Hello everyone, sorry it’s been so long since I have posted a blog as you might remember, I had a death in my family and I had to leave the state to attend the funeral. Then after I had gotten back things in my family took a while to line back up. I’m back now and will continue to post blogs for time to time. This blog is going to be about the political debates and the run for the next president. We all know that the news is all and only about the candidates campaigns and the polls and who is better than who. It seems to change every day. My brother Rick and I have been having some of our own debates about this topic and I plan to share of of those with you today.
To give some background, I April am a Liberal and Rick my brother is a die hard Republican who is having a very hard time right now :). I shouldn’t joke but it is pretty funny. OK, so here is how it went.
Me: Hey Rick, how’s it going?
Rick: It could be better
Me: What’s up?
Rick: Have you been following the news? Watching the candidates have at each other?
Me: No, I try not to pay attention what they are doing
Me: It doesn’t who wins, nothing will change
Rick: Things will change, it just depends on how they will change
Rick: Are you going to vote?
Rick: On what?
Me: If I feel like it when the day comes
Rick: You should vote
Rick: Because it matters
Rick: So the right person wins
Me: Who is the right person?
Rick: The right person is the one that you think is going to do the best job
Me: What if I think that none of the choices are going to do a good job?
Rick: Then vote for the one that you feel will be better than the other one
Me: What if I feel that no matter who is chosen they will do a bad job just in a different way than the other person?
Me: Who are you voting for?
Rick: I haven’t decided yet
Me: Not Trump? Isn’t he the republican candidate?
Rick: I haven’t decided yet
Me: What will happen if I vote for Clinton and you vote for Trump? Won’t that just cancel each other out?
Rick: No, that will just add one vote to each side
Rick: There is no cancelling, just adding and who ever has the most is the next president.
Me: Thanks Rick
Rick: No seriously, you shouldn’t think of it as one vote cancelling another vote out, think of it as just adding a vote to the side that you want to win
Me: That seems reasonable enough but what if I don’t like any of the sides and don’t think or feel that any of them should win.
Rick: Why do you not like any of the candidates?
Me: Don’t you feel that the way they choose to run their campaigns is totalling focusing on the wrong thing?
Rick: How do you mean?
Me: Like how they just try to make the other side look bad, they try to make us of us think that their opponent is a shady character and that they are not, they don;t focus on anything positive and truly no matter what they say, the president doesn’t have all power to make anything that say happen, a democrat president can say they will do “this thing” but all the republicans in the government will stop it from happening and vice versa, so who really cares anyway, right?
I’m going to leave it here for know, this discussion goes on for a while, I’ll continue it in a little bit, thanks everyone for sticking around.
