libertarians who say not voting is the same as casting a vote because “none of these options are good enough”
actually ANYONE who says that
are you so blinded by your own self-absorption that you don’t realize the rights of a LOT of people are genuinely at stake, here?
look, if this election were less polarized, I could give a shit less if you wanted to make a meaningless statement by not voting. but by not voting in THIS election, you’re saying to women, people of color, queer people, and everyone who isn’t rich that you care more about your own ideology than you do about the reality of those people losing their rights and living in a world that is much worse for them.
and you can just go fuck yourself.
This is a call to arms for every Tumblr user who is tired of the hate, bigotry, racism, sexism and homophobia spreading on Tumblr. For too long we have reported Tumblr user http://ricksantorum-2012.tumblr.com/ to Tumblr staff only to have little to nothing happen. For too long we have put up with his hateful bullying on this great website that we call home. This is a petition to tell Tumblr staff that we have had enough of this bigoted trolling. This is not an attack, this is a rebellion. This is the first step to a better Tumblr. This is change, and this can only happen if we all unite against the evil that has plagued this great website.
If you want Tumblr to ban the user ricksantorum-2012 from tumblr, if you want to put an end to his bullying and hate, if you want to stand up for what is right and what is equal, all you have to do is reblog this post. That’s it, we don’t need any personal information or input. All we need is for you to reblog this post once so we can show Tumblr how united we are against this bigoted hatred. When this post has reached an amount of notes that we feel will make an impact we will send it to Tumblr staff.
Even if this petition fails we can at least pride ourselves on knowing that we took a stand.
We can pride ourselves on knowing that we fought back.
Reblog this post to sign the petition.
Reblog this post for change.

Saying “the Civil War wasn’t about slavery; it was about states’ rights” makes about as much sense as saying “The Revolutionary War wasn’t about England, it was about freedom.”
Yes, it was about freedom FROM ENGLAND, just like the Civil War was about states’ rights TO OWN SLAVES
your intellectual dishonesty is showing
On a completely different note, I’m in a good mood. I drank tonight without smoking, I’m acquiring a taste for wine, and goodnight kiss.
That sound you here? Oh, that’s his campaign imploding.
And then I hear my mom say “‘Yes I does.’ What the hell is that? She sounds like she belongs on a cotton field. It’s ‘Yes I do.’ Have some pride in yourself and get it right.” in response to something a woman said on Judge Judy.
Not even beginning to get into the fact my mom grew up in a primarily black neighborhood and speaks exactly like the woman she was insulting more often than not, I’m starting to lose what energy I had to try and combat these types of statements. Everytime I do, she pulls out my “uncle” Robert as a shield, as well as the same old tired arguments. “We’re so good friends with Robert, you call him UNCLE. We can’t possible be racist!! We’ve had tons of black friends. They all agree with us! You haven’t seen enough of the world. You don’t know what people are really like. You’ll find out we’re right when you’re our age!” and etc.
“We’re old, thus we know better and our racism is justified” does not fucking fly. I’m out of ideas as to how to make them see that.
