The vote

There is no reason to deny the vote to anyone. Felons aren't conspiring to make america fall. individuals with disabilities aren't going to sway the outcome. Instead, denying the vote is about denigrating members of society that you don't like or trust. There is a fake moral stand against letting “those people” get as much of a say as you do. I think they should, and I don't think you are inherently better than they are. You just had a different life path, one with more choices and opportunities. Don't elevate yourself by pushing others down

Kavanaugh is confirmed. It’s imperative that we vote blue this November

It's a done deal. Kavanaugh is confirmed. The GOP just rammed through a SCOTUS judge that had multiple accusers, who will probably overturn Roe vs Wade, and who will probably shield Trump from any cases that appear before the SCOTUS.

I am always for progressive candidates. We have gotten some progressive candidate wins like Alexandria Oscoria Cortez. Let's push for progressive candidates in the primary.

But these are not normal times. The SCOTUS is about to undo decades of progressive policy with Kavanaugh added. The president is an authoritarian wannabe and he is being backed by a party that is loyal to him, and not to the country. These are not normal times.

I understand when we don't feel like voting for the "centrist" Dem in the general election, but if we don't, the country will descend into fascism even faster. Maybe if things were more normal and the Republicans didn't have this much control, and the president wasn't an authoritarian wannabe, we could have the luxury of not voting for the Dem candidate that we don't find progressive enough in the general election.

These are not normal times. We have Nazis marching with tiki torches in Charlottesville and these Nazis are silently being supported by our "both sides" president. Roe vs Wade is on the chopping block now. The president is waging war on the environment. Women are being ignored and belittled by the president and his party.

It's up to you how you vote this November. But I hope many of you recognize that these are not normal times and pull the vote for the Dem, even if it's a Dem that you don't find progressive enough. Fascism is overrunning the country and we can't afford to be divided at this November.

Discussion Megathread: Final Senate Confirmation Vote On Brett Kavanaugh

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

The Senate is slated to take its final vote on the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh later on Saturday, and barring any changes in senators' publicly announced decisions, he’s expected to be confirmed.

President Trump's nomination of Kavanaugh in July has been followed by nearly three months of controversy, a pair of confirmation hearings that consumed Washington — one that examined his judicial thinking, and the other in which the nominee denied allegations involving sexual misconduct by several different women — and two weeks of large-scale protests against the nomination that have swept Capitol Hill. The final vote, which requires a simple majority, comes exactly a month before Election Day.

The vote will come at the end of the 30-hour period that began on Friday at 10:52 a.m. EDT. The vote is expected to be taken sometime between 4:45 p.m. and 5 p.m. EDT.

Cable news networks and network channels will be broadcasting the Senate vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination. You can also watch the vote on C-SPAN 2. You can watch the Senate livestream by clicking here.

How is this going to work? Before the primaries were with just two people running as dems. Now there is a bunch of faux progressives and biden . So whoever raises the most right away and wins states right away? Won't some drop out after the first few months?
