Thoughts About the Election
It was election day yesterday. For what it's worth, I voted. I almost never used to vote. If I don't like what anyone running is talking about, I still don't vote. It's not that I don't care, but it I don't have time to find out what the real issues are then thing go into a category called "Beyond My Pay-grade".
People think I'm cold and call me an asshole for thinking like that, but it works for me.
When the presidential election came around I did a write in vote for Bernie Sanders. Two days before the election I posted on Facebook that I thought both candidates were acting like idiots. As a joke I also posted if anyone else thought the same way they could write my name in on the ballot like I was doing for Sanders.
People must have actually wrote me in on their ballots because there were guys as big as gorillas wearing suits and ties following me around for a couple of months. I wonder if I would have won the vote for president if I had put my post up a couple of months earlier.
I think I would have looked up my old drill instructors and put them on my cabinet. They would get shit done.
