Get politically active

I wanted to title this “Please get politically active” but decided against that. There is simply too much at stake right now to not get involved.

Tonight I attended our local Democratic club meeting and was so glad to be there. I was pretty drained and had a half dozen other things I could be doing, and decided to attend because I need to get involved. The group was deciding on who to endorse for our local school board election, an election that is super important even though so many don’t pay attention to school boards.

There are many ways to get politically active. First, make sure you are registered to vote and make sure your registration is up to date. Encourage others to do the same. Post about it on social media. Go to candidate debates and information sessions. Ask candidates questions. If they don’t answer your question keep asking. Write a check to an amazing candidate if you can. I assure you there are plenty of amazing candidates running in all sorts of political races this November.

If you are reading this, you are most likely on at least one social media platform. That means there is a good chance that you have seen constant posts against Trump and those who are complicit in supporting him and his administration. What is missing in most of these posts are attacks against policies and the impact of what Trump is doing. While many are posting memes and doctored photos against Trump, there is a long list of reasons why we need to get politically active and fight Trump and those electeds complicit in keeping him in power and his policies alive. Let’s actually do something that supports those complicit in the US House and Senate being voted out.

Thank you for reading.
