Pragmatism

So I was recently told that I was not being pragmatic. It was on Twitter so take that for what its worth I guess.

I finally, after a lot of deliberation and soul searching, picked my candidate for 2016. I have no delusions that he has a hope in hell, but the fact is I am tired of choosing between a turd sandwich and a turd taco. Pragmatism is what has got us in to this mess of choosing between a criminal, possible negligent homicidal murderer and a loudmouthed blow hard buffoon.

That’s not a choice. It’s Blackmail. “Pick one of these or else.”

That is not how a system of government is to operate. It’s non tenable. It is also not solutioning, as more and more people are not being represented by those two parties due to differing social constructs and beliefs as we become more of a melting pot.

I firmly believe that part of our current tensions is due to this lack of or misrepresentation by elected officials. Further the lack of accountability to elected officials for their own actions has become a Ruling Class type perception. That is also a non-tenable long term aspect.

Its due these issues that I am voting for Gary Johnson and Bill Weld.

True they may not win. True they are a virtually unknown, thanks largely to the media who is giving them limited air time (albeit more than they usually get).

But I have to vote for the direction I feel the country actually needs to go to. I have to vote for what I feel is the right thing…not the Least Bad thing…for us to do. I have to vote my conscious.

I have been pragmatic since I became a registered voter, with the exception of my first vote where I voted for Stephen Forbes as I believed his system was right. Its time to reclaim a little piece of me, and maybe just maybe bring some sanity back. It’s time to vote for whats right not pragmatic.

It’s time for real change, not a milk carton slogan.
