Iím Voting For The Democrat In November Because Iím Not A Human Tire Fire

Great article about the importance of voting Dem.

Iím Voting For The Democrat In November Because Iím Not A Human Tire Fire

This is for anybody wasting time online blathering about how Hillary and Trump are the same; how if Hillary gets the nomination, they wonít vote at all; or how theyíre super-stoked to vote for a third party candidate because THEY HAVE PRINCIPLES, GODDAMMIT.

Hi. Iím your Auntie Sara. Time to wake the fuck up. If you are decent, you are going to vote for the Democrat in November. Not because you love Hillary (or Bernie, for whom I will vote if Hillary doesnít get the nomination!) Not because you love the two-party system (I donít! Do you? Thatís weird! We deserve better!) But because weíre dealing with brass tacks reality here, not our dreams.

No, I donít assume youíre sexist because you want to vote for Bernie. Of course not. I know many good and decent people, men and women and gender queer folks, who want to vote for Bernie, or for Hillary, or for Jill, or for ALMOST anyone but Trump. Yes, Bernie Bros are real. Yes, Hillary people can be annoying. Yes, any folks can be awful. I am not a woman who thinks everyone who loves a dude is sexist. I love dudes too! Sometimes ladies also! Sometimes folks who donít conform to gender! Anyway, read on.

When I was a tiny baby woman of 20, I loved Michael Mooreís assertion that Gore and Bush 2 were EXACTLY THE SAME, MAAAAAAAN. I loved this because he was funny and smart, this Michael Moore, in my opinion. I still dig Michael Moore, though only in part and not in an idolatrous way, because I have put away most childish things like blind devotion to anyone who says something that sounds good but does not bear up to actual analysis. He is a wonderful filmmaker and storyteller with whom I do not always agree. He has evolved and so have I.

8. Michael Moore said together we can stop Trump from being president, yes we can.

It would be a pleasure to leave him in Trump Tower, leave his nasty disparaging remarks begins sand be happy we do not have to gixftolqerate 5rhis mouth everyday. I used to think the worse president we could ever have was A but I think Trump would top him.
