What an election year
What a crazy election year. Trump is in the hot seat for they things he said about women. Never thought I'd actually see him apologize. It was just for a moment before he went on the attack again, but he did apologize. At the same time Hillary has to deal with an email release of speech transcripts she wanted to keep secret.
In my opinion we have a choice between two despicable people. I don't care who you are going to vote for and won't argue about it. Both of them are an embarrassment. Sorry, that's just how I feel. It would not hurt my feelings if both of them dropped out.
Why don't we try four years without a president? Spain has been running without a national unity government and some Spaniards think it's going better.
Maybe a small part of me is an Anarchist.
Perhaps there are an infinite number of parallel worlds where anything is possible. We just happen to be living in one of the more unlikely ones. Maybe there are worlds where voters get to choose between two really good choices. Wouldn't that be nice?
So the question is: why even vote? For me, there's nobody at the top of the ticket that I like. To counter that I'm paying careful attention to everyone else on the ballet. The President is not a dictator. They have to work with Congress. It's important to make sure we have some adult supervision in Congress for a change.
The state and local politicians can mess me up quicker than the Feds can. In these crazy times it's critical that good people get in. I don't care what party affiliation they claim as long as they can work with people for the greater good.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
