A Vote For Me...

...is a vote for me.

There are a few things in this world I truly hate:
  1. Clowns
  2. Cotton Balls
  3. Politics
Of course we are in a major voting year and let alone the month of November, I can't watch TV, listen to the radio or even play Song Pop for shit's sake without hearing or seeing a political ad.  I avoid talking to anyone about politics and if someone does bring up their political beliefs, my eyes glaze over and I I give them the "Wow, this is really boring..." look or in some cases I straight up tell them I don't discuss politics and walk away.  Sure it's pissed some people off but no matter what I say or think, they have a different view and want to sway me to their side.  I have better things to do with my time than talk about politics.

Our two party system is a bowl of shit looking in the mirror at itself.

For those of you who know me personally, many of you think I am a strict Republican.  Yeah, not so much.  I would consider myself an Independent in the middle who sometimes leans to the right.  I am registered as a Republican because when I did register to vote, they guy I wanted to see in office happened to be Republican.  Sure I know I can change my affiliation but you know what, I have other things to do than cut through a bunch of red tape to change parties.  And why are they called parties anyway?  I've been to many a party in my time and not once have I ever seen that much hatred.

I watch and listen to ads and I can tell you one thing, not one ad has convinced me to vote for one person or the other.  Each one is saying the other person is lying.  Well if they are both lying, who is telling the truth?  Where I live in Massachusetts, I border New Hampshire and holy crap on a cracker, they are ruthless with their ads up there.  The ones in Massachusetts are just minor mud slinging compared to New Hampshire, they might as well accuse they other candidate of anally raping someone's Aunt or saying so-and-so passed a law to allow infants to eat asbestos in their Cheerios.  What the hell people?  This goes along the same lines as the whole Facebook charitable cause, don't tell me how bad the other person is and what they have done in the past, tell me what you are going to do, more specifically, tell me what you are going to do for me.

As election day looms on the horizon tomorrow, people have asked me who I intend to vote for.  Well I'm going to tell you right now who I am going to vote for....

Joe Walsh.

Of course he would only be running for Vice President so I still need to figure out which bowl of shit I want for the next four years.

Now, this is a candidate I could get behind.

    It doesn't matter who is in office, they all are crooked thieves! #TrustNobody

  2. Oh, NH is the WORST! Sometimes I accidentally watch their ABC affiliate instead of Boston's, and they even go so far as to find bad pictures of the other guy!

    1. Yeah the pictures are bad too, usually of them making some sort of stupid face like they just farted or something.

  3. Gary Johnson for pres.. or hell, even Roseanne.
    Yes, I'm sick of two-party domination, I just want some crazy third party candidate to get on stage during the debates. Oh the feathers that would be ruffled!

    1. There's always a third party candidate, the problem is they are never rich enough to make it out of the starting gate.
