I know, I know. A little early for this. Still, I figured you should know.
If it’s Mitt, as teased here in the New York Times, it will come down to: THIRD TIME’S A CHARM versus THREE STRIKES AND YOU’RE OUT. But it’s not gonna be Mitt (as explained here in Buzzfeed). Which makes the stakes 32 days from now even higher, because . . .
(a) While no one knows what Mitt stands for (passing Romneycare? repealing Romneycare?), he at least likely “believes in” science and compromise and stuff, and not all potential 2016 Republican nominees do. So . . .
(b) If Democrats pick up the governorships of Florida and Georgia next month — to take two key examples — that would block what would otherwise be strenuous Republican efforts to keep poor people and young people in Florida and Georgia from voting in 2016. And if voting isn’t suppressed among those voters, the Democratic nominee likely wins the White house — instead of a Republican who could be an even less good choice than Mitt.
Which brings me back to this (I’m sorry for the repetition, but it is so phenomenally important):
If you want to up the odds of a progressive outcome in 2016, please vote in 2014.
If you want to be able to refinance your student loan at today’s lower rates, as you would a mortgage, JUST VOTE! . . . Democrat, November 4, because the Republicans in Congress are all that stand in the way of this being done.
The Republicans currently serving in Congress pride themselves on being unwilling to compromise. Want to break the gridlock and get America moving again? Want to pave the way for 2016? Just take a couple of hours and vote.
Want to avoid Mitch McConnell’s presiding over the confirmation of Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s successor, if she or some other Justice should leave the bench? Just take a couple of hours and vote.
It’s not rocket science. We can do this.
