I don't post political stuff much. But with the impending party conventions, I kind of feel I have to.

Sometimes in elections in the US (maybe much of the time?), you don't vote for a candidate so much as you vote against the other one -- essentially voting for the lesser of two evils.

This is one of those times. )
Funny how the viable lesser of two evils (by FAR) always ends up being a Democrat, even though I never meant to be a straight ticket, single party voter like my parents -- in fact I vowed I wouldn't be.

But while I have occasionally voted for independent/third party (e.g. Green Party) candidates (never at a national level, only in local or state elections), the office of President is too important -- and independent/third party/write-in candidates too non-viable -- to just hand it over to the Republicans by voting for anyone other than the Democratic presidential candidate opposing the Republican presidential candidate.

Especially now.
