Let's make a list: When you vote for a republican, you say okay to:...

I still keep hearing people make comments about "all politicians" and how "it doesn't really matter which party wins", and how "it's normal for republicans & democrats to take turns with the presidency & congress"..etc.

I always tell people that it DOES matter, because that ONE guy from Podunk, ANywhere, USA, COULD be the one vote that switches congress one way of the other, and legislation that flows from that switch could change YOUR life forever, or ruin you financially.


When you vote for a republican, you say okay to:...

rolling back regulation that keeps your food/air/water/soil/medicine/etc. safe..and in the areas of businesses, can mean life & death for you if you live near one

old white men (mostly) being in charge of women's reproductive rights/health care availability

old, angry white men (mostly) deciding which people are worthy of keeping voting rights

......
this is just a start..
please add to the list

4. They do not really want "riff-raff" going to college

and IF they do manage to get accepted, republicans want them mired in debt.

8. This repub won't end up anywhere

 

not even city hall. Our current DEM mayor is one of the "good ole boys", a popular former football coach. He's not going to lose.
But I am voting for the repub as a protest vote.

Also, there's no need for me to pay higher taxes on a car that is a year older. Also, the way they went about raising property taxes was shady. This admin needs to go.
