Extra notes: So here we are, at the crux of history. Tomorrow's election is one for life and peace, or doom and death. Pick one. There isn't a third option.

If you think I'm being a bit over the top here, then you're an ignoramus. You need to quit your toxic little Facebook bubble, and probably every other social media bubble you're in, and start listening to informed and reasonable political scientists, climate scientists, historians, Holocaust survivors, and former Presidents. You need to learn the truth. Now.

What outrages me more than anything, even Trump, are the indifferent in this country, for tomorrow they will literally be able to exercise absolute power by way of their sloth and apathy. In America, the indifferent are those truly in power, for they hold the very reins of our future. Whether the Democrats win tomorrow and that future becomes hopeful once more, or the vile Republican Mass Death Machine wins, assuring global catastrophe, doesn't matter to these people. All these massive efforts to get the vote out are efforts aimed at them. It's infuriating.

Our future literally hinges on enough of the indifferent waking their dumb asses up and choosing not to be, and going and voting. If that doesn't keep you awake at night, then nothing will. Sleep well.

I'm going to try to make it a normal day tomorrow, including with this blog. I'll keep up with the news, of course; but tomorrow night I'll make dinner and watch TV with Kye, as I normally do, and try not to get myself all bunged up over outcomes no one will likely report on until Wednesday at the earliest.

Indifference in this day and age is immoral--just as immoral as being a Republican. The indifferent, by dint of the effect they can potentially have in this election, are in fact nothing more than Republicans themselves. Both groups are wholly and completely wrong.

I daily pray for the end of the Age of Indifference. It needs to come to an end before we do. I also pray daily for the end of the Republican Party. If Abraham Lincoln could see what has become of it, he'd recoil in horror.

If you haven't already done so (Kye and I have), vote tomorrow. Vote like your life depends on it. Because--whether you're indifferent or not--it does.
