We've watched how blatantly and aggressively the Establishment ignored democracy, voting rights and human rights. I feel many of us hold a fire inside now that can never be extinguished. We have to keep the others awake. We have to fight even harder now.

2022 we will come out and vote. We learned our lesson when the left doesn't vote. 2018 was the first midterm in idk how long that the left crushed the right in turnout. We know the importance of midterms now.

As long as we CAN vote. We need to do everything we can to block all the unconstitutional voter restriction bills Republicans are trying to pass across the country to suppress the vote of people who *will never vote for them.* This directly affects poor people and BIPOC people, both groups that the GOP has spent the better part of a century shitting all over. Stand with those people and make sure they can vote-who they vote for is irrelevant, all citizens have a right to vote.

@Jon O'Guin well, not to be that guy but, I see your point and I get it. I’d just see that as people that want more goodness and more decency, and like yeah there’s a lot of incessant bitching but overall I don’t see it as giving up.
Jon O'Guin
Jon O'Guin 16 օր առաջ
@Logan Franklin Not that guy, but I think he's speaking to a sensation of...frantic paralysis I've seen taking place in shared liberal-leftist spaces. Like, people on the left demanding "why isn't Biden doing more about X", when the politics of the moment literally don't give him anything to do. Sure, we don't like Biden putting kids in Overflow facilities, since we're basically just putting kids in NICER cages. But unless/until Congress changes our immigration laws/moves more money to handling those issues, that's the only move available. Biden, a Senator for decades, read the Senate and said "I don't think we're going to get the Minimum wage passed on the COVID bill". And I've seen leftist voices criticizing Biden for yielding the fight over the parliamentarian and Joe Manchin, saying the president should have forced Joe Manchin to either vote for something he said he wouldn't, or vote down COVID relief. Which...what's the gain, there? Are you willing to trade HR1 for a $15 minimum wage? Because If we push Joe Manchin on his fiscal conservative bullshit too hard, he can just call up Mitch McConnell and cut a deal to keep his seniority, switch parties, and boom, Republicans have the Senate. It would probably make his life hugely easier! West Virginia's like, 30 points redder than the country as a whole. It would be MUCH easier for him to run as "I used to be a Democrat, but they've gone too far" and never lose his seat. And yeah, it f*cking sucks that we have to accommodate a fucking 70 year old millionaire arguing that people in West Virginia don't want or need a $15 dollar minimum wage (which, in his VERY slight credit, might technically be vaguely true, in that, by my math (using some cost of living benchmarks), West Virginia probably wants somewhere in the range of a $13.50 minimum wage. Of course, I'd argue "slightly over is much better than vastly under", but that's not how you win over fiscal f*ckheads) So you have some left voices who are potentially being a little overly critical of Biden for some very foreseeable and expected shortcomings in the first two months of him being in charge, running into more centrist voices who are in the "Trump is gone, we can stop panicking", and creating rifts. Like, I've seen some people functionally falling into despair that, surprise, a reasonable President acting within his powers can't just change the entirety of the government before Spring. Which it's good we have people like Barathunde saying "Look, you can catch up on some sleep, that's perfectly fine. But the fight isn't over. We've just gained some ground." I can say "sure, we were never getting Manchin on board for $15...but let's not push him on that, and let him make some political hay out of putting his foot down and forcing the Senate to listen to him, and instead get him onboard for filibuster reform and voting rights. That makes it easier to pass the new minimum wage WITHOUT budget reconciliation, and everything else."

Voting isn't activism though. That's doing one thing every 2-4 years. In between those 2-4 years, we have corruption, absurd tax evasion by corporations, bombs being dropped in the Middle East for no discernible reason for our own safety or well-being, a health insurance crisis that is the embarrassment of the world, and of course mass shootings are back.

@Christine McCrea chuckle.........I never thought about it that way. My guess is that you want it to be an exclusive relationship and the "my" in this case is not necessarily about ownership but about distinguishing or differentiating. Relax into it sister. Life is too short. Big Hugs!

Human History has a list of collapsed civilizations. The stresses that caused these communities devastating fails are mimicked in today’s headlines. True and odd we scapegoat? In reality complex relationships, a web of cultures perpetrating guilty schemes. In plan sight, profit drives humanity’s dystopia. We are in lockstep marching toward sacrificed life for profits as unbridled consumption and the violence left in it’s wake destroys communities. And throws great numbers of refugees into the flux, starving and diseased people, further stressing societies unwelcome borders. There will be survivors, agile and deadly. Tribes of strong human beings willing to do atrocities to survive. Yes, we fight over scraps as our flooded poisoned planet is set ablaze.
