The great Thomas Phillip “Tip” O’Neill was once credited with the phrase ‘all politics is local.’ But surprisingly that was actually a quote from his own father. Thomas Phillip O’Neill uttered those words right after Tip lost his first election. He was trounced and his father was giving him a little advice on how the world actually works. Politics is only important when it affects you. So if you want to win in November 2022, or in 2024, you must talk about that which affects the majority of Americans. Gender is that issue. It must be addressed and we need to bring the world back from the brink.
