Black Lives Matter, College, and Community: Natalie Lane @Open_Lane Obama did not support Marriage Equality when I voted for him in 2008. But he seemed easier to lobby than McCain. #Hillary2016 Nov 2, 2016, 3:12 PM from Manhattan, NY 9 RETWEETS 8 LIKES Natalie Lane @Open_Lane 3h Obama finally supported marriage equality during the 2012 election. I voted for him even though it was an election flip flop. #Hillary2016 t2 Natalie Lane @Open_Lane If my community and I had stayed home for not having a perfect candidate, we wouldn't have marriage today. #Hillary2016 3h t 8 4 Natalie Lane @Open_Lane 3h We have ALWAYS had two imperfect candidates. We have ALWAYS voted on the one that was easier to lobby. One who might listen. #Hillary2016 4 Natalie Lane @Open_Lane 3h #Hillary 2016 is more progressive than both 2008 & 2012 Obama.

He will not “evolve” for us no matter how much we lobby.  I know we all want and deserve more progress. Many young voters want to sit out unless a candidate has it all. Voter silence is a mistake that will hurt us. Staying home won’t “revolutionize the system.” The system is used to youth voter apathy. They ignore us because we won’t pressure them.  We have to use our voices, vote for the person most likely to listen, & shout & lobby till we achieve our goals. Please. It works. Apathy doesn’t. #Hillary2016 to protect our progress from Trump. #Hillary2016 so the person we lobby for the next 4 years might actually listen. It does seem like she’s starting to, or we wouldn’t have seen this:
