In times of crisis, we look to our political leaders for guidance, comfort, support, and most of all, leadership. Given the multiple crises that the United States is currently experiencing, it should be a no brainer for those in the halls of power. But, as anyone who is reading or watching the news lately can tell you, the lack of national leadership from the top is not as forthcoming as we need and expect it to be.
Which is why we need to remind those in the power that we, the citizens, are the bosses. Not the other way around.
Enter Sarah Cooper and the Lincoln Project.
Sarah Cooper is a comedian and author whose recent video’s of lip-syncing you know who’s comment has gained national attention.
The Lincoln Project is, I think a perfect representation of the times we live in. Run by a group of prominent Republicans (one of whom is George Conway, husband of Presidential mouthpiece Kellyanne Conway) their goal is to ensure that you know who does not win the election in November.
As Americans, we have a proud history (even with all of it’s flaws) of being a free people who stand by the ideals that are the cornerstone of this nation. If we do not speak up and vote in November, the country that we proclaim ourselves to be may no longer exist.
