From Twitter thread:
Make America 2008 Again.
Some people say we need a third party. I wish we had a second one. - Jim Hightower
I am presently experiencing life at the rate of several WTFs per hour. [can I just say Amen?]
Whores of Wall Street
We’re not forgetting, Dems. Expect a 2016 replay.
This is so sad. It's like they wanna see the economy crash again.
A joint Obama/Ken Burns five part documentary series on the cultural impact of vending machines in America."Hope You've Got Change".
"Feet Don't Fail Me Now". One mans odyssey in search of a comfortable pair of shoes.
There are black folks who will not be entertained by this. Too bad. There are folks in Yemen who weren't entertained either.
Even better, Americans funniest drone executions of innocent US citizen minors. Obama really put a fresh new face on warmongering.
Lifestyles of the Rich and Infamous.
Bernie on Twitter-"I have some important news to share, and I wanted you to hear it from me: Today, I am announcing my intention to run for re-election to the United States Senate in 2018."
These are frightening and unprecedented times. We have a president who is not only a pathological liar, but someone who is trying to win votes by dividing our nation up based on the color of our skin, our country of origin, our religion, our gender or our sexual orientation.
If reelected, you can be sure that I will continue to be the fiercest opponent in the Senate to the rightwing extremism of Trump and the Republican leadership.
But being anti-Trump and anti-Republican is not enough. We need to continue our fight for a progressive agenda which will take on oligarchy, and improve the lives of working people throughout our country.
It is my intention to run a strong grassroots campaign throughout Vermont and I look forward to your support.
But today, I wanted to let you know that it was my intention to run again for the Senate, and to ask if you could help us reach some modest fundraising goals we need to fund this grassroots campaign. You can do that here: (ActBlue link).
Ugh, this thread is infested with shills and trolls...Go Bernie, go, and run Bernie run, 2020!! 💖💕
I’ll just read between the lines and assume a guy who’s willing to sign up for a 6 year senate term would also be willing to take on a 4 year presidential term that begins in 2 years.
My heart started fluttering when I saw his wording "intention" and then I saw it was just for his reelection. That's fine but I need, and the rest of this country needs, him to run in 2020 and completely Landslide Trump.
Wonderful news. 2018, the Senate... 2020, the Oval Office! Feel the BERN!
Democrats and Republicans can't agree on anything- unless it involves torture, war, wall street, or privacy.
#resistance has always been a sham. It's a grift that exploits trump's boorishness as a cover for the fact that they're fine with his policies.
democrats were fine with Obama assassinating US citizens without charges. Whats a little torture ?
Can someone please explain the need for a Democratic Party when we already have a Republican Party? Anyone?? Anyone?? Anyone??
When you have the Democratic Party, who needs Republicans?! Way to go, DEMS!
MORE 👏FEMALE 👏 WAR 👏 CRIMINALS
"Donnelly, Heitkamp, Manchin, Nelson, Shaheen, Warner." In case you wondered who the Dems were.
Because it gives people something to do with their time and money. Look at how long we all played the game if "being democrats or republicans." For decades the American people spent so much time and energy getting our team elected.
I used to wonder why people didn't vote for anyone and when I asked them they said that nothing changes after people play the game . These people had taken their red pills years before we even knew it was an option.
>The vote is obviously good news for net neutrality proponents, but it's also just the first step, and the next will be much more difficult. The bill will now move to the House, where another majority vote is required, but Republicans have stronger control, with 235 members versus the Democrats' 193. If the measure passes the House, it will go to the President, who can veto it if he so chooses. Given his disdain for government regulations, and the fact that Ajit Pai, the driving force behind the repeal, was appointed as FCC chairman by the current President, it seems like a long shot.
Not time to celebrate yet, still a big fight ahead!
Ermahgahd, I just cant understand why people say both parties are the same!!! #McResistance #TrumpDerrangementSyndrome #ProgressiveOrBust
I don’t drink enough alcohol.
Do we have a list of the democrats supporting her?
Heitkamp said Haspel had assured her that torture would never be used in the future.
So a war criminal saying 'my bad' is enough for the resistance? We should be talking about imprisoning Haspel- not rewarding her with more power to abuse.
This article outlines my AMA candidate question. "How do you plan to prevent The Party from forcing you to work against your own agenda?"
Even when we win an election, The Party alone determines the official's future in DC. Party Offices and committee assignments are run by The Party, and if they don't want you, you get nothing. And a Congress Person without The Party making them relevant is just another person hanging around in DC, waiting to cast a vote on issues decided long before the vote was allowed.
Dispirited, he went back to his family farm in Putnam County, New York, and ended up teaching history in nearby Woodstock for a meager salary. "It's pretty much impossible to even make a significant paycheck in the U.S. anymore without being involved in some form of criminal enterprise,"
Major-party politics in America, he insists, is little more than a giant protection racket. As he describes it, the party bureaucracies use local elections as forums to gobble up cash by the multi-millions, with ideology or even winning being, at best, ancillary considerations.
We already had a revolution, it just wasn't ours and we lost.
Perfect explanation for why I think Dem-Invade won't work.
This is depressing and unsurprising.
Puts it into perspective, doesn’t it.
That certainly is a shocking statistic.
