I just heard, yet again, someone talking about who they’d like to vote for (in this case, within the GOP crop of candidates) versus who they will vote for. Their reasoning for the choice is that the person for whom they wanted to vote “can’t win.”
Man, I’m getting really sick of this self-fulfilling prophecy.
Of course the person you want can’t win if you don’t vote for them. Vote for the person you want or we’re going to keep getting watered down, unqualified candidates who we all thought everyone else could stomach.
The whole point of voting is to exercise your right and infuse your opinion into the final results.
If we all vote based on what we think are everyone else’s opinions, then we’ll never know what we really want.
Wow. It’s just so convoluted…
