When I was called back to service in 2004 for the Iraq War, I was attached to a California reserve unit.
They were 99% Hispanic, and some weren’t citizens.
I was one of three white guys in that unit. But I never felt like that, since they treated me like family.
#ImmigrantVets As much as our nation has scorned and shunned Hispanic immigrants, I would’ve understood if they treated me as an outsider.
I would’ve been disappointed, but understanding.
But that’s not what happened.
And they were some of the finest Marines I’ve served with.

@RonaldOClair @tqnews I read up on you Ron, and I think I know why you support Trump.
You were unaccustomed to what poverty does to different people, when you first saw it come into your area.
But you, like many Trump supporters, pass judgement without considering your own problems. @RonaldOClair @tqnews You saw—and I’ll quote you—“riffraff, junkies and crack-whores”—come into your area, and you weren’t having any of it.
But the reason really wasn’t because of their vices, was it?
It’s was their race.
Because you, yourself were an addict.

Democrats are really bad at this game.
We run from one catastrophe to the next with our hair on fire, and our rhetoric becomes increasingly desperate in the process. We fail to understand regional politics and how our rhetoric is used against us in purple districts.
#AbolishICE There are plenty of things about #ICE that need to be changed. But the only way to change that is by being in power. How can we not see that the idea to #AbolishICE can be used as a broad message of @TheDemocrats being anit-law enforcement and for #OpenBorders???

I’m starting to see firsthand, how Russia used support for Bernie Sanders to divide us.
I supported Sanders, and many accounts which I still follow are starting to come into focus.
I’m compiling a list of those accounts that have a clear goal of dividing us.
#2018Midterms One obvious sign is when an account is critical of US foreign policy, which deserves criticism, but defends Russia.
Search the term “Russiaphobia”, and you’ll find plenty of accounts to keep an eye on.
