People say that I sometimes live in my own little world and they may be right. Here is my world—–
In my world children’s education comes first and foremost. We don’t voucherize it and turn it over to private corporations that are only concerned with profit.
In my world we don’t attack people for promoting proper nutrition in school, we thank them for it.
In my world we don’t round up immigrants, hold them in camps until we can deport them. (Hitler rounded up jews, put them in ghettos until he took them to the concentration camps.)
In my world we don’t assume that because members of one religion commit an act of terror all members of that religion are terrorist. (If we are going to do that we need to assume that all Christians are terrorist because Timothy McVeigh (Oklahoma City bombing) was a Christian.
In my world a foreign government would never interfere with our elections. (If you think that didn’t happen you are in denial. The FBI has confirmed it.)
In my world voting would be as easy as 1-2-3. There would be no voter suppression.
In my world one political party would never shut down the government in an effort to keep 30 million people from getting affordable health care.
In my world 47 senators from that same political party would never send a message to another country attempting to undermine the president’s negotiation for a nuclear treaty. This is sedition and punishable with prison time.
In my world we don’t send our young men and women to fight wars for the benefit of corporate America. Let them fight their own wars.
In my world those with the most help those with the least. I’m not talking about giving to charity so they can get the write-off. I’m talking about paying their fair share and paying fair wages.
In my world elected officials don’t run from their constituents, they meet them and talk to them. I’m referencing the 200 Republicans who are finding out that Obamacare (ACA) is more popular than they led people to believe.
In my world we take care of our veterans and our elderly and the sick.That includes leaving veterans benefits, Medicare, social security and ACA alone.
In my world everyone has equal opportunities no matter their ethnicity, skin color, sex or sexual orientation.
In my world we strive to continually move forward with new innovations and improve the quality of life.
I am a progressive Democrat and this is what I fight for.
