12. We have lots of work to do

We need to overturn Citizens United. We need to keep mobilizing, especially in non-presidential elections because that is when the GOP gains control of state legislatures. That puts them in charge of redistricting, which makes it very difficult to change the composition of the US House. We also need to keep Republicans out of state offices, like Secretaries of State that control elections. We need also need election reforms so that voters no longer need to stand in long lines. We need to make sure that voter suppression is prosecuted and change laws, if necessary, to make sure people who try to keep others from voting do jail time. We have A LOT of work to do.
