Election Day Blues.

I’m going to go to work, put in a solid day, leave work to go vote, and hopefully not run my car into a god damn telephone pole at the thought that one of these two candidates will be the leader of the free world by the end of the day. It’s gross.

I usually steer clear of politics because people are thin-skinned and they don’t like it when you say something bad about their candidate. They treat it as if you’ve said something bad about their mother— or their dog. But, I’ll make an exception today.

I’m ashamed that this is the best we can do — that after all the campaigning these are the two for the job. And if we were to speak truly, they’re not!

They say that the cream rises to the top. Well, for people with IBS, shit rises to the top of the toilet. That’s what this is— America has IBS and politics is her toilet.

If we were a smarter country, smarter people, we’d welcome conversations about other candidates. People like Gary Johnson and Jill Stein would be in the debates— and be topics for the dinner table.  I just find it hard to believe that everyone falls so nice and neat into these two categories— Republicans and Democrats.

I can only hope for, and wish luck on whoever wins. I hope that they are able to put aside biases, and the nasty rhetoric from the election, and actually govern for the people. Though that is definitely easier said than done.

That’s all I’ve got for now… I gotta go vote… It’s my duty!
