Not Too Early for the Soap Box

Well, well. Nate Silver's 538.com now (post RNC bump) has Trump taking the majority of electoral college votes in November. It's way too early to get upset but not too early to say this for what will probably be 20 times before now and then.

Realistically you can vote for Donald Trump and what he stands for or you can vote for Hillary Clinton and what she stands for. That’s it. Those are the choices. If you choose NOT to vote for either or vote for Trump, you are responsible if Trump wins. Hillary is making her pitch in spite of the lies and obstruction thrown at her by the GOP and Donald is making his but in the end it is the voters who will decide, and to quote some lyrics, “if you choose not to decide you still have made a choice.”

It troubles me that people don’t understand that elections aren’t about their feelings and emotions. You look at which candidate is more likely to do things you like and which one is more likely to do things you don't like, and depending on your level of psychosis, you choose accordingly. Your emotions may impact how involved you get or if you donate or if you are enthusiastic about voting or if you go out and work to elect a candidate, but your emotions shouldn’t be shaping your decision. It's math and logic, get emotions out of it. Judging by how many poor and middle-class people have been voting GOP and against their self interest of the last few elections there is some serious psychosis out there.

Oh, and don't bother with reminding me that there is a Green Party and a Libertarian Party. They are there for people who refuse to think clearly and insist that emotion plays a part in all of this. Spare me.
