As we all know, Daylight Savings Time has roots is slavery, Nazism, conservative ideology and bigotry. These reasons alone, however, aren’t the reason why many liberals are refusing to live their lives by these ridiculous customs of semi-annual time change.
Many liberals understand full well the ramifications of adding an extra hour of daylight to Earth’s 24 hour daily cycle. As Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rightfully pointed out and addressed, “That’s one extra hour per day of extra heat warming our already unstable planet.”
I don’t care if the rest of the country abides by Daylight Savings Time. I will not. I will not be held responsible for recklessly adding an hour of sunlight to the ever increasing amount of heat our planet already receives. If bigots want to continue heating our planet by changing their clocks, that’s their problem. I refuse to lose an hour. My clock runs differently than yours.

Jason Ronaldo is one of hundreds of thousands of liberals who are refusing to change their clocks one hour forward because they refuse to bear responsibility for adding an extra hour of sunlight, contributing to climate change. Our global environment is dealing with enough problems – whether it be pollution, carbon emissions, income inequality, sexism or fossil fuels – adding an extra hour of sunlight is careless, unnecessary and does nothing but heat our planet more than it needs to be.
Vote blue. Vote Democrat. Vote to end Daylight Savings Time and climate change.
