I am confronted with a dilemma that I have never faced before. I see not one viable candidate on the presidential ballot that I trust to do the right thing for this great country of ours.
I have laughed at those who have talked about wasting their vote on Mickey Mouse and the like, but that is exactly what I feel like in this upcoming election.
Our politicians will pontificate and present all kinds of facts, ideas and solutions, but in the end, where do we stand in being able to live a safe, productive and healthy life, free of threats and intimidation?
Those same politicians have created such a cumbersome political process, it is amazing anything gets done politically at all in this country. It seems to happen only when the political parties will benefit from it, not because it is the right thing to do. My gut feeling is that this country will have its first female president because the other guy scares the hell out of me.
Never miss a local story.
