The Lincoln Party: Country before politics.

That’s what they said when they launched their campaign to dislodge Trump from the White House. But now they’ve stepped up the mission with ads aimed at convincing voters.

We started this webpage before the coronavirus crisis crippled our country, and everything’s changed. Brutal failures in national leadership leave us dangling over a precipice, collapse is nearer than you think.

By supporting the Lincoln Project in defeating Trump, we have our one chance to reclaim out community of values.

We believe this video — Mourning In America — expresses our fears perfectly.

But the Lincoln Project About More Than Defeating Trump

The enablers must go too.

That’s how a determined band of Republicans, libertarians and conservatives define their mission.

“Patriotism and the survival of our nation in the face of the crimes, corruption and corrosive nature of Donald Trump are a higher calling than mere politics,” they said in New York Times editorial: We are Republicans, and we want Trump defeated.

Meanwhile, the Lincoln Project aims at defeati.ng more than Trump and Trumpism They also want to take down those who abandoned their oaths of office, regardless of party.

Shared fidelity, the Lincoln Project defeating Trump…

More importantly, they say, “Electing Democrats who support the Constitution over Republicans who do not is a worthy effort.”

“Our many policy differences with national Democrats remain,” they insist, “but our shared fidelity to the Constitution dictates a common effort.”
