I've tried to turn the radio station every time a political ad comes on, but it seems like every station I like is running them all the time. We don't watch TV in real time, so we don't have to see any of the TV ads. Thank you, thank you, thank you to the inventor of DVRs. I owe you the last vestige of my sanity.
Pete and I voted weeks ago. I have voted in major every election since I turned 18. And I have voted in any and all elections since I was about 23. Never have I felt more at a loss for whom to bless with my Constitution-given right to vote than this year. I'm a die-hard liberal, mostly, and I've never voted for a Republican. This year, in the two statewide races for senator and governor, I was faced with two Can'tStandYa Democrats running against two wealthy Republicans whom I just don't agree with on most points.
So while I cast my vote of yea or nay on the many propositions out there, and while I voted yea or nay on the many taxes and fees proposed, I didn't select anyone for governor, senator or representative. I almost sat out voting at all. That's how depressing the choices are.
On this Election Day, I could care less. I have no faith that anyone can solve the issues facing California. Maybe it's time to head elsewhere.
