No, you're not voting. You and the rest of the foolish, short-sighted, "I'm-so-revolutionary-I'm-above-this-voting-isht-crowd" are not voting. Those of us who care what the future holds are voting, and, yes, we're voting for Democrats. You want to let the crazy Republicans do more harm than they do now? Go for it. Just know that I'll be writing checks, registering people, knocking on doors, and teaching folks about voting regulations in their states until the polls close on November 8th. I won't see you, but I'm gonna try to see everybody else.

A great idea, but it only works if we target our moves strategically. We can't scatter to every red state at the same time; we have to pick and choose a couple of states at a time in order to have the most impact. I'd suggest Georgia, so we can solidify the Democratic presence there, and North Carolina, which is a state that's "on the bubble." Places like Florida and South Carolina are lost causes, so we shouldn't waste our presence there.

If you're one of those folks who's willing to do it, please, go, and do the rest of us a favor. Think of what we could do in 2024!

Yes. Organized religion in its many forms is the most potent form of brainwashing. I don't need to fear the wrath of an imaginary entity to know how to behave.

Capitalism is definitely the caust of much stupidity in the U.S. Most people truly believe the myth that anyone can be a millionare, and they equate wealth with intelligence.

Don't forget white supremacy. It is so potent that people will be willing to have their own potential quashed in order to quash the potential of someone who doesn't look like them. The profound loss of talent and opportunity we have suffered in this nation would be terrifying, if we only contemplated it.
