I never in a zillion years thought I’d run for office

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed this candidate in this race.

 

I never in a zillion years thought I’d run for office, let alone for president. But my life has had a lot of twists and turns, just like a lot of people’s.

Warren for President

I never in a zillion years thought I’d run for office, let alone for president. But my life has had a lot of twists and turns, just like a lot of people’s.

I grew up in Oklahoma. When I was in middle school, my daddy had a heart attack. We thought we were going to lose him. He made it, but he couldn’t work for a long time.

We lost our family station wagon. We almost lost the house, too, but my mother got a minimum wage job answering phones — and it saved our family.

But that’s not just a story about my family — it’s also a story about government. When I was a little girl, a full-time minimum wage job could support a family of three. But today, it would not keep a mother and a baby out of poverty.

Why? Because leaders in Washington set the minimum wage to boost the profits of giant multinational corporations — not to help families get a toehold in the middle class.

When we have a government that only works for the rich and powerful, that’s corruption, plain and simple, and we need to call it out and fight back. That’s why I’ve got the biggest anti-corruption plan since Watergate, and why all of my plans are really one plan: to put power in the hands of the people, not just the wealthy and well-connected.

Hi!

Hi!

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed this candidate in this race.

 

Hi! It’s Amy. It’s been a while since I’ve written to you, and I wanted to reach out because it’s Beto’s birthday.

Beto for America

 

It’s been a while since I’ve written to you, but I wanted to reach out because it’s Beto’s birthday. He is in Pennsylvania today, so the kids and I won’t get to celebrate with him in person. Instead, we’ll join volunteers and supporters in El Paso to celebrate from afar.  

It’s not easy to be apart on yet another anniversary (14 years this past Tuesday!) and his birthday, but the encouragement we’re getting from all of you makes it all worthwhile.

Every day I’m struck by all your dedication and enthusiasm. What I have seen on the ground in Texas, New Hampshire, and Iowa is remarkable. And I have loved following along via phone calls and social media this past week as he traveled through Colorado, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and Pennsylvania. There has been so much incredible energy and enthusiasm, and I know Beto has learned a lot from all of you who have been willing to share your stories. 

Keeping Beto on the road so he can meet as many people as possible and organizing the largest volunteer team in the country who will mobilize voters in November 2020 requires a tremendous amount of infrastructure and money.

Like you, I’m absolutely appalled to read about the President’s attempt to abuse his office to enlist ANOTHER foreign country to subvert our elections AGAIN. But, it isn’t just Trump that’s undermined our democracy and the rule of law. We also need to hold his Republican allies in Congress, like Devin Nunes, to account for their enabling and their emboldening of this outrageous, illegal behavior.

We know that the Republicans and the special interests will be giving Devin millions and spending millions more in dark money on his behalf. That’s fine – we don’t need to outspend them to beat them. We just need to organize!

Can you donate now and help us build our grassroots movement?

We have a MAJOR campaign finance deadline coming at the end of the month. If we don’t meet our fundraising goal, we might not be able to hire as many field organizers as we need – and we’re still short.

Thank you

Warren for President


Thanks for being a part of the conversation about how we can make big, structural change in our country.

For Elizabeth, the fight to level the playing field for working families is personal. When she was growing up in Oklahoma, her family barely hung on by their fingernails. Her dad had a heart attack when she was 12, and her mom saved their home by getting a minimum wage job answering the phones at Sears. Elizabeth graduated from a public commuter college that cost $50 a semester, and it opened a million doors for her.

She went on to become a public school teacher, law professor, United States Senator, and now a presidential candidate because she grew up at a time when America invested in kids like her.

But here’s the hard truth: America isn’t building that kind of future any longer. Today, the game is rigged – rigged to work for those who have money and power. And for some, the game has always been rigged against them.

Fear Overrides Reason; Only Love Can Override Fear

Fear Overrides Reason; Only Love Can Override Fear

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed this candidate in this race.

 

 

The technology that Cambridge Analytica deployed in the last Trump campaign is a military-grade psychological weapon. It was originally developed by defense contractors who deployed the technology in warfare.

Basically, this technology dismantles the higher functioning of human reason through propagandistic techniques. Traditional political strategies based on intellectual argument and emotional persuasion are not of themselves powerful enough to cancel out their nefarious influence. The military grade use of highly targeted personal data, some from shadow data brokers, is used to hyper-target, propagandize and trigger potential voters. The capacity to harness such data for political purposes is almost beyond imagining.

There is only one power greater than this kind of propaganda, and that is a higher brain functioning based on the human capacity to love. Fear overrides reason, and only love overrides fear. When I said that the president had harnessed fear for political purposes, I meant it quite literally. And when I said that I would harness love, I meant that too.

Love as a motivator and inspiration for human behavior is the only defense against radicalizing propaganda. It is not fluff, or weakness; it is in fact the only power great enough to override what the president’s team has already done and are planning to do next year.

Clear your mind for a moment and picture this:

You’re in Columbus, Ohio at the next presidential debate as the personal guest of Kamala Harris and our grassroots campaign.

You’re all dressed up, your flight and hotel were paid for by the campaign, and you see history in the making as Kamala makes her case to the American people for why she should be our next president.

Pretty great, right?

Well, it’s not just your imagination: if you contribute any amount right now, you will be automatically entered for a chance to watch Kamala at the third debate — flights, hotel, and tickets are on us!
