The midterms are just 13 days away (16 hours, 20 minutes and 53 seconds, but who’s counting). The president is out there blaming the Democrats for the migrant caravan, which he claims is a terrorist organization. He calls Democrats “an angry mob.” (angry, yes, violent, no–we’re the anti-gun party, remember. We don’t even know how to use a gun). The garbage spewing from this sad and pathetic human (and I use the term loosely) is a non-stop festival of lies. Lies. Untruths. Human waste. And yet, if you say something, anything over and over and over again, people will believe it (ever heard of that guy named Hitler).
And so, as a Democrat, I give money (while I work at my computer) to the tight races, in hopes that we can flip the house (I’ve been flipping off the house for two years). And yet, I can’t help but wonder if we do win, if the GOP, lead by the head elephant will somehow delegitimize the election. In fact, it’s already happening. You know how this man hates to lose. So, get out your goggles and umbrellas, because the lies are coming your way faster than the wind of a hurricane, cat. five.
But for any of you living in fear like I am, there is this: more people didn’t vote for Trump than did. When despair comes lurking, I have to remind myself that I am not alone in despising the blatant lies, bigotry and inhumanity of this administration. There are lots of us. We are not by ourselves. (And I am grateful for every one of you!) We are strong and we are out there. And we are going to the polls to try and right the ship.
This makes me feel 10% better. Thirteen days. Please vote.
