Scout’s most excellent video:
I watch this anytime I’m feeling a little apathetic and it always kicks my ass. Your votes aren’t nothing. Your contributions aren’t nothing. Your letters and phone calls and e-mails and protests and signs and talking to somebody on line in the friggin’ grocery store, none of that’s nothing.
We do what we can do. We don’t have to do more, but we can’t do less. We get back up, damn it. I’m glad I didn’t quit in 2002 and I’m glad I didn’t quit in 2004 and I’m glad I didn’t quit in 2006, and someday I’ll be glad I didn’t quit in 2007. I’m gonna keep pushing for the things that are important to me because that’s my repsonsibility, what I do. What the pansy-ass politicians a-skeered of Fox News do, that’s on them. I know what I’m doing to be right with my conscience, and that’s all any of us should be thinking about. Be pissed, be disappointed, but just like last time, get back up, and write, and call, and work, and fucking fight.
Not. One. Inch.
