Should Democrats approach Sen Murkowski and lobby her to switch to our party?

Buried underneath all the GOP bullshit is a conflicted person that is struggling with her GOP party's toxic culture vs her own ability to be reasonable.

In other words, her ability to be reasonable is starting to outshine her ideology. She sees the venom that Trump represents and detests what it has done to our country.

That makes her reasonable enough to be a Democrat.

People can change and that is something that we as Dems must never forget. It's our job to change hearts and minds with simple, basic facts.

I hope in the coming days that Dem leadership will sit down with Sen Murkowski and lobby directly to her inner good because there is good hidden in her somewhere.

Sen Murkowski, its not too late to save your soul. C'mon over to the side of good hearted people. You wont regret it.

Being reasonable might just be the best way that anyone can serve their country.

What will it take for Twitter to perma-ban Trump?

Twitter has been one of the top enablers of Trump's venom for too long.

Now Trump is using it to incite sedition and insurrection.

WTF will it take to ban his ass?

(Title)18 U.S. Code § 2384 - Seditious conspiracy

If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.

Thanks to Cornell for their nice legal resource. Makes it ez for someone like me that needs help understanding law.

I hope this helps others understand the crimes that the Trump family has committed.

Upholding the rule of law in regards to high ranking public officials is patriotic.

Indicting Agent Orange and family will be as American as apple pie!

(also on edit, the wording on these laws appears to criminally condemn the violent riot at the capitol. Everyone that entered the capitol might be indictable.)

How DU educated my dumb simpleton ass.

I admit, I had nearly lost faith in democracy after 2016.

Fast-forward to 2020 and Biden gave me hope. He's just so darn likeable that I felt like America couldn't possibly fuck this up again and re-elect Agent Orange. Still, Nov 3rd kinda felt like a partial loss in the days after. Dems seemed to under-perform. It felt like another gut punch.

But in those days after Nov 3rd, something mysteriously cool was brewing. Biden was starting to pull ahead of Trump in Georgia.

I though to myself, how is it possible that Ga is suddenly bluer than purple Florida? What happened in Ga that flipped it from its quite red past into a new Dem state?(still purple but winnable purple)

Still, I thought, how did Ga do it? I turned to DU and found the answer.

Stacey Abrams. (and the thousands of others who encouraged GOTV efforts)

Stacey Abrams' poise shows her leadership capabilities. She is a rising star in Democratic Party politics. Her leadership ability has proven to thrust her into future presidential aspirations. She would be a wonderful Dem President someday.

She didn't get depressed about 2016 like I did. Instead, she channeled her energy into a massive GOTV effort and wow, did it pay off. She helped the effort to make Mitch Mcconnell senate MINORITY leader and succeeded. That's leadership.

Florida and Texas could learn a lot from her leadership. So could many other swing states. Abrams plotted the course to victory that other swing states need to follow.

She inspired me to the point that my faith in democracy will never waiver again. EVER.

GOTV works. It will be my focus for the rest of my life.

No more getting depressed. No more sitting on my hands.

Let's roll up our sleaves and get to work on 2022 midterms. Abrams style.

Your crowning achievement- 363,000 dead in the past 11 months from a pandemic you called a hoax.

Greatest first term in US history? In terms the death tally, perhaps.

The US set a record this year for total deaths. The most dead in one year in US history.

Stable genius?

Unstable dumbass is more like it.

Agent Orange will go down in history as the deadliest president in our nation's history.

Conservative is American codeword for Fascist.

Trumpster/Limpblob Conservatives HATE democracy.

They are the authoritarians.

They are white supremacists.

They are anti-science.

They claim covid is a hoax.

They are the anti-vaxxers.

They give sweet-heart deals to big banks and the MIC.

They cut taxes for the super-rich and shift the burden of taxation to the little people.

They oppose regulation.

They work to create a white nationalist nation.

Democrats, tired of being called socialist?

Then it's time to take the floors of the house and senate. Call out conservative GOP'ers for what they are.

American Fascists.

Trump, Perdue, Loeffler, Mcconnell, Graham, Marjorie Taylor-Greene just to give few examples.

Urge the next AG to open investigations into their treasonous, Fascist wrong-doings.

They tried to overthrow democracy.

Oh how Fascist of them.

Why Trump should be led out of office in handcuffs.

Is he conspiring to cover up Putin's recent hacking of critical government computers and systems?

If so, he is in direct violation of the oath of office that he took..

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL ENEMIES, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."

That old saying..
The cover up is almost always worse than the crime.

To president-elect Joe. Please do the right thing. Have Trump arrested.

Prosecute his Fascist ass.

Christianity vs covid gets and F.

Where are our man made gods?

vs 320k+ dead souls in the US alone.

Do covid deaths get a free pass to heaven?

Covid is a middle finger to man-made religions. Every fucking one of them.

Now you know why my atheist soul burns, even before I die.

Microbes are our #1 enemy..

Pandemics will become our #1 threat.

A warming planet is steroids for microbial evolution and growth.

Fear the microscopic.

But fight it with science.

Thank you Dr Fauci. For being the voice of reason vs Trump's anti-science presidency.
