Our democracy is certainly flawed, but it's imperfections do not justify apathy. There has been a lot of false equivalence floating around this election, and as a progressive neither mainstream candidate truly suits me. The thing is, it's not just about me.
It's about all of us. It's about how one of the options will affect everyone.
You don't have to love either option, but you do need to be discerning about the actual policies, and how scary one of these options truly is.
I certainly have my own opinion (I voted for Hillary Clinton) but I'm not here to convince you how to vote. That said, I do think that standing on the sidelines is the best way to make sure none of the problems you care about are solved. And sometimes, it means things get worse.
In this case that means.... please, vote.
