At Least DVR It… (Opinion)
September 23, 2016
It’s September now, and after more than a year of partisan bickering, divisive politics, and angry rhetoric, we still have 45 days left until the election.
Cue the groans.
Yes, this has been a particularly exhausting election cycle.
We’ve watched a 23-candidate primary, a Russian email leak, an FBI investigation. We’ve watched riots and protests and twitter fights. We’ve heard hatred and anger and frustration.
And the first debate has not even happened yet.
Even I, a political junkie, hesitate to open Twitter for fear that I’ll get caught in the chaos that is this election. I used to watch the news every single night. Lately, I have opted for Friends reruns instead.
But now, 45 days out from the campaign, it’s time to get serious again.
This election matters more than we can imagine. We have two candidates coming from completely different sides of the spectrum. And whether you like it or not, one of them will become our next president. So, instead of hiding under the covers, it is time to accept the people we have nominated and try to make an informed decision.
At this point, that’s the best we can do.
