If you’re homeless there’s no fucking difference between Democrats and Republicans. If you’re in jail there’s no difference between Democrats and Republicans. If you’re killed by the cops, a Democrat mayor and a Republican governor will display the same contempt for your memory.

The difference between a blue state and a red state is if a white employed trans person feels safe or not. That’s not good enough for a party to deserve your support.

the same machine grinds people up for profit and the only difference between the parties is which order people get ground up in

@kate Not quite. Currently it's between those who want to keep you subjugated and those who want you eradicated. Both need to be fought. But one fight is much more critical.

@kate Not just the order, the rate. A system that grinds people up is obviously evil and needs to be abolished, but in the meantime, slowing the rate at which people are fed into the grinder even a little bit is still worth doing. And having Democrats in power makes it easier to convince people that they're not the solution.

@SallyStrange @kate

If you're in another party being punted back and forth by those two like a damn football there's no difference either. :P

@kate

Clearly what's needed is more representation in our leadership.
This two party system has failed us miserably, since both parties are now controlled by the monied class.

With both parties suppressing the creation/implementation of third, fourth, fifth or more parties, seems we have no options. Which is exactly their goal.

They are pushing us into an extreme response.

@504DR @kate clearly what’s needed is no leadership, as it’ll never be able to achieve representation or anything else meaningful beyond the perpetuation of their own status as leaders

@kate so keep electing/giving GOP power to stop progress and see how that works out for any of the groups you mentioned.

@kate and that white employed trans person is only safe because the democrats haven't got around to fully selling them out yet
