Are you like me? Do you sit around on election day, wishing that you could be a part of the Democratic process, but woefully ignorant about the candidates and their stands on the various issues?
I'm like that every November and every May. But it doesn't stop me from voting. I have a system, see. And I'll reveal it here for the first time.
Just think of some asshole you know. Everybody knows at least one, right? Every family has at least one. Every group of friends has at least one. And most workgroups have dozens.
Now, think about who your favorite asshole would vote for. I've found that it's usually pretty easy. Maybe they've bombarded you with their political views for as long as you've known them. That's how I picked my asshole.
Ewww, that sounded gross.
That's how I chose my asshole.
Okay, that's better.
Then today, all I had to do was go vote the exact opposite of everything my asshole would vote for.
I cancelled out the fucker's votes.
And, to me, the fact that I totally negated that asshole's participation - well it's just fucking hilarious to me. I mean, he lives and breathes politics, and all I do is drink beer and shoot pool. But I, with 30 minutes of effort - including drive and standing in line time - was able to pretty much wipe out his reason for existing in the first place.
So, don't waste another election day. Do something useful. Make a difference. Find yourself an asshole and render him irrelevant.
If you don't know any assholes, I've got news for you. You're probably the asshole.
