In my opinion…

In the 2016 presidential election, we had no other choice but to choose from two of the most highly unqualified, miserable excuses for presidential candidates.  All I could think at the time was, “This is the best we have”?  I stood in that booth for quite awhile trying to decide if I wanted to vote for one of the most dangerous, murderous, conniving, manipulative, deceitful women in our history, or, did I want to vote for a narcissistic , serial adulterer, misogynist, amoral, intellectually and emotionally stunted con man who can barely read? And who is so consumed with his own self adoration he can barely function.   How do you choose between what had to be the most unacceptable excuses for candidates for our presidency?

In the three plus years since that election, I have become an avowed political atheist.  I don’t believe one of them.  I refuse to take part in what amounts to a national joke these days.

IF YOU DON’T VOTE YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO COMPLAIN?

I most certainly do have a right to complain.  Me not voting is a vote of “no confidence”.  Why isn’t there a selection for that?  And, if you pull the lever for yet another horrendous candidate, one you have to know isn’t going to follow through on any of the wildly exaggerated promises they made while campaigning, in what way does your vote matter?

In any event, regardless of candidate or political affiliation, you are going to get the same thing.  Whichever “ism” you shake in fear of, be it fascism, socialism, communism, you are going to end up in the same place.  The end goal in each “ism” is a ruling class and the rest of us left in the dirt.  It all depends on which sales pitch you are going to buy into.

I will not be forced to choose between two fumbling old men

You do as you like in this coming election, if they don’t find a way to stop it from taking place.  But I personally will not be forced to choose between two fumbling old men, neither of whom appear to be cognizant of the words coming out of their mouths.

Continue to cling to these political party’s who play you for a fool on a daily basis.  As long as you hang onto all this bogus right v left, conservative v liberal BS, they got you where they want you.
