Granted, not all of these people would be eligible to run for president, making the list slightly preposterous; however, the preposterous rhetoric 'Anyone But Trump' begs for a preposterous retort.
The same applies for the equally preposterous rhetoric 'Anyone But Hillary.'
Is this really what fuels a person's choice for president, who they are not rather than who they are?
If the reason to vote for a person is because they are not the other person, is that logic or is that a reaction?
Reactions do not require thought, but logic does.
So, if people vote for a candidate out of thoughtless reaction, what kind of a vote is that?
If people say that not voting is throwing away a vote, then how is voting for someone without applying thought any better?
In general, voters advocate that they have to vote, that they must vote, because that is their right; and they will vote for anyone no matter how bad the candidate is, because that is their right...to vote for bad candidates...just so long as they are not as bad as the other candidates.
Perhaps that is the problem with the current state of affairs: Everybody's voting and nobody's thinking.
But all the votes are not getting counted anyway, so what does it matter?
I mean, can anyone even prove their votes from their own ballots have ever been counted, ever, in their entire lives? Or at least since the year 2000.
Admittedly, I may not be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt to every person that all the votes aren't getting counted; however, does that matter if no one can offer proof that all the votes have been counted?
I mean, if there is no hard, physical proof via documentation that all the votes are being counted, either accurately or at all, wouldn't that only support the argument that the votes are not being counted?
Now there's a thought to consider.
Happy voting for 1 of 2 choices!
