We here at 3CHICS are all about
THE VOTING PLAN.
Do you have a VOTING PLAN for the November 2020 Election?
If you have one, have you made sure that those close to you have one?
A FrontPager over at Balloon Juice came up with a fantastic idea.
A list of 85 things that WE, as regular citizens, can do in our part of the world, to work towards free and fair elections.
Taking Action: List of Things We Can Do
A few recent quotes to help keep us grounded:
We’ve been living under the thumb of an abuser for four years. Trump winning at all was a traumatically horrible surprise. We’ve all got PTSD from Hell, and are inclined to trust nothing because the hits keep coming from nowhere. But the well established fact is, these are not evil masterminds. They are not Lex Luthor. They’re shitlords. ~Frankensteinbeck 8/9
Another thing is that we have agency. We can act, speak, demonstrate, vote, etc. We are not merely inert vessels to be act upon by malign forces. Even saying “fuck you, you can’t beat me,” under your breath is an act of resistance to incipient tyranny and one I recommend that people start with whenever they start feeling defeated. ~Omnes Omnibus 8/9
This is a hard moment. Not because of this morning’s nonsense but because of all the threats we face through this election. We cannot control everything that happens to us, either individually or in our civic existence. But we can avoid losing battles in our own heads before they even start. Let’s not do that. Don’t cower. ~Josh Marshall 7/30
You don’t have to do all the list. Pick 2, 3. And then, next week, pick a different 2 or 3. Share the list with others. We can do this. Despite the voter suppression, and the foreign interference, we can do this. We can get the Orange Menace and his GOP collaborators out of office on November 3rd.
ALL HANDS ON DECK.
Get yourself A VOTING PLAN.
