1/ My Personal Thank You to Donald J. Trump...

Human beings are tribal.

We define ourselves relative to our affiliations, our social networks, our tribes.

Our nationality. Our religion. Our ethnicity. Our school. Our political affiliation. Our profession. Our sports teams...
2/ The neighborhood we were born in. The city we were born in. All are tribes of one sort or another.

With our tribal behavior comes certain prejudices, certain judgements that we render against those of a different tribe.

I've had them my whole life. ..
3/ We all have them, to one degree or another, whether or not we admit it to ourselves.

It's in recognition of that fact that I have to personally thank Donald J. Trump for freeing me of those prejudices, those judgements...

Graham was once one of Trump’s sharpest critics (“I think he’s a kook,” in 2016), and is now one of his staunchest supporters, whether it comes to supporting his Supreme Court pick, or his golf game (“Anyone who says he’s not a great golfer, that’s fake news,” he said).(WaPo)
Sen. Lindsey Graham advises President Donald Trump to “stick to his guns” in the fight over funding for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border and warned that giving in to Democrats' demands could be "the end of his presidency." (USAToday)

@FiveThirtyEight which tracks congressional votes, reported that as of October 2018 Sen Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) had voted with Trump's position 100% of the time. #GOPComplicit #GOPFail #DemSenate2020

(1/21) The 2017-18 @HouseGOP had plenty of indictments, #GOPCorruption, and ethical breaches (see my 21-tweet-thread: ). Now meet House GOP freshmen being sworn in on 1/3/19. With their baggage, they'll fit right in.

(2/21) Ross Spano @RossSpano #FL15
In a clear violation of @FEC campaign finance regs, Spano funded his campaign with large, unreported loans from personal friends. Given the amt & his relatively narrow win margin, it's shocking he is even being seated. (tampabay.com/florida-politi…)
(3/21) Anthony Gonzalez @anthonygonzalez #OH16
In another flouting of @FEC regulations, Gonzalez faced scrutiny for apparently (and illegally) colluding with a supportive Super PAC that was funded solely by - wait for it - Gonzalez's father! (washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/christ…)

My father was part of the greatest generation. He was 17. A Marine. He only knew he was poor and needed the money. He learned later how important his service was. He taught me how dangerous fascism is. We must fight for freedom.

@GOP The “verdict of democracy” can never be authoritarianism, whether fascism-lite, statist autocracy or some variant, w/ blends of kakistocracy & kleptocracy.

GOP is responsible for the rise of autocracy (allowing Trump to be nominated) & complicit in it’s continuance (passivity).
@GOP The #NeverTrump movement, #realcons refusing to allow 🇺🇸 to slip into dictatorship is just as real.

By caricaturizing some Americans’ dissent & “resistance” as unhealthy or antithetical to democracy, you’ve become an enemy to democracy,

& you’ve become complicit in 🇺🇸 decay
@GOP And 🇺🇸 WILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU for allowing democratic institutions to decay & unravel

Rubio has an A+ rating, & has taken $3.3 million from the NRA. He is just one of many R’s (Cruz) who are handmaidens to the gun lobby. The safety of the public is not as important as their #NRABloodMoney.

Let’s dispel gun myths the NRA constantly parrots. tampabay.com/florida-politi…
“Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.”
This is probably the most common argument heard from gun advocates. It’s true that guns can’t kill by themselves & DO indeed need someone to pull the trigger... Guns don’t kill people, but allow someone who WOULD kill much easier, faster, more lethal means for killing. #GunReform

I saw George Takei speak last night about his life and career.
A life that has seen Japanese internment camps, the violence that accompanied the civil rights era, the struggle for LGBT recognition and basic dignities.
And a career that saw him offered roles as humiliating stereotypes and having to keep his most important relationships a secret to protect it.

Thread: Nothing can or will be done to trump until we can elect a dem congress. Until (and if, thank you cheating republicans) we can do that, IGNORE the distractions of his twitter rants and BS. The biggest reason the GOP is not doing anything to stop him is because he is a
perfect distraction for the people. While our eyes are on him, we aren't seeing what's going on behind the scenes and in our own states. The Koch brothers are pushing for a convention of states. They did a great job of getting their bought and paid for GOP congress to pass the
worst piece of legislation they could have in the tax scam bill, so don't think their reach cannot accomplish getting an Article V convention. They are pushing this as a Balanced Budget necessity, but that is just the beginning. If a runaway convention occurs, they can and WILL
