why should I vote for someone who will take all my guns and support murdering babies?

Seriously, these people would probably permanently give up electricity to keep their guns if they had to make a choice.

The GOP base votes on these three things, all of which are pure fantasy:
1. The left will take my guns.
2. The left will murder my babies.
3. The left will force by sons to be girls, or my girls to use the same bathrooms as boys who pretend to girls.

That's all they have left, but it's enough to maintain power in most of the U.S.

It's beyond frustrating.

GOP: "Remember when Dems lied, and Dems fled to Cancun, and did fuck-all for Texas during the Polar Vortex crisis?"
Suckers and losers: "We sure does! Save us, Republicans!"

I mean, just look at this delusional crap:

That's all they hear, all they'll believe. Because it feeds their anger. I think their anger is their main motivation in life.

They live to hate...rather than examine the reasons & sources of their real problems.

is gerrymandered to hell and back. Like most Southern states, there are hundreds of thousands of disenfranchised voters who could easily turn Texas blue, were the system not rigged to keep them from casting their votes. Voter suppression is a huge problem. Writing off the South as a lost cause ignores the many, many POC and LGBTQ+ folks who live there and want change.

We should always be mindful of the marginalized people who are stuck living in areas controlled by Confederate sympathizers and progress-hating conservatives. Those marginalized people WILL remember this at the ballot box, but first they need to get to the ballot box. Hopefully Stacy Abrams and her team can make sure that they do.

AOC is in Texas, working a food bank. She also brought with her $2 million.

Will Sean or Bowtie man tell 'em?

We need a G.F.M. to buy air time and newspaper ads in Texas to promote what progressives are doing for Texas.
