Trump Is Trump And He Must Be Trumped.

I want to remind any
radically libersl friends i might hve
that even though Hillary Clinton
is not Bernie Sanders,
Donald Trump is still Donald Trump.

I will do more to try to help Clinton
in the General Election
than i did to help Bernie
in the primary.

Sadly, i live in  a very red State
where my votes for President,
and Congress will count  for nothing.
Kind radicals in swing States
please take note and pity.

I live in a very hopelessly red state, too. I do various things--visit neighboring states that are closer to purple ("swing states"), vote blue anyway because the numbers send a message even if my candidate doesn't win (maybe not to Trump, but to locals), donate to good candidates, sign up for phone banks (I hope they'll have the system they used in 2010), and whatever else I can do.

Yes, i must do what i can however little that is. An ocean is an accumulation of many small drops of water.

I used to help conduct telephone polling, so there is no reason i could not be part of a phone bank or even run one. But talking on the phone to strangers petrifies me. Same with door to door campaigning. I always feel like an intruder. Maybe i can overcome my fear this year since the stakes seem so high.

Yes, by all means i will support local Democratic candidates.
The local community is where the grass roots are rooted. And this year, for the first time ever, i have a significant amount of money and the freedom to spend it as i choose.

A lot of the polling I did for the 2006 House elections and the two Obama presidential elections were geared toward getting out the vote, not trying to persuade people to change their minds. But there are probably other things you can do that would be just as helpful. Driving people to polls is another good thing to do. It involves seeing strangers, but not asking them to do anything.
