We have to look into reasons behind supposed low voter turnout or we're just spinning our wheels.

Major Democratic leaders can point out the disenfranchisement on TV for example.
One huge example? What if ...

🗣Texas is blue/purple
🗣Has been so for 2 or more decades
🗣Is a test ground for more types of cheating than gerrymandering?

This *may* not be true. I haven't deeply studied this outside the two areas I've lived in this state.
But this needs investigating, at the least. That's the reason for this thread, and my last "voting isn't the only answer" thread.

Let's talk about @Greg_Palast and his left liberal biased 'purge list' hysteria & why he's focusing only on sharing it only w/liberal democrat voters.

1) Votes by republicans & Libertarian votes also can & have been cancelled (Spoilt).

Greg fails to mention, reasons cancelled (spoilt) votes, happen. Reporting a cancelled vote (as republican / independent/Libertarian) to Greg means, he'll pretend it's a Democrat vote.

“I think what we are seeing is a hostile standoff between the Trump/Q team and the deep state... I have no idea what kind of hellish things the deep state has in their back pocket.” #Hillary #Obama #BlueWave #RedWave #RedWhiteBlueWave #QAnon #WWG1WGA #MAGA #GreatAwakening
i heard the situation in SA with the murder of the washington post journalist is a sick plan of the deep state to put POTUS in a trap and start war between turkey and saudis
“And who has the most to gain from it? Iran. If the Iranians are using Republican operatives paid through Qatari cut outs the Iran's would be a part of an op like this” —-quoted from a friend

#WhyIWillVoteDemocrat in 24 days and So should you:

I am autistic, and back in the late 1980s and 1990s and Von before that, people with special needs both physically and mentally, were not given much of a future. The only places that we were told to be put away because
society didn't give us much of a future, were institutions or if we were lucky, group homes. My mom refused to see that happen. She raised me in a community where they were taught to accept me as who I was, a regular human being regardless
It was through that community and the support of many people including teachers who cared, and others, that made me the person I am today to help strive forward 4 rights for all people and not just for people with special needs, but for the LGBT community, women including

Shorter Kanye: If this guy rants and can be president, me too, man
So much narcissism & nonsense in one room. But it wasn’t quite Clash of the Titan Narcissists. Trump was so low-key, almost dragging as manic Kanye ranted, among other things, about editing MAGA down to MAG b/c “black people have a problem with again.” And of course new hats💰🧢
Imagine if Obama had put on a show with Kanye in WH the day after a disaster. And it's not like Republicans admit they were too hard before. No, it's pure hypocrisy, lowering the bar for themselves. The coming #BlueWave🌊will begin to lift us out of this pit. We win when we vote.

1. I am one of a majority of women in America. Yes, I am angry. And disgusted. And fearful over the direction of our country. But, I am far from powerless and with my sisters I make this pledge:
2. I am not ok with cruelly caging children, tearing them from their parents with no plan for reunification. I am not ok with creating orphans as a matter of government policy. I refuse to accept traumatizing children as an act of deterrence against immigration.
3. I am not ok with sitting by in denial while our planet faces certain peril and our children face uncertain futures for small economic gains from blind deregulation. We should be leading the world in our quest to stop climate change and protecting our precarious environment.

2) Going into the game the Democrats were riding their #BlueWave of enthusiasm. They were so confident America was tired of all the lies and sordid behavior of Coach Trump that the Democrats could win the game easily.
3) They laughed at their good fortune every time a GOP player would pledge to work closely with their coach; such easy pickings.

A group of self-appointed ideological policemen have petitioned @PostOpinions to quit identifying opinion writer @JRubinBlogger as a conservative. This is a teachable moment, so let’s dig in to this to make some larger and more important points. <THREAD> dailywire.com/news/36687/con…
1/ Consider the list of indictments they’ve offered. How in the hell does a commitment to limited government, free enterprise, and a robust national defense (the core commitments of modern conservatism) inform how she or anyone else should think about ...
2/ ... Trump’s misogyny, the Ford-Kavanaugh accusations, our declining standing in the world (being laughed at around the world, after all, is something Donald Trump repeatedly thundered about when HE was running for president), or Republican electoral fortunes going forward?

