Since the 80s religious nutballs have been stacking the decks in local elections to pull the country to the right. That has worked far too well. Now they’re going for the brass ring to turn the US into a theocracy. I fear it will work in way too many states. And I worry that we’ll let it happen because we’re still busy trying to decide when to call Cheeto a liar and being butthurt about Bernie and other useless exercises.
So this is your reminder for the day: Vote. Vote for the imperfect candidate over the crazy candidate. Vote in every election and primary and caucus you can. Vote for the local school board, the local dog catcher, the local clerk, the local librarian. Because the alternative will do a whole hell of a lot of damage one drip at a time.
