This twitter exchange explains...
The following exchange reflects the same ridiculous argument Gov. candidate Kathleen Vinehout repeated that stopped me cold:
Following is a list of good Democratic issues in no order.
(1) End gerrymandering.
7) Protect the environment & take concrete actions against global warming.
3 percent of registered voters have a favorable opinion of payday lenders. Yes, even used car salesmen and Wall Street banks are more well-liked than payday lenders. The entire business model of payday lending is based on trapping people in cycles of debt that they cannot escape, all the while forcing them to pay exorbitant fees and interest rates.
11) Support DACA.
(13) Prioritize production of alternative energy such as solar over fossil fuels such as coal/GOP or Dems:
American voters say 67 – 24 percent that President Donald Trump should publicly release his tax returns, according to a Quinnipiac University National Poll (FEB '18). Every listed party, gender, education, age and racial group, except Republicans, says Trump should release his tax returns.
(20) Legalize marijuana.
(24) Support prison reform.
(24) Support prison reform:
87 percent of Americans agree that some of the money being spent on locking up nonviolent offenders should be shifted to alternatives like electronic monitoring, community service and probation. 65 percent support fair chance hiring, and 87 percent of voters strongly support replacing mandatory minimum prison sentences for non-violent offenders with a system that allows judges more discretion. 85 percent agree that the main goal should be rehabilitating people.
Now, what will Democrats do knowing this? Fold em and walk away?
