84. People

Care about people

It is 84 days until the next U.S. congressional midterm election.

There are times – more often than we realize, I suspect – that major arguments can be isolated as incredibly simple issues.

Oh-so-many things that form the divisions between left and right, liberal and conservative, Democrat and Republican can be boiled down to the graphic posted above.

I need not itemize the people who have been harshly affected by policies of the current administration and the majority party in Congress, but I will up the ante a bit.

President Trump clearly takes pleasure in causing misery for people. It appears to be just one of his many power trip mechanisms to make him feel more important than others.

Do you care about other people? Do you think sick children should be able to get medical care? Do you think families should be able to financially exist with a full-time job? Do you think education is important for everyone? Do you think people of different religions can live in a community that benefits all?

If you care about people, make sure you’re registered to vote, then cast a ballot for the Democrats on the ballot. Share this with a friend; ask if he or she is registered.

Do you have to only vote for Democrats? Of course not, but I’ll talk more about that tomorrow.
