With the election day being today in Indiana, I wanted to discuss my decision. I will weigh the pros and cons of voting and how I would vote if a ballot were in front of me.
A vote is like a rifle; its usefulness depends upon the character of the user.
The lesser of two evils: I’ve done this. It doesn’t feel good, and I’ll never do it again. I won’t believe the propaganda of “the most important election of our lives” every 4 years (now 2 thanks to Trump).
To vote is not violence: This is a discussion for the hardcore Libertarians. I don’t think that voting is in fact enacting violence on another party. Because it is so engrained in the system, a vote either way doesn’t move the needle on this.
To not vote is a vote: This is because it’s a statement that says, “I do not approve of the candidates listed, up to the system as a whole. As such, I will vote with my time by putting it toward a more productive end.”
Vote with actions: This is how I will vote. I will vote by working with We Do Better to help organizations access the funds they need to continue to do better at helping people. I will vote with my actions in my work to create economic liberty for myself so it doesn’t matter who’s in office. I will vote with my voice on my blog, podcast, and daily conversations to explain the tenants of liberty.
