In one of the most incredible acts of bravery witnessed by this country in many year, Col. Alexander Vindman walked into an impeachment hearing amidst threats from the president of the United States to stand up for what it right and lawful in the United States. “Here,” he said, “right matters.”
Voters, remember you might not get everything you want with Democrats in power, but you will get NONE of what you want with MAGA Republicans in power. VOTE and make sure others do. An ounce of prevention as they say…#MakeRightMatter #Vote

After having experienced the absolute worst that the Republican Party has to offer – a criminal president, hysterical “tough guys” who scream and twist the truth in performative displays to cover for a criminal president (looking at you, Jim Jordan and Matt Gaetz), and elected officials who couldn’t possibly care less about the rule of law – Vindman has decided he’s going to back the party who agreed with him that right matters: the Democratic Party.
There are few Democrats, and fewer Republicans every day, who disagree with what Vindman is saying. Democrats aren’t perfect, but they do believe in democracy and they don’t support politicians who are comfortable with a man trying to steal an election. They don’t always agree on policy, but they don’t kick out members of their party for daring to disagree with the president. They have their issues, but they don’t elect people like Steve King or Donald Trump. They don’t always get it right, but they don’t believe that wrong is right when it benefits the party.
Twitter had a lot to say to Col. Vindman. Read some of their comments below:
