Mike's Midterm Tsunami Truth #40
We Win Either Way
We win either way today because love and kindness always wins out over hate and greed. Sometimes it takes a while. And when we win today (or tomorrow or 2024) we will fight to better the lives of everyone — including and especially the lives of those burdened with hate and confusion over what it should mean to be an American. Our love and compassion — and the ability to have a Political Party that knows how to present a cogent, compelling and convincing message — is how we will heal the politically despondent, those who have given up and are sadly staying home today, those who’ve been easily tricked into voting against their own best interests, and those who are succumbed with a mindless fear of “the other” who are going to hurt them or take what their white Christian leaders have promised them is theirs.
And if we “lose,” as the media predicts — an outcome they will have willed into existence by convincing just enough Americans that the price of a gallon of gas is more important than the human rights of an entire gender and more important than the actual Democracy itself — then we will live to fight another day. A lie has a short shelf life when exposed to the resounding Truth. There will always be more of us than them, so let’s just figure out how to truly activate and embrace both that majority and the 80 million who are nonvoters. One way to do that is to follow through on our promises: Tax the rich, support the working class and their families, all women are equals, and we create a new generation of civically-engaged critical thinkers who read and act and love.
I woke up today in good spirits, thoughtful of the future, but in need of a good laugh and a small dose of humanity. So, for this 40th Tsunami Truth, I thought I’d share with you a brief collection of cartoons, memes, greater truths and a child who plays her accordion for a field of cows. I hope this helps you get through the high anxiety of this day, brings calm to your soul, and real hope for what lies ahead.
Oh — and if you haven’t voted yet, there’s still time! Even if you are not registered, in 19 states plus D.C. you can still register in-person AND vote today at the polls. Here’s the list: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Washington D.C., Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Utah, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. And here’s where to find your polling place.
And now for Mike’s Election Day Funny (and not so funny) Pages! Enjoy.
We’ll talk tonight…

Thank you, Michael! We can never stop fighting for a better, kinder, America.
You’re brilliant Micheal. I’m going to completely ignore the news and twitter and opinion posts for the next five days and focus on the work that needs doing. Compassion gets us through
