“It is better to be uninformed than misinformed”
– Orville Hubbard, former mayor of Dearborn Michigan
As we gear up for the 2020 election (and it’s only 2019…yeegads), I’ve heard a lot of reports going to undecided voters and unaffiliated voters. Now, these two groups are not the same. An unaffiliated voter is one who has decided to without any adamant allegiance and will support candidates, not parties. Cool, great.
But undecided voters? Forgive me for being blunt, but what kind of an absolute moron, what kind of heartless, spineless, soulless monster could look at the modern world and say ‘you know what? I just don’t know’. Politics in America has polarized to the point where you have two options. You may think they are both bad, but they are not in any way comparable. And you damn-well know the differences matter big-time. You might be an anarchist who just wants to see the world burn (in which case, you selfish ass, you’re a little late), but you cannot honestly have a single brain cell AND be unsure who should get your vote.
Anybody who polls undecided voters isn’t getting a litmus test for the nation. They are determining how deep the flood waters that will end up drowning us all.
