So, I'm watching Project Runway tonight rather than the debate. Why? Because at least it matters to me who wins Project Runway. Whereas the "winner" of the debate has no bearing on my life, because I've already decided who I'm voting for for president. I'm voting for Cynthia McKinney. Since you probably don't know who that is, she's the nominee of the Green Party.
I don't think that she'd be a better president than Obama or McCain. But I don't think either of them deserves my vote. I cannot, in good concence, vote for either of them. Despite the fact that 4 years ago, I thought they'd make a good ticket, I'm now convinced that both are all about politics as usual. And so, I'm casting my vote to represent my hope that some day, we'll actually have a choice in this country. That a third party can have a chance to really be seen. I'm not convinced that it will happen any time soon, but until a major party actually puts forth a candidate who doesn't anger me, I'll vote for whoever I think has the most likely chance of hitting the 5% mark.
Our system is screwed up. I don't know how to fix it. But this is the best step I think I can take at this stage.
