Trump has shown blue states dont have a president. He allows west coast to burn with barely any action but insulting dems. He wages war on dem cities. He threatens to cut off blue states. @GOP insults blue states

If there is not a blue wave, blue America needs to secede...1
...I know this is radical, some would think a tantrum. I am serious. The largest states in this country, the most financially productive, the net givers that are financing the red states that hate blue states, have next to no government. We have a senate that throws out...2
...the Constitution by making up rules to block a democratic president from placing a Supreme Court justice. We have Republicans who work as hard as they can to stop democratic cohorts from voting. GOPrs want an authoritarian, anti-democratic country that hates half of its...3
...citizens. Our own government considers itself at war with half of the country - again, the most financially productive half. One side isn't concerned about education, the other is. One is anti-science, the other isnt. One side considers equal rights to be an abomination...4
...the other doesn't. One has an entire propaganda media system designed to generate conspiracy theories and hatred of its fellow citizens, the other reports on how the other side hates us. The blue states finance the red states, then when there is a disaster that hits blue...5
...states, red state leadership says "fuck you. We're not helping you." Red states worship guns over kids, blue states want reasonable gun control. The blue states dont have a federal government, have half a country that hates them, are feeding tons of cash into red states.../6
...which are too uneducated, too deceived, too hateful to understand that they live off blue state money. Blue states are subjected to pollution demanded by republican leaders. There are no shared values. Nothing logical means binds them together but history. And yes, blue...7
...states would be divided from red states by cross-America. Just like USA is divided from Alaska. Just like USA is separated from Hawaii. There can be coastal unification, or two countries united the same way the EU is. And support for red states would stop. Let them find...8
...out how much Fox has been lying to them. We could easily have a 2 year right of return or departure on both sides - if blue staters want to go to a red state, go. If red state citizens want to go to a blue state, go.

Blue majorities are dictated to by a hateful minority..9
...which is clinging to power with every anti-democratic means they can find. They have robbed blue states of a federal government. They loot the states for cash and then refuse aid when needed. They make their fellow Americans their enemies.

So, if this is not fixed, leave.

Trump's broke. He has lots of assets (whose value *he* assesses), and those assets have lots of debt. But he also has massive operating and personal debts that he will not show, that are funding his "Look, ma, I'm a billionaire!" act. His businesses dont produce enough cash to...
...cover his total debt obligation. Thats why he remortgaged the hell of out Trump Tower recently, pulled out $100 million, & squandered it all. Thats why he's been dumping liquid assets - he needed cash. Hell, Enron did the same thing in the months leading up to its collapse...
...& just like Enron, assets/debt on assets is a narrow picture that disguises true financial condition. Thats why they were hiding total debt & cash flow. Trump is trying to do the same. You need total debt - personal & corporate - plus total debt service cost vs cash flow...

Indisputable: Trump faced financial disaster in 2015 when he came down that elevator. Cohen said Trump's idea was to run for president to up his brand, not win. It was a con. But he won.

So what was he to do? He temporarily solved his financial troubles by conning America...
...and making *US* pay *HIM* with out taxes. That is why there are all these reports about Secret Service staying at Trump properties, military staying at Trump properties, him trying to push there G6 onto a Trump property. Just grabbing cash, much of it ours, to bail out his...
...endless business incompetence. Then, the ultimate grift: Lobbyists and foreign government pouring cash into Trump's hotels, golf courses, etc, all to curry favor with the world's crookedest and most incompetent businessman. THIS is what it is all about. THIS is what the con...

Something happened tonight that just stunned me. I was discussing current events with my 25 year old and he said, “well, you know, people my age have never seen a functioning government.” I stopped. “But you saw Obama”
“ yah, but when I became aware was 2010, and that was....
...when the GOP was blocking everything and pushing for america to default on its debt. It wasn’t just the president. The system as a whole was nonfunctional.”

Then he said, “don’t you get it? Thats why my generation is so cynical. To us, government is a mess that is...
...incapable of managing anything.” They will be paying for the trillion dollar tax cuts, they will be paying for the consequences of climate change, they will even be paying for the consequences of Covid.

But judges.

We as a nation have failed our children so badly.

The most frustrating thing about Trumps Covid incompetence: if he had JUST seen more than today’s stock charts, if we had done a true, 90 day national lockdown with public education on masks, plus testing and PPE development, this would have ended in early June. Business would... up and running, people would be out and about, kids would be back at school, colleges would be operating, there would be none of this mask fighting because it never would have been politicized. EVERYTHING that has happened since the virus got here - the spread, the death...
...the business collapses, the desperation, grandparents not being able to see their grandkids, kids being orphaned, nursing homes on lockdown, schools barely functioning - ALL of it is Trumps fault, a consequence of his stupidity and inability to accept that magic is not...

Lots of dems are missing one major fact on fears about overruling Roe V Wade: Abortion cant be outlawed. A court could only ALLOW a state to outlaw it.

So, we begin: States with democrats legislatures and/or democratic governors would not outlaw it. This issue would be...1
...huge on driving pro-choice folks - who are the majority, with variants of meaning - to the polls. But assume every red state outlaws it. Fine.

Then, mass contributions come in nationwide to run a transport system. People in need of an abortion of brought to a state where...2
...they can get the medical services they need. Then they are brought back home.

Plus: A democratic congress and democratic president put into law a legalization of abortion nationwide. However, to protect these rights, democratic voters should FINALLY get off their asses...3

The main way to save American democracy - which GOP hates - is to completely transform SCOTUS, not to tilt it toward democratic as opposed to Republican majority, but to make the majorities largely irrelevant. Which means we need 27 Justices. The way....1…
...this would work would also expose the GOP's "constitutionalism" as just BS policy seeking.

No 1 or 2 people - particularly when you have pure partisans like Alito and Thomas on the court - should have the power to change American based on policy preference, nor falsely...2
...claim "original intent" allows for throwing out all precedent. The amount of overruled - or ignored - precedent in recent years has been shocking. If these Justices *are* just calling balls and strikes (which we know they aren't) no one could possibly object to using...3
