This Election in a Nutshell

Rogue elements of the FBI are conspiring with Russian spies and the Ku Klux Klan to elect a neo-fascist white nationalist to the American presidency.

As a screenplay you would want Denzel Washington playing the fearless reporter for the New York Times risking his life to uncover this bizarre plot. But this is real life. There are no heroic figures coming to save us.

We have to do this ourselves. At the voting booth. Failure means we can say goodbye to such quaint notions as peace, economic security, equality under the law and say hello to war in Europe as Russia invades the NATO Baltic states, an economic depression that will follow massive import tariffs, and mass deportations unseen in the world since WWII.
