Please, please don't ever allow ANYONE to influence you in any way not to exercise your constitutional right to vote. I know it's hard, depressing even, so unbelievable that this man-made disaster is happening here in the United States, but remember, the future has not been written. We the people make the difference. I recently found out that my maternal Grandparents, who I only knew of being Ukrainian and immigrating from at the time Galicia Austria-Hungary (which is Poland) in the early 1900's, were actually Ruthenian/Rusyn, not Ukrainian. They were a people without a country of their own. Spoke their dialect of Ukrainian, had their own Churches where they practiced their Eastern Greek Catholic Religon, their own culture and lived in villages in the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains, spanning parts of Slovakia, Poland, and Ukraine for many hundreds of years as shephards and farmers. My GParents and others in the family braved the scary trip across the ocean (sometimes losing children and spouses and having burials at sea) to a strange land not knowing English very well if at all, for a better life, a chance to live and to give their children a better life and left before the horrors of pre WW1. That war and later when Poland after WW2, instigated and assisted by (you guessed it, the RUSSIAN Soviet Union) of mass deportation of thousands of ethnic Lemkos and other Rusyns. Split families up, dispersed them elsewhere in Europe, took the lands they lived on, burned their churches and villages. Many came here too after that. I'm only just learning about who they call the Lemkos, are. A strong determined people to survive. The first to have many put in a concentration camp long before WW2. Now they are finally rebuilding some of their culture, since the Soviet Union is dead, after many years of being told they didn't exist. My mind is still boggled (and emotional, can you tell?) in learning this. My Gparents died without getting to witness this. They had never spoken about it. More short and to the point. VOTE NO MATTER WHAT OR WHO! It's your right and the way I look at it, duty. If you and anyone else that is thinking of not voting, you will be doing exactly what Trump, GOP and other hate mongers want. Giving up! Possibly, the Bastard may win, but you will know you did the right thing and didn't let them scare you off. May be more dark before the light, but the light will shine brighter and longer than ever when it comes. I feel it in my (Lemko) bones! VOTE VOTE VOTE!!!!!
"Where law ends tyranny begins" John Locke
Locke defines tyranny as "the exercise of power beyond right." A just leader is bound by the laws of the legislative and works for the people, whereas a tyrant breaks the laws and acts on his own behalf "All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men (and women) to do nothing." Edmund Burke
