The You Who Votes

It’s important to realize that the you who interacts socially with your friends and family and the you who steps into a voting booth are not separate entities. And if you claim to care about someone in the first context, you need to care about them in the second.

You can’t talk about how much you love your immigrant hairdresser and then vote to keep her parents out of the country.

You can’t talk about how much you love your gay family members and then vote to keep discrimination against them legal.

You can’t talk about how much you care about the poor in your community and then vote to cut their food aid.

You can’t talk about how much you care about someone and then vote to hurt them.
