I just wrote what was probably an incoherent diatribe explaining why Rubio and Cruz would be more respectful President’s that Trump would be on someone Facebook wall. I mean, politics aside (because Cruz and I could not be more different on the political spectrum if we tried), I trust they wouldn’t openly mock a global leader or another government official. Anyway – I word vomited on a facebook status where someone said Trump would be different in office and I really wish I had gotten more sleep last night because I’m certain I had a good point to make but I’m pretty sure I lost it in a haze of exhaustion.
You know how there are those sensors on some cars that won’t start if you don’t pass a breathalizer? I should not be allowed to be on Facebook if I haven’t had at least 6 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Today is not a good day to be running on heightened emotions and minimal sleep.
But seriously, y’all. If you look at some of the things Trump has said in the past he probably (it’s hard to tell what stance he’ll take in office) aligns with my politics more than Cruz or Rubio but I do NOT want him to be the presidential candidate because I respect the position of President too much. I don’t trust he’ll “be different” just because he said he would be. My kid promises to not tell Deez Nuts jokes to his little cousins and I trust him more than I trust Trump.
Maybe. Wesley really likes his Deez Nuts jokes. It’s a hard habit to break.
I’m going to let you guys in on a secret. I’m still not sure who I’m voting for. I was so fired up for Obama in ’08 and I just haven’t felt that fired up about anyone this time. I BOUGHT MY KIDS OBAMA FOAM FINGERS. I’m not foam finger excited about anyone. Which I hate because both E and D are both fired up for Bernie and I want to be one of the cool kids. There are things I like about Clinton and Bernie. Maybe even things I love about them. Bernie aligns more with my politics but I really trust Clinton to be as effective as possible in this obstructionist era of politics. (Yes. Both sides are obstructionist.) But neither of them get me EXCITED.
But you know what I can’t do? Give away my vote. A lot of dems in Alabama are talking about voting on the Republican ballot to just help ensure Trump doesn’t win and I just can’t do it. It leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I get it – politically speaking – but it feels like the women who helped me get this right to vote would be really mad at me for being manipulative with the right. Maybe they wouldn’t care. Maybe they’d be impressed with the deception. Either way – I’m voting for me. And just praying Trump doesn’t win the nomination because I’ve already been really fragile lately with my emotions and that may push me over the edge.
Go vote if you can today. And then be self-righteous about it on Facebook so maybe you’ll guilt your friends into voting.
