Democrats Launch Massive Voter Registration Drive To Turn Texas Blue

Democrats Launch Massive Voter Registration Drive To Turn Texas Blue

One of the biggest criticisms that we here
at Ring of Fire have had about the Democratic party since Ring of Fire launched in 2004,
was the fact that Democrats were always a little too willing to roll over. They weren’t willing to get down and dirty
and really fight back against Republican corruption. Well, that’s starting to change and one of
the people leading the charge to change that, to turn the Democratic party into a party
of fighters is Stacey Abrams, the former candidate for governor of the state of Georgia. Who should have won that election, had Republicans
not rigged it, but rather than hang her head and think, oh, woe is me, I got cheated, I’m
going to whine and complain. Stacey Abrams didn’t do that. Stacey Abrams, after realizing how badly she
got screwed, got angry and decided I’m going to do something about this, it may be too
late to save me, but I can save so many others and I can change the face of this country,
and she’s doing that with her group Fair Fight 2020. And right now, Fair Fight 2020, has launched
voter registration drives in 20 States across the US, 20 States where their goal is to register
millions upon millions of new voters. One of the places where they are focusing
a lot of their efforts right now is the state of Texas because as we’ve seen, Texas might
be a little bit more in play than Republicans would be comfortable with. State also hasn’t elected a Democrat to a
national office since 1994, so it is a Republican stronghold. But with the Beto O’Rourke versus Ted Cruz
race, we saw that it is possible to change that. And so Stacey Abrams and her group, along
with some other democratic groups down there in the state of Texas and a couple of national
democratic groups, they have a goal of registering more than 3 million new voters in the state
of Texas in an effort to, if not turn it blue, at least turn it a deeper shade of purple. They want to end the Republican stranglehold
on that state and the damage that Republicans are doing to that state by letting corporations
exploit every inch of land. And that’s what they’re doing. They’re doing it in Florida. They’re doing it in Georgia. They’re doing it in these deep red States
that two years ago even I would have told you just fricking abandoned them, there’s
no hope. But now there is hope and Stacey Abrams is
one of the few people out there giving us that hope. And it’s really sad that it, she had to go
through what she did with that Georgia election. She should be the governor of Georgia. I mean, it’s plain and simple, she should
be the governor of Georgia. But maybe that loss was necessary in order
to better the country. Right? It’s like the old saying, whenever God closes
a door, he opens a window. Well, for Stacey Abrams, he didn’t just open
a window. He knocked down the side of the house and
said, this is yours. Go out there and do what you need to do and
she is. Stacey Abrams is a fighter. Stacey Abrams is absolutely amazing, and if
her group is successful, then we can credit 2020 victories to Stacey Abrams. She deserves it.
