For us die-hard Democrats we are singing April showers bring May primaries Yes, that’s right, we have a primary election just around the corner, May 17th, to be exact. In this year’s primary, most of our offices are running unopposed. Some would argue that voting in the primary is not a big deal and not worth the hassle. But this is flawed logic. In this upcoming primary YOU have a hand in selecting our next US Senate candidate. In case you have not been paying attention, this is a really big deal, as the Republicans are bent on dismantling our democracy step by step. Their tactics of disinformation create chaos and lead us closer to an authoritarian form of rule. The digital age opened up a highway for distortion of reality and facts and created opportunity of powermongers and scoundrels.
Our underestimation of how authoritarians would use this new technology led to the Jan 6th insurrection as well as the horrors we see unfolding in Ukraine today. The dictator playbook of misinforming and creating chaos occurs throughout history and is occurring today in Russia, and yes, even in the US. Even here, Chester County Republicans are still asking for an audit of the 2020 and 2021 elections!
So it is ever more important for us to remain steadfast and support the process and our candidates.
We must not take our right to vote for granted. Voting in every election establishes a good habit, like brushing your teeth. We must be mindful of our right and responsibility to voting. Vote as if your life depended on it!
