Hey #mepolitics, I found my inspiration for a #SundaySoapbox a day late. It's a holiday, right?

I had someone compare me to @BarackObama last week and minutes ago I had someone reference hope and change.

Let's talk about hope and change.
Change I'm all for, we'll get back to that.

Let's start with hope.

I have to confess, I don't love hope.

Hope...can be kind of a dick.

It teases you.

You *think* something maybe, kind of can happen.

If you just hope enough it'll be right?


It's probably my family law background.

Too many really lovely people hoping for their partner, child, parent, etc to be the person they could be if that partner, child, parent, etc if they only changed, which of course they have no desire and/or resources to do.

Change, I'm all for when it creates positive outcomes.

However, I need something more concrete than hope to sell me. We want change, almost all of us in 2018.

Can't you feel it? It doesn't even have a political party. I see it across the spectrum.

We are frustrated.

We are angry.

We are disappointed.

We feel stuck.

I see it in your tweets, your facebook posts. I hear it when I talk to people,

We're focusing it wrong. It's just building and making us more frustrated, angry, disappointed, and stuck.

We're pumping the energy back into the same broken system using the same tools.

What if even 1% of us tried something different?

Let's take the hope and the faith and the frustration and the anger and the disappointment and the stuck, and get unstuck.

Let's change the system...not because we hope we can, but because we *KNOW* we can.

If even 10k of us do a single #MaineRaising, by shopping or donating in #ME02, I know it will likely flip this race.

If 100k of us do, I *know* it will flip.

If you feel lost in all the other campaigns, uninspired, spinning your wheels, hopeless - focus your energy here.

Like, tweet, comment, share on other platforms, talk.

If you have a few $ to throw at a #MaineRaising, do it.

Convert 5 friends.

Convert 5 more.

We have the ability to win in a way no one ever has before, by choosing to use politics as a force for good, for kindness, for community.

This campaign shouldn't feel like a campaign; it should feel like a movement - not socialism or capitalism or any other ism.

This is taking politics back.

It's voting with our $ to not buy in to the sheer hell campaigns have become.

No attack ads, no ads at all.

We choose to help people, strengthen the fabric of our communities, and promote our future.

Let's make change.

Will you join me?

Keep an eye on my pinned tweet and my website.

Every single day do one thing. One like. One RT. One #MaineRaising. Tell one friend. Ask a friend to tell a friend. Email a tv show to cover this.

We have 9 weeks. Let's go.
