Your Vote Shows Who You Are

This rings true to me. And I'd add that in many cases he's reinforcing the hate (and paranoia) the #GOP has convinced the #MAGA masses they should have.

Dear Ma & Pa MAGA,

Donald Trump didn't lower your taxes. He didn't get your roads fixed or your bridges built. He didn't get you healthcare coverage, lower the price of your prescriptions, decrease the deficit, end the opioid crisis, revive the coal industry. He didn't make “Covid disappear”, didn't make Mexico “pay for the wall”. He didn't “put America first” and he sure as hell didn't “drain the swamp”.

So when you say he “fought for you”, you mean he validated your hate. Because he didn't do a damn thing for you other than that.

He hates who you hate.

And sadly, that's all you think you need.

Mike Lindell, founder of the Jesus pube-filled #MyPillow, pushes drones that detect election fraud. Odds are the only thing they’ll detect is 5% battery power after 15 minutes.

The #Trump #SaveAmerica Super PAC has been misappropriating donor money at a historic level. For example, Melania Trump's hair stylist was paid $108,000 in a 6 month period according to the PAC's financial filing.

Illinois governor J.B. Pritzker’s 2023 commencement speech at Northwestern hits the mark.

The best way to spot an idiot? Look for the person who is cruel. When we see someone who doesn’t look like us, or sound like us, or act like us, or love like us, or live like us — the first thought that crosses almost everyone’s brain is rooted in either fear or judgment or both. That’s evolution. We survived as a species by being suspicious of things we aren’t familiar with.

In order to be kind, we have to shut down that animal instinct and force our brain to travel a different pathway. Empathy and compassion are evolved states of being. They require the mental capacity to step past our most primal urges. I’m here to tell you that when someone’s path through this world is marked with acts of cruelty, they have failed the first test of an advanced society. They never forced their animal brain to evolve past its first instinct. They never forged new mental pathways to overcome their own instinctual fears. And so, their thinking and problem-solving will lack the imagination and creativity that the kindest people have in spades.

Over my many years in politics and business, I have found one thing to be universally true: the kindest person in the room is often the smartest.

So this U.S. Supreme Court case of Smith versus no one is either a litany of incompetence or a brilliant conspiracy.

The travesty of recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings that take away basic rights to opportunity and body autonomy is partly the failure of Congress to make these rights laws that the court is required to uphold.

CNN giving Trump a national stage is bad enough. But the audience laughter about his liability for sexual assault, and at the victim, is truly sickening.

Decades of financial gifts from Harlan Crow to Thomas, Gorsuch hiding $2M property sale to law firm with court business, and Roberts refusing to testify before the Senate regarding #scotus ethics… I think that we officially have the most corrupt Supreme Court in history.

The current political climate in the United States is certainly stress testing this axiom.

MAGA Republicans and #Trump are pushing @HerschelWalker because they see him as a rubber stamp who represents every bullshit black stereotype they hold dear. They think the black community is a credulous monolith. The truth is that #MAGA #Republicans are the credulous monolith.

Republicans are upset with #Trump for losing them midterm elections, not for seditious conspiracy or six-digit #COVID deaths. So much for the “party of law and order”, “family values”, and “country before party”.
