So, I’ve mostly avoided politics recently since I find it leaves me feeling vaguely dirty after an encounter. I did make a rather impassioned plea against voting out of fear. That said, the first debate is tonight, so here are my thoughts on the matter.
Neither of these incompetents has any idea what America means to the Average American. They do not know what a typical day looks like. They do not know our struggles, our fears, our joys and our goals. Both will try to claim that they are the best choice for the Average American, but, in reality, they’re both shitty choices.
Unfortunately, until we wake up to the fact that only we can demand better, this is the refuse pile gleanings we’re stuck with. Yes… we. We are the problem. They’ve told us you need to have a lot of money to run for office, we believed them. They told us voting for a third party candidate, or a no party candidate, is throwing your vote away, and we believed them. They told us you have to have experience governing to get this job, and we believed them.
Until we wake up, we’re stuck with these bozos.
So given that the current scenario is more like a carnival ring toss game than an election (either way you will be disappointed in your prize), here is my recommendation.
Neither Barack Obama nor Mitt Romney has any idea who we are, but Mitt Romney has displayed a clear lack of willingness to find out.
That’s the best I can do.
