediately be stomped out by the facists in 2024 if HR1 is not passed thru the senate. And we will not get another chance.

11. I agree,

Republicans have to intention of voting for an infrastructure bill, or any bill. They are playing the delay, delay until the election game.

I hope that Democrats realize this.

HR1 is the House bill that already passed, Dems need to pull out all the stops to some way get it passed in the Senate.

I agree about how serious this is. I believe that if we can't get the For The People's Act passed we will lose our democracy.

4. It's not just Republicans we seem to always have

Democrats that won't cooperate. Then in the mid terms we
get voted out because we never delivered.
Like Liz Cheney she will bluster and complain but in
the end she will fall in line. That's what Republicans do.
We always have our Manchins.

6. Looking at Joe Manchin.

I'm not sure he's "reaching" across the aisle; rather, moving over.

7. This also applies to the people who keep voting for them

We need to leave them to themselves and focus on building our base with the people who have earned our attention.

8. Not Going To Happen Anytime Soon

What is amazing is all those Republicans so loyal to a “Man” who would throw any of them under the bus and laugh about it. Trump cares about nobody, it’s a one way Street.

9. There is no one who believes that.

Biden and other Dem Senators SAY that, because they need to be seen making the effort, if only to persuade Manchin and Sinema.

America = Fucked.
