For the first time in my adult life, I don’t know who I’m casting a vote for in the Presidential race.
I can tell you why I don’t want to vote for the candidates presented to me.
Politcally, I don’t agree with just about anything Hillary Clinton stands for. Nothing she wants to implement aligns with what I believe.
Personally, I think she’s a despicable human being; Benghazi, the personal email server (which KILLS me as an IT guy), her financial dealings, the Clinton foundation and so on.
Politically, Donald Trump isn’t a conservative, but somehow he managed to survive the Battle Royale that was the Republican convention. Now, he’s the nominee. If he chooses to line up with the GOP platform, and learn to hold his tongue a bit more, perhaps he could be ok, but I have my doubts.
Trump comes across to me as a shyster, a hustler who will only make a deal when he comes out on top. He’s a blowhard who can’t handle criticism and has to rebutt anyone who criticizes him. While he did manage increase his wealth from a decent amount of inheritance, what does he *actually* own, aside from naming rights? There’s just something about Trump that makes me feel gross.
Gary Johnson: I want to like this guy, but he’s coming across as either an idiot, or careless. Not everyone can know everything, so I’ll forgive him on the Aleppo gaffe, but he just seems a little too out of it to guide the country. I also think he’s a liberal masquerading as a libertarian.
Jill Stein: yeah, nope.
So where does that leave me? I’m still going to the polls and voting for state and local races, but I’m not sure about the top of the ticket. I believe that the only wasted vote is a no vote, but do I really have to eat a crap sandwich just because it’s served to me?
In the end, I know the God is in control, no matter who is in the Oval Office. That brings me solace.
