  1. Biden and Harris 2020💪💪💪

  2. USA what is on the top of the list of the best countries in the world it was a long list Trump took it right off the list not to the bottom not right off the list

  3. Vote! Vote! Vote! Vote cause your life, health, liberty & freedom depend on it!

  4. 58 million votes already cast. That’s almost 50% of the total votes cast in 2016.
    And yet, republicans are forcing through the SC vote. RIP voice of the people, I guess. 🤷

  5. Trump stepped on so many toes. Now the toes are showing up in numbers like no one has ever seen before.

  6. You guys are doing a good job but it would be even if you guys do this in the swing states. California and NY is 100% Demonstrates. Let’s do this in Texas, Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio etc.

  7. Voting, voting, voting! Don’t ignore this election. Vote for the blue! The consequences of another 4 years of Trump’s rule will have to be raked up for many decades.

  8. Voting, voting, voting! Don’t ignore this election. Vote for the blue! The consequences of another 4 years of Trump’s rule will have to be raked up for many decades.

  9. Voting, voting, voting! Don’t ignore this election. Vote for the blue! The consequences of another 4 years of Trump’s rule will have to be raked up for many decades.

  10. See the Corbett Report on Utube for more!

  11. _NOTE! This is an old style broadside, not a “Tweet”. If it’s too much for you to handle, move on. But If you’re deeply appalled by what’s happening in this Country, and you’re just needing a kick in the pants to go out and vote, read on_

    *VOTE! BECAUSE WE STILL CAN!*
    🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
    _A Broadside_

    *WE HONOR AND CHERISH* the memory, the courage, and the spirit of those Americans who suffered and fought and died whether willingly or unwillingly in the name of our Nation: on the battlefields, on the cotton fields, on the Great Plains and the River Valleys, and those Americans who are today being assaulted, beaten, shot and murdered by unrepentant and undeniably racist police forces befitting a fascist regime, and those Americans who daily fill our hospitals fighting a novel virus, contagious and deadly. But if we wish to make this claim of honor true, first we must honor Truth itself; for, Truth is the only thing that cannot be overcome. *AND TRUTH IS NOW TELLING US WHAT MUST BE DONE!*

    *REGRETFULLY, IN THE LIGHT OF REASONABLE AND SOUND REFLECTION upon:*

    👉 *His* fluency of falsehoods,
    👉 *His* fear of criticism and responsibility,
    👉 *His* insistence on taking credit where credit is not due,
    👉 *His* deficit of emotion-regulation resulting in juvenile displays, personal attacks and insults unbecoming an adult,
    👉 *His* incumbency and his bid for reelection being void of any plan, agenda, mandate, message, or ideas,
    👉 *His* open threat to decline a peaceful transfer of power should he lose his bid for reelection,
    👉 *His* inability to maintain discretion on social media _and_
    👉 *His* increasingly odious and unstatesmanlike behavior that indicates a pathologically unstable personality such that:
    *President Donald Trump has indisputably forfeited the trust and the confidence of those government confrères in his charge that procure sensitive and secret knowledge of matters affecting national security they cannot in good confidence share with him — their President and Commander-in-Chief!*

    *THIS SITUATION* is unworkable, and gives rise to threats both domestic and foreign to the United States. *WE CANNOT AFFORD THE LUXURY OF BEING AFRAID!* Our moment, described as an “Inflection Point”, has come calling and in this election year of 2020, we have something to do — Let this be _OUR_ remedy!

    *OUR NATION* imperfect, ever learning and self-correcting, possesses the keys to enjoy “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”. Nevertheless there come, from time to time, challenges to this ideal that require remediation. In these times we shall insist that our citizenship be recognized and counted, uncontested!

    *AMERICA WILL NOT BE DISGRACED ANY LONGER!*

    *The case against the President is prima facie inasmuch as:*

    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been derelict in his duties,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has undermined The Constitution of the United States,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has committed acts of human cruelty at our Nation’s southern border – potentially to include crimes against humanity,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been impeached,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been found and confirmed as having lied to the American people about the true nature of the seriousness of COVID-19,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has not achieved any tangible act toward the betterment of the Nation,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has withheld information he is required by law to produce,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has verbally insulted our Servicemen and Servicewomen in our Nation’s military – calling them “suckers”,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been curiously evasive amid investigations persuant to the nature of his relationship with the Russian President, Vladimir Putin,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has openly encouraged extreme street violence at the level of complicity,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has perverted the utility of America’s federal defense and peace-keeping forces by turning them against America herself!

    _This list of offenses, while not exhaustive, provides more than enough cause to pursue criminal charges!_

    *ALL OF THE ABOVE IS CLEAR, IS OBVIOUS, AND IS TRUE! AS WELL, IT IS KNOWN TO BE TRUE BY ALL BRANCHES OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT, BY THE FBI, BY THE UNITED STATES MILITARY, et al; AND BY THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION!*

    *FOR PRESIDENT, DONALD TRUMP IS NOT QUALIFIED! ON THE CONTRARY, HE IS A MENACE TO THE PEACE!*

    *THEREFORE:*
    *IN ORDER TO RENDER THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT FAMILIAR AND PLEASANT TO THE PEOPLE RATHER THAN TERRIBLE AND UNRECOGNIZABLE*

    *WE SHALL* lawfully heed any required safety measures due to COVID-19 without protest or complaint to include wearing face coverings, gloves, and practicing social distancing. _And we shall do these things because as Americans, we care – above all – about the wellbeing of our fellow citizens._

    *AND IN RETURN*
    *WE SHALL NOT* tolerate any barriers, threats, obstructions, hindrances or intrigues of any kind by any party whether from inside the United States or abroad by design or effect that suppresses, deters, delays, denies, manipulates, interrupts, or otherwise alters *OUR CIVIL RIGHT AND OUR CIVIC DUTY TO CAST OUR VOTE, INVIOLATE, AS IT IS GUARANTEED BY THE LAW OF THE LAND — ON OR BEFORE ELECTION DAY — TO REMOVE PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP AND HIS ADMINISTRATION AND REPLACE THEM WITH JOE BIDEN AND KAMALA HARRIS — IN THE NAME OF TRUTH, FOR THE SAKE OF JUSTICE, AND TO RESTORE THE PEACE!*

    _Brad_

  12. A single vote may not move a giant needle. But a single vote at each opportunity adds up over a lifetime to move society. Vote People, vote.

  13. TOO BIG TO RIG, TO REAL TO STEAL
    VOTE, UNDECIDED THIRD PARTY VOTES WILL NOT CHANGE THE DESTRUCTIVE PATH WE’RE ON.
    BLUE ALL THE WAY

  14. How many of these arenas are in battleground or stakes that could turn? That’s the question

    Florida
    Michigan
    Wisconsin
    Ohio
    North Carolina
    Pennsylvania
    Texas
