I’m a fan of leading by doing and not a fan of evangelizing. I talk about things like me getting around on a bike in part because it’s part of my life and in part because I think the world would be a better place if more people did their getting around on a bike. But, try to avoid gushing about how everyone else should ride a bike and I’m not going to slag on someone because they drive when they could have been biking. Likewise with voting. I share that I voted. I might say please vote because I think more people voting is a good thing, but these days I try to stay away from telling other people how they should vote.
This time it’s different. This time I really do think that “little d” democracy is on the line and we need to stop the direction that our current president and our current Republican Party is headed. This time I think everyone should either vote against every Republican on their ballot or not vote at all.
I, freaking, hate that I feel the need to share this post and opinion piece from WaPo with you all.
