Quote #950 - #VoteEarly

19 Oct, 2020

Vote Early

"Voting is important ... because voting preserves all other constitutional rights. It's the linchpin for everything else."
Kim Wehle

"To permit irresponsible authority is to permit disaster."
Robert A. Heinlein

"Every election is determined by the people who show up."
Larry J. Sabato

I'm starting the MMQ voting push early this year.
It's that kind of year.
Voting Season, not Voting Day.
Most of us are voting early.
All of us need to vote.

It's supposed to be one vote that wins,
but we've learned the hard way
it's one vote in the electoral college.

It's supposed to be an electoral college victory that wins,
but now we know
the size of the battle that's coming
will be determined by the size of the victory.

The bigger the victory
the smaller the battle.

We need the biggest victory we can possibly muster.

So ...

This is me
sending out my postcards--
my letters to the world:

Vote early.
Vote by mail (track it if you can).
Vote in a dropbox (make sure it's not a decoy box).
Wear a mask if you have to be out there.
Socially distance if you have to stand in line.
But vote.
Vote as if our country depends on it
because it does.
Vote as if your life depends on it
because it might.

Just vote.
