Stay Angry


This is a party that has no morals and they make no apologies for it. They support their White supremacist Congressman from Iowa. They support their Alabama senate nominee who was a known sexual predator. They support the nomination of an unethical man to the highest court in the land. Ethics be damned with the modern Republican Party. All that matters in staying in power.

Knowing this, knowing what we’re dealing with, means we’re in the fight for our lives. Norms are out the window. Scandals that would have otherwise crippled any Democratic administration are now out of the news cycle in a single day. Republican candidate for office caught having an affair? Fess up, apologize, find Jesus, and get your endorsement from the state party. From top to bottom, this Republican Party is rotten and they don’t care who knows it. The Party of Family Values only cares about your family if they’re rich and White. Other than that and you’re on your own.

So we fight like motherfuckers. We don’t sling mud but we sure as hell don’t let Republicans stomp all over us. We call out their bigotry in public places. We counter misinformation online. And we work like hell over the next 16 months. I’m talking work like we’ve never worked before. Talk to our friends and family. Talk to our mailman and barber and dentist and podiatrist. Make sure they know about local, state, and national elections. Make sure they’re registered to vote. Make sure our children are registered to vote. Make sure our neighbors are registered to vote. Find our people and get them involved. Talk to the local senior center to make sure they have rides to the polls. Talk to your local Democratic offices and make sure people know about early voting. Start all of this NOW so that when November of 2020 hits, we move out like the 70 million person army we need to be to crush these assholes.

Because make no mistake. The Republican Party will go lower. Their evil knows no bounds. They continue to protect their own and target who they perceive to be as the weak. It’s a slow march toward genocide that can only be stopped by us, the people. And it can only be stopped if we stay angry, pissed off, and motivated over the next 16 months. There are more sick fucks like Jeffrey Epstein out there, being protected by Republicans. We may or may not hear about them. But unless we remove this administration in 2020, we sure as hell won’t be able to shine the sunlight on them to disinfect them from the American political landscape. Remember how you’re feeling today, July 9th, and channel that anger into positive energy these next 16 months. Because that anger you feel today will be magnified exponentially on November 3rd, 2020 if this administration is allowed to continue in office for another 4 years.

Stop with the my candidate or else. I have a preferred candidate. Fact is come the primary I will vote for the one that is leading in the polls no matter who I prefer if I think they have a better shot. I want to win this because fact is we will not survive trump for another four years.

I was told back in 2016 after the election that it was okay. It won't be that bad, we can do this. It is only 4 years. Guess some had no care of the repercussions or the collateral damage. Our world standing. Embracing dictators that murder journalists and their own people. Embracing white supremacy. LGBTQ, forgotten. Native Americans, all POC, forgotten. Children in cages because of the color of their skin. Our environmental protections taken away. Then there are the women. The women that birthed every person in this nation, stripped of every right over their own bodies.

Leave your issues and your purity and your primary challenges behind. Get the hell out and vote and if you decide to do a protest vote in 2020 like you did in 2016? Then in fact you are the problem and have no voice in our future because fact is you threw it away.

Vote Democratic.

3. I don't know how to be anything but angry.

I am the bleeding heart liberal who believes life should be fair and I will fight my best as long as I can to make it so! Unfortunately I have recently had to face the fact that my health is failing and my activism has finally been effected by it...which makes me even ANGRIER!!!!! I am glad there are many who will keep the fight going for me and those who are with them in spirit, if not in person.

4. Hey, Bigman.

Sorry about your health curbing your activism. Mine is my moms. I have been doing 24/7 home care with my sister for almost two years now. I just can't. I have no time. I am there in spirit.

5. You have it rough...emotionally, mentally and physically.

Your mom is lucky and so is your sister. I doubt I will be around when my own mother will need that much help. I feel sooooo guilty that my sister will have to do it all by herself since my dad suddenly died in his sleep 3 months ago and he was as healthy as a horse too. Life is no picnic, especially when you have a corrupt govt making it even more difficult to survive.

6. I am so sorry for your loss.

I have to say that is exactly the way I want to go. In my sleep and no burden on anyone. Mom will be 93 next week. Her care and my sisters upcoming shoulder surgery means I get a twofer. Doubt that I will survive. No picnic.

Hugs to you and yours, Bigman. You take care of you. Got it? Good. Do it.
