10 Questions

Taylor Swift speaks for the first time about politics

Taylor Swift on social media color known. In a comprehensive Instagrampost let the American popstar know that they did during the midterm elections in the USA, the Democrats will vote.

Is she a Republican? Or is she a Democrat? For many years there was uncertainty about the political color of the popular American singer. Up to now, so. Swift: “I have always been reluctant to keep my political thoughts to share, but through some events in my life and in the world over the last two years, I think there different now.”

The singer of famous songs such as ‘Shake it off’ and ‘Look what you made me do’ in the coming midterm elections, on 6 november, two Democratic candidates votes in her home state, the conservative Tennessee. She continues to work for LGBTQ rights, gender equality, and against the fearsome and verziekende’ racism in the US.

‘Scary’

“Oh, how I in the past, women have voted and that in the future also hope to do, I am not behind Marsha Blackburn.’ Blackburn is the female Republican candidate in Tennessee. “Her voting record in the Senate, I find scary,” says Swift. “She voted against equal remuneration for women and men. They voted against a law that women must protect against domestic violence, stalking, and rape. She believes that gays and lesbians are excluded may be as a customer and she does not believe that they are allowed to marry. These are not my values in Tennessee. I will vote for Phil Bredesen and Jim Cooper.’

Swift also makes a call to all young people to inform themselves. “Please, inform yourself about the candidates in your state stand up and vote on who is the closest to your values represent. Many of us will never be a candidate find out where we are 100 percent behind, but we still need to vote.’ The singer is pointing everyone to it that it is a privilege to be allowed to vote.

I’m writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I’ll be voting in the state of Tennessee. In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now. I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent. I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love. Running for Senate in the state of Tennessee is a woman named Marsha Blackburn. As much As I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in the office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me. She voted against equal pay for women. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples. She also believes they should not have the right to marry. These are not MY Tennessee values. I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives. Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values. For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway. So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count. But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do. October 9th is the LAST DAY to register to vote in the state of TN. Go to vote.org and you can find all the info. Happy Voting! ??????
