Republicans will chant “thoughts and prayers” after 20 kindergartners are executed in school, as they step over the corpses to vote against gun reform. Republicans will scream “voter fraud” as they vote against election security 3X.
Republicans will cry “my body my choice” when it comes to a life saving vaccine, but will force a 12 year old to give birth to her rapist’s baby. Republicans will salute the blue and claim the party of law and order, as they beat police with an American flags.
Republicans pride themselves on the “limited government” ideology as they pass bathroom bills. Republicans believe this to be the greatest country in the world as they ban books and history.
Republicans campaign on the pride of the military and veterans, while 40,000 veterans are homeless and burn pits keep raging.
Democrats need to campaign on the death and destruction of democracy if republicans take over. The hunter will always be the hero until the lion learns to write.

Let’s talk about Nikki Haley’s record when she was governor of South Carolina… @NikkiHaley
You championed to bring Volvo plant to the state, had a reported price tag of $70 million of state "surplus" money and a remaining $53 million through economic development bonds. By one estimate, the deal could cost taxpayer $87 million in interest payments alone.
You only gave BMW, Boeing, Bridgestone and Michelin — totalled $800 million, or about $100,000 for each of the 8,000 jobs created. All 4 companies donated over $600,000 to your campaign.

I’ve been watching Dopesick and it makes me feel sick. It makes me feel sick because it’s personal. It’s personal because I’ve been to more funerals than weddings. I don’t need to go to high school reunions because I see all my old friends either in line at a wake or coffin
It makes me feel sick that 20 plus years later, millions dead many of those friends and patients that I loved, and nothing has changed. Big Pharma writes the rules and dictates policy. Rehabs are profit over people.
We still look down upon and think less of those who are addicts. We shame them, blame them, call them junkies and ignore them. It’s personal because I worked in a rehab for years, and the stories, the faces, the tears haunt me everyday.

When I was pulled over for an expired registration, the trooper had my car towed and drove me home. When I got pulled over after a long night of driving, the trooper told me to drive straight home.
When I got arrested, I got handcuffed in the front, was allowed to use my phone and they officers brought me to breakfast before taking me to the court house. I think about these incidents a lot, and how different they might be if I wasn’t white.
I think about my parents never teaching me what to do if I got pulled over. I’ve never been asked to step outside the car. I’ve never felt fear if a cop is driving behind me. I’ve never censored my words/ emotions when talking to cops out of fear of retaliation.

Here’s what Trump is doing to the Hispanic population. He is seeking to cut the Department of Housing and Urban Development by about $8.6 billion (15.2 percent), which would take a toll on the economic empowerment of millions of Latinos.
Today, Latinos already account for a $2.3 trillion economy—the eighth largest in the world if it were ranked on its own. Investments in programs that empower Latino communities.
While the Latino public school student population has doubled over the past 20 years, three-quarters are segregated in high-poverty schools, which suffer from fewer resources.
