Toplist Points 0 == Toplist Rank [50.000+ (bad)]

It’s possible to be critical of Biden and Harris while ALSO emphasizing that YOU NEED TO VOTE FOR THEM. Most people I see complaining either explicitly say they won’t vote or don’t offer any support. THIS IS BAD. This is what gets passive voters to see all the critiques and think that they’ll be just as bad as the current Republican administration. THIS IS NOT TRUE!

Yes, Biden and Harris are very flawed. They’ve both done a lot of bad in their history. No, they’re not the candidates any of us were hoping for. But they aren’t literal fascists who are actively trying to kill everyone but the 1% and they will likely actually work to get covid under control in the US when the virus is still raging. I know we were hoping for more progressive candidates but this is what we’ve got.

If you want to push the Democratic Party to be more progressive, find your local candidates to get excited about and VOTE THEM IN! There are so many people running for Congress and Senate that can do some actual good in the world if we get them elected. They can draft legislature that can actually get approved if we have a Democratic president and majority in both the House & Senate. Most importantly, they can work to keep Biden and Harris in check. That’s the point of the three branches: checks and balances. So find a local candidate to get excited about, donate to their campaign, tell people about them, and vote for them!

Be critical of the President and VP candidates, yes, but for the love of god do not discourage people from voting. I remember sobbing election night 2016 because I was terrified of a Trump presidency and we’ve seen the outcome of that. People have literally died because of it. A lot of us will not survive another four years of this so PLEASE VOTE BLUE. ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO VOTE BLUE. DON’T BE A DICK.

Hey. Hello.

I am monumentally tired of fighting. But I’m going to continue to do so for as long as I can.

Right now I am seeing long-time followers attack Kamala Harris and Joe Biden for picking her as a running mate. I know a lot of people look at this duo and see “more of the same.” I’ve seen so many intelligent people saying they are not going to vote.

It is absolutely critical that you vote the Biden/Harris ticket. I want you to remember that while you are pointing out the flaws, and here is why.

The current president is literally a fascist. He’s slow-burning, meaning he’s slowly moving the goalpost farther right. The only reason he’s slow-moving is because the Republican party still has the barest semblance of a conscience. Think of what would have happened if #45 said “we should delay the election!” and McConnell said “yeah okay that sounds cool.”

Do you know how terrifying that is? Because if he got congress to delay the election somehow, there would be no reason to ever have a federal election again. He could just keep delaying it forever.

“But CK,” you say. “The constitution says we can’t delay a presidential election!”

Checks and balances say a lot of things. Checks and balances say that bills are supposed to be voted on and go to the president for signing or veto. Currently McConnell has found a loophole and just has 400 bills sitting on his desk, ignored.

I want you to keep this in mind: Under fascism, the constitution does not matter. They will find a way around it. They’re trying to find ways around amendments, too, poking and prodding at free speech until they can find a way to shut it down.

And if #45 decides he doesn’t want to play anymore, he’s got a whole fucking army, and he’s just proven that the secret police he has in his employ will do whatever the fuck he says. I need you to recognized that this throwing people in Portland into vans thing wasn’t the ultimate violation of freedom. It was only one step in a massive authoritarian takeover. You cannot trust the secret police to do the right thing and say no. #45 has just proven they’ll listen to him like trained dogs.

He has already started talking about more terms. If he discards the constitution, there will be nothing stopping him from taking them. He’s currently, blatantly trying to rig a free and fair election. This has happened in other countries across the globe, and the same people who are posting “NEVER VOTE FOR BIDEN” are the same ones who post things like “JUSTICE FOR _______” when a despot steals an election.

If the incumbent president wins another term, this will be the last election we have. This will be it. This is how fascism works. This isn’t slippery-slope talk. This isn’t “potential worst case scenario.” We are in the middle of the worst case scenario now.

Please. For the sake of the millions of people who will die under #45. For the sake of people who cannot survive another 4+ years. Think of Biden/Harris as a road block. A barricade. Right in the middle of the road. It stops traffic and doesn’t do anything to get people where they’re going, but at least it stops them from careening off a bridge.

If you never want to have to make this choice again, you have to fight to abolish the US’s First-Past-The-Post voting system, but it is TOO LATE to do that now. No third party candidate can win. Study the election results from the last 40 years and you’ll see.

Please. Wise up. This is our last chance.
