The Speaker Leads the Way

As important as it is to turn #IncompetentDonald out of Office, it is equally important to do everything possible to retain Democratic control in the House of Representatives and to gain a Democratic majority in the Senate.
Today I made a donation to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee
(dccc.org).  I would propose you do the same.  It doesn’t matter how much you are able to donate, but more is better.  My own was a small donation, but it was what I could afford.  Every penny will count.
Republican donors will spend hundreds of MILLIONS of dollars to keep Trump in office, retain the Senate and flip the House back to their control.  The party which controls the Senate, controls who gets approved (“confirmed”) to the Supreme Court.  The party which controls the House, controls the country’s purse strings AND whether or not a President should be impeached.
You also need to educate yourself about your Governor and State government.  2020 is when we (as a country) conduct our census and then the House seats are apportioned based on that count and your state government decides how those seats are voted on (“gerrymandering”) within a state.
Stand up!  Make a difference!  Donate and then vote!

[Regarding volunteer crowd-sourcing transcriptions of hand-written (formerly) personal notes…]  I do it a lot myself.  Branch Rickey’s papers are just awesome.  He is most famous for bringing Jackie Robinson into Major League Baseball, and through crowdsourcing we were able to transcribe 1,926 pages of his scouting reports on prospective players.  I would never have guessed how fun baseball scouting reports could be!  One of my favorite lines is “I doubt if he has any adventure in his soul.”
