Don’t act like you haven’t been waiting for me to tell you how to vote! OK, so this is more of a discussion post than Serious Endorsements.
Vote yes, yes & yes on ballot initiatives. I know the nursing question isn’t perfect, but approving the initiative and letting legislators fix any flaws would be greatly preferable to killing the initiative and giving legislators no incentive to change the status quo.
Vote straight-ticket Democratic. All the way down to school board races.
But!, you may say: There is a Republican who seems Not That Bad; there is a Republican who’s been around forever & was nice when he came to my school one time; or, I am extremely thoughtful unlike mindless straight ticket voters!
My counterpoint is that Trump has totally changed the GOP by putting immense pressure on officials *at every level* to assist his corruption & injustice. Even the “good” Republican members of Congress vote for leadership who refuse to investigate Trump’s corruption. Republican secretaries of state are helping Trump suppress the vote. Republican sheriffs are helping Trump’s race war against law-abiding immigrants.
There has never been a more clear, more important time to vote straight-ticket Democratic. If you don’t know who to vote for in the county commissioner race, vote Democratic. In 2018, it is the most important way to Resist.
