"If Voting DIDN’T Change Anything"
Author’s note: I am not at all implying here that voting alone is sufficient. This is my response to the shallow, societally-damaging, and completely non-historical and non-empirical phrase by anarchist Emma Goldman, “If voting changed anything, it would be illegal.”
“If you are part of a society that votes, then do so. There may be no candidates and no measures you want to vote for … but there are certain to be ones you want to vote against. In case of doubt, vote against. By this rule you will rarely go wrong.”
― Robert A. Heinlein, Time Enough for Love
Considering what we are being offered ,Heinlein’s words are reason enough.

Southern Democrats jumped parties and turned Red to punish LBJ for signing equal rights. Strom also had a daughter with a black woman and spent his entire life trying to deny his own child equal rights.
Only a conservative/Republican can deny their own child rather than adapt their beliefs to better represent their family/reality.
This speaks to a bigger issue within the South. You see this denial in the way Red States treat their own veterans, their young school children, their pregnant mothers, their college students, their non-white voters, their vulnerable, and their sick in need of health care. [Every Red State denied Medicare expansion]
If elected Red State Cons/Reps could only help white vets, white students, white mothers, sick white people, and most obviously white voters, they would pass the laws in a heartbeat.
The past is prologue.
Joseph Goebbels would be very proud of how FOX “News” has followed his example and capitalized on his favorite techniques.

Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
Re blogging for commentary mostly. How are people so ignorant? The ONLY thing you can buy w food stamps is fucking FOOD.
You can’t even buy pre prepared hot food with food stamps, like not even the kind they serve at the grocery store. U can’t buy anything but groceries. Tell me where I can input my food stamps card to go to fuckin disneyland pls
