As Election Day looms, more and devastating revelations about Donald Trump are being published. The FBI has publicly injected itself into our political process never before seen in our history in what can only be seen as an attempt to sway the election in Trump’s favor. False stories about investigations and impending indictments have been touted as gospel truth by Fox News, only to be retracted the next day.
None of this, however, is likely to have significant effect on Trump supporters. They will continue to believe in their candidate, cherry picking the stories that reinforce their confirmation bias. At this late stage of the game, there is probably very little that will change the minds of Trump or Clinton supporters.
What will make a difference in the outcome of the election is voter turnout. Clinton has the advantage of a better organization, more money, and a sound ground game. But this won’t matter if people do not go to the polls on November 8th. If you have seen the videos of the racists, the idiots, who spout their ignorance of who and what Trump really is, don’t forget that their vote counts just as much as yours does.
Clinton is certainly an awful alternative to Donald Trump. She is heartily disliked by many Democrats and most Republicans. But she is the only alternative who has a viable chance of defeating Trump. The polling numbers have been all over the place in the last week. It is critical that voters, especially those in swing states, recognize that in order to stop Trump, they must vote for the Democrat ticket. He must not get those electoral votes.
The future of our country is at stake, literally, and it is too precious to risk handing it over to a megalomaniac whose only real concern is for himself. Only if you live in a state like California or New York, do you enjoy the luxury of voting for a third-party candidate. At least it will lower the popular vote numbers for Trump. #NeverTrump means just that. He must never be the president of the United States. Ever. And Trump does not only need to be defeated, he and his entire movement need to be DEMOLISHED! It is the only way to prevent such a disease in our society from reoccurring.
Even before the Republican Convention in July, a number of committed and responsible Republicans have proclaimed themselves to be #NeverTrump. Trump said he didn’t need us to win the election. Let’s prove him wrong. His supporters are committed to seeing him elected. On November 8th, if you have not already voted, go to the polls and show #NeverTrump people are just as committed to his defeat. Whatever it takes.
