Well we are now on a COUNTDOWN TO VICTORY - and it all rests with us - WE THE PEOPLE, the VOTERS, VOX POPULI - to get the job done.
There should be absolutely no excuses whatsoever about why you did not make it to the polls - regardless of where you are or who you are - or your health condition - all of those contingencies have been handled. You cannot allow the enemy or the meanstream media to psyche you out of exercising your right and responsibility to vote.
But, in case you're not up to speed as to whats going on or what's at stake, allow me to provide you with an updated insight and overview - as well as some plans and strategies on how to make sure you, your family, neighbors, and associates make it to the polls and do the right thing:
Firstly, the Democratic Candidate for President of the United States is HILLARY CLINTON.
Her running mate for Vice President of the United States is TIM KAINE
|TIM KAINE FOR VICE PRESIDENT|
HILLARY CLINTON is an excellent choice for President and has long years of experience in working in the communities in behalf of children, African Americans and minorities, education, comprehensive universal health care. The is not the "lesser of two evils," she is the absolute best choice - her experiences as First Lady of Arkansas, and First Lady of the US, as well as US Senator from the State of New York, and Secretary of State, have given her the insight, expertise, intelligence, temperament, and experience to be an excellent President of the United States. Even T-Rump admitted that she does not give up - we all know that she has a passion for people, and the discipline to get the job done with style, grace and class.
When she was not in office in an elected capacity, she utilized her time working on humanitarian and educational projects - and the proof of that is the fact that many of the programs she started are still in effect.
And I guess you may not be clear on what's at stake! If we slip up and don't vote HILLARY CLINTON AND THE ENTIRE SLATE INTO OFFICE - no splitting the votes; no symbolic protest votes (which would be translated as a vote for Trump) just straight up and down the line - wherever you can vote out a Repuglycon in the process, make it your business to do so - and make sure your friends, associations, neighbors do the same as well - to the extent possible.
Now if you were looking for me to do some ersatz "politically correct" thing and say it doesn't matter who you vote for as long as you vote, you obviously know nothing about me. It absolutely does matter who you vote for. And it matters that you know that YOUR VOTE MATTERS JUST LIKE YOUR LIFE MATTERS.
President Barack Obama cannot run for a third term, so please don't continue to make that wish - he is, however, supporting HILLARY CLINTON.
It would not only be an insult to President Obama to not vote for HILLARY, it would spell the further destruction and marginalization of us as Black people, who have already literally been the target of racism, discrimination at the hands of her opponent for decades. It's an insult to your children and grandchildren; it's an insult to women - and it's the epitome of self hatred and masochism to vote for someone who has consistently exhibited this behavior and attitude in thought word and deed.
That said, you must plan to deal with the demons that are more likely than not going to try to usurp your vote - to block you at the polls - who are going to try last minute tactics to cast aspersions on HILLARY in hopes that it will influence those who are proverbially sitting on the fence to change their minds. Make sure you see it for what it is - trickery, lies and deceit. In point of fact, this has been the dirtiest, most foul and undignified Presidential campaign ever in the history of the US - and it is as a result of the accumulated racism, blockages, and downright obvious, blatant treason on the part of the repuglycons that we now have a candidate - DONALD T-RUMP - who has taken what used to be a relatively honorable process and dragged it through slime, muck, and hedonism.
You almost feel the need to have a combination of Lysol, Clorox, toilet paper, and hand sanitizer every time you deal with anything having remotely to deal with him or his supporters. Most of us thought that the kinds of behaviors we have witnessed only appeared in either comedy movies, or some horribly twisted macabre drama - not in the real world of the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave. But here it is, breathing its fetid breath over everyone - with the smell of sulphur permeating the very atmosphere. T-Rump as president is somewhere between Machiavellianism and Faustism - and not to be tolerated.
That said - let's look at what to do to make sure you and yours get to the polls without blockage, difficulty or delay - ESPECIALLY YOU BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN PHILADELPHIA WHERE A STRIKE HAS BEEN RIGGED DELIBERATELY TO BLOCK YOU FROM VOTING - YOU ARE A SWING STATE, AND THEY WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE SUFFICIENTLY REDUCED IN YOUR CAPACITY TO BE EFFECTIVE - AND IT'S UP TO YOU TO MAKE SURE IT DOES NOT WORK. CAR POOL, GET CHURCH VANS, AND WHATEVER OTHER VEHICLES YOU NEED TO GET TO THE POLLS -
(NOTE: There has been some talk that SEPTA will come off strike for election day to get people to and from the polls - how nice of them! Just make sure you have your own transportation lined up regardless, Carpool, Church Van, School Bus, bike, scooter whatever - just don't get caught short.)
NOTE: Senior Citizens in Pennsylvania can also use Absentee Ballots to vote if they have difficulties getting to the polls.
Local chapters of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., are also working to assist voters in identifying their appropriate polling places and districts.
Regardless of where you live, you must make a plan to exercise your right & responsibility to vote:
