BuzzFlash has asked its readers to share their predictions on the likely outcome of Tuesday’s election: A large percentage of those responding are saying, in effect, that the actual voting doesn’t matter because the GOP will just steal the election anyway.
Election fraud and vote suppression are serious concerns. But I beg you, please, please people don’t use them as an excuse for sitting on your hands. We have a historic opportunity in this election to take a big chunk of our government back from the people who’ve been misusing it so badly.
And remember, if the Republicans do play dirty — and I don’t doubt for a second that they will (hell, they already are) — it will mean that we need more votes not less.
As for myself, I’ve volunteered to act as a Democratic poll watcher on Tuesday. How about you? Why not put that “paranoia” to good use? Work — vote — help to get out the vote. Be a citizen.
