If you need a reminder about what happened then: “Protesters in California block busloads of immigrant children and families”; Washington Post, July 2, 2014
People have a way of showing their true colors. American conservatives for the most part have been doing that my whole life.
Want to change the world?
Then start by making sure your vote cancels out an opposing Republican vote and that your vote isn’t wasted…… no…….. worse than wasted……. that it doesn’t help to ensure more Republican rule at any level of government.
Because, like it or not, that’s the world we live in now, and this is how it works for now.
We’ll never get to the social, political, and economic changes we on the left want so long as Republicans are in charge. There’s only way to change that, and there’s only one Party today capable of bringing about that change.
So, let’s unify behind one strategy and the one and only Party as of now who can help us to win the war against conservative ideology by first winning the battles we actually can win like the Congressional midterms.
Peaceful protesting and voting is how we’ll change the travesty that is Trump and the GOP. The question is can and will the left put aside their differences to bring about that change?
Trump supporters are a minority of the voting populace. Remember, he lost the popular vote by over 3 million.
His and the GOP’s defeat begins in November and rests solely with the rest of us uniting to replace Republicans everywhere and at every level of government.
We all have to register to vote, and we all have to show up for every election; from township boards to school boards to borough mayors, and from city and county councils to state and federal elections every time and for every office.
Hold your nose if you must, but stop being childish about the choices on offer and the reality that is the present day two-party system.
If you don’t show up to vote and if you don’t vote for Democrats, you are helping to ensure that we’ll continue to have Republican rule that is, at this point in our history more than ever, about authoritarianism.
It won’t get better – and it will only get worse – if we don’t unite to change it.
I’ll be pressing one button and one button only this November.
What will you be doing?
