Democrats are a "big tent" group & often our different passions conflict but we have NO room for that this year
Let's start with what America stands for-
As a democratic republic-we elect people to Congress who represent US
Did @GOP just do that with Kavanaugh confirmation?
Or did we see the raw abuse of power of #GOPCorruption where a minority of old white men not only flouted the Rule of Law & squelched @FBI from it's mission but rammed him through despite the fervent opposition of the overwhelming majority of US?
IN 2018, WE MUST VOTE BECAUSE:
✅ American democracy is on the ballot
✅ Basic human decency is on the ballot
✅ The health of our planet is on the ballot
✅ Equality & justice are on the ballot
HERE ARE 10 MORE REASONS TO #VoteBlueToSaveAmerica:
1) Donald Trump thinks there are "very fine people" who march with neo-Nazis and the KKK.
2) Donald Trump & the Republicans instituted a Muslim ban in a country whose founding is defined by freedom of religion. #VoteBlue2018#NoBanNoWall
Romance has always been about honoring and celebrating VERY liberal values. You do not win your HEA if you don't take a risk and open your heart to someone who starts out feeling very "other" to you. You do not win your HEA if you don't take a RISK.
Liberal = let me try this new thing/see what's over that mountain/welcome the stranger at the gate
Conservative = the old ways should not be changed/we're safer here in our cave/KEEP THAT GATE SECURELY LOCKED!! (don't let that stranger bring us disease, murder, unrest!)
Unrest being the most frightening to the people in power, who tend to become conservative in order to hold on to that power. (Change? What? Why? Never! It's all perfect exactly as it is!!) But now here's some pesky stranger at the gate, bringing in new spices and new stories.
Tonight will be hard. I am without my medication. It will be 5 days before I can afford it. You see Medicare stopped paying for it because of the tax bill. They needed to make cuts to what Medicare would pay for so that they could pay for the tax bill for the rich
What this means is that my dystonia will be in full swing. If you don’t know what that means I am so happy for you. It means that I will feel like I am trying to crawl out of my skin. The involuntary movement of my body will be out of control. Because I don’t have $600 right now.
I am not telling you this because I am asking for money. I am telling you this because I am asking for votes. I am asking you to please, #VOTEBlue
I’m asking you to vote for healthcare for everyone.

@Morning_Joe@morningmika@SteveSchmidtSES@MSNBC We need to stop fucking around with the whining & moaning about how bad #Trump is. And let’s not forget-Joe & Mika went out of their way to accommodate Trump before the election INSTEAD OF EXPOSING HIM. Trump isn’t doing.../1
@Morning_Joe@morningmika@SteveSchmidtSES@MSNBC ...ANYTHING that we couldn’t predict 18 months ago. But here were are. Let’s stop pretending: TRUMP IS A TRAITOR. It’s clear he only has #Putin’s interests in mind. They want to destroy our democracy. The number of people ok w/ Trump is a fraction of those who aren’t. So it’s../2

Did you know that our country is very close to a Constitutional Convention? Quietly our republican controlled state governments are one by one voting to call a Constitutional Convention.
Back when the country was founded we did try to have a government that was a confederation of states, it failed miserably. The Articles of Confederation were ammended in 1787 and our union was completed.
In 1861 the Southern states tried to succeed because they feared the abolitionists of the North would end slavery & they would lose their power in the consolidation of a federal government
The direct result was a bloody war that pitted Americans against Americans & lasted 5 years
Yesterday, as Trump was ranting about “shithole countries,” I was in a county courthouse in Georgia looking at a death certificate for a black man who died in 1930. I watched the courthouse employees’ faces... 1/
closely as they read the cause of death “Unlawful act.” Their confused looks confirmed what I suspected; they had never seen such a vague description listed as a cause of death. They clearly did not know about the incident that occurred there 88 years before, even though it 2/
had been the focus of national news for weeks back in 1930. “It was a lynching” I explained, pointing to the word scribbled in parenthesis on the document. I had them pull another death certificate; this one for a white 16 year-old girl who had died one day prior to the man. 3/
