7. It seems to me that those who vote Democratic ticket no matter what and then say well we

can't do anything about economic inequality or torture are displaying the same hopelessness that those who have given up on voting express. They just haven't stopped voting yet. Sometimes it does seem hopeless, but I'm sure there have been lots of times in history when things have seemed hopeless. When I feel hopeless I look to our own history; the civil rights movement, the women's rights movement, the labor movement. There must have been times when it all seemed hopeless. But they didn't stop fighting to make changes, and I refuse to stop fighting to make changes even when it seems hopeless.
