People… this is 2018.
Where a horrible businessman and reality-show host can be president…
And a porn star can come forward with evidence that may just take him down…
And, It’s possible that Taylor Swift just destroyed the entire Republican Party.
Now, am I happy that Americans don’t act until Taylor Swift says to? No…that’s actually quite depressing. However, if my choices are to have Taylor Swift encourage Americans to vote, or allow America to keep rolling over and allowing scumbag pieces of shit like Brett Kavanaugh to get lifetime access to Supreme Court rulings….
(Rereads this paragraph and realizes how fucking absurd those two choices are…grabs paper bag to hyperventilate, then needs to go brew herbal tea to calm down…)
(returns to computer with mug of tea)
Ok… sorry about that, I just almost died because 2018 is literally fucking killing me.
(Takes more deep breaths)
Ok ok, but in all honesty, Im at a point now where I’m like, ya know what, whatever gets the damn job done is ok by me.
And if this is who saves America….
oh dear god…
(no, no! Stay positive…this is a positive post…)
(Deep breath, cracks neck)
Then good for America.
Because someone has to get young people interested in voting. Because sadly, Republicans are angry and scared, and easily worked up. They will and do vote because right-wing media is constantly telling them how America is just inches away from total destruction every single day, and Republicans believe it with all their hearts. And it encourages them to vote with a ferocity unknown to most liberals.
For some context, Kathy Griffin still receives death threats daily, and there are still a good number of Republicans who actually believe she’s in Isis…. That is scary shit. Republicans don’t let things go.
They are scared, angry, and refuse to quit. The Right-wing media machine will only increase their insane news stories all the way until November to ensure that every conservative in America is fully convinced that liberals are about to do something insane (like, pay Americans a fair wage or something…) thus ensuring that every conservative goes to the polls, convinced it’s a matter of life or death.
And so someone needs to encourage liberals to vote…
And if that person just happens to be Taylor Swift then… God help our fucking souls cuz were fucked.
(takes sip of tea, REMEMBER POSITIVE! GOOD VIBES ONLY!)
OK, OK, NEVER MIND THAT… THERE IS HOPE.
Yes, Taylor Swift is probably very uneducated on Politics, but that’s fine. Because all she’s doing is encouraging people to vote. She isn’t running for office herself. NO, THAT WOULD BE CRAZY. Can you imagine a celebrity with no education in politics or law deciding to run for office just because they wanted to? … That couldn’t possibly happen…ever.
(Slams head against table, hoping to end it all right here and now)
Luckily, A lot of democratic candidates are well-versed, and come from a wide array of backgrounds! In fact, there are more women and minorities running for office than ever, and that is an amazing thing. And what we all have to remember is this: THIS IS OUR COUNTRY. NOT VOTING IS GIVING SOMEONE ELSE CONTROL OVER YOUR DEMOCRACY.
Don’t let others have control over you, make your voice count, register to vote here:
And Taylor… ugh….
Thank you for saving America. (I can’t believe I just said that… Where is my chamomile tea? I NEED MY GODDAMN TEA! NOW!)
