but first – my favorite fall video – 3 minutes
I don’t know about you, but I am so sick and tired of turning on the radio (mostly) or TV and hearing some hooey about “Republicans are going to win the mid-terms.” What a load of horse pucky. Such pronouncements are designed to do one thing: Discourage Democrats from voting. Do Not listen to this crap! I have even heard it on NPR.
I am of the firm belief that most Americans are aware that if they vote for Republicans they are likely to lose a lot including the right to a safe abortion, possibly Social Security and Medicare, the ability to have your vote count (Moore V. Harper in SCOTUS) and any possibility of having sensible economic policies. The list could go on forever. This is literally the election of your life time. Stand up and be counted or we will all face the consequences.
