The 2024 election promises to be a watershed year for preserving our democratic republic.
Incisive column by Thomas B. Edsall, quoting experts, including former AFL-CIO political director Michael Podhorzer, who was my boss at the Consumer Federation of America in 1978, working on a report for the Congressional Office of Technology Assessment on the effects of higher energy prices on poor people.
To the three (3) local Republicans who urged me to change my party registration and run for St. Johns County Commissioner as a Republican, NOPE!
In ordinary times, I might have been flattered, but Commissioner Krista Keating-Joseph, Nicole Crosby and Marty Miller, I say NOPE!
As RFK said in 1968, "these are not ordinary times and this is no ordinary election."
Our Nation's democratic republican form of government must be preserved and protected, thank you.
