With the election season almost over, relief is just around the corner. No more angry, non-factual political ads; no more cable news ignoring U.S.-Russian Relations plummeting; and of course, no more stupid comments like, "They're rapists", "What is Aleppo?", and "The Basket of Deplorables".
But, in these last Nine Days, we have important decisions to make, on the local, state, and federal level. Since all of the people running for president this year have, to put it lightly, flaws, perhaps try and focus more on the congressional elections taking place in your state.
Let's be honest, Congress has hardly gotten anything done over the past several years. They are gridlocked politically. Unless we start paying more attention to those many elections, compared to the election of one individual, we will run our country into the ground.
Congress has the power to write laws, declare war, and overrule the president. So why does it matter if we get a criminal or racist into the White House? Even if the President vetoes a bill, Congress can overrule the veto with a 2/3 vote. So please, elect a congressman or congresswoman that will do what you want, not what the future president wants. As Ted Cruz put it, whether you agree or not, please, "Vote your conscience".
So this November 8th, I urge you to do two things.
1) Do some research on your state's candidates for the House and the Senate, and make wise choices to vote for more independent individuals.
2) Duck and Cover!!!
