Ignore the polls and get out there and #Vote on November 6th. Relying on polling is a relic of a time gone by.
I’m not saying looking at @FiveThirtyEight’s model and charts and stuff isn’t cool, because it is and provides some insight. But no matter what the numbers say, it’s most certainly NEVER an excuse to not #Vote because you feel your peeps are a “lock”
Need nothing further than to point to 2016. Which by the way, @FiveThirtyEight didn’t really have wrong, but the “selected not elected” mindset existed before 2016. Why else would over 100 million people choose NOT to participate in their civic duty to choose their leaders.
🍑Lucy McBath @LucyWins2018: Mother, Wife, Businesswoman, Activist for Social Justice.
🗣️You might recognize her from the 2016 #Democratic Convention: she represented Mothers of the Movement, a group of women whose African American children have been killed by gun violence.
🍑She intended to run for the #Georgia Legislature, but after the Parkland #Florida shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, she decided her aspirations weren’t high enough. #NeverAgainMSD#BeAVoter
🍑She’s running for Congress in George’s 6th District and could use your help because she’s in a tight race. She’s running against the SAME NRA-backed, A-rated Republican that Jon Ossoff ran against in a runoff election in June 2017. Ossoff should have won back then.
But seriously, this #Khashoggi story is scary. Jared Kushner is biffles with the crown prince and his father in law calls the press the “enemy of the people.” We need answers to this.
Like, people are over here listening to Kanye West give a soliloquy in the Oval Office while Kush sits there smiling to the camera. This is the news story today. Swift vs West II.
A hurricane hit Florida that Florida has never seen before. In OCTOBER. And the lower third is a Kanye quote that says Drumpf “saved the planet” days after the UN said we’re all dead in 20 years. Not 2,000, not 200, 20.
What do Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah & Washington have in common?
He had rich parents, who on the state level had plenty of political influence. They had some real power. His parents hired expensive attorneys and experts, spent a bunch of money, and I assume favors, and he got off.
“You cannot sit back and wait for a savior. You can't opt out because you don't feel sufficiently inspired by this or that particular candidate. This is not a rock concert. This is not Coachella. We don't need a messiah." - President Obama #BarackObama
"Do not complain. Don't hashtag. Don't get anxious. Don't retreat. Don't binge on whatever it is you're binging on. Don't lose yourself in ironic detachment. Don't put your head in the sand. Don't boo. Vote. Vote." President Obama #BarackObama#TakeItBack#FridayFeeling
The American people are confronted with a #GOP Congress and Administration that are relentlessly ransacking the futures of American families and seniors, all to further enrich their lobbyist and special interest friends, big corporations and the wealthiest one percent. /1
"I'm so excited to announce the launch of our second TV ad! We need new leaders in D.C. who will stand up to @realDonaldTrumpand fight for what matters. Every generation has its moment — I'm running for Congress because our moment is now." ➡️@dank#COTD
A week ago I was tired and frustrated cause I was focusing on the wrong things. I was resisting but also thinking about things like why xyz didn't follow me or why they didn't RT me or do I make an impact
I took time to reflect and refocus. Here is what I learnt. /1
It's not about me stupid
It's about the children pulled away from families, 528 of whom are still not reunited and it is unclear if/when they will be reunited. #FamiliesBelongTogether#chi
It's #WhatsAtStake for women's rights, LGBTQ rights, voter rights, Roe v Wade, ACA, health care for pre-existing conditions, Medicaid...
