I've been trying to find someone/ organization that's going to work on getting rid of republican fat rat McConnel. Here it is,  MOVEON to the rescue. Besides Trump, McConnell is the next BIGGEST POS that needs to go. I have signed up to make a monthly donation. I don't normally do this, but I feel it is sooo important and very worth it. I know not everyone can afford to, but if you want to read the email I received from them and make a one-time or monthly donation, I posted it below. McConnell's days are numbered! 

Dear MoveOn member,

We all know how important it is to beat Donald Trump in 2020.

But there's another race in 2020 that is almost as important—and now looks even more winnable:defeating Mitch McConnell.

Polls show that McConnell is the #1 most unpopular member of the entire U.S. Senate, with more than 60% of the voters in McConnell's home state of Kentucky saying that "it's time for someone new" to represent the state.1

Here's the challenge: Kentucky won't be one of the key battleground states in the presidential election. So if we're going to make a serious effort to beat McConnell, we'll need to staff up a whole additional campaign infrastructure in Kentucky just for his race—without sacrificing resources we need to defeat Trump.

 

We would love to take out McConnell, but we need to know right now if MoveOn members will be willing to donate the kind of ongoing, consistent money it'll take to staff up a campaign and win. So we've set a goal of bringing in 8,333 new monthly donors by June 30—the second-quarter fundraising deadline—to show that there is enough support from MoveOn members to take on this work. Will you chip in $5 a month?

Yes, I'll chip in monthly to help defeat Mitch McConnell.

McConnell openly brags that he's the "grim reaper" for popular House-passed bills protecting voting rights and cracking down on corruption in Washington.

Net Neutrality is supported by more than 80% of voters, but McConnell won't even allow it to come up for a vote.2

How about protections for the Dreamers, which are supported by more than 75% of voters? That passed the House of Representatives, but McConnell won't allow a vote in the Senate on that, either.3

But McConnell's most lasting harm is because of his hijacking of the Supreme Court. He is almost single-handedly responsible for stealing Merrick Garland's Supreme Court seat. Then, he changed the rules of the Senate to be able to ram through Neil Gorsuch. And when Christine Blasey Ford spoke out about being sexually assaulted by Brett Kavanaugh, McConnell made sure she'd be ignored and Kavanaugh confirmed.

Now, McConnell's Supreme Court is tearing through one decades-old precedent after another, and it appears to be only a matter of time before Roe v. Wade is gone.

Let's be clear: No race is going to be a bigger priority in 2020 than beating Trump. But even if that happens, as long as McConnell remains in charge of the Senate, we will make no progress on progressive priorities.

 

If we can add 8,333 new monthly donors by the June 30 fundraising deadline, it will show that MoveOn members are ready to put up the funding we'll need to both beat Trump and take on McConnell. So, what do you say? Will you chip in $5 a month to ditch Mitch?

Yes, I'll chip in monthly to help defeat Mitch McConnell.

 

Thanks for all you do.

I missed this one, droberts-your post I mean. I have had the exact same thoughts about Mitch the Witch Ditch and how to get him out of congress altogether.  I recently heard/read that Russia is planning to build a large steel mill in KENTUCKY - coincidence? I think not. I have followed the links above and hope others will also. Thanks for the info. and the link.
