This site focuses on Republican politicians and conservatives that rip off their constituency. We have the Tea Party, fundamentalist churches, the corruption of ALEC and other special interests groups. But the site also supports progressive Democrats and the local Democratic Socialist of America. We must have ideas on how to replace regressive and corrupt politicians with something better.

When they attacked the Dreamers — they attacked the American Dream itself!
From Alejandro Avilés,
Director of Outreach & Engagement:
Yesterday, Donald Trump, Mike Pence and Jeff Sessions not
only attacked Dreamers — they attacked the American Dream itself.
If you believe, as I do, in that fundamentally American
ideal that everyone in this country deserves an equal opportunity to work hard
and succeed on their merits, please help us fight back right now. Text
“WITH DREAMERS” to 30644 and tell your Representative to immediately pass clean
legislation protecting DACA recipients.
DACA is a five-year-old program that has allowed hundreds of
thousands of young people who were brought to the U.S. as kids — most
before the age of six — to stay in the country and make a positive
is their home. Dreamers are just like the rest of us. They study in school,
lead productive and successful careers, serve in our military and are an
important part of the fabric of our society.
And, of the 800,000 DACA recipients across America today,
an estimated 75,000 Dreamers identify as LGBTQ. We must demand that
Congress act now to protect them from being deported to countries many of them
have never known — including some countries with poor human rights
records. We can’t allow this to happen.
While the Trump-Pence Administration peddles hatred,
discrimination and bigotry, we must unite and fight back. Stand up for Dreamers
today and urge your Representative to protect DACA — text “WITH
DREAMERS” to 30644 and you’ll be connected to their office.
