You must vote early and in person this year. It’s not enough to ‘just’ vote.
“In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger.” — John F. Kennedy, Inaugural Address, 1961
This is that moment. More than when the Civil War was on the horizon. More than McCarthyism. More than Watergate, which right now looks like a misdemeanor.
Yesterday was the worst day I’ve ever had. In the morning, four people — four people in the know — reached out with information that made me believe, for the first time, that all might be lost.
Make no mistake my fellow Americans. Make no mistake! Trump and those surrounding him have put everything in place to make sure this election never happens with integrity, or anything close to the will of the people.
Last week I had resided in the belief that perhaps the will of the American people, the majority of the American people, was not in line with what I want. As awful as that felt, I recognized my country is about majority rule. I thought about ways for me to live without having a heart attack if that was the case. Now I have come to realize that that particular scenario wasn’t my worst nightmare. My worst nightmare is that the will of the people might never be heard … or known.
Trump, and more shockingly, many of those around him, have put everything in place to make sure that this election has nothing to do with the will of the people. And there is only one way out for us. You have to vote early and you have to vote in person. It’s the only way to ensure your vote is going to be counted.
This is the moment in our history that Kennedy foresaw. Please don’t make the mistake of having to look back just over a month from now, knowing you could have gone just a little out of your way to save the republic. #VoteEarlyInPerson
