Either party could try to pass a federal abortion law or Constitutional amendment. This is what should be done. Instead, they both want #SCOTUS to do their work for them.
Neither did @email@example.com. #SNL
.@firstname.lastname@example.org pulled no punches. #SNL
Of course. Please push back on stupid propaganda like this no matter which candidate/party you support. #LiberalValues
Would you say anything if you saw supporters of your party/candidate trying to illegally manipulate the vote? I think a lot of the people complaining about this most vocally wouldn't. They'd justify it in their heads that the other side is doing it too. #LiberalValues
Should we try to watch #BetterOffDead with my 13yo daughter? @email@example.com
This is illiberalism. If we don't care more about the political system than achieving political power, the end of our republic is only a matter of time. #LiberalValues
I've been trying to find a good source explaining what #ObamaGate was. Trying to wade through conspiracy accusations and what seems to be confirmed like the weird treatment of Flynn, this is the latest installment.
The worst part of being so close to the election is that somehow people are even more likely than normal to act like political consultants pushing/attacking candidates/parties instead of engaged citizens discussing and trying to better understand issues and policy. #LiberalValues
Americans are consistently told there's something magical about a president's 2nd term. Somehow they'll do what they couldn't do in the 1st term. @BarackObama@twitter.com would finally be progressive, @realDonaldTrump@twitter.com will now actually end our democracy. Of course nothing actually changes.
Neoliberalism told us that the natural state of human beings is to be selfish, competitive economic maximisers. We built a society around this vision. It's a society riven with epidemic #depression & #anxiety & #addiction, in part because this is not, in fact, our human nature.
If @realDonaldTrump@twitter.com is right, why did @THEHermanCain@twitter.com die? And when will everybody else get the #COVID19 treatment that our president did? For free. Thanks.
