This is the best fucking thing I've heard in days! It is my thread of hope.
Two new supreme court positions filled and approved by liberal Democrats so the vocal minority, far-right christian conservatives who have been methodically working to push their self-serving, Handmaids Tale agendas are neutralized.
The District of Columbia and Puerto Rico ratified to statehood. Their voices need to be heard and they should have a say in what happens to their citizens. I don't understand why we have territories anyway!
Healthcare and prescriptions available and affordable for everyone AND safe and profitable for the care centers and care workers.
Large corporations (I'm talking to you Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, Wal-Mart) lead the country in paying their employees a wage that allows for food, shelter, medications, insurance and a little savings even if that means the corporate CEOs, stockholders, etc are paid a few million dollars less per year,
Community leaders, law enforcement and social services building trust and security for all neighborhoods; rural, suburban, urban.
Marginalized, lonely people able to participate, learn, give back and grow as productive people instead of turning to internet vitriol, drugs or alcohol, violent gangs or militias, or waste away alone where ever they are.
Pro-active climate action, new jobs, innovation and opportunity to protect the earth, air and water.
Radical HOPE? No. It's EQUITABLE!
The base argument is that no one wants to pay 'more than their fair share' or pay for someone who isn't 'carrying their own weight'. ie: "Why do I have to pay for you to have "that" (education, healthcare, housing, food)?" It's always about money. There's enough money - it's just unequally distributed. In fact, it wouldn't even have to be our money, it could be Jeff Bezos money! He'd hardly notice a couple billion spent on social services.
Leaving it there Friends!
