What we can all do at this moment is vote — get up, brush our
teeth, go to the polling place, and get in line. I was never in
combat as a soldier, but now I am. Those of you who haven’t quite
been getting to your polling place lately, who want better
candidates or a clearer system of making yourself heard, or who
just aren’t in the habit, need to get it done this time around.
If you stay home, count yourself among the hundreds of thousands
now being disenfranchised by the relentless parade of
restrictions that Republicans everywhere are imposing and
enforcing. If you don’t vote, they have won, and you are a
captive, one of their prizes.
