Okay, maybe not literally die, but while Mitch McConnell controls the Senate, people are literally dying. From immigrants at the border to mass shooting victims in schools, Mitch McConnell has done nothing for the American people. Right now, we are in the middle of a serious pandemic, and while other countries are in quarantine, our government tells us to go to work and hope for the best; they have it all under control.
Well, they do NOT have it all under control.
In order to pass laws that stem gun violence through gun control, that provide for the poor in this country, that offer medical attention before you need the ICU and ER, they need to pass in the Senate. The House of Representatives has passed over 200 bills ranging in topics from background checks to election security, from combatting the climate crisis to women’s reproductive rights, and the Senate. led by Mitch McConnell has done nothing. He hasn’t even brought these bills to the floor for an up or down vote.
It’s appalling, and quite frankly it’s un-American.
One way is to get rid of McConnell. Donate to his opponent for the Kentucky Senate: Amy McGrath.
Another way, as Senator Brian Schatz of Hawai’i says, “Pick a Senate race.” Pick a Senate race where the Republican is vulnerable, donate, volunteer, and get rid of McConnell’s majority.
Get Mitch or Die Trying is the link to help him on his way to retirement. Your donation is split evenly between candidates. Learn more at the link.
With only five Democratic candidates left in the race for the nomination, today’s Super Tuesday voting is as important as ever. One thousand, three hundred, forty-four (1344) delegates are up for grabs, and despite what pundits and naysayers declare, all but one candidate has a chance to lead the field. We’ll know later tonight who that person is!
States voting today include:
Alabama Arkansas California
Colorado American Samoa (caucus)
Maine Massachusetts Minnesota
North Carolina Oklahoma
Tennessee Texas Utah
Crooked Media is promoting and supporting the 2020 Election. One way they are doing that, in addition to Fair Fight 2020 and Vote Save America is Leave it All on the Field. We know that to win in 2020, we need to be in the field, on the ground, organizing, informing, talking to voters about the future they want to see, and doing everything we can for the Democratic nominee in order to get Trump out of the White House, his cronies out of the Senate and further down ballot, and begin to repair what’s been done to our country.
I first became more aware of the FEC, the Federal Election Commission when its Chair, Ellen Weintraub tweeted corrections to President Trump’s pronouncements several months ago. I have since followed her on Twitter, and trust in her unbiased opinions about fair election and campaign finance rules.
The FEC is an independent regulatory agency that enforces campaign finance law and it is a good organization to follow and learn what it’s all about. It’s important to know what the regulations are in regards to campaigns and finance so that when we see discrepencies or anomolies, we can speak out. And we all should. We all should also be able to give the correct information in answer to questions as well as simply know where to search for the answers we do not know yet.

Beginning next Monday is the first of nineteen voting days to choose the Democratic candidate for President. Voting will take place in fifty-seven primaries and caucuses from the fifty states and seven territories. What follows is all of the primary/caucus dates. Find your state, make sure you’re registered, and vote for the candidate you feel passionate about. Be part of the process; make your voice heard. Then after the Democratic National Convention in July, unify behind the candidate (more on that in later weeks) and return the country to the rule of law and common decency.
Before you review the primary schedule, visit Vote Save America. They have tips on how you can help the candidates, stop gerrymandering, volunteer, donate to the eventual nominee, check your voter registration, and other resources to make your vote count. Check them out.
