If there has ever been a general election that it is critical to vote in, this is it. Of course it is important to vote in every election, but this election will decide not simply the policies of administration that will stretch over a mere four years. It will determine whether we continue the course of destroying America’s global standing and continuing marginalization of working class Americans or halt the process, reverse the destructive course that the Trump administration has set out on, and begin the enormous work of repairing what has been done. Just how critical is this election? It is so critical that the forces that would suppress the democratic right of every American to vote are out in force, attempting to curtail opportunities for voter registration, force the closing of polling stations and on the whole make voting as difficult as possible for every American. This must end.
