A case of those who believe government is the problem making government the problem. What can we do? Stay home when possible, wear masks when we leave the house, follow public health guidance & register, organize, & vote to elect a new government in Texas.

Against advice of public health experts Abbott reopened too soon, put Texans in harm’s way (especially African Americans, Latinos & low-wage workers), won’t let cities manage increased health risk by requiring masks & now blames young people for record level of hospitalizations.

“I couldn’t sit with the soldiers I had been on the battlefield with. I had to go to the back of the bus,” said Jones, who went on to become a lawyer and civil rights activist in Baton Rouge. “Those are the things that come back and haunt you.”

Our gratitude to all Americans who fought on DDay, especially those for whom the battle against hatred and white supremacy didn’t end with the defeat of the Nazis. https://t.co/ZWKE6SKZSk

There are more than 1 million Democrats that we can register to vote in Texas with your help. Imagine their power at the ballot box in November as we work to defeat Donald Trump and elect a Democratic State House in Texas. Sign up to join us this Monday: https://t.co/trlfWfYHAf

While the man in the highest political office shows no leadership, a man who holds no political office absolutely defines it. Thank you @KillerMike https://t.co/QN14BhUegD
