LISTEN: It has been axiomatic for over 50 years that the Republican minority in America only wins elections because most Americans don’t vote.
But Trump, and the GOP’s mean-spirited incompetence may have finally changed all that. Let’s not just defeat them. Let’s vanquish them. pic.twitter.com/tPjbCnQgRe

I want to urge all of us to check our voter registration status, especially if you live in either a Red or Purple State or (and I hate to say this) or if you have a hispanic surname:
In buying nearly 50 million records from the state with the nation’s second-largest Hispanic population, a researcher for the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity checked a box on two Texas public voter data request forms explicitly asking for the “Hispanic surname flag notation,” to be included in information sent to the voting commission, according to copies of the signed and notarized state forms.
Look, I know that we are months away from the mid-term elections, but the fuckery never stops. You want to do something about DACA? Then make sure you can vote. It will scare the living fuck outta wingnuttia.
Check your status NOW and get yourself ready to fight for your right to vote. Seriously, it might take a while to get all the documentation to re-apply and register, and that’s the Republican’s point. And remember, even Squiggy and Lenny Trump found out too late that they were not able to vote in NY in the 2016 Goat Rodeo.
And I know that long-time readers already know this, but: there is no excuse for not voting, there is no purity in that. No, you are not allowed to sniff that you are voting for the lesser of two evils because by that standard, then you are also voting for the Greater Good.
(And frankly, not voting is the ultimate in White Privilege: the out come might not impact you, but it damn well impacts others. If you don’t do it for yourself, then do it for the people who are gonna be hurt. A good Scissorhead ALWAYS votes.)
