A Small Request

I really had no idea what she was up to.

We can’t rely on Pinky and her magical wand to get us out of this.

The one thing we don’t want is for the “Biden steps down — Democrats lose” to become a self fulfilling prophecy. It would be good to let your Senators and House rep know your opinion on this. Feel free to use or modify my text shown below, that I am sending to my representatives today. You can call their offices if you’d like, but most offices have a contact form you can use. Let’s flood our reps with the opinion that the most important thing is to defeat Trump and stave off Project 2025 and the Trump dictatorship.

This is most useful if you have Democratic Party reps, but it wouldn’t be amiss to send to Republican representatives as well.  You can copy and paste my text if you’d like.

Message to Senators/ Representative:

I believe that President Biden is the most capable person to decide whether or not he has the will and the energy to see this election through. He has been an excellent president, passing many initiatives that benefit a wide swath of the American people.

I believe him when he says he has the stamina to both run and defeat the former president. He has an excellent Vice President in Kamala Harris, as well as a very capable cabinet. He has more he would like to accomplish on our behalf and I think that constantly questioning whether that is the case is harmful to our prospects in November.

One bad debate should not be the beginning of the end for the American experiment. The former president at the most benign interpretation would bring in a regressive era with the loss of many rights and personal autonomy.

I believe President Biden is the best president I have seen in the 12 presidents of my lifetime. Please stand by him and let him finish the job.

      It’s always been one of my favorites too. Pinky at her Pinky-est! I love how big Ernie’s eyes are when Pinky says “it’s okay… his credit card already cleared”

    All great minds think alike if I may be so bold as to say, re: your message. It was on my list of calls to make tomorrow to my reps. I like them to hear my voice when I have something to say of this nature.
    Thanks for your Public Service Message. You always do the right thing Bob/Anne.

    Thank you Anne, I agree wholeheartedly and I’m disappointed in the Democrats backing away from Joe Biden. Your idea of writing Republican Reps is excellent! Chicago is hosting the Convention and I hope the City brings us better luck than the last time it hosted. This election is CRITICAL for the health of our Democracy.

      Oh geez! I forgot that the DNC convention was in Chicago. I remember the 1968 one. Hope this one will not de so tumultuous or consequential in a bad way. I know we
      ve been saying this for a while, but this really is the make or break election for Democracy. Take heart from the UK and France elections. While the fascists in France got almost 1/3 of the seats, the progressives won the majority, with the centrists solidly in second place. We MUST do this.

    I personally would vote for a rabid schnauzer before “Mittens” but I’m devastated too. As a person of a certain age, I’m looking at a man who may struggle at times but is overall good hearted and wants what is best for the country.

      I do not doubt that Biden will do what he feels is best for the country and the office. I support whatever he chooses to do, but I will not count him out just yet. I hope that once he makes it clear beyond a shadow of a doubt what he decides, that the jackals will quit baying for blood.
