I went Libertarian in '95 because Bush Sr. left the NRA and I was pissed about it (dumb). Voted Libertarian up to and including 2016 (guilty). Even marched with the Tea Party in 2009 in Albuquerque (stupid). I got played like a chump and I admit it. See? That's not very hard.
For those asking where I'm at now: I voted D for the first time in 2018. I spent over 30 days protesting and marching this last year, to include a couple weeks in front of the WH. I pump money into promising candidates, as well as the ACLU...
..I lobby my state reps. I'm supporting marginalized groups in my area (the homeless and the incarcerated). I'm finding everyone I can that's pushing back against the dystopia and lending what assistance I can. Humanity is at a crossroads and this is full-court press time.
Since this blew up I'm going to take the opportunity to ask everyone to consider throwing a couple of bucks at any of the following: @ACLU @amnesty @B_W_B @center4inquiry @CenterForBioDiv @escapedmatrix (Flint needs unleaded H2O) @MSF_USA @NOLSedu and @ResourceMe2019 Thank you.
Also, AAR notes on this thread: in Afghanistan my best metric for success was the number of death threats I got. It shows that one's causing concern / making waves. Even better was the attempted suicide bombings. Nothing like that on here, but the troll activity suggests that...
...protesting is effective. As a professional, I'd suggest that mass sustained protests are *very* effective. Americans are just bad at them and we've been ground down, worn out, and distracted. Join the next anti-regime protest in your area. Get in the street, rinse, repeat.
