"Fifty years ago, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and many other leaders launched a Poor People’s Campaign to tackle the pervasive problems of systemic racism, poverty, and militarism. By many measures, these interrelated problems are worse today than they were back in 1968. And if you add in climate change and ecological devastation, the urgency is even greater."
RootsAction, an online initiative dedicated to galvanizing people who are committed to economic fairness, equal rights for all, civil liberties, environmental protection -- and defunding endless wars, has produced 'Trump Articles of Impeachment,' a growing work in progress (as of 10/17/2019).
This work details 25 areas where the conduct of President Donald J. Trump rises to the level of 'high crimes and misdemeanors' that should initiate his removal from office.

TUESDAY MAY 8, 2018 NORTH CAROLINA PRIMARY ELECTIONS
Primary Voter Turnout for Non-Presidential Years since 1990 in North Carolina averages a little more than 17%. This year's turnout was 14.35%. Not a very participatory democracy by any stretch of the imagination. This is my polling place that day (I was the only person inside the poll voting @ midday, 2pm or so).
Isn't it hard to imagine illegals voting when 85% of the legals don't? Certainly is for me. The claim of voter fraud is one large unsubstantiated lie perpetrated by politicians to suppress votes.
What does 14.53% turnout tell us?
The poll in the photo above is in the 4th Congressional District of North Carolina, a heavily gerrymandered Democrat district.

The Mid-Terms of 2018 are 90 days away, Tuesday November 6th.
As dysfunctional voting systems exist and abound, voter suppression tactics expand, Special Counsel Robert Mueller continues with indictments of Russian hacking / social media fake outlets and bots, and multitudes of lawsuits by both political parties go undecided by the Courts, enjoy part II of the 'rigged' 2016 election cycle.
