Let’s Get This Over With…

Hey.

In case you’re wondering what I’m referring to, I’m talking about the election. Thumbs up if you already knew from reading the title- congratulations, you know me well. I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older or my bullshit detector is unable to be turned off but I cannot wait until the polls close today and my sincerest hopes that everything goes uncontested so we can get on with our lives. I don’t know about you all but I’ll have to go to work tomorrow regardless of who wins.

Can you tell I’m not into politics?

Everyone is so passionate about this whole election. I can tell 20 people that I don’t care about who gets to live in The White House the next four years and I’ll still get to listen to some commentary from 19 of them- the remaining one will probably force a discussion at some later time. “I believe most all major candidates are full of crap,”<— that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

For the most part, life goes on.

This is when one of those 19 folks I mentioned earlier will say, “Yeah but how’d you like it if … gets in and your life’s a living hell afterwards?” It’s when I roll my eyes and remind them that it’s pretty much already been a living hell for most any other group of people and we’re just tardy to the party. I still have to report to work everyday, there will always be bills to pay, we’ve all pretty much already been in modern day wage-slavery, wake up folks, freedom has never been free…

I will still vote.

I just might write in a really, really funny name though. President Fuddlely Duddley or MacIntoshin McRighty-Tighty sounds awfully pleasant after listening to our major party candidates sling much mud at each other in the most un-hip sort of fashion, especially these last six months. It’s a shame and it’s revealed more ugly than answer any question about anyone’s leadership capabilities.

Nevertheless, I hope you’ll vote too.

Fuddlely Duddlely really is a hipster and will completely lift the whole country out of this mess we’re in. Write them in and you’ll see. Seriously, I hope you’ll exercise your right to vote and I’m not gonna tell you who to vote for because as I said earlier, I believe all of them are full of crap, ha. Just go and vote with the hopes of moving this country forward- including every man, woman and child. May the good Lord help us all.

Twenty-four hours from now hopefully we can all begin to find something else- another hot button topic to argue over (sigh). The major news networks can begin to look for other (hopefully non-violent) stories to cover and we can all get back to whatever else is truly important in each of our individual lives.

Let’s get this thing over with!
