I’m getting so fed up with this; all the young people who’ve never voted before, never even been interested in the political process, now they are and what do they get as their first example of ‘democracy in action’? They get two Democratic candidates acting like toddlers on the playground fighting over a tricycle; one who shouldn’t have it for a lot of reasons but determined to get it anyway, whatever the cost, and the other too small (not ready) for it but still determined to get it. This race is to determine who’s going to govern this country, not who’s going to get the high score on a video game. It’s not for a gold medal; it’s for leadership of 304,216,307 people. (As of 2:30 PM EST on May 31)
The person who wins the Democratic nomination doesn’t ‘beat’ the other person; whoever gets the nomination is the person that the citizens of this country felt was the one they trusted to lead them for the next four years. Who do you trust? The bully that’s slinging mud trying to blacken (no pun intended) the name of the new person on the playground because they’re afraid that person is better than them? Or do you trust the person who realizes that this is not some kind of schoolyard contest, and understands that they are dealing with people’s lives here? The person who isn’t out to win a personality contest, the person who isn’t trying to win because they feel like something is owed to them, but is trying to win because they feel they’re better for the job? This is what you have to decide, who do you trust?
