Can Texas turn blue in 2020? The writer thinks so and so do I.

Ted Cruz won his last election, but saw a 13 point margin drop from his first election to 2018. That's a 13 point pro-Democratic shift. Other seats flipped. #SundayThoughts #TurnTexasBlue 1/7

Support and volunteer for @mjhegar - an amazing Democratic candidate running to replace John Cornyn in the U.S. Senate.

To paraphrase, "Texans deserve a Senator who represents their values: strength, courage, independence."
That's not Cornyn. #txlege 3/7

Now that Mueller’s testified, I feel even more certain that no one is coming to save us. If we want to end this corrupt administration we have to do it ourselves. Yeah, that means making some sacrifices. That’s just the way it is.
Step 1
Peaceful Protest

-Washington DC
-State Capitals
-Local Meet Ups

Let’s create small, cooperative groups that can assist in things like transportation, meals, child care, planning and most importantly, keeping each other safe.

Protests occur regularly. Check online often.
Organize locally. Have a small but constant crowd outside the official offices of state representatives. Take turns. Go for a few hours once a week.

No one wants to see dissent every single day. It will take a toll.

CALL REPS DAILY!

For those considering voting for Trump, ask yourself these questions:
1. Do you invest in the stock market?
2. Can you save anything toward your kids’ college?
3. Does your boss come to work in a $150,000 car, while you’d have to sacrifice groceries to fix yours? 1/
4. Is your community getting needed infrastructure repairs?
5. Has the homeless population in your community decreased?
6. Is your community more tense than ever before?
7. Do you live paycheck-to-paycheck?
8. Are you terrified of losing your job? 2/
9. Are more people employed in your area as a result of tax reform?
10. Can you take the day off to go fishing like your boss does to play golf?
11. Are you worried your brilliant daughter won’t be able to get a decent job?
12. Are you a single parent working three jobs? 3/

1) One of my first memories was seeing this sign: 👈Whites Coloreds👉. My schools were segregated until I was in 6th grade. The Klan used to set up their tent right beside the church we belonged to. I remember my father, a realtor at the time, explaining to my mother how they
2) were still able to deny selling houses to blacks in white neighborhoods. The lines between the white & black neighborhoods may as well have been chiseled in stone, the differences were so stark. I hear far too many say "ancient history, times were different, why bring this up?
3) Ancient? I'm 59, maybe ancient to my 8th graders but far from a doddering old man. I grew up with racism all around me; I can certainly recognize it when it oozes out so strongly from the dark corners where most people had condemned it to. We have a president that is RACIST.

THREAD:
Someone asked "Why do some British people not like Donald Trump?"

Nate White, an articulate and witty writer from England, wrote this magnificent response:
(2)
"A few things spring to mind.

Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem.
For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility,
no honour and no grace - all qualities, funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed.

So for us, the stark contrast does rather throw Trump’s limitations into embarrassingly sharp relief.

Plus, we like a laugh. And while Trump may be laughable,

Bernie Sanders - Record of Anti-Black Votes, Sexism and Russia

A THREAD
1/ Bernie Voted For The 1994 Crime Bill

Bernie is a Cop? Bernie Sanders was fully aware of the damage the 1994 Crime Bill would do to minorities, yet he still voted for it and was proud of his vote and Tough on Crime approach when he ran for the Senate.
2/ Bernie Sanders voted for policies/laws that disproportionately affected Black and brown people:

- Death Penalty expansion

- Stricter penalties against Immigrants, Drug dealers and Juveniles

- Three Strikes Law

2020 PRO-DEMOCRACY RESOURCE THREAD IDEA:

Late night tweeting -- FTW! :)

I don't have time to think of who all I'd like to tag in on this, let alone undertake this myself, so I'm just going to type out a basic idea for now & ask people to share it. Please excuse typos. /1
American voters & Twitter users need a reliable, easy to find, go-to source for the most important "Never Trump" and "Trump/Russia" articles/research done since Trump became a 2016 candidate. /2
We need a MASTER PATRIOT RESOURCE THREAD, clearly divided by topics; thus, a quickly accessible Pinned Tweet--Or--a dedicated Twitter account--Or--an outside webpage that offers a list or catalog of articles/research … /3

Friday Action:
Keep the pressure on the Republicans!
If you aren’t outraged, you should be!
Oregonians show your support for Governor Kate Brown!
Our Republican friends should get an earful after the President admittedly took help from a foreign country and would do it again in order to win. If you aren’t aware, it is a felony.
His effort to clean it up doesn’t help. Please contact your representatives and give them an earful.
PLEASE put the pressure on Republicans especially in the Senate. IMPEACHMENT will not help us unless something changes in the Senate.

Straight from the #MuellerReport. Required reading for all American voters. This is an #IllegitimatePresident They are destroying our republic and our democracy with the help of every republican in Congress (except Justin Amash). #VoteBlue2020 #DemSenate2020 /1
"Did I say I have a great memory or one of the best in the world?" Trump asked for clarification, to which he was told he'd said he had "one of the best in the world."
"I don't remember saying that. As good as my memory is, I don't remember that, but I have a good memory,".. /2
“And I can tell you, speaking for myself, I own nothing in Russia. I have no loans in Russia. I don't have any deals in Russia. President Putin called me up very nicely to congratulate me on the win of the election,” Trump said. 2/16/17

#Alabama, #Ohio, #Missouri, and #Georgia have begun the @GOP's orchestrated attack on women with restrictive abortion laws.

Make NO mistake this is NOT about protecting life. It is a hostile GOP and their #WarOnWomen restricting #WomensReproductiveRights and #WomensHealth.
Highly restrictive abortion laws are not associated with lower abortion rates! Whether legal or prohibited the number of abortions taking place remains relatively unchanged. Highly restrictive abortion laws simply prevent SAFE abortions.
In countries where abortion is completely banned or permitted only to save the woman’s life or preserve her physical health, only 1 in 4 abortions were safe; whereas, in countries where abortion is legal on broader grounds, nearly 9 in 10 abortions were done safely.

Trump and his MAGA followers like to call themselves "patriots" but in fact, this "president" and his followers do not love the United States of America, instead, they love their distorted and hateful vision of what they think it should be.
In Trump's America, there is no American Dream, the ideal by which equality of opportunity is available to ALL Americans, allowing the highest aspirations and goals to be achieved. MAGA's vision includes only White Conservative Christians full of hate, anger, fear, and ugliness.
Trump fuels his base, feeding their fears, legitimizing their distortions of what it means to be American. He disparages Syrians, Muslims, Immigrants, People of Color, Women, The LQBTQ community, & incites violence against them. The GOP enable and encourage him on this mission.

“Unlike Mueller, the commission could be given the important assignment of educating the public about what happened in 2016 and resolving whatever questions Mueller leaves unaddressed in his still-secret report.”
