Volume Six, Chapter Four: “Undecided” Voters and the 2016 Election- Random Thoughts
I’m making this last post before the 2016 Election a Random Thoughts edition. I’m SO over it, and have a ton of stuff going on personally. I’ll cover that in the year-end post.
I have never, ever longed for an election to be done as I have with this one. It’s the most desperate, negative, and outright contrived campaign season I’ve ever seen.
The GOP candidate is absolutely right that this election is rigged. And his ascendancy to main super-villain is the clearest example of that.
The DNC candidate had to have said super-villain as an antagonist, but SHE’S her own toughest opponent.
The last 16 months have had an obvious story line in play. The woman is supposed to slay the evil man-dragon. What if America breaks character, and the dragon wins?
The DNC has their woman, and the GOP has their loose-cannon pop culture star. Together, they’ve been in the public eye for over 60 years, and have the baggage to prove it.
Are the days of slowly building candidates into national winners over? It worked as recently as eight years ago.
Are people all over the Internet praising their candidates because they actually like them, or because they want to drag others down with them as they make bad choices?
And why is it that most of the defense of one candidate consists of tearing down the other?
Are “undecided” voters actually such, or are they, as is so often the case this time, just too ashamed to admit who they like?
And finally… Who’s going to be the next great bad guy in 2020? Mike Rowe? Caitlyn Jenner? Jake from State Farm?
Well… go on and vote. Enjoy. And by the way, we all know the narrative demands the woman win, but just for the hell of it, I’m putting money on the orangeman. Any takers?
