Does he, or the GOP have any new ideas besides canceling elections, repeating debunked claims, big lies, and conspiracies?

The devotion to a #TwiceImpeached #RussiaBought individual threatens to destroy The Republican Party and is a danger to democracy. I can still recall when #Romney and #Cheney were quintessential conservatives. The "conservative" label is now tarnished.

POTUS State of The Union was a smash hit by most accounts. The reviews came from political circles as well as from the news.

At the heart of his first address to Congress, his competition with China to win the 21st century and his promises for his first 100 days.

Almost 100 days with The Democrats, #USA voters give @POTUS @JoeBiden high marks for the economy and  #COVID19 response.

POTUS will deliver his address to Congress tonight and will propose a $1.8 trillion 'families plan' with paid leave, child care, universal pre-K, free community college, among other expected surprises. Some say they have been the most hopeful days and nights that Americans have experienced over the past four years of blood, sweat, and tears.

President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and The Democrats face a growing battle for the soul of our American nation. They’re working to restore faith in The USA, just like President Roosevelt did during the Depression.

Before Matt Gaetz burst onto the national political scene as the sharp-tongued, attention-grabbing Trump defender, he was best known in Florida as “Baby Gaetz.”

As a parent, I understand the importance of a baby blanket. Once a child grows up and is not a real spoiled brat, they don’t  need one.

USA Voting rights, specifically the disenfranchisement of different groups, has been a moral and political issue throughout history. American eligibility to vote is governed by the Constitution as well as by federal and state laws. Since the GOP is not willing to vote for voting rights, and if the only way to safeguard our fundamental right to vote is to blow up the filibuster, then ignore Republican taunts and just do it.

filibuster is a political strategy in which a US senator threatens to speak for hours on end to try and delay efforts to vote for a bill.

The filibuster is a powerful legislative device in the United States Senate. Senate rules permit a senator or senators to speak for as long as they wish and on any topic they choose, unless "three-fifths of the Senators duly chosen and sworn" usually 60 out of 100 senators vote to bring debate to a close by invoking cloture under Senate Rule XXII.
