So in case you hadn’t noticed (which I’m sure you haven’t), Libertopia has been pretty quiet lately on the whole fantasmagoric, utterly life changing and galactic news-shaking issue of voting in America. That’s because, quite frankly, we’re not really too worried about it. That and having a ton of other things coming up that’s not really related to the island of Libertopia (apart from not getting stuff posted as regularly as we used to). But anyway.
So I’ve been sitting here thinking, “since Libertopia is such a MAJOR libertarian news outlet (not), I should really get with the program and issue an official voting guide on who I think you should vote for. Because, you know…uh….all the huge alphabet soup news agencies, movie stars and social media czars are screaming out that we better vote for you know who, or the entire world as we know it will end. Just like it has threatened to do every four year cycle since they started figuring out they could make dump-truck loads of money off this thing.”
Which leads me now to the moment you’ve been waiting for with baited breath since you began reading this post. Y’all ready for this? My voting recommendations are as follows:
For President, vote for whoever the heck you want to vote for. Or don’t vote at all. I mean seriously. Did you think as a libertarian I could really do that to you? But I will say this. I’m so mind-numbingly sick of the whole election thing here in America that I could projectile vomit for about four days straight from here to Antarctica. Every where I go, the near cult-like fervor surrounding the election of another limp balloon that sells used-cars on the weekend all while moonlighting as a politician seems like it’s the only thing people can think or talk about. And as sad as it might be, I even recall people after the 2012 election saying they woke up the next day to learn that their political champion hadn’t been elected, and were depressed for a whole week. Pathetic. Why let this whole thing run your life like this? I’ve tried to ignore the absurd media circus, social media rants and mind-numbing post-debate discussions as much as I can, and my quality of life has increased in happiness by about a factor of about 99.99 percent.
Sure, I’ve been through these elections before, and am familiar with all the hysteria that is pumped out to a multi-billion dollar tune. But honestly, i’m my own person. I have people I know and care about in my community. People I respect and honor who I can actually get to know. And ultimately, some clown that I’ve never met just isn’t worth a whole lot of my time. But…but…no. That’s it. Be your own person. Take responsibility. Spend time with those you love. Get to know your neighbors. And just enjoy your life 🙂
