Don’t believe the polls, pundits or anyone else when it comes to voting.
Nothing is assured.
Don’t be discouraged and don’t succumb to voter intimidation.
The vote is yours do not let others take it away from you.
Ensure your vote, VOTE.
Taking the long view of these United State shows unity has not been our strong suit. We’ve had our disagreements when one party or another has taken to the slinging of mud. Our hate for each other is just the way things are. Our hate for immigrants is the norm and not the exception.
Our hate for anything different has always been the norm and not the exception. Usually the other side will take the back seat when the one side wins. That’s been our precarious precipice for over two hundred years.
Today is no different than yesterday.
Change is only brought about by voting and protests.
Change has been fought. Many have died.
Society and technology may change but humans do not. We are tribal and we are selfish. Though once in awhile we’ll do what’s right.
I believe with the outside influences such as multinational corporations and is some way Russia, along with other countries, will keep us more off balance than usual. I don’t blame Russia since I believe they are much like us with their internal struggles and a leader who may still wish to win the Cold War.
The best way to affect change in our country is the old tried and true VOTE. It’s the numbers. Overwhelming number of voters will override those who wish to manipulate the outcome.
We must continue to make our country a more perfect union.
We can do it despite the set backs.
Let’s make our predecessors proud.
Our idealized past was made to show the world how wonderful we were as opposed to the Soviet Union. It was all advertising and we’ve come to believe it. Let’s look at our history and know the truth.

It is up to us.
Are we a government for, of and by the people?
Having a Congress, President and a Supreme Court who consistency act against the will of the people doesn’t sound like America to me.
Our president wishes to give the country to the lunatic fringe and give the keys of nuclear stability to president Putin. Doesn’t sound like America to me.
Our Congress only responds to the will of the dollar. Doesn’t sound like America to me.
Our Courts only respond to the will of Congress and trickle down dollars from them. Doesn’t sound like America to me.
Were we asleep?
Gerrymandering and unsecure voting machines have taken their toll.
Widespread manipulation via social media and network disinformation have shut out many. Have cause to fear.
Happily we attack and destroy one another.
Happily we watch our children deal with constant manipulation and wonder why they kill, why they hate, why they abuse.
We can’t handle the manipulation and the children can’t either.
We must look beyond party, race, religion and gender.
Step by step we are being taken apart by those who pledge allegiance,
by those who allow dark money to feed our politics and by those who kneel before foreign powers.
We have let others take our constitutional foundation and turn it into a mockery.
It is up to us.
We can stop this and we can make the change.
Your political party affiliation should have nothing to do with saving our country.
You know better.
We must push back against the bullies who lurk in our society.
We are better than this, than them.
We will not take the bait to be drawn into their nightmare. We are, our country is, better than that.
Let us get back to being part of this great world.
Let us commit to our statement to “achieve a more perfect union”
Let us remember that we are a nation of immigrants and our elders escaped tyranny for that hope.
We mustn’t devolve into evil.
We must take every option to restore our country that has been so long neglected.
It is up to us.
There are ways we can succeed and it requires effort.
Our country is always under construction. We’ve had our failures and our false starts and we’ve always moved forward.
It’s time to take that truly inclusive step.
We need an overwhelming tide of voters to show up to the polls in a week and a half, Tuesday, November 6th.
I think we all know what this is. Incite violence and demand civility. Fascist cowards, Standard Bullies, Projecting your evil onto others, etc., and etc.
This must stop.
Thank you Ed Mazza
Yes I have to jump in and state my opinion. Too many psychotics and it’s time for this to stop.
I’m not shirking my responsibility.
I don’t like that song “I’m only Human so don’t blame me” (even though it has a catchy rhythm) cause we are all somewhat, somewhere and somehow responsible.
The photo below shows some who might be a little more responsible than most. Certainly there are more people involved in the destruction of our society.
If you don’t get out and vote we could end up, again, with one of these.
Honorable mention Ronald Reagan the man, the myth, the legend who started it all
Good God People Get Out and Vote!!
Repeat after me, Populism Sucks!
…don’t believe the polls. Remember the many, many times when the polls said one thing and reality turned out to be totally different.
Don’t believe the hype.
You already know that it is up to you to search out the information on each candidate and each ballot initiative. No one else can do it for you. Once you are done you can make up your mind. You don’t need to believe or listen to the pundits, celebrities or politicians. Decide for yourself.
When it’s time to vote cynicism and apathy have no place in democracy.
Remember those who fought so hard to win the vote and today how many countries where voting does not exist.
Most elections this year will be held on Tuesday November 6th
We should not have billionaires paying for our infrastructure. Why? It is the responsibility of the government, the people, to take care of themselves. Having philanthropist donate money may hurt the development of society and it undermines the responsibility of society.
The philanthropist gets the glory of acknowledgement. What happens when the hype subsides, the money runs out, is illegal money or the philanthropist passes away? The people are left with nothing or worse with guilt and illegal money.
We have taxes and inspectors to take care of these needs.
If our government cannot pay for our infrastructure our priorities must be wrong.
Please do donate to help others but don’t donate for headlines. Donating for the glory of acknowledgement is taking and not giving.
Everyone is taxed and we all share the burden of society which is the way it must be.
