The Lincoln Project

Republicans Working to Defeat Trump’s Re-election

The members of the Lincoln Project are Republicans against Donald Trump gaining a second term in office. The Project makes and distributes political ads that call Trump out on his deceit, lies, and deceptions. They describe themselves as such:

Today, we find ourselves divided again – sectionalism in the country and factionalism in government has led to ever uglier examples of how our political system is failing. President Donald Trump and those who sign onto Trumpism are a clear and present danger to the Constitution and our Republic. Only defeating so polarizing a character as Trump will allow the country to heal its political and psychological wounds and allow for a new, better path forward for all Americans.

They do seem to have their arrows hit the mark when President Trump starts a tweet storm, railing against the Lincoln Project. One of the founders is George Conway, husband of Kellyanne Conway, an advisor to President Trump. Bet that leads to a lot of silent dinners at home.

Here’s one of their political ads. Give it a watch.

The Lincoln Project (June 24, 2020)

I tend to like their ads. They do not fear Donald Trump or his sycophants. Bear in mind that the Lincoln Project still stands in opposition to the Democrat Party. Their stance is just to remove Trump and send him packing home to New York, or is it Florida? He can’t make up his mind.

There has been enough of his divisiveness, his failure to be a leader. His character is that of a pathological liar and a narcissist. There is a strong movement in the United States for ending racism against Black people, providing them the complete equality they have fought for since they gained freedom from slavery in 1865. Trump sees the BLM as thugs and terrorists.

There also is a strong demand to defund or disband the police in the country. Now, those two words are being used to scare America into believing there will be no police in the US. That is not true. But, there will be a new policing paradigm that removes the over militarized paramilitary police we now have. The police are no longer here to protect and serve the citizens. Instead they are protecting the government, the corporate class, and the ruling class in the nation.

As a country we need to change priorities to improving education, finding the healthcare system that will cover ALL Americans and any non-citizens in the US (both legal and “illegal”) – even if that means some type of national health service, we must build a strong and stable economy that isn’t controlled by corporations or billionaires. We must remove the social security system, replacing it with retirement systems controlled by each individual in the workforce, their retirement should be their responsibility.

There is much more to reform as well. I will explore these topics more in the future.

Until next time
