The people down ballot often have the ability to ruin your life more than either Clinton or Trump can. Wanna know why weird ordinances, awkward state laws, and downright inhumane laws (like North Carolina’s HB 2 or Houston’s version of HB 2) get passed?
Because nobody stops these people from getting elected. The general public is always so caught up in the Presidential Election that they forget about the state races and downballot. Our best current bet to fixing our Government is hitting it at the source, local and state elections.
And remember to vote for your Governor whenever you get the chance, stop people like Pat McCrory from obtaining office.
