Randi Rhodes Newsletter for Thursday May 20th 2021

The extremists that have seized control of the Republican Party are so out of step with the mainstream that if we could stop feuding over wedge issues and quibbling over labels, there is real hope that millions of Americans will stop voting against their own best interests and instead unite to force our government to serve the majority versus the super-wealthy minority and anti-worker corporate interests.
