Change can happen.

When the history books are written of this time of our lives, I pray they will be as ugly as it is living through it in real-time.

I woke up this morning scanning the news about our nation & the world and it is not pretty at all. It is ugly.

So tomorrow, election day, vote where you can. Vote blue. We are in the middle of an impeachment inquiry, and as thus, the occupant of the White House will remain there for the foreseeable future.

But, in Kentucky, Mississippi and Louisiana there are governors races.

In Virginia, All 140 seats in the House of Delegates and the State Senate are on the ballot. If the tide turns blue, Our nation may finally see the ERA become a part of the Consitution.
If Democrats win control of the legislature, they would join with Northam to consolidate control of state government for the first time in a generation. They have promised swift action on a number of priorities in addition to gun control: passage of the Equal Rights Amendment, an increase in the minimum wage and greater spending on transportation.

“All you got to do is pick up a couple seats in two houses and everything changes,” Biden told the enthusiastic crowd at the office park. “You don’t want to wake up like in 2017 and have to pull a name out of a hat.”

Biden was referring to the race for House of Delegates in Newport News in 2017 between Del. David E. Yancey ® and Democratic challenger Shelly Simonds that ended in a tie that was broken when a state election official pulled Yancey’s name out of a bowl on live national television. Three other races were nearly as close.
We are voting for our City's elected representatives here in Maryland. We will be casting our votes.

Voting is where we need to start saying no to tRumpism, at the ballot box, just like we did in Virginia in 2016 and last year by taking back the house of representatives on the national level. These are small acts of impeachment and they matter.

Eleven years ago today, this nation elected Barck Hussein Obama as the 44th President of the United States. It's hard to imagine how quickly we have digressed since that awful night in 2016. It is up to all of us to do one small and revolutionary act: VOTE.

Change can happen. We have to be the change.

and

Raine
