While casting around for an alternative world view to console myself I realized history has a lesson or two for us. Not all that profound, but freeing, none the less.
For nearly 20 years I have found myself voting for the lesser of two evils when faced with the choices in Presidential candidates. Those in DC just keep taking us closer and closer to the abyss. Interestingly those on the liberal/left also see an abyss, although of a different sort.
So I’m leaning in the ‘let’s just get it over with’ direction. I do believe I’ll be voting Democratically next year! In a country where apathy is what passes for morals and, at least 50% of voters can’t see the forest for the trees maybe it’s simply time for a lightning strike to clear the brush.
Don’t be confused, because I am an optimist. The great unwashed WILL wake up when faced with hard choices. Given it’s head socialism will fail… let’s just get it over with and move on.
