Is Ruben Gallego The Most Important Person in America?

Yes.

Yes he is.

Here’s why.

The ONLY way to get what most young people, and most Americans want, is with Ruben Gallego.

There is no other way.

Young people, and most Americans, want to restore Reproductive Rights. This can only happen if Ruben Gallego is elected to replace Krysten Sinema as Senator from Arizona.

Young people, and most Americans, want to enhance background checks for gun purchases. This can only happen if Ruben Gallego is elected to replace Krysten Sinema as Senator from Arizona.

Young people, and most Americans, want to restore voting rights for all Americans. This can only happen if Ruben Gallego is elected to replace Krysten Sinema as Senator from Arizona.

Young people, and most Americans, want America to create a renewable energy economy and renewable energy jobs, reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and fight even harder to combat climate change. This can only happen if Ruben Gallego is elected to replace Krysten Sinema as Senator from Arizona in the November 5, 2024 national elections.

And so many other things can ONLY happen because of this, the most important person in America!

Here’s how . . .

There is this absolutely anti-democratic, ridiculously stupid thing called “The Filibuster”. No one in the media thinks you are smart enough to understand it, or to care about it, but I do. And I’m going to explain it really simply right here.

You need to know this.

This stupid thing, The Filibuster, is a random Senate rule that says that WHENEVER ANY ONE of the 100 Senators is opposed to a particular bill and initiates “The Filibuster”, NO BILL can pass, or even be debated, unless and until 60 Senators agree to some other stupid thing called “cloture”. Cloture stops the Filibuster and allows debate and a vote . . . with just a standard, bare majority of 51 . . . on the bill that had been blocked.

But with 51 Democrats and 49 Republicans currently in The Senate, there will almost NEVER be 60 Senators to invoke “cloture” and stop Filibusters from preventing votes on the controversial things that Democrats and most Americans want.

So, we’re screwed, right?
