COLD AND HARD

VOTE

Not voting while you have the freedom to do so
is an unforgivable act as far as I'm concerned. 
 Millions have died and continue to die  
for the right to be free and to be free from persecution. 
Millions in the world right now
yearn to vote, to choose futures for their children.

This caravan that 45 
is fear-mongering contains just such folks.
Common sense says people who are walking 
thousands of miles and have left everything behind
 and are carrying their children on their backs
 are desperately yearning
for freedom and a safe place to be.

Cold Hard facts.
We may not have most of our freedoms
for very much longer. 
Do not for one second think it cannot
happen here, the groundwork has been in the 
works for decades and this insane 45
is allowing it into the core of government
 and we need to elect people 
who will PROTECT 
and ensure the continuation of our founding
fathers values that have made this democracy work.
Please View

It's short about 7 minutes

Notice George Washington, 
the American flag hanging with the NAZI flag
young boys dancing gleefully
as a protester is beaten and stripped, 
attacking the free press...
Look and sound familiar?

From the Smithsonian about the film:
"It really illustrated that the tactics of demagogues have been the same throughout the ages. They attack the press, using sarcasm and humor. They tell their followers that they are the true Americans (or Germans or Spartans or…). And they encourage their followers to “take their country back” from whatever minority group has ruined it.”
I am resisting
 I am scared shitless
for my kids and yours.

I don't think I have ever been as frightened for our country as I am right now. We are in the hands of a crazy person and it must stop! I will watch the film. I have voted and I've encouraged everyone I know to vote. It is our only voice at the moment.

That film is terrifying!

I'm not religious, and I am praying today's election results indicate the tide is turning away from this hateful fear monger liar in chief.

I did my duty and voted and spent a very sleepless nite wondering if our democrat won. By a narrow margin, Jon Tester won and it made my day! Yay! Kit
