I get tired of people who saying voting doesn’t matter … and then bitch about politicians and politics. I have a rather simple philosophy:
Vote… or shut the f**k up.
And I am annoyed by folks who are Bernie supporters who say they won’t vote Hillary in November because they want Bernie or no one because, if you follow that logic and you don’t vote, prepare yourself for a President [t]Rump or a President Cruz next year. And then shut the f**k up about that, too.
Now, before any Bernie fans get twisted, I say the same to Hillary voters who say they won’t vote Bernie if he gets the nod. It plays out like this: the GOP wins when Democrats stay home, and we cannot afford a Republican in office, so you need to vote Blue.
Oh, you need some proof of that? Here goes:
Yesterday — on the heels of GOP Georgia Governor Nathan Deal’s veto of that so-called “religious freedom” bill — the Democratic Governor of Louisiana, John Bel Edwards, announced that he will rescind the sweeping anti-LGBT executive order his predecessor, Republican Bobby Jindal, signed into law last May that allowed businesses and state agencies to turn away LGBT people based on their “sincerely held religious beliefs.”
Yup, because people in Louisiana went out and voted Blue in their last election, the state’s Hate Law is done. Voting matters; voting Blue matters. And if you don’t, well then, shut the f**k up when things turn ugly.
