Don't Just Vote Biden, Shout That You Did!

I just put up these two posts on FB posts, and I am also sharing them here.


First:


I don't know how this election turns out. I'm skeptical of polls. I am going to say this as clearly as I can.


If you are voting for Biden, SAY IT. If you are a conservative voting for Biden, SAY IT. If you are a libertarian voting for Biden, SAY IT.


DO NOT spend your days and nights posting against the left, and secretly vote Biden, while imagining you have met your moral obligation to help preserve our democracy. If you truly believe Trump is an existential threat to our democracy--and he is--SAY IT. Put your WORDS where your VOTE is. People are paying attention to YOU. AND TIME IS RUNNING OUT.


I hope that's clear.


Second:


One more: People imagine that if Trump wins, it's four more years and then it ends. WRONG. If Trump wins, and if he lives four more years, Ivanka Trump will be elected in 2024. This isn't a fantasy. I guarantee it. Mark my words.


This election is the only opportunity to end this nightmare and to preserve our democracy. I am a moderate. There are lefty things that trouble me. But what needs to be restored are our political institutions; what needs to be recreated is the GOP; and what needs to happen is a fundamental reset.


This is the only opportunity. Get it right people. Be loud, be obnoxious, and yes, even risk losing friends. Make no mistake. Your futures, your children's futures, and our nation's future depends on your voting Biden LOUDLY and CLEARLY. This means doing whatever is possible to ensure that ensure that everyone you know does as well.


A closing:


So yes, don't just vote Biden, shout that you did!
