If We Don’t Have Democracy, What The Hell Do We Have?
Is the 2020 election already stolen? Can we steal it back? (Yes and hell yes!) Why were 17 million Americans purged from the voter rolls between 2014 and 2016? And why aren’t our elected officials screaming to high heaven about all these vanished voters? What’s a provisional ballot? What’s a residual vote? Do we have a functioning democracy? And should we be more worried about Russians or Republicans stealing our vote? Investigative journalist Greg Palast and comedian Lee Camp answer all these questions and more in this conversation, first broadcast on Facebook LIVE to launch Palast’s new book, How Trump Stole 2020, which serves as a warning and a roadmap for how we can steal our democracy back!
