In the good old days, you had a choice between two parties. Both were represented by reasonable people for the most part. There were some political differences..the old conservative vs liberal mindset.

In recent years however, the @GOP has become a party of extremists.
Due to religion, racism, reaction to equal rights. Who really knows the reason, but here are some things today's GOP stands for:

No abortion even when raped, even when Mom's life depends on it
but, no social services for poor children

for anyone
Heck. the GOP won't even entertain a ban on bump stocks and now, you can even print your own gun to bypass those pesky background checks.

Make it harder to vote. Require an I.D.- but close the facilities at which you can obtain one, but only in poor communities.

Do not ask me to be civil to hateful bigots. We need to do better. Politely glossing over racism has crippled our country, and allowed hatred to fester. This behavior is warping us, and keeping us in a constant state of panic.

Panicked people do not make rational decisions. Trump’s go to move of stoking fear of other is entirely intentional.
It is not just Hitler who has used this. Radicalized Evangelicals have been using the fear response in our country for generations. They condition people to fear divine retribution, both to control behavior, and to shape government policy. #EmptyThePews

I just wrote a letter to my congressmen using
It's interesting that the Democrat had the choice of using #GunControl for a topic.
For the two Republicans who pretend to represent me, I had to use #education as #GunReform wasn't an option.
1. My letter started with:
Even Justice Scalia agreed that the 2nd Amendment does not extend to military weapons in the hands of civilians. More guns in schools just means more shootings and more deaths.

2. I continued with:
For this reason, should it come to pass that guns will be put in schools, I will tender my resignation as a public school teacher in the state of Florida. A teacher in Parkland gave his life protecting his students.
