Listen now (16 mins) | It's a first in politics: two openly gay candidates running against each other for a House seat. But Republican George Santos is an election-denying Trumpist who supports the "don't say gay" law.
Bravo, Michelangelo! Robert Zimmerman is a long-time progressive who deserves to represent the 3rd District in Congress--a district in which I lived for 20 years.
Hi Michelangelo, it's John from Silver Spring, MD. I was listening to Zerlina this morning on the way to work and it got me thinking about how republieklans use fear as a motivatioin to vote. This is something the Democrats seldom do, other than the issue of abortion. Even in this late stage of a campaign, I would love to see ads with seniors struggling to survive, pre-Social Security, Medicare, etc. I remember hearing stories of seniors eating catfood and living in squalor... you get my point. Public schools and universities closed, in there place indoctrination camps, Christian Taliban Learning Academies.... Billionaires laughing at the rest of us as they through pennies from their balconies in Mar a Lago .... LGBT couples put in jail for marrying or living together... the frustration is real my friend~!
This election cycle is truly one for the ages. First we have two African Americans vying for Senator from Georgia of all places and now two gay brethren from New York where Progressive is near synonymous with the state. In both cases we have 2 individuals listed under the heading "Settin' us all back". Remarkable in that both extremist candidates are living, breathing tools of people intent on destroying Democracy. The gay brother really perplexed me in that he'll be the first example of the return of the pink triangle once the US slides into a Theocracy. The black brother is almost neck and neck with Unka Thomas of the Supremacist Court in the Benedict Arnold racial sweepstakes. Hard to believe in both of these contests that the progress we've achieved is drowned out by the fact that a antidemocratic party is inhaling all of the oxygen out of the room.
I have no respect for people like Santos who would take rights away from people like him. He has no ethics, no morals and no brains.
