Vote shaming won't fix this country: standing for progressive policies will!
I am writing this because of the time capsule effect. I am not trying to beat this thoroughly dead horse. There are some people for whom this will fall on deaf ears. But for those of you still sifting through the rubble of the 2016 Presidential Election, I offer you this picture.
