The political arguments don’t seem to have changed much over the last week or so. Of course, there is new information almost daily, but it seems like most people’s opinions are set, or at any rate, most of the people who are on my facebook page, which is not an accurate cross-section of the general population.
Actually, now that I think about it, while writing this, I think people have given this election a bit more thought than previous ones, and maybe that’s a good thing. Maybe not, it’s a roll of the dice. I remember a lot of women voted for JFK because he was handsome, and a lot of people voted for Reagan because he seemed an agreeable sort of fellow in those movies he was in with Bonzo the Chimp. Whether or not those were good choices, we’re still arguing about today.
Not everybody puts a lot of thought into how they vote, and that’s Democracy. So, for those who don’t want to think about it too much, here is my handy-dandy guide for who you should vote for:
If you wanted Sanders, and are generally a left leaning sort, you should vote for Jill Stein.
If you wanted Sanders, and are generally a right leaning sort, you should vote for Gary Johnson.
If you are either white and racist, or a gun nut, or the kind of person who used to think it was funny to put firecrackers into cat’s butts when you were a child, then you should vote for Trump.
If you don’t mind corruption, and war, and having the big corporations control the world forever, then you should vote for Clinton.
If you are the kind of person who isn’t that interested in politics and is sort of confused by what’s going on, you should not vote. It’s O.K. You’re allowed to do that. Really.
Somebody’s going to win, probably nobody good, and most of us are just going to spend the next 4 years seriously pissed off, no matter who it is.
