    If we have a shot in hell of making the changes happen that we so need, than we better take back the House, the state legislatures and every other damn office that we can.

    If we think it's tough now, just look at what the Republicans have been doing in states like Wisconsin, Michigan and North Carolina.

    They're showing exactly what they'll do on a Federal level and it's far, far, from a pretty picture.

    Voting rights? You know, those things we need to actually get good people into office and change things?

    I'm betting that only the select few would be allowed near a ballot box.

    Civil Rights? You know damn well what would happen.

    Women's rights? Forget about it.  They want us back to being uneducated, in the kitchen and pregnant.

    Worker's rights? Yeah, right.

    Environmental safeguards and work to get off fossil fuels? That would be gone.

    And the list goes on.

      Famous Truman quote, possibly apocryphal:

      "If someone is given the choice between a Republican and a Republican, they vote for the Republican.  If someone is given a choice between a Republican and a Democrat, they vote for the Democrat."
