When it comes to Trump, and American politics in general, far more hours go into shouting on social media and preaching to the choir than campaigning effectively. If you care about this issue, take action instead. I will match a $20 donation to any Democratic candidate (one per person), up to the $2,800 federal cap. If you don’t have $20 to spare, join me in signing up for text banking (https://mblz.io/LzLorH/r), and I’ll match that with a $20 donation instead. Post a receipt or screenshot in the comments below.

For me, just in terms of personal well-being, it feels way better to spend time fighting hard rather than just scrolling through posts and stewing. It seems like a weird quirk of psychology – so many people, myself included, spend time reading and worrying and complaining when it does no good for ourselves or anybody else. As the Buddha said, it’s like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die.
