OK Millennials, Let's talk about voting

You didn't show up for the election on November 4th. You were busy. You were uninspired by the Democratic candidates. You wanted them to be bravely progressive. You wanted them to "speak to you". Me too. I'm a very progressive 61 year old woman who ALWAYS votes, and I was hoping to hear more courage and conviction from the people running for office as well.

HOWEVER -

By your not voting, you may have unleashed:

Making contraceptives more difficult to get, or possibly even illegal
The end of the EPA
The end of Roe v. Wade
The dismantling of our voting rights (already under way in many red states)
More and more and more wars
Workplace protections - gone
50 state Medicaid expansion - gone
Affordable Care Act - gone
Social Security and Medicare - privatized (Oh, don't worry, you'll never be old and won't ever get sick)
Changes in Red state Electoral College votes, making it easier for the Republicans to take the White House

Do you really think these are OK?
Do you really want your future ruled by these right wing nut bags???

You are our future. You are smart and hard working. You have lots of great ideas for our country.

Put a note in your I Phone for the next election, and every single F-ing one after that - VOTE!
