an honor and an obligation

I don’t drink on weekdays but for the last debate my roommate let me finish her glass of wine in lieu of taking shots. Nobody respects women more than Donald, as perfectly demonstrated when he interrupted Hillary’s allotted time to call her “such a nasty woman.” Twice.

But even more irritating than Trump or his supporters are the people in this country who are capable and available to vote and don’t. “I’m just one person.” “Both candidates are equally bad.” “I have better things to do.”

What’s wrong with everyone! America is a democratic republic turning into a plutocracy. We should be grasping onto any vestiges of genuine democracy while we can. I’ll still be recovery from surgery on November 8, and it was a privilege to fill out and mail in an absentee ballot. Exciting even! I was actively participating in civil service!

VOTE DAMNIT.
