Stolen from the book of faces

To Democratic Party voters who "will never vote" for so-and-so:

You're not voting for President.
You're voting for who replaces RBG.
You're voting for the next Secretary of Education.
You're voting for federal judges.
You're voting for the rule of law.
You're voting for saving national parks.
You're voting for letting kids out of cages.
You're voting for clean air and clean water.
You're voting for scientists to be allowed to speak about climate change.
You're voting for what the President says on Twitter.
You're voting for housing rights.
You're voting for LGBTQ people to be treated with dignity.
You're voting for non-Christians to be able to adopt and to feel like full citizens.
You're voting for Dreamers.
You're voting so that there will be Social Security and Medicare when you retire.
You're voting for veterans to get the care they deserve.
You're voting for rural hospitals.
You're voting so that someone else can have health insurance.
You're voting for PBS.
You're voting to have a President who doesn't embarrass this country every time she or he attends an international meeting.
And you're voting against allowing the USA to become yet another authoritarian regime.

No Democrat is perfect. Your first AND second choices may have dropped out. Your third might. But here's the thing--and I need you to understand it--the nominee, no matter who she or he is, will not be perfect. They won't pass your purity test. And yet every single one of them will be better than four more years of Trump.

Because it's the only thing that matters!

Turkish proverb

Someone on Reddit explained why so many people support Trump by quoting a Turkish proverb: 

The trees kept voting for the axe, for his handle was wood and they thought him one of them.

Borrowed from the web

AMERICA: Oh my god! Coronavirus! What should we do?
CALIFORNIA: Shut down your state.
AMERICA: Wait... what? Why?
CALIFORNIA: Because 40 million people live here and we did it early, and it’s working.
OHIO: Whoa... whoa... let’s not be hasty now. The president said that this whole coronavirus thing is a democratic hoax.
CALIFORNIA: He also said that windmills cause cancer. Shut down your state.
TEXAS: But the president said that we only have 15 cases and soon it'll be zero.
CALIFORNIA: The president can’t count to fifteen. Nor even spell it. Shut down your state.
CALIFORNIA: Yes, you guys too. Just like when Christie shut down the bridge, but it’s your whole state.
FLORIDA: But what about all these kids here on spring break?? They spend a lot of money here!
CALIFORNIA: Those kids invented the tide pod challenge. Shut down your state.
LOUISIANA: But wait let’s have Mardi Gras first. It entertains people.
CALIFORNIA: It also kills them. Shut it down.
GEORGIA: Ok well how about we keep the state open for all of our mega churches? Maybe we can all pray really hard until the coronavirus just goes away!
CALIFORNIA: Which is working like a charm for mass shootings. Jesus told us to tell you to shut down your state.
OKLAHOMA: What about the tigers?
CALIFORNIA: What about a dentist. Shut it down.
WYOMING: Hold up, maybe we should go county by county like the president said.
CALIFORNIA: Stop acting like there are counties in Wyoming. There are no counties in Wyoming. Wyoming is a county. Shut it down.
PENNSYLVANIA: But big coal.
CALIFORNIA: But big death. Shut it.
WEST VIRGINIA: But we were the last state to get coronavirus!
CALIFORNIA: And don’t make us explain to you why that was. Shut it down.
NORTH CAROLINA: But the republican national convention is coming here!
CALIFORNIA: SHU... ok fine, do what you want.
