Ok, so for you former Plussers, or anyone else, I finally put links to all my current social media profiles on my home domain page. We'll see which of the various newer places actually gets some serious buy-in from users.

@firstname.lastname@example.org Conservatism is the abject dread fear that somewhere , somehow , someone you consider your inferior is being treated as your equal.
Step 1. Kiss first flag.
Step 2. Kiss second flag.
Step 3. Kiss third flag.
A friend phrased this very well a little bit ago: The "they're all the same" rhetoric is actually right-wing agitprop. Don't believe it.
Republicans *want* you not to vote at all, for THE SAME REASON they want to suppress the vote: It's the only way they win.
PROVE THEM WRONG.
If you think you're going to sit home and sulk in November rather than vote for the party that is at least closer to your own interests, then you're giving Republicans your power.
THEY WANT YOU TO STAY HOME. They got burned by vote splitting in 1992, then weaponized it in 2000.
Reviving an important related thread. As Joan Crawford famously said, immortalized in the movie "Mommie Dearest":
"This ain't my first time at the rodeo."

What it means to me and many of my friends when someone tries to equate Biden, f***ing flawed as he is, with the Great Pumpkin.
When your movement is founded on helping others, and you decide to (actively) *not* help against a very real harm. Queer, PoC, those in poverty.

Perspective is a hell of a thing.
Vote the Republicans out.
Every slimy, waffling, aloof, and apathetic one of them.

I've lost four friends so far; three friends have lost close relatives, and several more are in ICUs. If it hasn't affected you yet, trust me — IT WILL.
