Our Great Task

 May 1, 2024


The GOP has once again chosen Donald Trump, a man who betrayed our country by attempting to seize power by overturning an election. 

For the good of the nation and the Republic, he must be stopped. But make no mistake, if he has the chance, he’ll do it again.

I’ll explain more in a moment, but before I do, please consider chipping in $15 and show your support for Our Great Task and my effort to stop Donald Trump.

Rod, we know what Donald Trump is capable of because we've already seen it. 

Think about it. When Donald Trump woke up on the morning of January 6th, he was fully aware that he had lost the election. And yet he still thought he’d remain president after January 20th. 

It’s not hard to imagine another scenario in which he would try to delay the election (as he did during the pandemic) or lie, as he did after he lost, and say there was fraud so the election couldn’t go forward.

Donald Trump continues to use tactics of threat and attack to tear down our institutions.  He is using words he knows caused violence in the past to threaten members of congress and now members of the judiciary and their families.   And like all authoritarians, he cannot succeed alone.  He needs enablers, collaborators, appeasers.  He needs people who will spread his propaganda and who will threaten others on his behalf.  And he needs good people to look away, to let fear paralyze them into silence.  He needs enablers who will find rationalizations not to step up and stop him. 

And that's the most important thing to understand. Our system, our constitutional framework, depends on us all, especially our president, to defend it.

So, we're in real danger if we elect somebody like Donald Trump who won't.

Rod, the danger of a President who has already tried to steal a term is too great. We must not forget or downplay what he did — we must spend these next weeks and months working to ensure he never gets near the Oval Office again.

I’m ready to do my part, and I’d be grateful if you could show your support by contributing $27 or anything you can afford today.
