In the run-up to this year’s Presidential election, Rob Connaire, aka Politicabbie, has found a way to take politics back to the people: Take a ride in his Main Line taxi, and he’ll offer you the chance to express your political views, on camera. As he says, “The average bear knows a lot more than politicians give them credit for. Neither my customers nor I have a $10,000 check in our hand, but if we band together a series of conversations, who knows what we could do?” The Citizen will publish Politicab’s videos, which will also be uploaded to YouTube. Maybe our electeds will take heed.
In this episode, Politicab talks to Jaiyana, a certified nursing assistant, a reluctant Clinton voter not optimistic about the next four years. She’s voting for Clinton because she can’t fathom a Trump presidency and feels that Trump supporters “want to make it harder for us than it already is.”
