Voting is the responsibility

Voting is the responsibility of every citizen. If every person that is eligible to vote actually took the time to vote, Democratic candidates would win the majority of elections in the United States. There is a reason Republican state legislatures and officials have passed laws and pushed measures that will keep citizens that are young or old and disabled, or poor, or non-white from being able to vote. They know Republican policies favor the elite and wealthy of our society and these groups of people do not agree with policies that are against their well being. The Republican Party platform is detrimental to all Americans and contradicts Christian values and beliefs and the beliefs and values of any other religion based on love and kindness. The Republican Party's policies are also anti-environment, against public education, against world peace, against the middle class and the poor, and support an immoral and evil President. The Republican platform goes against everything Jesus taught. Every Evangelical, Catholic, and Protestant that supports Trump is making a mockery of their religion. If the Republicans retain control of Congress Trump will have a green light to continue his dictatorship. Everyone should be scared and should go vote and do what they can to stop the Trump nonsense.

Republicans that continue to

Republicans that continue to support a lying buffoon that has appealed to the worst in our country should be ashamed. He has energized every neo-Nazi, klansman, and racist in America.He might as well have a swastika tattooed on his forehead. You cannot be a decent person and support all the policies and actions of an evil moron like Trump. How can Democrats, Republicans, or Independents not be outraged at Trumps actions and demand his impeachment? Democrats need to take over the House to make this happen in 2019.The person that really needs to be locked up is Donald Trump! Early voting has already started in 15 states. It starts here Wednesday. An election has never been more important in our country than this year. The damage Trump has done to our country will never be repaired. Every decent citizen needs be outraged at Trump and speak out and do what they can to elect leaders that demand his removal and punishment.
