We Must Unify to Prevent an Authoritarian Takeover

WASHINGTON, Feb. 28, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — In eight months, voters will select the next president. Recent polls indicate a greatly diminished Joe Biden candidacy and a high likelihood of a Trump victory. Many experts see a high risk of an authoritarian takeover by the Trump-led MAGA Movement. To respond to this crisis, #unifyUSA and Landslide PAC are catalyzing a new movement to call for an Open Democratic Convention that can choose a stronger candidate than Biden. The organizers are calling on President Biden to step down from the 2024 Democratic nomination process urgently and gracefully and support an Open Convention—one that includes all would-be Democratic front-runners and other strong candidates who are currently running 3rd party campaigns.

Dr. Paul Zeitz, Founder of #unifyUSA says: 

“At key moments of peril in U.S. history, Open Conventions have delivered extraordinary candidates who went on to win historic victories and lead great presidencies.  On the cusp of the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln was surprisingly nominated by an Open Convention in 1860. In 1932, during the Great Depression, an Open Convention nominated Franklin D. Roosevelt, who went on to win a landslide victory.  An Open Convention in 2024 is the best option to prevent an authoritarian takeover by establishing a democratic experience that allows candidates to participate in live-broadcast debates and speeches.”
