To my American readers…
I’ve been harassing the people on Twitter all morning, so now it’s your turn: If you haven’t already, GO VOTE.
Or, as I said earlier, don’t be an idiot – go vote. You don’t get to complain about the morass in Washington if you don’t vote.
Thankfully, I have a slate of candidates that I can gladly vote for, but I realize that a lot of people find themselves in a “lesser of two evils” situation. But you know what? Get your backside out there and vote for the lesser of two evils. There’s a big difference between a poke in the eye and a shotgun in the face, even though neither are particularly desirable. I know that might not sound super appealing for the disillusioned, but progress has always been incremental in this world. Nothing happens overnight. And if we withdraw from the field, collect our toys and go home, then we’re just as much to blame as anyone else.
So that’s the message for today – go out, find a candidate who most closely hews to your policy views, and VOTE. What would Walt do? What would Mr. Lincoln do? What will Ben and Mark say the next time you visit American Adventure if they find you haven’t been voting?
And if you’re not inspired yet, some viewing:
