Debatable

Posted on Tuesday, September 29th, 2020

Dave!Welp.

That was stupid as shit.

I have to admit that I was only half-paying-attention to the presidential debate because it just doesn't matter. I'm decided. But if I wasn't decided? If I was supporting one or the other and looking for something to change my mind? Boy, I just don't know. Trump was a lying, abusive asshole, but that's what some people like about him. Biden was pie-in-the-sky vague about his ideas, but that's what some people like about him. Trump embraced white supremacy, but that's what some people like about him. Biden is straddling the center and embracing nothing, but that's what some people like about him. Trump is Trump, Biden is Biden, and they likely ain't changing anybody's minds about who they're voting for with this shitshow of a debate.

Over the years I have come to despise the Republican Party and the Democratic Party in equal measure, but the Republicans gave us our current situation, so I despise them more. They have embraced persecuting people I care about, so I despise them more. They have given everything to wealthy elites while fucking over the poor and middle class, so I despise them more. Republicans have seriously lost their way, lost their humanity, and lost their ability to control what they're supposed to stand for, so I despise them more.

And so Republicans lost my vote because I would never vote to reelect President Trump or anybody in the party who supports keeping him in office. And it fucking sucks that Biden and the current crop of Democrats are where my votes go.

Holy shit do we have to get rid of this fucked-up, disgusting, anti-American two-party system which has hopelessly fucked this country. Ranked voting has got to happen to give third parties a chance. Maine is playing around with it this election... which is nice, but it hasn't a prayer of changing anything so long as Republicans and Democrats ultimately control our political landscape.

In order for ranked voting to ever make a difference, the Republican Party and Democratic Party will have to get behind it. And I think we all know that's never going to happen. The only thing that the Republican party and Democratic party hate more than each other is the idea of somebody else getting a piece of the pie.

    While not my first choice, Biden could shoot a unicorn in the head in front of a class of kindergartners and I would still vote for him.
