To those who say "but centrists win elections" riddle me this:

What's the point of winning elections if the country keeps tilting to the far right?

Example: Obama won and then expanded Bush's drone policy, extrajudicial killings, and indefinite detention.
In a country where progressive issues have majority support, how is the Supreme Court now a rightwing rubber stamp?

Why are we leaving the #ParisAgreement?

Why are kids dying in cages?

Why are racism and white supremacy flourishing?

How do we have such #ExtremeInequality?
How are we going backward on women's rights?

How are we turning into #Gilead??

It's because despite occasional Dem victories, the system is structured to preserve the patriarchy and oligarchy. It's designed to enrich the rich and powerful at everyone else's expense.

#DeathbyPrescription - Doctors murder an estimated 150,000 Americans each year, simply by lacking the most basic understanding of drug interactions. It’s our 4th leading cause of death. And it’s about to get a whole lot worse.
These are not ODs caused by mistaken instructions, nor pharmacy errors, but people taking meds as intentionally prescribed. As a cause of death, #DeathbyPrescription ranks far above Alzheimer's, diabetes, the flu, intentional murders and suicide.
When MSM talks “Overdose Tragedy in the US”, I wait to hear to the main story. It’s not narcotics, legally prescribed or not, nor other illegal drugs. Because more than twice as many suffer #DeathbyPrescription. There are ‘burying the lead’, In fact, it’s never mentioned.

THE GOP IS OUT OF CONTROL

1. Any Dem who says we need MORE evidence for #impeachment or that they're worried about the optics, shouldn't be in a leadership position.

2. Instead of MORE candidates joining the 2020 race, we need some to start withdrawing.

WOMEN ARE UNDER ATTACK

I've been in politics for two decades and I've seen my party steadily lose ground to the rightwing onslaught. Women are now facing #Gilead in states like #Alabama, #Georgia, #Ohio, and more. The Republican Party is an extremist threat.
ACCEPT OUR FAILURES. AND FIGHT SMARTER.

I look at my own efforts working within the Democratic establishment to bring about change. And I see failure. I want to do better. I ask Dem leaders to look in their hearts and ask what they've done wrong. How did we let things get here?

DEMOCRATIC LEADERS ARE FAILING US

My jaw is on the floor as @morningmika eviscerates the Dem leadership's argument that we haven't reached the #impeachment threshold.

When Mika Brzezinski is to the left of the Democratic Party WE NEED CHANGE AT THE TOP.

What Democratic leaders have done in the 21st century has NOT WORKED.

Polling and pandering, cowering and caving to a Republican Party bent on extremist domination is a failed strategy.

We are moving toward #Gilead, toward lawlessness, while Dems dither.

ENOUGH.
#Alabama is just the beginning.

We need to elect and empower more lawmakers like @AOC, @ewarren, @IlhanMN ... and we need to step up as our own leaders to fill the vacuum left by a Democratic Party leadership unwilling/unable to stop the rise of right-wing extremism.
