Two-thirds of the country supports Roe v. Wade, 2/3rds supports comprehensive gun reform, 2/3rds supports increased taxes on wealthy w/ expanded healthcare coverage, and yet 1/3 of the country is determining much of the path. This is tyranny of the minority in action.

Please don’t write off red states, or joke about letting us go. Women live in these states too and we have rights that need protecting.
