我們想讓你知道的是

美國中期選舉臨近(11月6日),小天后Taylor Swift發帖支持兩名民主黨候選人,又呼籲年輕人要投票。

美國小天后Taylor Swift首次就政治表態,公開支持兩名民主黨候選人。

28歲的Taylor Swift在Instagram表示:「以往我不願公開對政治的看法,但在過去兩年,我的人生中以至世界發生了一些事情令我改變了。」

「我支持為LGBTQ爭取權益,任何基於性取向或性別的歧視都是錯的。我認為,我們的國家存在種族主義,這是多麼可怕、令人作嘔卻又是如此普遍。」她表明自己的投票原則始終著眼在候選人是否會維護人權,並為人權而奮戰。

她說支持兩名田納西州民主黨候選人:角逐參院席位的布雷德森(Phil Bredesen),以及角逐眾院席位的庫柏(Jim Cooper),又表明不認同共和黨候選人Marsha Blackburn。

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 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! 🗳😃🌈

她說,雖然選民未必找到政見上百分百符合自己心意的候選人,但必須投票,呼籲支持者多了解候選人的主張和政綱,在當中找出跟自己價值最相近的候選人。她又說很多聰明、有思想、充滿自信的年輕人今年已夠18歲,可以投票了,呼籲未登記為選民的年輕人盡快登記。

Taylor Swift的帖文在首個小時已經獲得36萬個讚,未夠10小時已有超過120萬個讚。

田納西州向來是共和黨佔上風,但近日的民調顯示共和民主兩黨的差距收窄。
