Patriotic activities

As Donald Trump is a certified traitor to this nation,   any actions that oppose his candidacy are automatically patriotic. 

Here's my actor buddy Matt working the refs, tweeting at various media outlets (this is only one example, you can see more here) for their typically weak job of checking Donald Trump's incessant lies.

As for me, in addition to my Facebook posts, I am going to Philly, my old home town, with the Clinton team on Sunday to get out the Democratic vote. I will be reporting on that soon after.

Many people are panicking about Donald Trump drawing even with Clinton, as this NYTimes article notes:  Hillary Clinton’s Backers Thought She Couldn’t Lose. Now, ‘I Can’t Go There.’

Then there are those who traffic in angst professionally, who are straining to consider even the chance of a Trump election.
“The possibility of that is too horrifying to broach,” Larry David, the “Seinfeld” co-creator and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” star, wrote in an email. “It’s like contemplating your own death.”
Surely Mr. David had done that, too?
“I can’t go there,” he said.
And good old Stephen Colbert makes an excellent point in this clip - the previous three presidential races were also tied in mid-September. So maybe hold off on that Canadian citizenship application for the time being...
