vote-a-tude-a-thon day 2037: if you care, vote



It’s a game, but saving our future is not. Please, pretty please, vote.


I feel the cast of Riverdance in the center of my stomach. I am nervous like I was about to parachute out of a plane at 10 million feet (which I could never do). I am biting my cuticles, waking in the middle of the night, cuddling my dog so much, he thinks I’m bringing him to the vet. This election has me wanting to dive into a vat of potato chips and eat until I can’t think anymore (hey, that actually sounds sort of fun…..).


Every single vote matters. Don’t take yours for granted.


In my lifetime, never has there been a more important election. Some of you would say that I’m overreacting, as I am wont to do, but nuh-uh, this is the real thing. This is the difference between accepting a leader who blatantly and continually lies to the public about important things, so much so, that a certain amount of our population believes him. This is about the encouragement and support of hate from the top. Come out, come out wherever you are, bring your guns, bring your bombs, and go to it, presidentially approved. This is about blatant racism and bigotry. This is about nationalism and neo-nazi-ism and anti-semitism and all the other ism’s there are. This is about the end of civility and morals and the beginning of a dark and ugly period of history. This is about a rejection of climate change–and if you have children or grandchildren, the rejection of the thoughts of what this planet will be like when you are gone and they are here. This is about women being in charge of their own bodies. This is about democracy.

This is about your life and the lives of everyone important to you.


Your vote is important. So is your voice.


There are three days left to decide who you are going to vote for, if you are going to vote, what you are going to do to save democracy. Remember that Trump did not win the popular vote. I am begging you to create a plan to make your voice heard, even if your voice wants to scream “fuck you, Donald Trump, let it scream with your pen at the polls.

Your vote matters. It matters to us all.
