Are you voting today? I normally dont touch on politics on this blog because I generally have a very limited understanding of it, and prefer to talk about things where I can actually fake knowledge. But here’s what: I’m not undecided and I am going to vote, but I do think the country should do away with both parties and start over. I feel like no matter who I vote for, I’m voting against my own best interests somehow. How can I vote for someone who doesn’t believe in the basic human rights I believe in? But then again, how can I vote for someone I feel to be incompetent? I feel like both candidates pander to their core voters: who are hanging way more left and more right than I hang. I feel like candidates and parties are so marginalized that everyone has become a one issue voter. And people just have to choose the one thing that matters MOST to them. And after watching all of those debates, I thought: omg high school debate team.
And furthermore, I live in New York, where my vote is essentially useless because of the electoral college. I know, I know, its supposed to be somehow important, but to me it just lowers the incentive to even bother for people who don’t live in swing states.
So yea, you can all tell me I’m a moron now.
