Protect our democracy with your vote on Election Day

To the Editor:

When you go to vote Tuesday, Nov. 6, remember this grim truth: the Republican party is willing to trade our hard-won democracy for right-wing judges and tax breaks for the wealthy. GOP leaders are complicit in weakening long-standing democratic institutions and principles that tell us that a single individual’s gain, be it financial or legal, matters less than the well-being of the majority.

If you think the current administration has made your investments gain value, good for you. Keep in mind, however, if it is politically expedient and helps them hold onto power, Republicans have displayed their willingness to trade away your constitutional rights, reduce your Social Security, dilute regulations meant to protect you, ignore the ballooning federal deficit, and keep an unfit president in office with his finger on the nuclear button.
