1. The Pledge: Silence = Death, How We Save Our Nation

I made a pledge today, and I ask you to do the same. All evidence points to Democrats inadvertently strengthening Donald Trump. In our rage and naivety, we are empowering the very thing we want to destroy: MAGA. I will give you three concrete reasons to make this pledge. Share it with others and make it our mission until DJT and MAGA are erased.

Mentions by Media Type: Biden Maga
No Trump post was made by a Trump organization; they were all by liberal media. With the exception of two posts, all of Pro-Biden posts were made by the Biden administration; none were made by liberal media or persons that identify as Democrats.

The credo Silence = Death is very powerful to me. Turning twenty in 1981, at the start of the AIDS crisis, I quickly learned that without a strong and demanding voice, you could be easily dismissed. I use that same conviction, Silence = Death, to put an end to Donald Trump and MAGA ideology.

Google Trends; Donald Trump is talked about more than Biden in every state!

I was at a gathering last week. It was nice and filled with smart, informed people. During the conversations, two women in their thirties expressed their frustration with both parties. They claimed both were corrupt, that Biden was draining the country’s resources, leaving no future, and driving us into a depression. None of this is true, but this is what they believed. We can debate the facts, but not their perception of the situation. How did we get here?

Three reasons: Ego, Money, and Algorithms. What occupies my thoughts? Not Biden’s successes, but the latest Trump horror show. We are drawn to the spectacle, and like all things negative, it takes a devastating toll on us. Our obsession with Trump, according to studies, is weakening the sense of right and good. Constant exposure to violence moves liberals towards conservative thinking, which cannot be allowed. Instead of supporting our candidate, we are feeding the monster, and this must stop. It only increases his power and weakens us. How does this work?

  1. Ego: We all succumb to it at some point. We talk, like, post, share, and ruminate on our outrage. Has a good outcome ever come from a singular focus on the bad? No. Whether raising a child or winning a war, focusing on the good in us spurs us on. Don’t let the desire for likes or losing sight of real reasons blind you.

  2. Money: It drives everything! Your power lies in opening newsletters, reading posts, and liking and sharing content. Content creators, both amateur and professional, need to feed their audience, and you will get more of what you engage with. Every time you give attention to DJT or his minions, you ensure more will follow. Stop acknowledging him, and the content will change.

  3. Algorithms: They are more powerful and insidious than most think. They determine our likes and dislikes but the real power lies in grouping people based on online behavior and other data. When you like a post, more similar content appears in your feed, and more people like you see it too. What it doesn’t do is make it prevalent in feeds of people unlike you. It also limits non-conforming content in your feed. If you like Trump, you won’t see Biden. How does that help?
