Can Texas turn blue in 2020? The writer thinks so and so do I.

Ted Cruz won his last election, but saw a 13 point margin drop from his first election to 2018. That's a 13 point pro-Democratic shift. Other seats flipped. #SundayThoughts #TurnTexasBlue 1/7…

Support and volunteer for @mjhegar - an amazing Democratic candidate running to replace John Cornyn in the U.S. Senate.

To paraphrase, "Texans deserve a Senator who represents their values: strength, courage, independence."
That's not Cornyn. #txlege 3/7

HERE WE GO AGAIN🤦🏽‍♂️With #RacistInChief, #RacistTrump & #RacistGOP all still trending, MAGAts are dragging out the tired old "Democrats are the party of slavery and Republicans freed them" line. They do it every time.

Here's why it doesn't work👇 [THREAD]
Go to any "racial" topic that trended over the last few weeks; Sweden, Reparations, Barack Obama Blvd, Nathan Bedford Forrest, Dinesh, etc, and scroll through the tweets and you'll find dozens & dozens, maybe even hundreds with a variation of 'DEMs are the party of slavery!' 2/
Those using the 'DEMs are the party of slavery/Republicans freed them' rationale to *remind* black Americans why they should be loyal to the GOP are either too ignorant to understand how the ideology of the two parties has evolved, or, they assume that black Americans are. 3/

Last Friday night as the world was lighting candles, I lit one too and put it in my yard. While doing so, I was encouraged to see that there were a few other candles in a dominantly Trump neighborhood where I had expected to see NO CANDLES and have NO support.
I assumed that the neighbor, Pete, a Trump would harass and ridicule me again for my little candle. I was prepared for that and more likely than not for the disappearance of my candle.
Since before Trump took office Pete and I have gone round and round. Signs have disappeared from my yard and I have been unable to step outside without some version of Trump rhetoric being spewed out for all to hear.

Trump's show, "Chaos," is pretty simple. The producers draw from only a couple buckets, over and over.

Bucket 1: Undermine rule of law and government as we know it. Use the courts. Stack the courts. Dismantle programs. Install foxes.


Bucket 2: Predation & greed.
DeVos, Acosta, Mnuchin, Sessions, Kavanaugh, Barr, Price, Carson, Pruitt are just a few of the foxes appointed as department heads for departments they should protect, but will undermine and dismantle. Acosta is only the most recent blatant example.
As soon as the spotlight starts revealing what's happening, they draw from

Bucket 3: Fear which includes terrorizing the vulnerable, attacking Democrats or calling on nationalistic/xenophobic definitions of "patriotism" & "christianity."

People are objects & caring is weak.

With Republicans refusing to protect our vote and with elections getting closer every day, we must add actions to our routines to protect Americans' votes from gerrymandering, suppression, and interference.

Trump on January 20, 2017, said, "Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for years to come."

What followed that has been two years of Trump's lies to the American people and his failure to hear their voices raised in protest.
After a campaign full of lies and empty promises to the American people, Trump began an unrelenting attack on our constitution and our established laws. He claimed he would be "transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People."
Yet the voice of the America MAJORITY has called out repeatedly the actions Trump has taken since he entered the office. The day after he took office millions of American women and men poured into the streets in protest.

The New York Times has compiled a list of the 84 environmental rules on their way out during your nightmare presidency.
Here are the ones that have been completed so far:
"1. Canceled a requirement for oil and gas companies to report methane emissions. (EPA)"
"2. Revised and partially repealed an Obama-era rule limiting methane emissions on public lands, including intentional venting and flaring from drilling operations.
(Interior Department)"
#ClimateChangeIsReal #ThursdayThoughts
"3. Loosened a Clinton-era rule designed to limit toxic emissions from major industrial polluters. (EPA)"

Trump talked a lot about how anti-Semitic Dems are, & not at all about how Netanyahu & his wife were recently indicted for bribery & fraud. Oh & GOP WILL be the "party of healthcare" #TrumpMustGo #VoteBlue #SundayMorning…
2-Trump also talked about the So Border 'crisis' and he said,
“I’ve taken a lot of heat from the stupid people,” Trump said. “What about building our own country for a change?” #SundayMorning
3-"Earlier in the day, the president on Twitter denounced special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian collusion as well as Democratic-led investigations into his administration. However, he notably avoided the topic while speaking to the Jewish Republicans." ~politico

Trump sure succeeded in changing the narrative from his perceived 'victory' with the Mueller rpt to gutting America's healthcare yest-if it's done by the courts, Trump'll be handing the Sen to Dems in 2020- Interesting. #WednesdayWisdom…
2- Trump also pulled his Obamacare reversal over the objections of his Cabinet members, including (it's said) AG Barr.. If this is Trump's idea of revenge he's severely misguided, it'll hurt his base as much as anyone! #WednesdayWisdom…
3-Speaker Pelosi gave us quite a pep-talk yesterday, in part saying, "we must, with all that is going on, stay focused on our purpose,”..She couldn't be more correct, and OUR purpose is #Election2020 and replacing Trump! #WednesdayWisdom #GOTV #VoteBlue…

I’m going to provide a thread on Dems who want to be President. I’m going to share a link to a site that shows their voting record. The proof is in the pudding- or the votes in this case. You decide who should get the nod. #ThursdayThoughts
In no particular order. Here we go. Why not start with our most recent entry into the Dem race.

Let's have a discussion about @realDonalTrump's recent battle cry, calling Democrats 'socialists.' Is it woeful ignorance or intentional obfuscation? The terms Marxism, #Socialism & Communism are often used interchangeably. They are not remotely the same.
2/ Let's examine different systems & look at some differences. There are varying forms of Marxist/Leninist Communism (RU), Socialism, Capitalism & mixed systems. Communist China has a mixed market economy, w/private or state sectors controlling certain entities such as media.
3/ France, Italy & other European countries use free market economies but also incorporate socialist programs such as Universal Healthcare & free education. The U.S. is a Capitalist mixed economy, which also includes socialistic programs such as ...

1/ Day 30 of Trump's shutdown: Gov't workers are suffering. Trump's winning by blaming Dems for not negotiating. BuzzFeed nailed Trump for directing Cohen in illegal acts. Then Mueller made his first mistake & now both have egg on their faces. Trump wins. Enough! Resisters Unite!

2/"We don’t know what’s going to happen in the election, but we’ve got a pretty good idea how it’s likely to be spun. With Republicans probably losing the House, they (and President Trump, in particular) have focused on the Senate. And if they hold it or even gain some seats, you
3/"can guarantee they’ll cite it as a win, and possibly even a split decision overall. This will be false. That pre-spinning has begun, with Kellyanne Conway noting last week that it’s rare for the president’s party to gain Senate seats in a midterm election. “Think about that.

‘Twas the night before the Election,
And just like a mouse,
The Republicans were scurrying,
“We’re losing the House!”
Melania was nestled,
All snug in her bed,
While visions of “someone else”...
Danced in her head.

And Trump in his suit,
And his ill-fitting tie,
Had just settled down,
To tweet some more lies.
When out on the Front Lawn,
Arose such a clutter,
Trump sprang from the bed,
“Oh shit! Is it Mueller??”
When, what to Trump’s
Wondering eyes couldn’t miss,
Trump knew in a moment
It must be St. Nick,
“Look at those hands!
He’s got a huge dick!”
