It is almost over!
Hey, Gang! Hope everyone had a fun Halloween. I had things to d so didn’t get a chance to go anywhere or dress up, but still got some chocolate. Remember to not it all the candy at once!
Anyway, it’s one week until Election day. By this time next Tuesday, we will (hopefully) have a president.
Thank the gods.
This election has been a mess from the very beginning. Out of all the candidates there were during the primaries, we end up with these two. If that isn’t a commentary on how screwed up our political system is, then I don’t know what is. Not only that but this may have been the best year for 3rd party candidates, but the two most visible are both completely incompetent.
Despite what Trump has said and what people are fearing, I think next Wednesday will be a good day. Whoever wins will give a gracious and generic speech and whoever loses will give some prewritten admit to defeat and then hopefully shut the hell up. The political ads and banners will disappear and maybe, juuuust maybe we can actually come back together as a country.
But until that day we’ve got some business to do. Besides picking the asshole and chief, there are local elections to worry about. Study up on your local candidates, read up on your local ballot questions. That kind of stuff will affect you more in the immediate future that the White House will. Vote with how you feel on that one. Most of those are yes and no, so it’s not much a matter of “voting for the lesser of two evils”. Don’t let assholes try to intimidate you, block you from voting, and try to be all up in your business. That’s illegal. Raise some hell if someone is being illegal.
You want to vote a write in? Great! Find out how to do that correctly in your area. I am. *ahem*
After you do your civic duty and all that. Treat yourself. Grab a doughnut or get some pizza. And then that night you can watch the results roll in on the news, or watch something else. Watch porn if you want. I’ve heard “Nailin’ Palin” isn’t too bad if you want to still be politically minded.
And then when you wake up on Wednesday morning, you will be just the same you were Tuesday night. The world didn’t end. You still have to go to work. And life will go on with whatever happens at the voting booth.
Voting is important. But you will live.
