Voting Blue no matter who

Tomorrow is Super Tuesday. Fourteen states and American Samoa will all participate and more than 1300 delegates are up for grabs. As a result, I’m sure that by the end of this week the field of Presidential hopefuls will have narrowed.

Elections and especially our primary process can be frustrating because most people’s first choice for candidate do not receive the Party’s nomination. Only twice in my life have I supported a candidate who went on to get the Democratic Party’s nomination; Barrack Obama in ’08 and again in ’12.

The sad truth about our two party system is that most of the time one votes for the lesser of two evils rather than someone they wholeheartedly support. The two front runners for the Democratic Primary, Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden, are what I deem to be the lesser evil. While I have no idea what to expect from Super Tuesday and in the months that follow, I do know that I’ll be #VotingBlueNoMatterWho.

  1. I’ll vote green and not in-between. I will not support someone almost 80 who could easily be dead before their first year ends. Importantly, get the Senate into the Blue column (better to impeach you with, my dear) and we will work for a multi-party system (maybe parliamentary)

    Thank you for your candor! I always try to remind people that when the general election rolls around, it’s not a marriage, you aren’t looking for your perfect match just the match that most aligns with your beliefs. A lot of people get lost in the “my candidate or no candidate” mentality and seem to forget that 1 of the 2 finalists HAS to win and sitting out just means your voice isn’t heard at all.
