  1. Re: Imagine if there had been three more dems in the senate

    What, exactly, can they do without 50 reliable senators?
  2. Re: oathkeepers thought trump would "federalize" them

    Maybe. Maybe not. Red states have women who like the right to an abortion should they want one. We don't know if people getting locked up behind the attack on the Capital will cost or gain GOP votes....

  4. Re: Imagine if there had been three more dems in the senate

    Yes, and no. It's to show that voting matters. It matters for voters to KNOW one party is better for them than the other party is.

  5. Re: Imagine if there had been three more dems in the senate

    48 out of 50 democratic senators voted for progress. NO GOP senators did.
  6. Imagine if there had been three more dems in the senate

    Trump's court nominees would not have been confirmed.

    Voting rights laws protecting votes would have passed.

    Abortion would still be covered by Roe.

    EPA would have ability to do its work

  7. Re: oathkeepers thought trump would "federalize" them

    My question is one of when people loyal to Trump realize it's a one way street.

    I don't know if he'll be prosecuted or not, but he, himself, seems to be losing support.

    Perhaps you'd explain what being a conservative means today. It seems to mean opposing raising wages, providing healthcare, etc. and/or giving tax cuts to the top 10%.
