There is a Blue Tsunami coming, an overwhelming reaction from voters who are tired of the dog-whistle, nihilistic racial politics of the far-right led by Donald Trump. People who were complacent in 2016 have realized that the future of our experiment in democracy hangs in the balance are waking up.
Russian trolls and hackers managed to turn a popular vote win for Hillary Clinton into an Electoral College win for Donald Trump, and our country has been reeling ever since. Whether you preferred Hillary or Bernie no longer matters, either would have been far better than the daily dumpster fire that is the Trump administration.
A Blue Wave isn’t enough, we need a Blue Tsunami. We need Democrats and independents like Rob Anderson, a candidate running for Congress here in Louisiana that I am working for. We have to put our differences aside, and invite moderate Republicans who haven’t bought into the Russian propaganda campaign that threatens to tear our country apart.
The Blue Tsunami is coming, but only if you get off your ass, organize, and vote. The left was lulled into a sense of complacency, content to share misleading and inaccurate clickbait from sites like Occupy Democrats, and others like them.
We are at a turning point now. Where we go from here is up to you, if you stop signing useless petitions, stop sharing fake news, and take the time to vote.
