Trump favorite Amy Coney Barrett (l) could replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg (r) on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Mad at Trump’s third SCOTUS pick? Vote, because elections have consequences.

Elections have consequences. Remember that next time somebody says your vote doesn’t count.

Because here’s the reality. Donald Trump won in 2016 when nobody thought he would, including tens of thousands of people who stayed home on Election Day. Well, here’s what staying home cost you.

Two-hundred thousand Americans dead from coronavirus. Countless Black people shot by police. Racists killing people at protests while the president claims there’s good people on both sides. And now, just about a month before the next election, Donald Trump will put his third Supreme Court Justice on the bench, a woman named Amy Coney Barrett, who is the exact opposite of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Three Supreme Court Justices is a third of the court, and those people are gonna sit there for life, deciding what you get, deciding what you don’t, deciding what rights you’ll keep. Deciding what rights you won’t. 

And all because too many of us believed some fool on social media who said our votes didn’t count. But you know what? Elections have consequences, and if we don’t know that by now, then shame on all of us. 

At a time when millions of people are out of work, and many of those jobs will never come back, elections have consequences.

At a time when America is so divided you would think we’re two different countries, elections have consequences.

At a time when the rest of the world is looking at us like, “What the heck is wrong with y’all?” elections have consequences.

I wish I could tell you there was something you could do about the damage that’s already been done. I can’t. But I can tell you this. Vote.

Vote because you saw what happened last time. Vote because you don’t want it happening this time. Vote so that you know better next time. 

Vote … because elections have consequences.
