If you are an undecided voter at this point in the election
- You’re not paying attention. You literally have no idea who is running for president and what the difference between them is.
- You haven’t yet figured out what is important to you, as a voter and a citizen.
Because the two choices couldn’t be more disparate.
Yes. I was thinking this last night. I don’t recall an election in my lifetime when speakers at the conventions presented such starkly opposing points of view. (Yeesh 2000?)
The sad part is that it’s because the GOP has gone bat-shit-crazy right (remember guys, it was that commie socialist Nixon who created the EPA and expanded Social Security and Medicare) and Obama is smack-dab-middle-centrist who has only recently voiced support for social issues most people in his party have supported for years, and gets major applause lines for saying wowy revolutionary stuff that was decided 40 years ago, like a woman has the right to choose. (Slow down there, tiger.)
Yeah whatever obvs I’m voting for him but this is not the country I expected to be living in when I was growing up and learning about the Civil War, the abolition of slavery, women’s suffrage, the civil rights movement, the women’s movement, Silent Spring, Cesar Chavez, Roe v. Wade, all of it. I thought we were building something greater than this. (Why is half the shit we’re talking about this year even up for debate??)
