  •  i think the most ruinous thing we can do (1+ / 0-)

    is vote status quo.

    our system is corrupt and if we vote D or R, we legitimize it. it's simple, but far from easy.

    we have to take the hit at some point. we have to begin to move away from this death and destruction economy, the militarization of police, and a society ruled by cultural chum issues rather than reason and compassion.

    the Democrats are not going to bring us to a place where we can confront climate change and start us building economies to deal with the very severe outcomes waiting for us in anywhere from 1 to 10 years.

    on the other hand, we could just pretend like it was August 2001 again. little league in the spring, christmas mornings, and family gatherings at Thanksgiving.

    in some way, i guess i've given up and will let Mother Nature take the lead when she's ready.
