I think Elizabeth Warren's transition plan is the best and most practical.

Medicare for all who want it is similar to Obamacare without the individual mandate.
It won't work.

@IronMan Bernie is not in my top three choices of people on the stage, but he's not a communist. Putting in the mind of Americans that any Democratic candidates are communists is a great way to not turn out our voters. Don't do that.

@AgentHill @IronMan It’s disappointing to see big-name resisters on the birdsite doing Republicans’ work for them this morning. If Bernie does get the nomination, we‘ll have a lot of damage to undo and it’ll be partially our allies’ fault. We have to be careful... which is really great and not adding to the stress of daily life at all!

@natashar
Thinking 2020 would possibly be better than 2016 seems to have been a mistake.

Nope. We have to believe it can be better. And be prepared for slogging through the predictable shit to make it better.

I know I'm wearing my positive pants right now, and I today has been hard & tomorrow will be hard, but it *will* be better. We have too much to lose to start with losing heart.

JFC, how the F do you post a f'ing gif on this thing? Come ON, life!

@OfdonaldJ
It's hard to maintain online when people constantly shit all over you.

In real life it's much better but kudos.

My bird site existence is limited for this very reason and most of my political work and advocacy is not social media heavy.

I'm sad that you're disheartened from recent interactions (or ongoing ones). I had to walk away from a lot of it from burnout after the midterms. I'm genuinely sorry because I know you work hard - you all do.

Take a break. You are valued. And Warren is the one. You're not wrong.

@OfdonaldJ
Thanks.

A quick ride down my birdsite timeline shows what I often get back.

I don't mind the MAGAts. I do mind so-called Resistance accounts discouraging anything from calls to voting pleas to positive comments about any candidate or subject at all.

3 years plus is exhausting.

@natashar
It's in character for me to be negative sometimes.

Today's the day.

And yes, it is.
