Soap box time: Today is an important day for progress in our country. You and I all generally like poking fun at backwards thinking rednecks. Well here is the deal, there is a strong possibility that those people have been completely tricked into voting against their own interests and could elect one of the most dangerous pairs of white people to power.....maybe ever. I know that Clinton is not the dream candidate for many of us. She is a politician. It's her job to tell you a finger painting is the Mona Lisa. There are few cases where a politician isn't corrupt, bought and incredibly self serving. She may be all of those things, but she isn't Trump. I woke up to a text from Ranae about how she was walking to cast her vote and a guy in a white pickup truck harassed her to the point where she had to cut through people's yards to escape. These are the people who support Trump. These are the people that coal roll minorities on the street with their trucks. These are the people that for some reason think they should have a say in what women do with their bodies. These are the people that are so afraid of trans people that they would NEVER take the time to possibly understand that just because someone was born a different way, doesn't mean they are the enemy or anything to fear. They are our brothers, our sisters and our families. If you care about progress, continuing our step toward helping taking care of the people who genuinely need some help from time to time, the fact that women deserve better than they have been getting since our country was founded, the fact that diversity in our country is what makes it a great place, then I personally ask you to consider giving a woman a shot at the presidency. She is much more suited than any of the other candidates. If that bothers you, then just vote Democratic for the sake of incremental progress. Let's be less embarrassed about the place we live tomorrow.
Congrats to @RiotFest for putting together the best festival lineup the US has probably seen since kids ruined music for everyone else. Rad!
