Certainly this is more productive than arguing on forums with armchair authoritarians, agents of grievance, and finger pointers.

This week we saw our Justice Department seek out special deals for Trumps cronies, a MAYDAY moment for our democracy. If my friends or yours are convicted of a felony (or seven of them), they have to pay the price for their actions. Friends of Donald Trump, on the other hand, get special intervention from the Justice Department. This is exactly how it works for Putin, Erdogan, Duterte, and other enemies of democracy.

These actions have made it crystal clear that impeachment was justified and moral. No Democrat should ever hang his or her head for standing up for that cause.

This administration reeks and its smugness is off the charts. Plain-spoken, common sense Americans who see this need to get to the polls and urge their neighbors to do the same.
There is not a single thing that getting more voters out in Chicago will do. Illinois is so firmly Democrat in federal elections the Trump campaign hasn't even opened an office in the state. They've conceded it both elections.

The best thing anyone in Illinois can do is register where your cabin or what-ever is: Wisc., Ind., or Michigan. Its is nice to know a vote for Trump in Illinois is simply martyrdom. The latest from the weirdo:

Trump pushed CIA to find, kill Osama bin Laden's son over higher priority targets
When the CIA gave Trump a list of major terrorist leaders to kill, he said he'd never heard of them. Instead he focused on a target with a famous name.

You are right about Illinois, but the point is that there are outreach efforts to states like Wisconsin--phone calls, postcards, reminders to those who might otherwise stay home. An Illinois resident can do more than sit around. An Illinois resident can reach out to those in neighboring states.

Excellent point!

I've done "Postcards to Voters" for about five or six elections. None of them have been in the state in which I reside. On one side of the postcard, I always draw a picture of somebody voting, then a group of people cheering. I am such an awful artist that the people who receive the cards probably think the stick figures were drawn by somebody's grade schooler.

They send you a list of addresses and no names. You don't put your name on the postcard either. They also have a list of things to say about the candidate. It's really pretty cool, totally anonymous, and you can pick the level of commitment you want (5 postcards, 10, 20, 25, 50, etc.).

GO DEMOCRACY!!!

-- Rerouting money donated to the Eric Trump Foundation for St. Jude Children's Hospital directly into the Trump Organization.

-- Claiming that the Eric Trump Foundation was using the Trump golf courses for free when in fact they were paying an extraordinarily exorbitant amount to use them.

-- Rerouting money donated to the Eric Trump Foundation for St. Jude Children's Hospital to other charities that would personally benefit Donald Trump by holding events at his golf courses and hotels while telling donors that all the money would go to St. Jude.

Do things like this not make you sick to your stomach? Our impeached president is a crook.

I love how Democrats always promote voter fraud.
