I hope she truly feels this way, but I have my doubts. Lisa& Susan have a very Lucy VanPelt voting record.

For all the times Susan has been 'concerned' yet voted in lockstep with her party anyway, I wouldn't trust anything she says. Her actions speak louder than her words. I haven't forgotten her vote for Kavanaugh.

When you vote for President, your vote goes so much deeper than the person in the White House.

Look at the mess we face in our Supreme Court. This didn't have to happen like so many other things as a result of Trump and this Administration. Follow me here.

When we left off in 2016, the court was a 4-4 split. Had Clinton been elected, Scalia's seat would be filled by a liberal judge, 5-4 liberal majority. Justice Ginsburg would have retired and replaced by a liberal judge, still 5-4. 1/2

If Justice Kennedy would have decided to retire as he did (Kavanagh's seat), there's another liberal judge.

As it is now, we're staring at a 6-3
conservative slant and everything we care about is seriously in peril.

Stop allowing what is decent and necessary for the world to be the enemy of a perfect ideal. Think deeper than your own perfect ideology because the consequences can be the opposite of your intentions.

Get off your butt and vote Joe Biden and every Democratic Senator running. 2/2

@QueenRamonda @TonyStark They appeal to a wide range of Democratic voters. My straight, white, 70+ dad and I talk politics together all the time and he was for a year ago when I was hoping for Warren-Castro or Warren-Booker. I don't mind him getting his ticket preference. They are great! He'd have voted for my choice too.

If you're in PA, check your ballot status here. They should go out soon now that the state supreme court cleared the way. :pa:

@MariaHill @QueenRamonda @TonyStark The mere suggestion that they don’t care about people, thus implying that Trump/Pence DO care, is insulting to everyone’s intelligence. :bh2020:

It's one guy's opinion.

If voting doesn't matter, why are you elevating one Senator's quote to the word of god? Must be voter suppression Sunday in Russia. Bye!

Early voting began in more states this weekend.

Alabama, Delaware, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania: no-excuse absentee by drop-off or mail

Louisiana, Tennessee, Texas: absentee with excuse

New Jersey: in person.

Check your state. Don't wait. Vote early, make sure you are counted, and help others. :voteblue:

I have now sent 5400 text messages.

We keep running out. It's amazing.

We were informed the other day that there are 200,000 volunteers currently on the texting team.

If anyone is interested in volunteering, you can find events here: mobilize.us/2020victory/

I highly recommend it.

Pelosi says Democrats will 'use every arrow in our quiver' to block Trump's Supreme Court nominee.

Pelosi won't rule out launching new impeachment inquiry to block Trump SCOTUS nominee:

@TonyStark @HopeVanDyne

Done. I also may have reminded him that CO voters would be watching his response to this prior to voting in the CO election for the Senate.

That's the definitive solution to this whole issue. It's faster and easier to vote than spend most of our time fighting for our simple survival and the survival of the people around us.

jlio boosted

It definitely isn't.

We have to show up for our neighbors over ourselves. "Vote like everyone's lives depend on you" - I hope that's what people are thinking.

The only I could pick was one celebrating the life incredible accomplishments of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Does any other justice have one like Kesha's "Here Comes the Change"?

It's easy to despair over what we can lose if her seat goes to a Trump appointee.

We won't go back. She fought for too much for us.

LINDSEY GRAHAM on March 10, 2016:

“I want you to use my words against me. If there’s a Republican president in 2016 and a vacancy occurs in the last year of the first term, you can say Lindsey Graham said let’s let the next president, whoever it might be, make that nomination."

Lindsey Graham commits to supporting Trump 'in any effort to move forward' in filling Ginsburg's seat - CNNPolitics

Anyone who's watched Lindsay Graham go from calling Trump a kook who's unfit for office to becoming his favorite golf buddy can see rank hypocrisy does not trouble him in the least.
