I refuse to join the “let Texas secede” chorus.
It’s not a red state, it’s a suppression state.
What of the 4m people who voted for @BetoORourke against Cruz?
The 4.8m who voted for mjhegar against Cornyn?
Everyone who was denied equal access to the ballot?
Leave them to rot? #SaveTexas

You can’t say “just move.”
Not everybody can pick up and leave for a variety of reasons. Wealth. Health. Family. Work.
They’re stuck. Now courtesy of the republican destruction of Roe v. Wade, they are born there regardless of what the mother wants. #SaveTexas

Saying “F*ck Texas” says “F*ck you” to a lot of good people when you mean “F*ck Abbott,” or “F*ck the TX GOP.”

Those people are out there, doing their best in a hostile environment. They need encouragement. To know we have their back. That we’ll help anyway we can. So… #SaveTexas

What are the BEST WAYS you can think of to HELP Texans?

I don’t live there.
I’m not on the ground.
Let’s stop - myself included - treating them like a Red MAGA blob of hate.

This isn’t a debate. It’s opinion. Reply with ideas, I’ll amplify the best I can. ✌️ #SaveTexas

2/ I see so much gray in the world. And don’t get me wrong, I detest some of what they think and feel about the world, deep in my soul.

We winter in Florida. where we live w &are friends w many GOP supporters. We just continue to do good - working within the community & it’s efforts. It’s a little hard to hate when you are able to see the good in another. Life has to stop being viewed in 2 dimensions; yes/no; good/bad; black/white.

Thanks for the assist.

I have a short list of candidates and organizations that are fighting here in TX pinned to my profile.

You've inspired me to see if I can add to it this weekend.

TX is picking a fight. Help US win that fight.

Is Texas salvageable with all the gerrymandering? I’m not being snarky. I genuinely want to know. 🤷‍♀️

IMO they need to be hit with lawsuits for disenfranchising voters. Did I hear they threw out something like a million mail in ballots? I don’t know who would do that… DOJ? Marc Elias/Elias Law Group? The ACLU?

You cannot win if you don't fight.

Republicans and various TX billionaires have stacked the deck against regular Texans.

We are writing new history for them-if you can help, please do.
