Supporting a Politician is Not Pledging Loyalty Forever

This times a goddam million:

“The idea that our politicians have to be relatable and “likeable” to be electable doesn’t do much in terms of actually creating change that will benefit people. At a time when many people rely on GoFundMe to afford their medical bills and children are wearing bulletproof backpacks to kindergarten, I don’t really care if my politician is meme-able or TikTok savvy. I just need to know they can help the people who need it the most, even if it means falling short of the perfection stan culture expects.”
