2020 Election Watch: Vote Like Your Life Depends on It | TISOT Ep. 3

2020 Election Watch: Vote Like Your Life Depends on It | TISOT Ep. 3

The U.S. election fever is building, and so is anxiety around what the outcome will be. In their third TIS Off-Topic episode, Sharon and Lisa discuss the orange one’s regime, the ways in which he has harmed Americans, and why he must be voted out at all costs.

3 Big Takeaways:

  1. Be strategic: “People are getting a little lost in the sauce. They are not being strategic. It is not about whether you are in love with Kamala or Joe. It is not a love story. It is a vote. It is a strategic move. All you’re doing is making sure that the orange one does not get in again. That is the totality of it.”
  2. Be afraid: “You think things are bad now? If you vote him in again they are going to get exponentially worse…People who have experienced authoritarian and dictatorial regimes are warning us that this is how it starts. It is a very, very slippery slope.”
  3. Be resolute: “If you have not already voted, please go and vote. Your future and your children’s future are at stake…Equity is at stake, women’s rights are at stake, your health is at stake. VOTE.”
