  • That their greed and lust for power is killing people at home and around the world, accelerating catastrophic climate change, and making this country’s longstanding regional, economic, ethnic and social divisions terrifyingly worse.
  • That what goes on in Washington between our two nominal political parties is but a crummy community theater production performed by a venal, sad, craven group of puppets.
