Caution: Children at Play

The presidential election is a few months away. We now have time to take an honest look at the candidates and decide which one is best suited to run the country for the next four years. We have time to look at the qualifications of each candidate and try to project how they will govern. We have a chance to listen to their plans for the future. We have a chance to consider how their choices are going to affect us in our everyday lives and the lives of our fellow citizens of the world. We can be thoughtful and careful when we decide who to vote for in November.


We can act like children and decide to take our toys home. I always thought that people who consider themselves liberal/progressive/socialist had a bigger world view than their own front door. I always thought that it was the conservative/republicans/libertarians who would only think of themselves. I thought they were the ones who could be talked into voting against their own self interest. 

I can boil this election down to three words: THE SUPREME COURT. If you don't understand the ramifications of those three words, then frankly, you shouldn't be voting. 

And this is all I have to say about that.

If brevity is the soul of wit, you are one seriously soulful dude! Great post, it boiled everything down to the essentials.

I've go to admit, read up on Jill Stein a little and I find her an empty suit mouthing words with only slightly more meaningful than Trump's.

I guess I would be more receptive of "extreme progressive" candidates if Ralph Nader hadn't thrown the 2000 election to Bush junior.

I do my best. I have no idea where you find the energy to write the fantastic stuff you do. Great post today.
