Cold November Rain

If it turns out to be Biden -or- Bernie — as disappointed as you might be— please remember:

  1. You’re not just voting for President.
  2. You’re voting for who replaces RBG on the Supreme Court (if not more than that!)
  3. You’re voting for the next Secretary of Education.
  4. You’re voting for federal judges.
  5. You’re voting for the rule of law.
  6. You’re voting for saving national parks.
  7. You’re voting for letting kids out of cages.
  8. You’re voting for clean air and clean water.
  9. You’re voting for scientists to be allowed to speak about climate change.
  10. You’re voting for what a President says and does on Twitter.
  11. You’re voting for housing rights.
  12. You’re voting for LGBTQ people to be treated with dignity.
  13. You’re voting for Dreamers.
  14. You’re voting so that there will be Social Security and Medicare when you retire.
  15. You’re voting for veterans to get the care they deserve.
  16. You’re voting for rural hospitals.
  17. You’re voting so that someone else can have health insurance.
  18. You’re voting for the preservation of PBS & NPR.
  19. You’re voting to have a President who doesn’t embarrass this country every time he attends an international meeting.
  20. And you’re voting against allowing the USA to become yet another authoritarian regime.
  21. You’re voting for sensible gun laws (You don’t like “red-flag” laws? You should see what Trump’s been up to!)

The list goes on..

No politician is perfect.

Your first AND second choices may have dropped out. Your third might. But the nominee, no matter who they are, won’t be perfect. They won’t pass your purity test. And yet every single one of them will be better than four more years of Trump!
