Americans for Democratic Action

So Trump has now allowed the United States to be co-opted by Russia and North Korea. Is this the "winning" we were supposed to get tired of? If so, I agree...I'm tired of it.

Today marks the two year anniversary of the mass shooting at the Pulse night club in Orlando. Sadly, we still have a lot of work to do if we want to see meaningful gun control reforms put in place. For those of you in the DC area, there will be a candlelight vigil in Dupont Circle to mark the anniversary.

Another ‘believe me’ moment for Trump that his blinded supporters (and Fox News) will soak up while the rest of the world has to clean it up. Too dangerous to be playing at President in these moments.

Fiction writers and satirists have had a bad run over the past 18 months. The truth is just far too shocking to compete with.
Example: Republican candidate for Governor of Florida, currently in charge of firearm background checks as the Ag Commissioner, has failed to actually do those background checks for more than a year!!!

The Conservative "Think" Tank, Heritage Foundation believes that common sense gun control isn't needed ( but that school vouchers could improve school safety ( I "think" they are in the "tank" for the highest bidder not the common good.

Trump and his legal team claim to be above the law in memo to Mueller team. No you are not! No one is above the law or we are simply not a nation of laws. Stop Trumpism by speaking out, acting out, and voting out his supporters in Congress and elsewhere. Justice and our future depend on it.
