This Is How You Influence a Democracy - Yes, Election 2016

I just volunteered for a phone shift tonight at the Hillary Clinton GOTV effort.
I've also donated to the campaign.
As some of you might know, I've never done either of those things before, and getting involved in this way isn't really comfortable for me.
If you're like me - you agree about this election but don't usually go beyond voting - maybe think about it this weekend.

And this is how you truly influence a democracy - a government of free men and women.
You don't hide in a bunker ready to shoot at the Feds.
You don't try to scare your fellow Americans, or intimidate them, or assault them. You try to convince them of your position.
Now I step off the soapbox.
