Today, I voted!
I didn’t shower yet today. SORRY. Pugs love my musk.
This was my third time voting in Indiana. Our polling place is right around the corner, and like usual, it was practically deserted. You see, we’re the lone Conservatives in the ghetto south part of a super-liberal neighborhood. We’re Alex P. Keaton in a Family Ties town. Either it was too early for them, or there will be very low turnout in our district again.
I’m pretty sure if you follow me on Twitter, or Facebook, or just in life in general, then you know we’re big “Repuglicans” (as I like to say.) And I commonly joke on here about when I mention my political leanings, I’ll pause to let you all de-follow me. It’s true that young people such as myself tend to be more liberal. But I want to say, in all seriousness, that displaying your political leanings is absolutely NOT a reason for you to dislike someone. I saw a tweet today where someone was telling their followers to stop displaying their political leanings, and that there was 50% chance the tweeter wouldn’t like them anymore if they did. Really? That makes you more ignorant than you think. If someone’s tweeting about issues that you disagree with, disagree. But just because someone’s in another political party doesn’t give you a reason to dislike them. That makes you an immature 3rd grader, and nothing else. Something to remember. I may be Conservative but I have ZERO hate for all you Democrats with well-formed, educated decisions about why your political leanings work for you. I may disagree with those ideals but I respect you for forming your own opinion.
I hope you all choose to vote today! But more importantly, research candidates and issues to make an educated decision. If you don’t do that, I’d rather you don’t vote. Trust me, seeing the poor turnout at all non-Presidential elections at my polling place is hard enough. Seeing the people two years ago clearly voting for someone without any knowledge of their political leanings and views is harder. It’s not just an honor and privilege to vote, but a civic duty. Do your research and get to the polls! Or else you have zero right to complain. Period, The End, Amen.
