I was introduced to another rising star in the Democratic Party today.
Her name is Tulsi Gabbard. She represents the 2nd District of Hawaii in the House of Representatives; she is a combat vet and a major in the Hawaii Army National Guard.
Tulsi is impressive; quite possibly a hero, the future of the United States; the future of the Democratic Party.
I’m suggesting that we start to support candidates, NOW, for the elections in 2018 and 2020, and then mention them on as many blogs as possible. Even if you don’t agree with her, tell us why and mention her name. It’s time to leave the Hillary Clintons and Donald Trumps behind and forge a new future for politics in America.
To be clear, I want Tulsi Gabbard’s name known across the Untied States.
And when the campaign of alternate-false truths begins, I highly recommend you check out what Vote Smart reveals about the real Tulsi Gabbard. I’ve already had someone claim that she couldn’t be trusted because President Littlefingers Donald Trump considered her for a cabinet post.
Seriously, someone distrusts her for something she has no power over!? Maybe Trump did this to cast doubts her way. In my book, only fools trust Tricky Trump.
Vote Smart is not a fact-check site. Vote Smart isn’t a misinformation or conspiracy theory site. Vote Smart is not a gossip mongering tabloid. Vote Smart is not biased.
Vote Smart reports the actual facts. Vote Smart offers a fact based bio, how she votes in Congress, her positions, ratings, speeches, and where her funding comes from. I focused on her actual voting record in Congress to make my decision.

Reblogged this on Lloyd Lofthouse.
I jumped over to Wikipedia (from your other blog) to read more about her. She certainly sounds impressive in many arenas – especially for her support of the First Amendment and her willingness to stand against the debate limits in the most recent Democratic Party primaries. I also like that she was an early Sanders supporter, who would, no doubt, support her candidacy.
Thanks for putting her on my radar. I’ll be watching closely now, especially to see how she responds to the antics of the incoming administration.
I agree that those of us who are not at all happy with the results of our past election must begin mobilizing immediately if we hope to turn things around before it is too late to do so. Democracy is not dead yet!

I’m more concerned that the U.S. Constitution isn’t shredded/murdered by Littlefingers Donald Trump. I read his short speech and came away with the impression that he plans to ignore/challenge/test the U.S. Constitution often to accomplish his agenda. I suspect we are going to have a lot of cases headed to court in the next few years challenging many of the things Littlefingers attempts to ram through, with help from the Alt-right, evangelical, neo-con, Koch brothers brand of libertarianism controlled GOP, as he bullies and intimidates with Twitter fear.
If our Constitution holds we can continue to hope for a better future after this bully moves on to whatever “reality show” catches his attention next. I fear that as long as he is alive we shall never be rid of his twitter finger, however (and that does NOT indicate support for attempts at ending that life prematurely, btw)
As you say, the next 100 days will tell the tale.
I think it all depends on Republican in Congress with the courage and conviction to cross the aisle and stand against Trump when he obviously tramples the U.S. Constitution.
Yes, it does. I hope enough of them have the courage to do so.
PS. I find black background make for very tough reading – it takes more time than I have on many days. More people might come and stick if it weren’t so difficult to read. Just a thought.
I know, I should probably change to another WordPress design. Many of them are free. It isn’t hard to do. Just takes a bit of time to find the right one and switch.
I was in the middle of a response re: black background that suddenly disappeared in a manner similar to when it posts (tho’ I don’t see it here). Apologies if it seems to be disjointed. I usually proof and edit before sending, but the WordPress gremlins had other ideas today, I guess.
