1. And this is okay

i really admire the people who are energized to keep fighting, but i am tired, disappointed, etc, etc, etc. i've been engaged in this battle since ronald reagan was nominated, and i am not sure i want to do it anymore.


It's okay. I personally feel like I shouldn't have to 'fight' for something I've had all of my life that is a BASIC right of all Americans in our Federal Republic.

I'm in NJ - it probably won't affect me either - at least not immediately. But it most certainly will by 2020.

It's easy to say - well 'gotv'. We can do that - we can get folks ids. Doesn't mean that Texas won't throw up some lame assed law two months before an election . . . because they can.

It's easy to say - well they will have to go back and legislate it. And who is going to pass it in the House?

So - it's okay. It's not giving up. And it's okay to feel defeated. And it's okay to have fun, and live your life, and enjoy life - and if you can't do that here . . . you can't do that here.
