Our Squad is Big
The Election, the candidates, the process of electing a U.S. president – these are the most important matters facing us right now. These are the issues that will be covered here.
If you are not convinced that this is the most important matter facing us right now, see Squad, a short video of four U.S. Representatives speaking at a press conference in July 2019.
We are more than four people. We ran on a mandate to advocate for, to represent, those ignored, left out, and left behind. Our squad is big. Our squad includes any person committed to building a more equitable and just world. … We cannot, we will not, be silenced.
Ayanna Pressley, The Squad press conference, 2019–07–16
The Squad, in order of their speaking appearance at the press conference: Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Rashida Tlaib. Omar and Tlaib call for impeachment. The advantage of a late impeachment is that we would not need to endure Pence as president for long. I have alternative ideas about impeachment for the future which I will write about later in this series.
