Damned if you do, damned if you don't


Do y'all think one of your candidates is amazing (I don't even really want to know which one, just your general feelings), or do you, like me, feel like someone's gotta be a little messed up in the head to want to run for President? I know, I know, some people start out with good intentions, but if anyone's read All the King's Men or Primary Colors, you know things change when someone's tasked with winning over a constituency.

  1. I have not read either of those books, but I still agree with you completely. I have HUGE issues with politicians and politics. To the extent that I still don't know who I'm going to vote for on Tuesday.

    1. Remember to bring a coin with you. Then it's either fate or God who decides.

    2. I haven't decided either, Victoria. Or rather, I have decided and then undecided many times.

  2. Just don't pick the wrong side... That will send the country to Hell in a handbasket, for sure!

    I will be so glad when the campaigning is over. I hate the contention. It makes me sad inside.

    1. I'll be glad, too. But don't hold your breath. Campaign are getting longer and longer...in a few years, it'll probably be never-ending campaigning.

  3. I totally agree with you! Do not feel strongly about any candidate, know that the encubant wins over 80% of the time. Do our votes really matter? Do ost people blindly vote according to party lines? They change once they are in and get all the information, clearer views of what they can really do, can't do, change, not change.

    1. Yeah. I do my civic duty, but I do it grudgingly. The whole thing kind of depresses me. Of course, it's all relative, I suppose. I'm glad I don't live in post-revolution France with all those bully Jacobins.
