Besides the Republicans, I mean.
We need you, we need ALL OF YOU. Every last single one of you. I don’t care if you turn eighteen on November 6th- get your ass to your local polling place and vote like your life depends on it, because IT DOES.
I know I sound like an alarmist, but I’m not. After two years in office, you’ve seen what that tangerine lunatic is capable of, and he’s literally losing it on a daily basis. He doesn’t have any grasp on reality whatsoever, and at his age, that ain’t good. It’s even worse being that he’s the President.
But Trump isn’t our only problem- it’s the GOP, too. They are pretty much using Trump to push through their garbage agenda. Pretty soon, abortion rights, gay rights, women’s rights, the environment, they’ll all be in the toilet. Unless you’re completely blind, you can see it happening already. Hell, you can feel it.
I ain’t gonna lie to you. Do I expect the Democrats to save us? Hell no! But at the very least, they can put the brakes on that orange ape and level the playing field.
As a wise man wrote last week, “The sad fact is most millennials will not vote.”
What they don’t understand is this: Not voting IS voting. Not voting IS voting to remove Social Security and Medicare from their future well-being. Not voting IS voting for dirtier air and water and accelerated global warming. Not voting IS surrendering their future to eternal war with Wall Street and corporate rule, sprinkled with racial discrimination, evangelical puritanism. Not voting IS driving another nail into the coffin of democracy.
But they have cool apps, “likes,” and games on their screens. So what else matters?
“Have a great future, kids. Just don’t say we didn’t warn you.”
I don’t think I could have put it any better than that.
Listen, I was young once. I know what it was like to cruise through life without a care in the world. But when it came to doing my civic duty, I did it. Enthusiastically. If you truly don’t think your vote matters, it does. But you can’t do it alone.
One person screaming can be ignored, tens of millions of people screaming can be heard for miles and miles.
In my last article to millennials, I was trying to anger you all into voting. I honestly thought that trying to inspire you was a waste of time because I didn’t think you would listen. A lot of you got pissed off at me, but I did what I thought I had to. I’m not asking you to vote to save us. I’m asking you to vote to save yourselves.
The time has come to take a stand. The time has come now to draw a line. Time to stand for what you believe.
