so this is happening,,

As you may know, we are in a campground, changing our lifestyle to full time camper. I've made posts of what I am finding within campground. Seems "we " are at 36 "members" on the Joe train. they are asking me now, let's meet we have a clubhouse, lets talk. I did not want to be the leader, did it too much in real life, but, I think I'm gonna do it. Central Fla. this many folks want. maybe me old and truly not afraid of what I believe, I'm just gonna do it. Talked to Mgr of Campground today, we in. We get
Clubhouse, for meetings. which is community property, Trumpers here do not realize that. They will fight. Mgr, not owner, is on our side.
She said to me, you pay same rent. uhhmm,, Blue Wave is rocking,, even in Central Fla.

as long as safe for LilBit, I cannot and will not, put a LilBit in danger in Trump country. Yes I know, but think about my mind, they carry guns. I am cautious, but hopeful. We will do this!
I am careful with all I speak to in campground. I will be careful, after all, I have a LilBit,,and a NEW kitten! My job to protect them first. Sometimes, it is not just as easy as making a post. For all you youngsters out there, you control our future, I am old, and respect you and your thoughts. Understand me, I have my life to defend, my daughter.
I will not question young voters, but as an old guy, I'll feel free to tell them,ITS ALL OF US

As the leader of the group.You will create a blue wave in the campground. And you will get a crap ton of allies.

I am very protective over my kitty Othello.

I would take a bullet for Othello. He saved my life twice.

Once he saved me from diabeties that I did not know I had. He has taught himself to get my attention,then lead me to the bedroom nightstand where I keep my gluconometer.

He kept me from falling into a stupor,by jumping all four paws on my chest.
When I got aware enough to realize what he was doing ,I realized something was seriously wrong with me, I called 911. Ended up being admitted.

And another time before the diabetic situation he saved me from severe depression and a trigger that made me very suicidal.

He was being so sweet and staring into my eyes with his gold green beautifulness.
I realized that day he loves me and he needs me.
And that I love him with my whole heart.
I swore to him I would not kill myself. Though sometimes I feel like it.
I admitted myself to the psych ward because it was impossible to manage.

The love of pets amazes me. Along with their ability to understand things going on with us that we don’t even understand.

Whenever I have been ill, feeling down, or just out of it my cats always take care of me. I don’t know what I would do without them.

We're just a stupid and lazy people. We can't figure it out. We must be told by media. Even campers. Even Florida campers. Camper media rocks.

Though it is a bit weird around here. It feels pretty blue to me. But I was shocked to see how red the voting history of Seminole county has been for decades.

I have high hopes for Florida this year though.

As an odd side note - I’ve been on here for years and just recently have found a lot of people from this immediate area. I don’t know if it was just me not paying attention earlier - but glad to see it either way.

LilBit is happy,, yes, we in Trump Country. But what if every American only made decisions where they felt safe? I made my decision to make my Daughter happy, first, I'll do my politics now. And I have adjusted since LilBit happy, so, what's your point? we ,as Dems,,only go where we agree with others? I am kinda confused by your post.

of voting, like where you vote and how you cast your vote, not who you’re voting for.

And what does “LilBit” mean in your answer?

Thank you for taking on the burden. And hopefully it is a rewarding burden.

There are more of us than are obvious in Central Florida. I have been learning that lately.

Depends on where you are of course, but in 2016 both Hillsborough County (Tampa) and Orange County (Orlando) went to Clinton. As disappointed as I was with the rest of the State I was glad two cities I’ve called home didn’t let me down.
