It is time to assuage those fears and to get out the vote.  If each person desiring more progressive legislation spoke to one person per day, no amount of gerrymandering or money will allow this nation to regress.    Preach to the people, "Don't sell your voice".   We only have to look at the Afghani people.  Under threat of violence they voted.
