No infographic here. I’ve been wanting to make one on voting but I’ve been busy with school (story for another day), and to some extent work, but really it’s school for the win that’s eating up my time … and soul.
In the spirit of how I do things, this is going to be short. I didn’t get to make the infographic but the main takeaway of it was to vote. (No shit). I mean it though. If you’re voting by mail in ballot, you’ll be disappointed to learn that THEY DON’T COME WITH THE I VOTED STICKER *weeping emoji*. But however your voting, VOTE. Those of us voting by mail won’t get that sticker but hopefully the next 4 years can be our sticker.
Things at any given moment are only ever doing one of 2 things. Progressing or regressing. If you think that shit will just stay the same, you’re wrong. Nothing stays the same. Everything is either doing one of the 2 things I’ve just told you. So if you have to choose between things “not changing very much” or things “not changing at all (which is things getting worse at a slow enough rate for you not to notice)” choose progress, no matter how small. If you were hoping to vote for someone who’ll fix COVID, end racial injustice, figure out a plan for the fucking climate shit shows we’ve seen this year what with all the fires, put people who grab power in the supreme court on a time out, (RIP Legend: RBG) that candidate doesn’t exist, nor will they ever exist because that’s not how progress works. The best we can ever hope to have, is someone who’s willing to lead the country in the direction of a place, where things are better. Someone who’ll set good things in motion for the country and most importantly, someone who’ll fight for you. If an average Joe can make a difference, so can you. You’re a bigger piece of this election than you know, so don’t let anybody tell you otherwise. Vote. (Also, I know you saw what I did there).
