@RedTRaccoon Here’s a good place to begin.

I hope everyone will take time to read or view Jeff Sharlet’s book “The Family” asap. It’s urgent!

Watch his video from “Democracy in Chains” author, Nancy MacLean too.

The Koch agenda is happening now.

@RedTRaccoon We can’t wait & hope for impeachment or elections alone to solve our Koch RW problem.

NOW is the time to work & plan for the "if". That means having a plan. We don't have to agree on anything beyond opposing a Fascist RW takeover that endangers us all.

@ezraklein Today's GOP is NOT a political party, but an arm of the Kochs & RW. They are busy cementing their power behind trump's antics & impeachment. PLEASE...it's time to set aside the commentary & jokes. WE MUST ACT as quickly as possible to inform & engage our communities..

@brianstelter @sheree_bouchard Step out of the “trump/GOP“ cycle and toward the solution(s). We’re bombarded daily with breaking news, outrageous antics, lawlessness, propaganda & chaos. It’s intentional.

The professional politicians have done an excellent job of splitting up the issues to keep the citizens fighting with each other so we don’t focus on the fact that they are the problem, not us.
The professional wrestling promoters know that good fighting evil and prompting the audience to be involved in the action will keep people engaged. Our career politicians know it, too.

Without a crisis to engage the public, the career politician is less significant.

#TermLimits
#ManufacturedCrisis are common in politics - They provide another more sinister advantage to the professional politician: misdirection and sleight of hand.

Both sides do it

They do it because there are no #TermLimits

#WeThePeople can put an end to it

📢 #HAWAII 🔥

I'm Yelling from Canada

CAN YOU HEAR ME?

Something REALLY Hinky is going on in your legislature

You've got Dems who are PUSHING DANGEROUS #ConCon Legislation that other states are WISELY dropping like Hot Potatoes

Look at this Committee Report ‼️
#NoConCon
Link to #HI Senate Judiciary Committee Report on resolution #SCR131
capitol.hawaii.gov/session2019/Co…

🚨It was adopted despite opposition from 16 Orgs; including @ACLU, @CommonCause @IndivisibleHI AND testimony of a HI Attorney General

Possibly this AG? 👇
Situation in #HI so disturbs me that I'm writing this thread on a Friday Night!

Here's Legiscan pg showing #SCR131

Note Action: One Day Notice 04-01-19

No amt of searching HI legislative pages provided a def'n of what this means

My guess - it goes to Senate for vote Apr 1
