The Lesser Evil is Still Evil and I Won’t Vote For It

OK “Vote Blue No Matter Who We Screw” adherents, here’s a fact you’ll just have to either deal with or die mad about: I’m voting for Progressive candidates and Progressive candidates only. If none are available, I will not settle for the least shitty of the bunch and consider myself noble for doing so, because being bullied into accepting evil as opposed to EVIL is not an admirable trait.

Don’t like my ‘tude? Then get off your ass and help us change the system that leads to this mindset instead of vote-shaming and vote-blaming. And don’t kid yourself for a minute — millions have come to the same decision I have for the same reasons.

If nothing changes, nothing changes.

THEY aren’t going to welcome, never mind initiate change, because the system as we know it works beautifully for them. It’s up to us, those most adversely affected, to break the cycle.

The stakes are far too high for this “Vote Blue No Matter Who” horseshit. The only difference between the DNC and the GOP is gay wedding cake. If you’re too blinded by partisanship to realize you’re being played by BOTH parties, then you’re far too stupid to enter a voting booth.

Yes, I called you stupid, so I must be a Russian troll. I hear that all day long. Slight pause while I sob delicately into my lace hanky.

Until lesser-evilism fans are prepared to offer up some new solutions instead of voting in the same sociopaths that have led to our current dismal state of affairs, please shut your derp-holes. It’s tiresome and beyond disheartening to hear such idiocy. And I said please.

No More Corporate Democrats. Ever.

Feel free to deliver any complaints to that brick wall over there. And bang your neo-lib melon into it repeatedly while you’re at it. It might shake some residual common sense loose. And even if it doesn’t, it’s a risk I’m willing to take.
