This morning I reviewed my calendar & journal. It has made me angry. Not just irritated but 🤬🤬🤬 livid angry at people who treat politics like a game. Politics is life, and lives are literally the price when not taken seriously.
I started following COVID19 on Jan 25. By mid-Feb I had started stocking up on essentials & sharing a spreadsheet to encourage others to also stock up.
I began researching and writing a booklet for friends began late Feb. That booklet was distributed starting the first week of March.
Election security is the first step if election integrity is to be maintained. From Russian hacking & gerrymandering to DFL-only support for legislation, it’s obvious that all must support this cornerstone of democracy.
Candidate views on election security in threads
Isn’t election security a problem of the past?
Not according to an intel report that warns that the Russians are still at it. Yet the GOP says this is an attempt by Dems to seek an advantage.
"Russia's cyber operations have been successful...”
Iowa’s Caucuses relied on the internet, not a best practice. Fortunately, they also had paper back ups, a vital best practice. How’s the integrity of elections in your state compare with the nation? Check this map at Vox. #WPCM#DemCast
Polls get attention. Are you also paying attention to endorsements? Polls measure the general population while endorsements from newspaper editorial boards & unions affect voter turnout. Those from individuals? Not so much.
Franklin Graham’s tweet makes it obvious that this is a performance.
Fox has effectively isolated a swath of Americans from the #RestOfTheStory.
Fox viewers won’t ever hear the reminders of Melania’s nude photos or any of the rest of the ratio. 🙄 #DemCast
Fox reports are true only 17% of the time, but it’s false, mostly false or Pants-on-Fire 55% of the time (Politifact). Because Fox viewers never get the #RestOfTheStory they lack context to judge what’s fact.
The impeachment counsel & GOP senators relied on that. #Demcast
Dems know that an America where many win is a stronger nation than one where very few win. We know that wealth is built where infrastructure is strong & a social contact means giving back. Learn about candidate's ideas to create more winners & less disparity in this thread #WPCM
America's top 1% own more wealth than the bottom 1/2. When we consider the magnitude of the problems we face from schools, road & bridge repair, migrating from fossil fuels & climate change, it is unconscionable that so few hold so much, avoiding taxes & responsibility. #DemCast
Threaded are tweets that explore which presidential candidates "get" the many facets of social justice. Underlying bigotry shapes the policies they'll create, and affect the projects that'll get funded. Bigotry affects us all but harms those most vulnerable #DemCast #WPCM
Foreign Policy is this week’s topic for the Presidential Candidate Moment. While foreign policy is a national not party concern, it is helpful to know both where the candidates stand and how that comports with the Democratic Party Platform.
This thread is always a group effort😙
Bucket 2: Predation & greed.
DeVos, Acosta, Mnuchin, Sessions, Kavanaugh, Barr, Price, Carson, Pruitt are just a few of the foxes appointed as department heads for departments they should protect, but will undermine and dismantle. Acosta is only the most recent blatant example.
As soon as the spotlight starts revealing what's happening, they draw from
Bucket 3: Fear which includes terrorizing the vulnerable, attacking Democrats or calling on nationalistic/xenophobic definitions of "patriotism" & "christianity."
