S.O.S.

Today is election day - and about one year out from the 2024 election. 

F.M.L 

Mentally, I am not 100% sure I can handle that. I can barely handle today and it's not even for the top office. 

Our governor - for all intents and purposes - has vowed to keep after abortion laws (making them stricter, or 100% unavailable) regardless of what the voters may say with today's Issue 1. 

This is so disturbing to me, and yet not surprising. 

What I have yet to see is ANY media asking him, "so you are willing to defy what the voters, whom you represent, have enacted by the election process?"   Let the worm squirm a little.........but they haven't even put him on the hook at all. 

More disturbing, and not surprising, is the apathy of the college-aged voter. 

For years, we keep hearing how the GOP will rue the day when their constituents age out and the younger, more "woke" people take to the polls.   ......except, it's not happening. 

Case in point:  today.  

The youth vote has dropped from 27% in 2018 to 22% in 2022........and that's with all the inescapable bullshit that has gone on at the national level on down to local shit. 

The number of college voters in high who didn't even know there WAS an election today, and those who did, didn't have a know about the issues, or for the males, doesn't affect them.   Lord!  One interviewed saying "there is no publicity on this election". 

JFC. 

We, as nation, are not going to be saved by more critical thinking youths. They don't exist. 

They're morons. 

710 was raised in a very educational and liberal household. His parents got all the kids politically aware early in life. This is great.  

Mine?  Not so much. I found the importance on my own. We didn't discuss politics or even the importance of registering or voting. Yet I've voted in every election since turning 18. It's important. 

Or was. I mean, it is, but I'm amazed by the apathy that is here and the danger that is coming our way. 

Wait. It's here. And it's been here 


(btw.....I like the ohiosos.gov.   Sure, it means 'secretary of state', but it could just as easily be a distress signal.)

If you voted you’ve done your part.

I am voting on my way to the office, and sending my staff home early to vote on the way home.

I am not surprised the kids are nihilistic, but when they get passionate they get effective. But they know the game is rigged better than the rest of us.

I didn't read the fine print but it seems there was some good news on Tuesday in Ohio?
