“Choosing the lesser of two evils . . . “
Many Americans are saying they can’t in good conscience vote for either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. Who’s the least bad? How are we supposed to be good citizens when both parties are offering what most of us believe to be awful candidates? Certainly they’re both deeply flawed candidates.
We are a democracy and as citizens we have the opportunity to vote on important issues and elect representation. Only about 70% of Americans are registered to vote and only about 60% of the registered voters will cast votes.
That means less than 45% of the people will decide key issues and determine representation for all Americans.
We have but a couple options as I see it:
- Vote Your Party
- Vote for the Lesser of Two Evils
- Vote your Conscience
Not voting should not be an option. Many who complain the loudest, no doubt will be the same people who will stay home on November 8 rather than make an effort to go to the polls.
Voting is one the ways as citizens we express our democracy. It is a fundamental responsibility! A chance to choose political representation that most closely reflects our own views.
Our system is far from perfect, but when not everyone worldwide has any voice in their country’s political process, it’s certainly a privilege afforded us as citizens of the greatest democratic society the world ever known and we should take advantage of the opportunity to be heard.
Please Vote-Every Vote Matters!
