simply don't boo, vote

tonight's speech by obama was amazeballs awesome. actually all the speakers, from bloomberg to biden to kaine (who really hit his stride in the latter half of his speech and whose eyebrows i enjoy) knocked it out of the park.

there are so many reasons why this election is important. but (and this is kind of frightening) one of the best expressions of why it is so important belongs to our forefathers:

we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. 
i honestly believe these rights are at risk if donald trump is elected president. i know that hillary clinton isn't the perfect candidate, but i also believe this is true:
you know, nothing truly prepares you for the demands of the oval office.  until you’ve sat at that desk, you don’t know what it’s like to manage a global crisis, or send young people to war.  but hillary’s been in the room; she’s been part of those decisions.  she knows what’s at stake in the decisions our government makes for the working family, the senior citizen, the small business owner, the soldier, and the veteran.  even in the middle of crisis, she listens to people, and keeps her cool, and treats everybody with respect.  and no matter how daunting the odds; no matter how much people try to knock her down, she never, ever quits. 
that’s the hillary i know.  that’s the hillary i've come to admire.  and that’s why i can say with confidence there has never been a man or a woman--not me, not bill, nobody--more qualified than hillary clinton to serve as president of the united states of america.
it's okay if you don't agree with me. after all that's why this is a democracy. but when i think of the country i want for my kids, donald trump is not the man in charge. that makes things simpler for me come election day. i always vote my conscience, i hope you do too.
