Fwd: GREAT ORATORS OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY.......

 
Subject: GREAT ORATORS OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY.......
 
  
 
Orators of the Democrat Party –from the distant  past:
"One man with courage makes a majority." ~Andrew Jackson
"The only thing we have to fear is fear itself." ~Franklin D. Roosevelt
"The buck stops here." ~Harry S. Truman
"Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country." ~John F. Kennedy
 
 
But wait ....There are more Great orators of the Democrat Party –  
MORE  RECENT GEMS of wisdom:
 
"It depends what your definition of 'is' is?''
~William Jefferson Clinton
 
 
"Those rumors are false. I believe in the sanctity of marriage"
~John Edwards
 
 
"What difference does it make?" (re: Benghazi)
~Hillary Clinton
 
 
"I invented the Internet."
~Al Gore
 
 
"America is, is no longer, uh, what it, uh, could be, uh, what it was once was, uh, and I say to myself, uh, I don't want that future, uh, for my children."
~Barack Obama
 
 
"I have campaigned in all 57 states."
 ~Barack Obama (Quoted in 2008)
 
 
"You don't need God anymore; you have us Democrats."
~Nancy Pelosi (Quoted in 2006)
 
 
"Paying taxes is voluntary."
~Sen. Harry Reid
 
 
"Bill is the greatest husband and father I know. No one is more faithful,
true, and honest than he is."
~Hillary Rodham-Clinton (Quoted in 1998)
 
 
"You have a business, you didn't build that. Someone else did!"
~Barack Obama (Quoted in 2012)
 
 
And the most ridiculous gem of wisdom, from the "Mother Superior of STUPID": "We just have to pass Obama's Healthcare Bill to see what's in it."
 ~Nancy Pelosi  (Quoted March in 2010)
  (As one Doctor said:  "That is also the perfect definition of a stool sample.")
 
 
Beyond a doubt, the greatest statement of all was made by Democrat House Speaker Sam Rayburn at the first  Congressional session after Ted Kennedy was caught, on  camera, having sex with one of his aides on the deck of his yacht  ….
"Ah see that the good Senatuh from the great state of Massutwoshits has changed his position on off-shore drillin'."
 
 
 
 
AND THE LATEST FROM THIS DYSFUNCTIONAL, STUPID  BUNCH IS…….   
"My fear is if North Korea nukes us, Trump is gonna get us into a war."
Maxine Waters......2017
 
 
"We are all born ignorant, but one must work very hard to remain STUPID!"
~Benjamin Franklin~ (1706-1790)
 
 
 I am adding Nancy Pelosi's most recent quote: " You need to vote for the Democrats otherwise the illegal aliens will lose their rights"!

Saw her make this statement on the news the other night! What planet is she from exactly?

The Shape of Things: NC-11

Gerrymandering in North Carolina took away competitive elections and gave us extreme representatives like Mark Meadows.
All On The Line
The Shape Of Things: NC-11.


The district:
North Carolina's 11th Congressional District.

What's the story?
You're looking at what used to be one of the most competitive congressional districts in the country. Before 2012 (when the most recent maps went into effect), NC-11 was built around -- and, importantly, included -- the city of Asheville. Asheville provided a solid Democratic base, while the surrounding regions leaned more conservative. This meant close, hard-fought campaigns, with moderates winning tight races in the 1990s and early 2000s.

Then, the North Carolina GOP started manipulating the state's district map. They used their power after the 2010 Census to gerrymander the state, carving much of Asheville out of NC-11. By splitting Asheville, they diluted Democratic votes into two districts. This gerrymander was so blatant that in some Asheville neighborhoods, one side of the street stayed NC-11 while the other was moved into NC-10.

Help All On The Line un-rig districts like this across the country. Adopt NC-11 today with a small monthly donation and stand up to gerrymandering.

So what's happened to NC-11's congressional elections?
Since the gerrymandering, they're not competitive. Look at these voting margins:

2010 (last year with competitive maps): D+8.6%
2012 (new, manipulated maps!): R +14.8%
2014 (new, manipulated maps!): R +25.8%
2016 (new, manipulated maps!): R +28.2%
2018 (new, manipulated maps!): R +20.4%

It's bad news for North Carolinians who want fair, competitive elections that result in representative government ... not a government filled with politicians who win just because of the party listed next to their names, regardless of their extreme ideas.

What does this lead to in DC?
Those huge margins are more than numbers. They're an invitation to elected officials: You don't have to listen to your constituents. You'll be re-elected anyway. And that's exactly what's happened with Republican Mark Meadows -- one of the most conservative, extreme members of Congress who has somehow represented moderate Western North Carolina since 2012.

He's voted with President Trump 89% of the time, consistently going against common-sense policies supported by most Americans. He has:
  • Supported efforts to repeal Obamacare, ripping coverage away from millions;
  • Voted against requiring background checks for all gun sales; and
  • Scored zero percent from the League of Conservation Voters in 2018 for his record on climate change.
Gerrymandering hurts us all, giving us representatives like Mark Meadows who go to the extremes and don't represent America as a whole. All On The Line is fighting to un-rig districts like NC-11 nationwide. Adopt NC-11 with a monthly donation today.
