The strategy seems to be, if Trump can make American politics terrible and relentlessly negative, it will drive away moderates. If moderates don’t vote, his base will carry him to victory.
Elijah Cummings is such a good man, and such a strong leader. His whole life has been shaped by what he has had to stand up against. He is telling us to fight for the country, and we had better heed his warning. The antidote to all of this is to engage Trump’s racism and nihilism on a daily basis, shouting it down and shaming those who support this monstrosity of a presidency. If you’re not ready to fight back against this, I totally understand. I go days without being able to do anything as well. It is just overwhelming, trying to figure out how to tune in and engage what’s happening and spread positive energy and hope.
Make your plans to vote, and make your commitment a strong one. Support the candidates you believe in, and be ready for days and weeks of this shit.
