It doesn’t matter what you believe in or who you vote for, this is not the election to ignore.
There is too much at stake. There are several people who are simply not qualified. People who don’t understand or believe in the human way. Yes, I said human way. Not the American way, because that’s not what is at stake here. There are people who are infringing on our human values. Our human rights.
We, as humans, have come so incredibly far. I am personally terrified of us going in the wrong direction. To take a step back in our history and lose the rights so many people have fought and died for.
I’m not going to sit here and tell you who to vote for. I’m not going to ask who you voted for, or judge you for your decision. But vote. Get your ass up and vote. There is far too much at stake for us to just sit back and assume a certain outcome is going to happen.
I’m scared. As an openly gay man…no, as a human, I’m afraid for the future. Believe what you want, but out of the choices we have, I feel there is only one candidate qualified. This candidate may not be ideal, but they won’t run our country into the ground. Not as badly as the rest.
I beg you. Just go out and vote. Even if you believe it’s the lesser of two evils, or four, just go vote. Every vote really does count, no matter what they say. Just. Go. Vote.
Until next time,
