My motto of the day: Fuck you, vote Democrat.
Why? Glad you asked, me, because I usually don’t endorse straight ticket voting, even those times when I did it out of laziness. But this asshole needs some checks put on his power and the Republicans are far too comfortable abiding him so long as they get their tax cuts and deregulation. Are they enough? Good followup, Me2. I can only say I’m hoping they are. I mean, are they GOOD enough? As in progressive enough? I’m not satisfied, no. But then, a lot of people say they’re “too extreme”. That’s why perspective isn’t just a word.
What it comes down to is this, they’re the only viable anti-Trump ticket in town. They are the voice of protest, and the voice of possible action. What point is there in a protest vote against the protest ticket? To what end should one demand more action when refusing to vote for the only possible action at this moment? In short: Fuck you, vote Democrat.
And while I’m here, a quick rundown of the other arguments…
“I wish they were more progressive.” Me too, but right now they’re the only thing less regressive than Trump, so vote Democrat. And if that’s too complicated, how about: fuck you, vote Democrat.
“What about third parties?” There’s a time for that conversation. But today? Fuck you, vote democrat.
“The system is rigged.” It’s easier to rig a close one than it is to turn back a landslide. In other words: Fuck you, vote democrat.
“I’m a Libertarian. Liberty or death, no compromise.” Be still my beating heart! Sweep me into those muscly arms so I might whisper into your ear: Fuck you, vote Democrat.
“I’m an independent.” You’re redundant. Fuck you, vote Democrat.
“I may register one way or the other, but I’ll vote for who I think is right, regardless.” Such a maverick! Fuck you, vote Democrat.
“I vote for candidates, not political parties.” So brave! Fuck you, vote democrat.
“I think everyone needs to be judged on merits, not affiliations.” So wise! Fuck you, vote democrat.
“Democrats are liars.” So what?! Fuck you, vote Democrat!
“I vote my conscience.” If your conscience isn’t telling you that Trump is the worst rot we’ve seen in a century then fuck you and your conscience. (And vote democrat plz.)
