Dear White Women

Nov 20, 2019

Join Sara and Misasha in the Election Bootcamp Kickoff!

They’ve got questions, and they have some answers, and they’re not speaking as Democrats, Republicans, or unaffiliateds, they’re just focusing on the issues that this country is facing.

Are you fired up yet? Listen in for some passionate, thought-provoking conversation!

Show Highlights:

  • Sara gets put in the hot seat with some election questions!
  • Misasha points out that at the time this episode was recorded, there were a lot of unknowns, such as the impeachment inquiry. It’s difficult to not know what’s going to happen next.
  • The most important issue, of many, in this upcoming election, is immigration and how we look at our citizens, according to Misasha.
  • The United States is used to being the number one power in the world, but that could tank in the near future.
  • Sara believes that the most important issue, of many, in this upcoming election is women’s rights. 
  • Sara and Misasha discuss two recent cases of people being impacted by the same issue and then having opposing viewpoints with regard to supporting the President.
  • Tariffs, imports, and the effects it will have on consumers.
  • Farm bankruptcies are up this year, yet the majority of farmers support Trump. 
  • The latest statistics on how well the President is doing.
  • Misasha provides an impeachment overview and modern-day inquiries.
  • Misasha brings up a Washington Post article about Congressional Districts, and how little people know or want to know about what’s going on. You can get this article emailed to you when you sign up for their weekly email!
  • How Trump has damaged the image of the Office.
  • 42% of Republicans say there is nothing that Trump could do to lose their approval.
  • On Twitter, Trump referred to the impeachment proceedings as “a lynching”. This is a very offensive description, and Sara reads from Ida B. Wells's description of an actual lynching.
  • What are the questions we need to be asking right now in 2019 and going into 2020 to be able to make educated decisions and not just vote on party lines?
  • Questions to consider: 1) What matters to you? 2) What are you going to do about it?
  • Don’t miss next week’s episode “Election 101”!
