Republicans, who are on the losing side of nearly every political equation, would be completely disempowered if Democrats decided they didn't matter.

The GOP is demolishing our guardrails and doing all they can to end democracy as we know it—and eventually, they'll succeed. And those of us on the margins stand to lose everything.
The GOP's opposition to preventative measures, like mask-wearing and vaccines, didn't begin with COVID. Ten years ago, they weaponized another vaccine in a bid for the Republican presidential nomination, and recast themselves as the Death Cult Party.