1/ In designing our Government, our founders did everything they could to prevent 1-Party control. 1-Party control of our Government is not compatible with our Constitution.

1/ TIL that suspended users can still access their archives. And you can post said archives on the internet for the world to see. So, let's talk about @thomaswictor ronfor37.org/wictor/index.h…
2/ First keep in mind his tweets are voluminous, and the archive algorithm is nowhere near Twitter's production site. So have patience, his tweets will show up.
3/ Second, my site ronfor37.org is officially archived by the Library of Congress as a campaign site. So I'm happy to have Wictor's tweets be preserved for posterity as part of the site.

My last tweet for the night. I am going to take time to explain how I was conned in voting for Trump, as well as thanking those that guided me through this journey. As I recently said, I feel focused, determined, and accepted what is really right and real compared to "fake news."
As a conservative, the agenda is simple, it's about you and your own rights and what you think is right for the country. My rights i.e. the 2nd amendment which is really misinterpreted by conservatives thinking liberals want to take all guns, and they think it's a right for any,
and I mean any American has the right to own any weapon, even if the weapon was originally meant for combat. Many conservatives feel that "illegal aliens" are invading America under the gang of MS 13. Which I've later found out it's a gang started in the U.S. most immigrants are

We can impeach Supreme Court Justices. If we control both houses of Congress.

✅Criminal behavior,
✅perjury,
✅not understanding that birth control isn't abortion?

All great reasons.
So.

Backup plan as usual is VOTE.

Verify you can vote, vote, volunteer to get out the vote, get friends & family to vote. #gotv #BlueWave
I believe we'd need 67 Senators to convict.

More than we’ve got unless we flip in addition to holding. Then we’d only be one short.

Titan of Kansas Republican politics shunning Kris Kobach, her party’s nominee for governor.
Nancy Kassebaum, Kansas 3 term senator, will support Democrat @SenatorKelly campaign.
Kassebaum joins former GOP Governor Bill Graves, who supports Kelly.

“I’m a Republican, but that doesn’t mean you walk lock step always with the party.
It seems to me that Kobach has developed a record that shows focus on ways & how to accomplish his end goals that I think aren't the best for Kansas.”

—Kassebaum
Kassebaum has deep ties to the Kansas GOP.
Her father, Alf Landon, was a Republican governor of the state who famously failed in his effort to beat President Franklin Delano Roosevelt during Great Depression-era presidential election.
She remained active since leaving Senate.

I have not done a state room thread recently and we are less than two months out from mid terms so I am going to do one because our #FlipItBlue candidates need all hands on deck.
State rooms are chat rooms where the resistance work together to help amplify candidates and issues. Some rooms are single state rooms and some are multi state rooms. The main goal in all of them is to showcase candidates and #GOTV
I’ll list state & the account to contact for state. Some states have multiple rooms. Those will be listed twice. Some have multiple contacts listed together. If interested send dm. If not able to because of no mutual follow my DM’s are open send me one & I will pass message on.

Here's the thing: if the Republicans invoke the 25th Amendment against Trump, they might never win an election again. And they know it. And it terrifies them.
Trump won the election with help from white supremacists and other assorted garbage people. That's not his ENTIRE base, mind you - the rest were mostly lifelong Republicans deadset against letting Hillary win - but I do believe the deplorables are what put Trump over the top.
Garbage people who otherwise never would've voted were the difference between Trump succeeding and Romney failing. And Trump can still travel to Bumfuck Nowhere and fill stadiums full of these fucking people.

Scott Dworkin: It's almost a certainty that Mueller will try Manafort for the ten charges that ended in a hung jury in the previous trial.

Scott Dworkin: Manafort can't push back much; he's really disadvantaged at this point. He'd have to give up something absolutely crazy or he'll be in prison for the rest of his life.
