The Broad is Back!

Get yourself registered!

Today is the last day to register to vote in the elections if you live in NYS.  If you live in other states, you still might have time, but get out there!

I had a young man in class today tell me that he wasn’t going to vote since it doesn’t make any difference.  I told him that’s just what those who would manipulate our democracy would have him think.  They don’t want him voting, and he’s playing in their hands.

Who are they?  The power elite.  If all the possible voters got out there and registered and then voted, there would be a groundswell that could turn into a flood.  My students are mostly people of color, almost uniformly working class people.  They are exactly who the power elite wants disenfranchised.  Don’t let them win that easily.

Get yourself registered and then vote.  I don’t care who you vote for.  Vote Democrat, Republican, Green, Independent, Socialist.  Just vote.
