Don’t be like Tiffany;

Make no mistake though, if the Democrats take the House, and even the Senate, it’s not over, it’s not even the start of being over, it’s the start of the potential for being over.

If the Democrats take the House and the Senate, their constituents cannot let them slide back into the status quo, because that is what got you here in the first place. You are going to have to keep the pressure up to reverse the damage that Trump and the GOP have done. The loopholes that allowed Trump to take power have to be closed, and voter suppression has to end, and you will have to take a long hard look at how you got to where you are and how to prevent it in the future.

If the U.S. falls, then that emboldens fascists, dictators and right-wing groups around the world. If the U.S. rights the course, and comes out a stronger democracy, then that will strengthen other democracies.

The U.S. is the oldest of the modern democracies, and it would be beyond tragic for this dream to end, it would be catastrophic, not only for you, but for the rest of the world.
