When you vote for President, your vote goes so much deeper than the person in the White House.

Look at the mess we face in our Supreme Court. This didn't have to happen like so many other things as a result of Trump and this Administration. Follow me here.

When we left off in 2016, the court was a 4-4 split. Had Clinton been elected, Scalia's seat would be filled by a liberal judge, 5-4 liberal majority. Justice Ginsburg would have retired and replaced by a liberal judge, still 5-4. 1/2

If Justice Kennedy would have decided to retire as he did (Kavanagh's seat), there's another liberal judge.

As it is now, we're staring at a 6-3
conservative slant and everything we care about is seriously in peril.

Stop allowing what is decent and necessary for the world to be the enemy of a perfect ideal. Think deeper than your own perfect ideology because the consequences can be the opposite of your intentions.

Get off your butt and vote Joe Biden and every Democratic Senator running. 2/2
