    Rise, sisters, rise. Defeat Donald Trump

    a request for all women and their men to get out and vote..


    Rise, sisters, rise. Defeat Donald Trump

    Eve Ensler

    Hillary Clinton is not perfect, and we must push her. But if Trump is elected, permission is given to degrade, deny, diminish and destroy us and our rights

    Dear women of America and men who love women,

    All week I have received emails, texts and calls from my sisters around the world. They were as diverse as you get sisters in Congo fighting an epidemic of rape and brutality, and sisters in Iceland striking across the country protesting pay inequity. Sisters in Kenya fighting against genital cutting, and sisters in Iraq building safe houses as fast as women are being taken and enslaved. Again and again there was one panicked question: is it possible that Donald Trump could become president of the United States?

    They are all trying to make sense of how a man like this could be on the brink of becoming the most powerful person in the world. A man who has openly admitted and bragged that he can grab women without consent by their genitalia. A man who has now been accused by numerous women of harassment or assault. A man who is fending off a lawsuit from a woman who claimed she was raped by him as a 13-year-old. A man who has an ex-wife who claimed in a divorce deposition that he raped her. A man who appears to project his own sexual predation on fictional Mexican rapists and innocent African American youth.

    My sisters wanted me to remind American women that this election is our election. Yes, we could have the first woman president. But more importantly this election will determine whether we stand against blatant misogyny, or whether we reward it. It is an election which has unleashed the subculture of sexual violence in America and that could be our breakthrough, or our breakdown.

    much more to read: https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...mp-us-election

    If a Trump presidency represents "permission" to degrade, then a Hillary presidency represents "permission" to be corrupt and selective in our lawfulness.

    Well we all know Trump will make p***y grabbing legal and will force every boy and man to do it.

    God this fear mongering is out of control.

    Do you know that George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were against giving women the right to vote?

    Bet you idolize them though however don't you?
    Thanks from Goofball

    We idolize them for their historical accomplishments. No one would be foolish enough to say they'd be qualified for leadership, unadjusted to our time, today.

    Of course I do say "no one" with the reservation that you may just be about to double down and say they WOULD be qualified. You'd be the one.

    Anyway, Trump's campaigning in Minnesota, precisely because he's outta rope.

    He's gotta turn at least one Democratic stronghold to have any chance, the Latino turnout almost certainly means Nevada and Colorado are gone, and Florida will be very difficult.

    Apples to oranges. Why do you think Putin is actively supporting Trump?

    Not really. Washington and Jefferson had their faults. But they're not running for POTUS. An egotistical, rude, and unqualified womanizer is. His name is Trump.
