Alabama 2020 Elections (Pink Tsunami)

CW: Mentions of pedophilia, racism, homophobia, transphobia, and misogyny.

After a lengthy break from writing about electoral politics, I have decided to return to the fray so I can put my new knowledge to the test. I fully admit that I did not know as much as I do now about the political process, and I was still forming my new beliefs as I went along when I was writing my 2020 Senate pieces. I’ve decided that I may need a different approach to this series, so I’ve decided that I will write one piece covering the elections of note in each state. Granted I cannot guarantee I can write a piece for all 50 states, but I will try to take care of the most significant ones.

Also unlike last time, I’m waiting until the registration deadlines to write my piece so that they don’t end up hideously outdated in less than a year. Thus far two states have passed the registration deadline, and those are Alabama and Arkansas. Fittingly enough, Alabama is the first state in alphabetical order and has the earliest deadline, so both of these series will start with this state. Read more

Pink Tsunami: The 2020 Senatorial Elections – Part One

I’ve decided I’m going to make this piece preemptively this time. The last piece I made in regards to elections covered every Congressional and Gubernatorial election in 2018. While I know that my overall influence is limited, I want to do whatever I can for the rights of my kind and my allies so I’m going to split the subject matter up AND will do my best to prepare you all beforehand.

Additionally, I’m going to be talking about more than social issues this time. I’ve decided to focus on Senatorial Elections first because democrats have the House of Representatives and Democrats are significantly less shitty than Republicans (although still quite shitty). There is an increasing presence of progressive leftists with ambitious ideals and a genuine care for the well being of this country, it’s people, and the world around us.

There will be a total of 34 Senate seats up for re-election in 2020, 12 of those seats are currently held by Democrats while the remaining 22 are held by Republicans. Republicans have held a majority of Senate seats ever since 2014 and this has resulted in constant obstructions of any sort of social progress by then President Barack Obama, and they currently serve as the last line of defense towards the impeachment of current President Donald Trump.
