Independence Day is an opportunity to show our pride in being Americans. That pride has been shaken by the actions of the Trump Administration, but that makes it all the more important that we show people that Trump does not speak for us. We, and our country, are better than that. Join us in showing that we believe in the values America stands for, not the warped version of those values represented by Donald Trump, Bruce Rauner, and Peter Roskam.
If anyone tells you that both parties are at fault, tell them what John McCain's campaign manager, Steve Schmidt, said this week:
- "Today the GOP has become a danger to our democracy and values. This Independent voter will be aligned with the only party left in America that stands for what is right and decent and remains fidelitous to our Republic, objective truth, the rule of law and our Allies. That party is the Democratic Party."
I'm proud of our party. I'm proud of our candidates, like J.B. Pritzker, Raja Krishnamoorthi, Sean Casten, Ann Gillespie, and Maggie Trevor. And I'm proud of the values our country stands for. Come show that you are, too.
