ON SCOTUS BECOMING $COTU$
We live in an age where Chris Christie apologizes to a large donor for misspeaking, because he knows the right words can get his campaign billions.
We live in a world where two brothers can spend money to kill a local, Tennessee train program.
Or convince 40% of American that they don’t need government health insurance.
We live in a world where money talks, loudly.  And the more you have, the louder your voice.
Was there any doubt the Supreme Court was going to rule this way?  The same people who said “corporations are people?”  Of course they were.
So we go to the page, or twitter to complain.  And what trends on twitter?  ”CancelColbert.”
Meanwhile, every state that didn’t like an election result in is making it more difficult to vote.
So here’s the deal.  This mid-term is the most important election of your lifetime.  PERIOD.   It will then be followed by the most important of your lifetime.  PERIOD.
The house and the senate are set to unravel healthcare for millions.  And shift more money from the poor to the rich.
And 2016 will decide the fate of the Supreme Court, who have been systematically making this country less fair for years.
So you can tweet and meme.  You can raise the issues you want to raise.  But if you don’t vote, if you don’t get your friends to vote… if you don’t take this anger you have today and use it to leap over the hurdles you will have to vote…
…there’s nothing this place, twitter, instagram or democracy can do for you.
THE ONLY POWER YOU HAVE IS YOUR VOTE.
If you don’t use it, you’re the one that’s rolled over and accepted it.
So let’s #GetAngry and #StayAngry.  But more importantly, it’s time to #GetFocussed and #StayFocussed.

    My vote, my participation is my Right. Don’t vote? I don’t want to hear your complaint about how things are.

    Sometimes I’m not sure we are equal at the ballot box. I genuinely wonder if there is a certain amount of rigging going...
