Back in the 1980s, when many of us were kids, it was easy to know who the good guys and bad guys were. Americans? Good. Russia? Bad. Or to coin the phrase of Ronald Reagan, Russia was “The Evil Empire”.
Today, it seems we have woken up in an alternative universe. Republicans (Republicans!?!) are saying that Russian interference into the election wasn’t that big a deal. The “real” issue is that people are leaking information about all the alleged relationships between Moscow and Trump associates.
Don’t get us wrong, leaking confidential information isn’t right and should be dealt with, but isn’t that kind of like shooting the messenger? Let’s first find out what, if anything, is going on between Team Trump and Vladimir Putin.
March On Texas strongly believes we really need an independent investigation to a) figure out if the Russians worked with anyone from Trump’s team to meddle with our election and b) if it did happen, make sure it doesn’t happen again.
Because this isn’t about Hillary Clinton losing the presidency. This is about our long-time enemy messing with our democracy and possibly American citizens helping them! This is something that should absolutely horrify all Americans.
