#1 Today’s the day. To the countless supporters, door-knockers, organizers, small-dollar donors, and everyone in between – thank you..This journey has been one of the most challenging and rewarding collective efforts I’ve ever been a part of. We haven’t just run a campaign – we created a movement in our own backyard. We built community. We centered issues that no one wanted to talk about. We uplifted our neighbors and discovered a level courage + friendship we never thought possible..Thank you to everyone who has been a part of this journey and followed us along to this moment. No matter what happens, this is just a beginning. Let’s continue walking shoulder-to-shoulder in the advancement of economic, social, + racial justice in the United States of America.

"There is a systemic issue here, and that is the modern-day colonial relationship the United States has with Puerto Rico." . For so long, it's been "taboo" in mainstream circles to call Puerto Rico a colony of the United States. Today I said it live on CNN. Twice. It was an important moment to me - to start talking about colonialism not as a vestige of history, but part our present day actions that we must move to amend. . A lot of well-meaning folks think the answer to this is to take a stance for Puerto Rican statehood or independence. But it is not the place of a colonizing nation to decide status for the colonized. If you want to help Puerto Rico, fight for legitimate and binding self-determination of the island. . People sometimes bring up the point that PR has already had status referendums. These plebiscites have not been binding - which means their results have not been honored. A binding plebiscite means that when Puerto Ricans vote for an outcome in a free and fair election, they will get it. So as US citizens, push back against predetermined status agendas and fight FOR the ability of Puerto Ricans (& ALL U.S. territories) to determine their own destiny. . PS: 1 year anniversary of Hurricane María is this Thursday. Join me with @uprosebrooklyn, @blackpuertoricanphd, @yeampierre, @officialnaomiklein & others in Union Square THIS THURSDAY in national solidarity. Puerto Ricans lie squarely at the intersections of Latinx, Indigenous, & Black identity - not to mention food + climate justice, peace issues, and more. Solidarity here is important because it strengthens our bonds across oceans and deepens our commitments across communities. We hope to see you there. . Pa'lante, AOC

Written by top40

If anyone is interested I am Top40 online. In the real world my name is David Russell Ellenberger. I am a SWM 57 and live in Louisville, Ky. I started Internettop40.com about 4 years ago. I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted the website to be about but I liked the idea of people voting on items in ranked lists. The voting on these ranked lists will move the items up or down in the rankings you vote by clicking the + or - buttons below or next to the item in a list, refresh the page and the item will then appear in it's new ranking. IMHO voting really is one of the most important things you can do. Your vote is literally worth millions of dollars and that's one thing the politicians want you to do but don't want you to think about in that way. In other words vote for me I'm the best and I'm for this I'm for that I am for all the things that you want and that's why should vote for me. In reality what its about is control over you and money. So next time you vote you should demand to get paid. But I digress that's voting on items is just one of the reasons I started Internttop40.com. I also wanted to get my point out to the people and hopefully other people will want to use my website to get their point out or at least create their own lists. I had hoped for this to be another social media website. That hasn't really happened and I have been online for almost 5 years now. More about that later.

 

Everyone thinks just put your website up and they will come but that's not really the case. Part of the problem is search engines like Google have almost complete control of the web and all the traffic on it and they want you to pay. They also don't like other social media sites or search engine type sites they are what's known in the business as viral sites or sites that mostly contain links and not much original content which is exactly what Google is. But I maintain that links are part of the branding and the way you show your links to the world is an original aspect of any website and part of the branding and is orginal content in and of itself. But Google doesn't think so, Because that's what they are and they of course want complete control and they have it and no one seems to care. I didn't care until I started this website. But again I digress.

 

Back to the point. Why I started this website. Well another reason was to make money you can sell things or you can put advertising on your website. You can go out and sell advertising yourself or simply sign up for advertising services that have already sold the advertising and put the ads on your website for you. Services like this from Google and it's advertising service called adsense. If you read up on the internet how to make money with a website You will eventually find Adsense and various websites will tell you you can make tens of thousands with website adverting its so easy. And that may be true just from a numbers point of view but then reality sets in. More coming in a few days. Thanks for reading....
