Here’s proof Trump’s supporters are members of a cult, not thinking Americans: 79 percent of Republicans approved Trump’s sycophantic performance at the news conference with Putin. 85 percent deem the investigation of Russian intrusion into our elections a distraction.
Americans appalled by Trump and his deluded and evil supporters must devote all our energy to giving the Democrats control of Congress — and the ability to restrain this treasonous thug.
To be a moral American in 2018 is to hate Trump. Turn that righteous anger into votes.
Until Nov. 6, we must stay fanatically focused on that — on registering voters, turning them out, and directing money to Democratic Party candidates. Let’s turn our hatred of Trump’s evil into victory for good.
Don’t count on Mueller to stop Trump’s attack on America. But elections do count. Ask Hillary Clinton. To stop Trump selling us to Putin, attacking the poor and putting children in cages we have to use our democracy. It still gives us the power through our ballots that can trump (no pun) even our power-hungry fake ‘president.’
Question for the young voters who didn’t bother last time: Does your discipline rise to the level of your discontent? Does your will?
A large-enough showing by younger voters opposed to Trump will overcome the forces of gerrymandering and overwhelm the Koch brothers. Will you vote?
Michelle Obama announced that her contribution to the midterms is building voter turnout. She understands there’s a lot of stand-up material but it takes us nowhere. Numbers of VOTES will decide our fate — and Trump’s.
Trump won the presidency because of only 78,000 ballots in three states. Our nation’s fate hinged on a margin that small. Every non-voter counted.
1 out of 2 young voters didn’t even bother to vote in 2016. They get a do-over this NOV. Work to get these potential voters to the polls!
In 2016, 40 percent of Americans who were eligible to vote didn’t. Clinton was much preferred by the youngest voters, ages 18 to 29. But fewer than 1 in 2 of them cast a ballot. If they don’t vote in a Democratic controlled Congress this NOV these young voters are traitors to no one more than to themselves.
We older voters had a pretty good run. The younger voters who don’t vote this time are more or less committing suicide. They are going to spend the rest of their lives cursing themselves and living in a fascist ruin of a once great nation.
The moral of Trump’s Helsinki treason and the lesson of his putting infants in cages isn’t only that Trump lacks any moral patriotic conscience, regard for our country or appreciation of history and our part in it. It’s also that this next election matters — immeasurably.
We all (young and old alike) got it wrong in 2016. We can get it right in 2018.
There’s only one way to contain Trump’s damage, and it’s both utterly straightforward and entirely effective. It’s called voting.
From now until Nov. 6, we must stay fanatically focused on voter turnout. Volunteer, donate, register voters, and then VOTE the sorry pig and his cult followers into oblivion.
