Obama used deficit spending to bring us out of a near-depression. 

Trump is using deficit spending to try and fool people into giving him another four years. Our economy is not "booming." It's a house of cards.

Democrats won big in 2018. We won in Kentucky (!) and Louisiana(!!) in 2019, despite personal appearances from Hair Fuhrer.

We can do this.

Here's something else interesting from the representative nationwide poll. Sanders is leading, but it's not a two-person race at all, and the Super Tuesday states do not look like the four earliest states. A very small number of delegates have been allocated so far, and if your state hasn't voted yet (and especially if you vote on Super Tuesday), you have a lot of influence over who the nominee to take on Trump will be.

I just read this CBS article that says that most voters think that Trump will win reelection.

If you're a Trump supporter, stop reading. You're happy.

If this idea is abhorrent to you and you are an American over the age of 18, you have a lot of control over this. You get to vote for the Democrat in November! Register now! Get your friends and neighbors registered! Drive them to the polls! There are more of us, and this poll also shows that if we #VoteBlue, we win. cbsnews.com/news/2020-poll-mos

I moved my account to mastodon.social from @AgentHill. Looks like my followers came with me, but my tweets didn't. I'll be active again as soon as I get settled in.

We definitely must flip the Senate in November.

We need to get McConnell out of the Speaker's position as well as remove Senators who gave Trump a free pass on the rule of law.

Our current Democratic Senators are valuable. For clarity, Loffler is in Perdue's seat and Enzi, Alexander, and Roberts are retiring.

Adopt a race or three and vote them all out.

I migrated my account to mastodon.social.

All followers should have been carried over.

Please let me know if I accidentally lost you.

Democrats must vote in MASSIVE numbers, especially in pivotal Electoral College states.

Republicans & Russian hackers wlll do everything they can to steal votes.

If Trump loses by a close margin, he will contest. If the margin is large, it'll be much harder. #SundayMorning

"Our Revolution" fielded a bunch of candidates in Republican-held districts in 2018. Not a single one of them won.

Concerns about what a Sanders candidacy might due to down-ballot elections are valid.

@IronMan @TKAJanuary @Thunderbirds511 @GlennGriffin8 I've been called a Yellow Dog Democrat and a bleeding heart liberal but I've never heard of the term Centrist or Establishment Democrat before 2016. We're supposed to be working towards a common goal of saving democracy, not dividing our party. Also, Ruffalo is getting roasted in that thread, last I checked.

@IronMan @TKAJanuary @Thunderbirds511 @GlennGriffin8 agreed Tony. Why should I want to vote for a candidate who engages in name calling before I have a chance to vote? Heck, I think Sanders has some good ideas but M4A or Green New Deal will be implemented in the first year, let alone 100 days. It's going to take a lot of compromising to get started on those plans but unfortunately, today's younger voters haven't seen that in their lifetimes. We've got to stop governing with a hammer and nail.

@LiliVonShtupp
Me, neither, Lily.

I've been on the county Dem committee in various capacities and serve as a GOTV manager for a local Democrat. People of every shade of blue that I know consider themselves "Democrats."

I'd like to get behind a President who wants to be the President of everyone, not drive me away.

@TKAJanuary @Thunderbirds511 @GlennGriffin8

@TKAJanuary
A very high percentage of others' candidates who, when surveyed, say they will , except for Sanders supporters, which is about half.

That second part is dangerous.
@Thunderbirds511 @GlennGriffin8

@Thunderbirds511
So will I.

Unfortunately they have most observedly not backed us up for decades nor do I see this us vs. them tactic helpful.
@GlennGriffin8

When people support people who troll your friends, it's disappointing.
