Let me be clear: in the GOP's perfect world, the middle class suffers; our infrastructure crumbles; Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid are terminated; corporate taxes are lowered even further; billionaires profit; and only wealthy white voters have the right to vote.
The GOP also wants to undermine public education, make Christianity the national religion, discriminate against the LGBTQ community, regulate women's bodies, and ignore the existential climate crisis.
I am so damn tired of the GOP's hypocrisy and corruption. We have serious problems to solve. And we are capable of doing so. But the GOP's never-ending obstruction constantly puts us behind the eight-ball.

Q: Should we help the poor?

A: No.

Q: Should we fix our infrastructure?

A: No.

Q: Should we protect entitlement programs?

A: No.

Q: What should we do?

A: Help corporations. Our nation was built on the free market.

Q: What about corporate bail-outs?

A: Yes.

BREAKING: The Manhattan DA has officially obtained Donald Trump's financial records. A grand jury indictment likely is near.
Donald Trump fought tooth and nail to stop this moment from happening.
In our constitutional republic, no one is above the law.

Joe Manchin's daughter is behind the EpiPen greed. Neera Tanden rightly criticized her for stealing Americans' life savings to stay alive.
Chicago Tribune: "According to SEC filings, [her] total compensation went from $2.4 million to $18.9 million from 2007 to 2015. A 671% increase. That period coincides with the time when Mylan acquired the rights to EpiPens and hiked the wholesale price from about $55 to $320."
In other words, he should be referred to henceforth as Joe "EpiPen" Manchin.

Merrick Garland is set to be confirmed as the 86th U.S. Attorney General next week. Buckle up - indictments are coming.
As John Adams famously wrote in the Massachusetts Constitution: We are “a government of laws, not of men.”
Teddy Roosevelt likewise wrote: "No man is above the law and no man is below it: nor do we ask any man's permission when we ask him to obey it."

Given that Joe Biden will receive his first intelligence briefing today, I highly recommend that he receives information on why Jared Kushner is flying to Saudi Arabia to meet with MBS.
Asking Saudi Arabia to illegally hack the Biden administration to aid Donald Trump's 2024 campaign would be a federal crime.
Leaking our state secrets to MBS likewise is a federal crime.

The Texas bus incident qualifies as domestic terrorism. In other words, the President of the United States retweeted and praised DOMESTIC TERRORISM. That is the conduct of a fascist.
Terrorism: the unlawful use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims.
If fascism prevails, your rights and liberties will vanish. Laws will become arbitrary and subject to the autocratic regime's desires. Your property can be stolen. While your life can be taken with impunity. We are on a very slippery and catastrophic slope.
