The Average American - Who Will You Be Voting For?

The Average American - Who Will You Be Voting For?

Voting is only another few days away and I'm left wondering if you're ready to vote and for whom you want to cast your one vote towards? Given Obama's crackdown on whistle blowers and his expansion of our imperialist policies in Afghanistan, I wonder if that has made anyone else take a moment and consider if they really should give him a second term.

If not Obama, then what? He may have his issues but he seems a lot better than the alternative and a vote for the greens isn't going to go very far. Romney would be far far worse of an option in the long run. Judging by his supporters, especially on women's rights, I wouldn't want him as a president. Though, given how two faced he is, it is hard to really gauge his actual position on any social issues. Given that I don't live in a swing state and it's going to go all towards the democrats.

Then again, there's always the choice of Nobody since voting doesn't really matter anyway and is in many ways a farce. Not to mention that every politician ever is pretty damn evil. I would suggest that if PSL is on the ballot in your state, which would be the following;
  • New Jersey
  • New York
  • Vermont
  • Arkansas
  • Iowa
  • Wisconsin
  • Colorado
  • Utah
  • Washington
Then perhaps you should vote for PSL as your protest vote.

You folks intending to write-in candidates should also bear in mind state election laws. For example in Illinois you can only write in candidates who have registered with the state. Writing in Mickey Mouse or Lindsay Lohan will both be the same as not voting at all for that particular office.

You could also just vote for Jill Stein and then go back to drinking heavily till it all blows over. That would be a pretty good thing, all things considering.

In fact, just drink heavily anyway. You'll need it.
