I typically don’t talk politics on this particular forum, but I believe that we need to put our money where our mouth is. Have you contributed any money to your political affiliation of choice? Have you contributed any time?
I’m in for $75. It’s not a ton of money, but it allowed me say that I am doing something about my belief in my candidate. I think it’s kinda like the lottery. I always have believed that you shouldn’t sit around and waste time dreaming about winning the Lotto unless you have bought at least one ticket. I probably have bought 5 lottery tickets in the last 13 years. Thus, 5 daydreaming sessions.
Have you bought your ticket to dream? Have you donated to the candidates’ party of your choice? That’s what people who are secure in their convictions do. Don’t talk. Do.
