I tend to avoid using this journal to express my political views, mainly because I don’t think this is the best format for reasonable discussions about complex subjects. I’ve seen way too many threads devolve into meaningless blather, which does more harm than good.
I will, however, express one very strong opinion on the subject. Vote. Apathy is a luxury, not a right, especially in these troubling times. It is your responsibility as an American citizen to participate in this most fundamental act.
Instead of justifying why you will or will not be voting, spend that time and energy educating yourself on the upcoming election.
