It's time to leave the Republican party behind

They have held our Country back from innovation, social equity and equality. We need to go on Offense and change the future of this country and the people.

Pack the courts and pass a second Bill of Rights, pass high speed rail, build beautiful green housing, secure healthcare and education for all.

Leave them behind wrapped in their hate, their legacy over the last 40 years is nothing but fighting, blaming, chaos and extraction, destruction and insurrection.

Move forward without them, to create a future of opportunity, and creative innovation that show cases a future United States learning from it's past and showcasing that knowledge into the future. We are better than this.

I'm taking my power back from the bigots and haters, they are not worth our time.

Thanks for reading my morning rant.

We have several albatrosses around our collective neck with the Manchins and his ilk in our own party. They don’t want to do any of this. And the Republicans aren’t going to just walk away from the game when they’re so close to winning for good and for all.

If we don't push ahead with a future built on more than defence of Republican chaos. We will be in the same place ten years from now.

country. And how to move a big agenda forward.

The Dems should have had their eyes opened at the insurrection.
The ruthless action to kill or kidnap Dems should be the final straw.

And that they are having meetings and discussing the need to do this.
They must do it, or America will continue the race to the bottom.

The majority of people are with the Democratic party when they pass policy for the people.

40 years of stagnation has grown this crazy lunatic fringe, and the only way to change it, is changing our party to the people's push party...a second Bill of Rights along with other innovative measures to put people back to work in skillful jobs with good paying jobs with benefits. Fast food service industry jobs can't be the only jobs of the majority.
