“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
If you don’t agree that Mexicans are rapists and belong as housekeepers, but can be capable and impartial federal judges after integrating into our country. If you don’t agree that overweight people like to undertake cyber attacks from their couches. If you believe it is a good thing for women to have healthy appetites and healthy bodies. If you believe that all Gold Star families should be treated with respect and not denigrated based on their religion.
If you fear it is dangerous for a president to promise “law and order” by encouraging unconstitutional approaches like stop-and-frisk. If you don’t think our president should praise international leaders who poison their detractors. If you are alarmed by a president who owes untold millions to oligarchs with ties to organized crime and attempts to build business empires with our enemies.
If you think our president should work to pass tax laws eliminating loopholes for millionaires, not boast of being smart for taking advantage of those loopholes. If you think our president should have respect for all races, religions, ethnicities, genders and socioeconomic backgrounds. If you want a president who seeks out knowledge and experience, and offers distinct policy proposals to support a well-defined agenda.
If you are frightened by the idea of a president who coldly muses about shooting someone on 5th Avenue and getting away with it. If you question electing a president who has been a named defendant in 1,300 lawsuits, with allegations ranging from fraudulent business activities to racial discrimination to the rape of a thirteen-year-old girl. If you are concerned about a president who can be provoked to distraction by a tweet. If your greatest nightmare is a president with a thin skin and the nuclear code.
Don’t find yourself on the wrong side of history. Don’t do nothing. Do something.
Vanquish evil. Vote.
(Weekly conference calls with like-minded people who want to stop a candidate who is racist, sexist, bigoted, incites violence and is demonstrating no competence for the job at hand.)
