Random thoughts. The next three months and the next eight years.

RANDOM

Voting against Trump is more than voting against a candidate, no matter what state we live in: blue, red or purple.

The fascist movement (not just the candidate) that has taken over the GOP needs to be rejected by the largest numbers possible. In this election, Trump’s bully boy brown shirts are the main enemy.

This fascist, racist, anti-immigrant movement is not just an American phenomenon. It is an international political movement. I have watched it in the UK with the campaign for Brexit. I am watching it grow with the National Front in France. And the list goes on.

I am not conflicted about encouraging a vote against it. On the day after the election, Hillary or Trump will be the next president.

Over the next three months I plan to spend my time doing my best to expose and build opposition to the racism of the fascist Trump movement.

Some may believe that the overwhelmingly white third parties, the Greens included, are the best vehicle for doing that.

Or that there are more important issues.

Not me.

Not Trump.

I look forward to working to build our movement over the next eight years.

  1. What do you call an election with no real choice?
    Inquiring minds want to know.

    Fred,
    Find somebody to vote for. Now there is a challenge!!

    • Taking your position is like writing anonymous comments on a blog site. No risk. There is a choice. Beat the fascist. Fight the racists. If you see no difference in the outcome on the day after the election, do the right thing and stay home.

  2. Interesting isn’t it that the governor of Illinois after flip flopping on his opinion of trump is still too much of a coward to actually endorse trump but has had one of his talking heads state recently that he is now “in lockstep” with trump. As if we didn’t already know.
