Lesser of Two Evils; Celebrate


Bernie-Sanders-Called-Communist-by-New-York-PostSome people are fussing ‘why do we always have to vote for the lesser of two evils?’ Well, Romans 3:23. (For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.) If there is a candidate out there that you think isn’t an ‘evil’, maybe you just don’t know enough about him yet.

Then there is this: the ‘evil’ side of candidates is newsworthy. If a candidate says something the news guys think will get that candidate in Big Trouble, that is Big News and the news guys will cover it to death. If a candidate does something nice or kind or humane— media silence. Not news worthy. So by the time we get from the primaries to the general election, any candidate left standing is a greater or lesser evil.

We need to grow up and realize that no candidate is perfect. Moreover, no candidate can deliver on promises that don’t make sense (free college for all.) More voters need to educate themselves instead of relying on the media to propagandize them, and find a candidate and a party platform they can get behind based on issues, not media hype.

Today I’m celebrating doing the A to Z challenge last month. I didn’t post every day, but I posted a number of days and mostly stuck to my topic, zombie apocalypse. I got some good comments, even though I was taken off the blogroll for no reason I could figure out. And I’m blogging more as a result. This month, I chose 3 topics with the intent of rotating through those topics over the course of the month. Will I get blog readers? I don’t know. But at least I’ll be blogging.

  1. Congrats on finishing the A-Z! That’s more than a lot of bloggers can say. I’m afraid I think this year’s campaigns have shown an ugly side of Americans – they don’t want to educate themselves. They just want to listen to opinions they agree with. Few people change from the political party they grew up with (though I did), so they stick with it no matter what and label any opposing opinions as a conspiracy by “the others.” I hope you have a lovely weekend! 🙂

  2. So glad you were able to finish the A2Z.. I have no idea why you were taken off the blogroll, but I got you before it happened and have added you to my feedly. I read a few of your posts during the challenge, but will be back soon to read more 🙂 As for the candidates this year *smdh* I can’t get behind any of them. Same ole same ole, nothing will change. Maybe we will get exactly what we deserve this time and it will wake us all up out of our stupors. Have a lovely weekend, Nissa.

  3. Wasn’t that A – Z a great challenge? It was exhausting, but it was also a lot of fun. I’m glad I did it, and I really enjoyed the zombie posts. Those were so funny. They also made me aware of how much I don’t know about survival skills. You really know your stuff. I was impressed!

  4. Yay to A-Z…it’s a lot of work. This year’s campaign is simply sad. Honestly, I’m glad to be back in the US because trying to explain all of this to the Europeans I knew would have been an unpleasant undertaking. Embarrassing too.
