Here’s the top 10 issues I’d like to see on the democratic platform in 2020

I saw this meme on Tumblr today…


It really got me thinking about what I want from the democrats in 2020, so I came up with a revised list, but still based on the Occupy Democrats list…

My top 10 issues for 2020



  1. – Punish Russia for hacking      
    – Prevent Russia from hacking 
    I’d rather prevent Russia from hacking our future elections than punish them for past deeds.

  2. –                                                                   
    – Make Climate Change a top priority 
    Climate change didn’t even make their list and I think it’s a top priority.

  3. – Add 9 Supreme Court Justices                      
    – Bring balance back to the Supreme Court 
    I don’t know where anyone is getting the idea that we’re going to add 9 Supreme Court Justices, but I think it’s more than reasonable to get the court back in balance. I’d also like to see an end to lifetime appointments and zero oversight of the justices. Clarence Thomas’s wife was lobbying for insurance companies as the court was ruling on Healthcare, that should NEVER happen.

  4. – Ban assault rifles                                                                    
    – Ban assault rifles & close background check loopholes 
    Just banning assault rifles is not enough. There should never be an exchange of a firearm without a background check. Not even if Grandpa is gifting grandchild a present. I’d go so far as to say those cases should especially require a background check.

  5. – Abolish the electoral college 
    – Abolish the electoral college 
    One person should have one vote. It seems basic to me, but apparently people still think that land mass should get a vote. I want to live in a REAL DEMOCRACY.

  6. – Fix gerrymandering 
    – Fix gerrymandering 
    Gerrymandering is a huge problem, mostly on the Right, but the Left have done it too. It’s time to end it everywhere.

  7. – We all get the same healthcare as Congress 
    – Medicare for ALL                                               
    I’m not sure why people think that Congress gets free healthcare, they don’t. They’re on the same plan that Federal Employees are on. While it’s good coverage, it still requires a good amount out of pocket and employee contributions. The more they pay, the better the coverage, just like my health insurance through my employer. I NEED Medicare for ALL. 

  8. – Undo everything Trump did         
    – Undo everything that Trump did 
    I’ve got nothing to add to “Undo everything that Trump did”. The list is so long and so horrific that it would take decades to undo everything that he has fucked up.

  9. –                                                                                                                         
    – Prosecute Soctt Pruitt, Ryan Zinke, Betsy DeVos & all other Trump minions that broke laws while serving
    I don’t believe that just prosecuting Trump is enough. It’s not nearly enough. There were so many abuses and laws that were broken by Secretaries of Departments appointed by Trump. Scott Pruitt, Ryan Zinke, Ben Carson, Betsy DeVos and so many more. They ALL need to pay for what they took from us and the damage they did.

  10. – Prosecute Trump 
    – Prosecute Trump 
    PROSECUTE TRUMP to the fullest extent of the law. He should get the same exact compassion and empathy that he gave to all of us, and to all of the refugees that he sadistically refused entry or put in cages.

Trump Lies

Trump’s lies are one of his most defining features. It’s clear it’s pathological with him (The compulsive urge to lie about matters big and small, regardless of the situation.). It’s on record, there is no doubt, the only question is why we are completely incapable of doing anything about it?

In 869 days Trump has made 10,796 false or misleading claims.

We Have a Border Patrol Problem

They’re getting arrested at a much higher rate than other law enforcement agencies, and yet I doubt that they are getting caught for even half of their wrongdoing. We have a President who has actively encouraged them to break the law. There is a culture of lawlessness and inhumanity and abuse of power that is sickening within the CBP. 

“Official Trump Poll” is Propaganda by Definition

This is not America anymore. Not even close. I am Alice and I have gone down the rabbit hole. What’s been made clear since trump stole the presidency is that we have no ability whatsoever to deal with a lunatic in the White House.

The list of things that are wrong with this is so extensive that I couldn’t begin to cover it all. Let’s start with the first issue, which is that this “poll” is coming from the person who is supposed to be representing all Americans, even those that don’t agree with him. Every day, all day long Trump makes it clear that he does not in any way represent all Americans, he represents a very small minority of very vocal Americans.

“I see Americans of every party, every background, every faith who believe that we are stronger together: black, white, Latino, Asian, Native American; young, old; gay, straight; men, women, folks with disabilities, all pledging allegiance under the same proud flag to this big, bold country that we love. That’s what I see. That’s the America I know!”

– Barack Obama

There is no way that the same person that called for that “poll” is a person that is capable of leading ALL Americans. It’s  clearly not even a person who cares about ALL Americans. It’s a person who can’t even conceive of caring for ALL Americans.

“There’s not a liberal America and a conservative America – there’s the United States of America.”

– Barack Obama

To see how deeply Trump cares only for those that support him, please take a moment to read:

No, Mr. Trump – Democrats Aren’t Socialists

Having better social programs won’t make us a Socialist country. Not even close, because we’d be doing a lot better if we were…


We aren’t even close to being better than countries that are social democracies. It’s a lie that has run its course.


Gee, I wonder what all these countries have in common? It couldn’t be Socialism, that wouldn’t fit the conservative BS and lies that they continually spread, would it?

American Capitalism is the best, right? Wrong. I actually don’t believe the US should turn from capitalism, but let’s not keep kidding ourselves.

If we want to be better than we are now, it’s clear what direction we should be going, and it’s the opposite direction that trump and the GOP are taking us.

The one place we come in first, but all the next countries rank better than us at other values and they still have great economies. We are going in the wrong direction.


I know Why Trump Loves Twitter

Trump loves Twitter because he can break all the rules that he wants, but everyone else must follow them. 

He chose a platform to spread his lies from because there is no meaningful way on Twitter to fight them besides posting snarky comments or bad memes.

If you want to actually counter his lies with links to prove he’s lying, *poof, suspended for posting links. Oh, and don’t try and counter all of Trump’s lies because that is spamming. Apparently it’s only okay for you to comment personal thoughts with no links and no pushing back on the President of the United States when he posts lies all day long. 

I don’t like writing, mostly because I’m not very good at it, as you can see. I am good at researching and providing facts rather than just more rhetoric. Twitter loves rhetoric and so does Trump. Put it in a place where people have 280 characters to fight back, and then only sometimes because every time would be spammy, suits Trump perfectly.

Losing my twitter account has devastated me, the mental and moral support it provided was invaluable. I was finding it hard to cope with a Trump presidency with Twitter and the family of Resistors I found there, without them I’m honestly not sure how I will survive the rest of his presidency. 

I’d love to hear from other people who have been suspended on Twitter, how are you coping without that support and outlet? 

I’d really like to know what Twitter thinks this is going to solve?

Twitter Suspended Me – Thank You to All Who Have Supported Me!

There isn’t much more to say. The last time I looked I was close to 34K followers and the next moment, POOF! It was all gone. I have submitted an appeal but as they couldn’t even do me the courtesy of letting me know why I was suspended, I don’t hold out much hope of winning it back.

I’m not sure what to do at this point. I’ve started a new account, but I don’t want to advertise it until after the appeal is resolved one way or the other. Please help spread the word and that I’ll be back, one way or the other. I can’t say that it hasn’t been a huge blow though. There have been several things in a row that has me down, but not beaten. I believe better times are coming, for me personally and for the country and the world politically. 2020 can’t come soon enough!

Thank you again for all the support that I have received over the last 2+ years building a group of great resisters that I cherish. I know you will keep the fight going until I can get back in it, one way or another.
