Throwing The Election.

November 2, 2010 at 1:38 pm (Uncategorized)

Quick thought for election day today.  A friend on Facebook asked the rhetorical question of whether anyone else had the courage to vote independent.  My thought:  voting for third party candidates, in almost every case, is about as courageous as sitting around the living room in a bathrobe all day and not voting at all.  I realize we’d all like to be idealists and true to our own belief systems, but voting is an adult thing, and requires an adult choice, and adult choices frequently involve choosing the better of two flawed and imperfect things.
