Dear Fellow Democrats: WTF is Wrong With YOU?

Dear Fellow Democrats:

What the fuck is wrong with you? Better yet, what the fuck are you waiting for? After almost two years of Donald Trump’s oppressive reign of terror we’re still wondering if you’re gonna go out and vote November 6th? That you still might not be motivated enough to replace the cowardly, complicit Republican-controlled Congress that enables this monster? Really? So again I ask, what the fuck is wrong with you? What the fuck are you waiting for?
 
Do you really need more reasons to vote? Is pussy-grabbing, sexual-abuse, pedophile-endorsing, Brett Kavanaugh, pathological-lying, disabled mocking, war-hero bashing, neo-Nazi-loving, Kleptocractic corruption and High Crimes and Misdemeanors not enough for you?
 
Do you not understand the gravity of this situation? Let me help you. In two weeks, if Democrats do not win back at least the House, American democracy as we know it is dead. Trump will no longer be a dictator-wannabe. With all concerns and fears about the election behind him, his dictator status will be official. He’ll be unchecked by Congress, unchecked by his Kavanaugh-inspired “president is above the law” Supreme Court. He’ll be empowered to consolidate power and misuse and abuse that power to advance his self-serving agenda and to further discriminate, bully and violate the Constitution. His rapacious ego will be out of fucking control.
 
There’ll be no stopping him. 
 
Attacks on his opponents will no longer be comprised of mere verbal threats. He will finally be emboldened to rule like the many foreign strongmen he perversely worships. He will attempt to “lock up” his detractors. He will limit free speech and freedom of the press. He will further weaponize the FBI and Department of Justice for personal protection and gain. He will sign even more outrageous Executive Orders, change regulations and circumvent existing law.
 
Because there’ll be no one to stop him.
 
Given this terrifying landscape, there should be no question whether Democrats will get off their asses and vote. There should be no doubt that Democrats won’t do everything humanly possible to get to the polls. That they’d crawl 10 miles in a blizzard if they had to. That turnout would be at historic levels, in the 90% range. But yet here we are. Fearing that Democratic turnout won’t be enough to flip at least one chamber of congress. Here we are, less than two weeks away, with the election way too close for comfort. Un-fucking-believable.
 
Democrats, make no mistake: there is no ‘next time.’ There’s no room for message-sending (like staying home because you’re fed up with politics). You have a simple albeit chilling binary choice: Democrat vs Republican. Democracy vs autocracy. Freedom vs oppression. Good vs evil.

Is this not enough? 
 
Trump has begged voters to make this election all about him. A referendum on his presidency. I say, let’s make his wish come true. Let’s go to the polls November 6th remembering how ignorant, divisive and corrupt he is. How he’s tearing the nation apart at the seams.
 
Democrats, you must accept that you are fighting an enemy that has done and will continue to do everything it can — including and especially lie, cheat, steal and engage in reprehensible racist scapegoating — to maintain power.
 
Because there is no one to stop them.
 
You can stop them. And the only way to stop them is by VOTING. Every vote matters. Your vote natters. Every…single…one…of…them.
 
We should be making history. We should have the biggest Democrat turnout in decades. 
 
There’s no excuse for not voting. There’s always time. Always a way to get away from work or the kids and get to the polls. Make believe you’re going out to buy a $1.6-million Powerball ticket. The stakes are much higher. 
 
And remember that your health, your future and your life depends on it.
